is there a chip in my slide?
it's a S&W M&P 40. now first of all, i cannot physically look at this myself or i'd probably be able to tell for sure. my friend who is taking care of my guns for me since i'm out of the country for 3 years said he noticed something while cleaning one of them. right at the bottom of the hole where the firing pin comes out, it looks like there is a small chip. he said it feels like a chip and not standard from the factory. but he cannot say for sure. anyone else with an M&P 40 verify for me if they have a similar elongated hole in their M&P. he said there has been zero problems with it shooting. in the past 8 months he's put about a thousand rounds through it. cleaned it after each trip to the range but doesn't remember it having that elongated hole. here is a pic, i know it's crappy but that's the best one he's been able to get. thanks for your help.Attachment 57387
also, if this is a chip, is it something i need to worry about or should it be ok?
