    Glock 27 "scratch marks"

    Cleaning my Glock 27 EDC gun today after a trip to the range. I noticed three scratch marks. Two on the slide, and one on the barrel. The marks line up. I wonder if this is just "normal wear and tear" or something serious that needs fixing. See the picture below. One of the entire assembly with red marks showing the scratches, the other one a details shot of the affected area.

    I purchased the gun new, maybe a year ago, and it has maybe 1,000 rounds through it.

    You should post this on Glock Talk. They are the Glock experts.

    i got several glocks and i have found when you get a large number of rounds down range you will get some marks. i also have the same marks in my g27, g22, and g23. i think one of my g19 has them also. don't know about my g36, and g30, don't shoot it much. had a g17 once and it had marks.

    I would say they are normal wear marks. My G23 has about 3000 rounds through it and it has those marks also.

    Ramrod can probably offer more definitive evidence, but we have one with quite a few rounds through it with the same marks.

    Well, those are probably typical. Slide peening and the mark on the bottom of the barrel is likely from the recoil spring and it may even rub off with a bit of work. I believe the Glock owners manual mentions peening of the slide. Nothing to be alarmed about. You can always go here for some quick info:

    My G33 has those same marks.
    I think they are caused by normal
    play in the slide when it closes
    after firing.
    It is not being caused by the part
    of the frame the slide moves
    on ,but by the locking block
    part number 22 in your manual.
    There is just enough play in the slide
    to let it (the slide ) to bounce down.
    into it (part #22)as it shuts.
    As there is only so much play, the
    dents can only get can deep
    IMO.
    But you can still check with GLOCK
    to by sure

    My G26 has marks just like that. I would guess it is normal. They do not look very deep.

    Never worked for me either. They need a verifiable ISP e-mail address. All of mine are web based. Try this one...I'm there once in a while. It's sort of slow on a good day, but some knowledge to tap there as well. GlockCarry
    Then of course my most favorite quoted or linked to Glock site is this one: The Glock FAQ

    Those peening marks are only seen in the high pressure loads like .40 and .357. They will not occur in 9mm or .45. They are normal and nothing to worry about.

    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
    You cannot choose the conditions for a gunfight, so train in all conditions!

    Peening like yours is normal. Any chipping or flaking of metal is a call to Glock.
    Training means learning the rules. Experience means learning the exceptions.
