My G3 was fired a bunch before it was sent out. I like that it was thoroughly tested. There are lots of marks on the top, and the barrel. They show up more than some of my older Tauri because it has more of a matte finish on the barrel. My PT111 G2 has a polished finish which doesn't burnish like the matte finish. I would love it if the factory put a few hundred rounds through each pistol, but that might not be practical.
