    The little dimple in your first pic is normal. General concensus is that it's a remnant of a hardness check during the manufacturing or inspection process.

    If you polish it it is more succeptible to rust if not maintained, yes. I wouldn’t do it. The gun is a duty weapon, meant for some serious abuse. I Had wear marks after first few mags but nothing changed drastically 12000 rounds later. Yes over 12000, I shoot a lot and I don’t have to pay for ammo .
