    Damage to my gun, is it serious?

    I was at the range earlier today firing some Blazer .40 cal ammo and I noticed that my Sig p239 does NOT like this particular ammo. I had a jam once every reload at least. Just to make sure it's the ammo and not my gun I bought some PMC .40's and fired.... Fired like a dream.

    Anyways, I get home from the range and sit down to clean my Sig P239 and noticed this: http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3423/...1d50b8.jpg?v=0

    That's a pic of my P239 grip assembly. You will see where somehow the black coating was ripped away. The gun still fires ok, I'm just wondering is this something I should be concerned about? Is there a way to repair it? Do I even need to repair it?

    Thanks.

    I'm not a gun expert so I won't pretend to know for sure. To me that looks like where the slide travels (correct me if I'm wrong). I think, depending on how many rounds you have fired, it is normal for wear like this to occur. My friends gun (also a Sig, not sure which one) has similar wear. But I'm sure it is possible to have it re-coated.

    I hope someone else has a more definite answer, maybe my friend needs to get his repaired too? Seems odd to me though, Sigs are generally great guns.

    I took some better pics... these were the best I could take to give you guys an idea:

    Here is probably the best one I can give: http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3661/...e298ee.jpg?v=0

    And the one on the front of the slide: http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3463/...62e315.jpg?v=0

    Any other opinions?

    My P220 had the same wear and Sig re-coated it for me. I don't think it is anything serious.

    My P220 has the same thing happening to it between slide and frame. Only on the left side, and after some 500+ rounds, appears to have stopped. Just one of those things. Just like Glocks slide peening. Nothing to be alarmed about in my opinion. Normal wear and tear/breaking it in.

    Sounds about right! My P239 has about 500 rounds through it too. Thanks.

    Looks like normal wear.

    It won't stay new forever, unless you leave it in the box and never fire it.

    Just wait until you get some good holster wear on it.
    I will support gun control when you can guarantee all guns are removed from this planet. That includes military and law enforcement. When you can accomplish that, then I will be the last person to lay down my gun. Then I will carry the weapon that replaces the gun.

    That is just your slide shooting itself in to your frame. No, you do not need to recoat it.
    A super slippery heavier slide/frame lube would be something worthwhile for you to buy to lubricate your rails.
    I recommend
