    Gun Barrel Wear

    123
    I recently purchased a Sig Sauer P226 Elite, and have cleaned it after every use. When I look at the barrel, which is black, i noticed there is wear (2 silver rings) toward the end of the barrel away from the feed ramp. I lubricate the barrel with 2 drops of gun oil every time i clean the gun, which I though was sufficient. Does anyone know if this is normal wear or if this is something I need to have looked at?

    Are you talking about inside the bore or on the outside of the barrel?

    Outside of the barrel, away from the feed ramp
