    Glock Problem?

    Google "Glock slide preening." Yes, it's normal, especially on the 40 S&W guns. I have an older G22 Gen 3 that looks about the same as yours. So far, with over 1,000 through my g23 gen 4, I haven't noticed much.

    Not a "Glock problem". Looks like maybe a "maintenance problem". At least in the photo, looks like old, gummy lubricant or solvent residue under the slide--collecting dust and particles. This area should be clean and dry appearing. Glock recommends only a small drop of high quality oil on the rails....nowhere else. Excess oil leads to collection of dust and dirt which in turn act like sandpaper as the weapon cycles.

    Additionally, you did not mention how many rounds have been through this weapon over the years. No gun that is used and fired regularly lasts forever (not even a Glock).

    My question is, what would cause or is causing these types of gouges to occur?

    You do not know Glocks. This is slide peening and perfectly normal in Glocks with any amount of rounds through them.

    When I read the word "gouge" I imagined "a scooped-out groove or cavity". When I looked at the photo I see little more than finish wear & the beveling of sharp edge. Slide peening is common for autoloading handguns, especially for high-pressure calibers running past-worn recoil springs. I might make it a bigger issue than it really is to negotiate the purchase price in my direction. But then I would install a fresh recoil spring & fearlessly run...the crap outta' that pistol!

    My 1998 G17 Gen3 had big wear marks when I bought it used. I took it to my local Glock gunsmith. He said file the roughness out. Just the rough spot. Lube it up and shoot the snot of it. I did and haven't had any problems. He said it's the locking block and slide coming together. Normal.

    After many rounds through it my old G23 that I gave to my son is just starting to show those marks. My son said he took a little steel wool to it but since there weren't any sharp edges he's not worrying about it. It made him clean & lube a little more thoroughly.
