Just bought this sunday, put a couple drops of lube on barrel and rod, then went out and shot 50 rounds though it, and already have this wear. Is this normal or should I be looking for some warrenty work?

Mine looked close to that after the first 50 rounds, but I made sure to lubricate it up before the next rounds went through. I have 1000 rounds through it now, and I'll post a few pics when I pick it up from my Dad's house tomorrow.

All pistols that have similar barrel arrangements do this; it has to do with how the slide and barrel rub together. If I get around to it, I might put up some pictures of various 9mm/.380 pistols and their barrel/guide rod wear at some point in the future.

Use synthetic grease on the barrel and slide to minimize that wear and make it operate smoother. There are many quality products on the market designed specifically for guns, but being a cheap SOB, I use synthetic break caliper grease when I use any grease at all. Mostly run it dry or with a dry lube like 100% silicone or similar.

The one area you really DON'T want to grease or oil is the striker. Run it dry or use a dry lube.

Definitely normal. Any metal to metal contact will create wear rather quickly, especially when heat and such fast G-forces.
