actually the barrel looks to be light on material.. looks to have witness material showing, shown by absence of machined surface.. circled in red also..

They might do that by design as to speed up production and tolerances not needing to be held on those surfaces, but doesnt seem right to me, seems like the barrel face/breech would need to be close tolerance, wouldnt be the first time I was wrong...

You could probably fire untold numbers of cartridges without seeing anything different in the pistol and not have any problems with it. Something dinged the spot on the slide but it is outside the critical surfaces and will have no bearing on the functioning of the arm.

If it were mine, I would just ignore it and enjoy using the pistol. The two protrusions on the barrel and the chamber determine headspace. Any flashing on the barrel as shown in the picture has nothing to do with functioning, as it does not fire a rimmed cartridge.

I have about 3k through my SR and no marks there of any kind. It's almost like that barrel lig at 1 o'clock is too far to the right and hitting the slide. jmho

In the 2nd picture i posted of the op's barrel, if you look towards the bottom of the feed ramp on the right side, you can also see more porosity..

After seeing "kjphilippona's" pictures of his sr40 i can see why the slide wear happened on mine. I have almost no chamfer on the side with the wear mark, making a brutal impact when the barrel comes back.

I just looked over my 40 and there is NO wear or dings like shown above. I've ran a lot of rounds through mine and as you can see its clean of wear. Camera angle makes it look dirty but its not.

Now that's what one should look like...I'd still see about getting that dinged one sent down to Ruger to be replaced and have them try to determine why it happened as well...no sense throwing in another one just to have the same thing occur.

It looks like something hard has been shut in the slide, like maybe a gun lock? Just my thoughts.

Perfectly normal. I've got both the 9c and the 40c but the 40 is in black and it doesn't show on it. My SS 9c looks the same and runs great!

That area takes a lot of abuse when a round is fired. With FrogLube, I can get most of that off, but regular cleaners didn't phase it.

Ah. Didn't see that. I doubt it would cause problems, though.
