This is my first post on here, so go easy on me.
I recently just purchased my Springfield XD 45 tactical, and so far I’m very happy with it. I took it to the range last weekend, and put about 50 rounds through it (not much I know).
I was cleaning it this weekend when I noticed a small dent on the slide component near the recoil spring /guide port (Apologies for wrong nomenclature). Knowing that the slide is forged steel, what’s the likelihood that this is a manufacturing defect versus something that I inflicted within the first two weeks of ownership?
My bigger question is, from what you can see is there any reason to believe this would adversely affect the functionality of the firearm?
I appreciate any thoughts you all might have. Thanks so much.
