I would not sweat that a bit. I don't have the Bodyguard, but my P-11 does that and so does my SCCY CPX-1 Gen 2. I had a Ruger LCP that did that also. I think the small ones tend to do that. I have almost 800 rounds through the Kel Tec and around 150 through the CPX-1 without any issues. I had about 400 rounds through the Ruger before I traded it off. Never had any issues there either. Personally, I don't know why that does that with the barrel, but I do not think it is a manufacturing flaw or anything like that.
