LCP 2 slide imprefections?

I noticed that the slide on my lcp 2 has a small pit in the slide. Not sure if this is a defect in mine or it's there to serve some function. Does not seem to affect reliability (so far perfect). Just curious if other lcp 2 owners have the same thing. Picture attached

Mine has the exact same indentation in the exact same place. I can't see what function it might provide.

Tooling marks.

All versions of the LCP have had those in various places, seen only when the slide is off.

My SR 9 had a blemish on the slide and when I sent it to Ruger for another issue I mentioned it and they replaced the slide with a perfect one.

Good to go. Normal on LCPs.

Now, to address imperfections, let us look at your title.

Neither of our two LCP II's had any imperfections like that.

spoke to ruger representative. She said it was a "ventilation hole" and "something that happens when they machine the slide".
