    Slide Rail Rubbing

    This is a Sig P220 it has about 500 rounds of various 230g FMJ with no issues. what I have noticed during cleaning is the black finish is rubbing off on the top of the rail on opposite sides of the hammer, is this normal? Also have noticed a 'High Spot" on the side of the left hand rail, it is starting to wear on the inside of the grove near this high spot. Is the high spot normal? trying to get pictures here, it never seams to work,,

    I have some of the black finish coming off the left side frame rail on the inside of the rail about an inch long on my P220 SAO. Figure mine has about the same amount of rounds put through it as yours. I think it's done doing whatever it is, and doesn't seem to be getting any worse. But I have been paying particular attention lubing the slide rails because of that. I'll try and put up a pic of mine.

    Nothing to worry about. They all do it to a certain extent. I've got 6 of them, they all show a bit of rubbing.

    Well, it sort of figures in a way......stainless slide, and alloy frame.

    Thanks Ram Rod,, the picture you put up is better than mine, and it looks almost identical to the rail on my pistol. I do see what looks like the same 'high spot' on the upper portion of your pistol just above and behind the rubbing as is on mine.. OK I wont call Sig and YELL at them all day. Thanks
