    Yes if you paid for a new gun you should get a new gun. The gun may be fine, but I would be upset for being decieved.

    I will say Sig's barrel finish wears fairly quickly, but that is excessive for a new gun. All of the Sigs I've owned have had faint to nearly non-existant marks from the factory test firing. My current P229 SCT doesn't look that worn after ~ 2000 rounds.

    One trick with Sig P series guns is to run them wet; use grease rather than oil on the barrel and rails and wear is very minimal.

    I've started using a light synthetic grease to lube contact points in my guns,slide rails and barrels,it stays put and once the barrel starts heating up it really lubes everything well

    I don't really think its was fired before I bought it other then the factory. I thank it just sat on the shelf for a while and was played with to much.

    I own 3 Sigs, trust me, that gun had at least a couple of hundred rounds fired based on that picture. I'm being conservative, My P229 and P239 don't show that much wear with 750 and 500 rounds respectively.

    Should you be concerned? I would if it was sold to me as "New" yes.
    .As to the gun itself, likely not an issue, but do yourself a favor and use light grease such as TW25B or Slide Glide on the barrel area where the wear is occurring.

    I really don't think I'm going to worry about the barrel. It looks like it something that just happens with Sig barrels. While researching on line I found this video.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sVYqv...e_gdata_player

    As a side note, this type of thing makes a good case to inspect the firearm before the you buy it and leave the store with it... I will always look at the gun that I am buying, whether it comes off the shelf or out of the back room. If the local gun store isn't willing to let me field strip it down before I buy it, then I will go elsewhere.

    I did look it over before buying it just didn't field strip it. But I really not going to worry about it the gun functions flawlessly.

    Well I called Sig and talk to them about the issue and was told that it was perfectly normal. That they test fire each gun before it leaves and there are wear marks visible when they pack it for shipping.
