New M&P Finish Worn - should I bother?
I purchased an M&P 340 yesterday - great J-frame and I look forward to years of reliable ownership.
The attached pics show rub marks where the cylinder comes close to the frame (don't know the exact name of those areas) - the finish appears worn down to the metal. In opening and closing the cylinder it does not appear to be touching the frame so I don't know how the finish is worn away in these areas.
Thing is, I saw no less than five brand-new blued or matte j-frames of various flavors in my range today - they all had the same exact wear spots.
The gun is brand new and I have not shot it yet.
Should I bother calling Smith about it or just accept it as 'normal'?
