Barely noticable and unless im mistaken the metal is the same inside and out. Personally I wouldnt worry about it.

Please do not be offended, as I do not mean this to be offensive, but on many SA pistols a scratch or gouge by the take-down lever is called an "idiot scratch". It is from improperly removing or turning the take-down lever.

On a 1911:
Takedown scratch

On an XD9:
Scratch on XD9 - XDTalk Forums - Your XD/XD(m) Information Source!

On rifles and pistols:
The idiot scratch.. - The Firing Line Forums

On a Ruger:
Takedown Pin Removal
How could that not be offensive? lol

I don't know how I would've done it incorrectly its pretty simple on the pt 92 push the button on one side and push down on latch correct?

There really is no way to Idiot Scratch with the take down slide removal on a PT92 series pistol. Well maybe if your not paying attention and holding a screwdriver at the same time.

My view on the matter is that the pistol comes with a warranty which is for the Lifetime of the Pistol, however this does not cover the appearance of the pistol for that same period of time. If it bothers you, and I can see how it could since you paid for a new, perfect pistol, then call Taurus Customer Service and see if they won't replace it for you. I would also get them to pay shipping both ways.

Good Luck.
