    To my eye they look too uniform to be damage. I honestly can't recall what mine looks like right now, but I'm sure some one around here will help.

    Well they aren't the same size and they bulge out a little bit.

    It is called "slide peening" and is totally normal. It is more common with the Glock 40 calibers and it will eventually stop and it will not affect anything.

    Yeah, my 26 has some little dimples there too. I wouldn't worry about it.

    I'm quite glad you posted this actually, when I disassembled my 26 to check, I found it really needed a wipe down inside! Little bits of lint and junk.

    An intruder will be incapacitated by tear gas or oven spray, but if shot with a .357 Magnum will get angry and kill you.

    Nothing to worry about...

    It looks normal to me too.

    Reassemble, shoot, clean, repeat until you run out of ammo or it hurts to smile.
    There is something about firing 4,200 thirty millimeter rounds/min that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
