    I was wondering if it is normal to have some prominent ware on the top of the barrel at the breech. It seems as if the slide is creating the bluing to come off. There is some streaking and two prominent lines where the steel is showing through. No problems just a little unsightly. I just want to see if this is a normal occurance. Look forward to everyones feedback. Thanks.

    Polish the barrel and you'll hardly notice them.

    Unsightly?! When someone looks at your pistol and they see the wear marks it says your pistol does not sit idle in the safe, unshot, uncarried. When I went to the funshop last week to get a new front sight for my Glock there was another fella there doing the same thing. He brought his gun in and took it apart so they could put the sights on for him. He said he had his G23 for a couple years. I been around Glocks enough to know what a couple years of shooting does to the finish on the barrel. From the new looking barrel with no wear marks he would have been lucky to have shot 300 rounds in these couple years.

    Don't be that guy. When shooters see that wear they know how it got there.......

    Again. These are man tools. Shoot it every chance you get and wear that sucker in. Adds character and let's people know you use it!

    Oh, I dont mind the marks, I just wanted to make sure that the gun was functioning properly. I love shooting, I just picked up the gun three weeks ago and already have 1000 or more rounds through it. It is a true man tool, lol. Nothing like driving nails with a true nail driver. I appreciate all the responses. I love this site, any question can get an answer.
