      My p226 has tiny scratch on the slide.

      I noticed a tiny nick/scratch along the slide rail of my p226 when field stripped it last night.
      Is that normal? It still shoots beautifully, but it still concerns me.

      I have 3 sons and after teaching them to shoot years ago I dont think I had a single firearm that DIDNT have a scratch or ding,
      If it still functions properly I wouldnt sweat it.

      I guess you'll need to decide if your a shooter or a gun collector.

      Shooter: dings and scratches mean your doing your part. (and they adds a little personality)

      Collector: You should be extremely concerned, your investment is devaluing.

      That indicates a defective gun and is very dangerous.

      I'll give you $100.00 for it, and I'll even pay for shipping.

      Don't let him take advantage of you; I'll go $125.00.

      I used to be that guy - complained about scratches.

      Now, tons of guns later, and many years since I bought my 1st one in 1993.... I know that guns get scratched thru use, no matter how careful U are... And, I'm not even talking about a gun that gets carried in a holster.

      I can sympathize, as I previously had friends tease me about my "museum pieces" - haha.

      I do have some gun I carry, and others that never get holstered. No point in beating them all to hell. But, I still shoot them all, and nothing stays perfect unless you just lock it away and don't shoot it at all.

      Look at it as a car. It sure sucks as you get rock damage (on the front end) and spots ya can't get off over time. But, it happens. 4 years after owning a new car - even if ya wash it 2x a week - you are still gonna have some visible wear. Same with a gun.

      the scratch is only noteworthy if you got it by pistol whipping someone who is now lucky they aint shot

      I called Germany, and told them your problem, and they started singing Auch du leiber Demonio......
