Greetings PT-145 owners,
I have owned my gen 3 PT-145 since May 08. It had to make a trip back to the mother ship once due to a warped slide. Since then the only other issue I have had is the mag release. I have about 500 rounds through it So far. I have a couple of wear questions.

As you can see in the photos there is quite a lot of scoring along the top of the chamber block. The scoring is being caused by the underside of the slide. I thought of polishing both of these area to minimize the scoring but then wondered if anyone else sees this on their PT’s?

The second question is there the where on the slide where the barrel chamber and slide lock up. Is this normal wear?

Thank you in advance for any advice.
Sorry for the picture jumble. It keeps shuffling them after I post.

Some folks feel polishing is only cosmetic, but it does help with reliability.

I use "Mother's Mag Polish" on the feed ramp and top of the barrel above the chamber of all my Millennium Pro models.
Thanks for the replies folks. That was going to be my next question, (if the wear appeared normal). Would polishing the barrel above the chamber and the under portion of the slide where wearing already shows reduce or eliminate the scoring?

I agree, (although I have never had any feed issues) that polishing the barrel would reduce friction. I just think it's unsightly.
