Mine was the same way, I thought it was from the slide being racked by either me or other customers while the gun was on display at gun the store from where I bought. If bought online it may have been where the manufacturer tested the slide? I really don't think it takes but a time or two as far as the slide being racked to scrape the paint on the recoil guide rod.

Mine is out in the glove box of the car or I'd look and see if mine looks like that. But every gun Springfield ships is shot at the factory. Then, if you get one that's been on display, theres no telling how many people have racked the slide or dry fired it, especially on something like an XDs, which draws alot of attention when it pops up in a gun shop because of how infrequently they show up. I've got an XDs and I still have to play with one anytime I come across one in a gun shop. LOL

As long as it functions, I wouldn't worry about it. It's the recoil spring. Its inside the gun. No one can see it.

Yes that is normal. The factory test fire and racking the slide would cause it.

Here is a thread that explains why that part is getting marked up.

Is it a good idea to put some grease on the head of the pin and onto the barrel area that it sits in????

That would be fine. I just lightly lube mine as I always have with all of my Springfields. Then I put a dab of oil in the notch that holds the rod.

Mine looked the exact same way after 50 rounds. After 111 more rounds it looks the same. I figure as long as the gun is running whatever caused it is no big thing.
