Hi all
New to board, new to gun ownership (kinda) and I have a question.

Just got a new 24/7 pro C (40 if it matters) and while cleaning I noticed what looks like "unreasonable" wear (to me).



I have the full size if anyone thinks they need a closer look.

Thanks
Steve

Edit: I have only put 200 rds through

Can you show us the right side of the frame?
Is the finish getting chewed up there?

I can take a pic, but the frame shows no sign of wear that I can see. I am concerned with the "silver colored circle near the center of my outlined area. I will draw an arrow to the questionable spot and post that up. Would a pic of the frame still be helpful?

That is the gun lock, looks like it is flipping around when you shoot and it's scrubbing the frame maybe.
Is it in the fully unlocked position?
Does it turn freely with the slide off the frame and on the frame?
Or is the paint just coming off the lock it's self?
But this is the lock.

It's actually behind the spot that moves when I turn the lock with the slide off the frame. Is this still a part of the lock? Lock is fully disengaged. (Or at least it is now, I can't say where it was before I just tried turning it to see if that was it)

Well, look on the slide a full turn to the left UNLOCKS the firearm.
A full right turn locks it.
To me, it looks like it was fired with the gun lock partially turned and I just experimented and you can squeeze the trigger with it partially locked.
Did the trigger ever feel really heavy at any time?

The trigger was never heavy for me, but I just bought it and I was told it was new.  It might not have been, as I have never applied the lock before now. 

As long as it's not going to blow up in my face I'm ok with it, but being new to guns I figured I should ask since it looked odd.
My best bet is probably to bring it back where I bought it and ask to see another one to compare.

Well, my slide is starting to show a wear line in that spot.if you look down into your slide, right side, is there wear?
This is normal, part of "Breaking the thing in"
I am getting a sharp gouge from the spot you are showing on back in my slide.
If you fire even 40 rounds, something is going to wear.
Now, if I was buying the gun as new and saw that, I'd call the dude a liar.
But you fired it and these things will get there own wear marks as you use them.
Nice thing is though, that once the gun settles in, you won't worry about it anymore, that is, unless you get a new mark.
Just part of the process.
No, I do not think it is going to blow up on ya either. :D

I suppose 200 rds can do some wear. Had I known to look inside prior to purchase I would have answered my question.

The only real wear it seems is that the silver "tube"or "circle" that is pointed to, is being pushed rearward. The lock is directly in front of it, so I can assume that someone fired the gun with the lock partially on.

Caveat Emptor and chalk it up to a lesson.

It is reassuring to have someone who knows these guns say it won't blow up in my face though. TY. :thumb:

No, make no assumption it was fired.
You did not look before hand.
No way to tell now.
When ever you buy ANY firearm, Open it up, work it, rack the slide, open the cylinder, try the trigger etc.
Ask the questions before hand.
You can buy brand new, put ONE round through it and make marks.
Why, all that energy that pushes the round out the barrel has to get dissipated somewhere.
That somewhere is your hands and the frame and slide on the pistol.
:D
