    Slide/Barrel Wear

    I've got about 400 rounds through my P3AT and have some visable wear on the top of the barrel (top of chamber) and on the top of the slide. Is there anything I should be putting on it to clean it up? Oh, and it's a parkerized finish.

    Thanks,
    Michael

    Top of the chamber s normal... I think the rear of the barrel seats in the slide opening, and it will drag every shot.

    The top of the slide shouldn't wear this early parkerized... Holster?

    I didn't have a holster for a long time and the out side is trashed out. The inside is normal wear. These guns are only rated for about 40 or 50 thousand rounds at the max. That tells me that their probably only good for about half that many. I get all the dust bunnys out of mine about ever two weeks. Heck it's a working gun I don't worry to munch about it.

    Thanks everyone. I do carry it in a quality leather pocket holster.
