    Try lubricating the exterior of your barrel with a good gun oil or light gun grease, depending on your climate. Also, lubricate the flat, top area above the chamber that slides under the slide during cycling. Also lightly lube the underlug that locks up with the locking block in the frame, but not the guide rod recess.

    Seriously, lube it and shoot it. My first XD looked like that because I didn't lube it well enough.

    That wear will diminish significantly when the surfaces get mated together through normal functioning.

    On my newest XDm OSP, I cleaned & lubed the barrel, guide rod, spring, barrel lug & guide rails even before a hundred hand cycles.

    @romanson - As Ben Samuel noted, many of us have answered your question: this specific question, before......

    Question about XDM finis

    Is this normal please

    And once again, yes, this is normal. :) Lubrication or not, it'll happen. And as you use the gun more and more, it will continue to accrue more wear. In the second thread, you'll see my pictures of my XDm9 at approximately 30,000 rounds.
