    Is this NEW xdm .45 compact i just bought USED?

    Hey everybody,

    I have been around firearms my entire life but just purchased one to finally call my own. I went with the Springfield xdm .45 compact. When i got home and field stripped it I noticed some rings around the outside of the barrel. I know this is a common occurrence after being fired but is it normal for marks of this magnitude to be on a "new" firearm? Any feedback would be great. Thanks!

    All I will say is MOST firearm makers TEST fire every weapon before it leaves their factory......

    Yes but when I went to a different store and compared the barells of other xdms there were no marks like this. That is why I am curious about them.

    Looks a little excessive to me, from just a test firing.....

    Thats what Im thinking. I would not have minded buying a used gun. but what i do mind is paying full price for something that may have been used.

    doesnt mean it was test fired just once.....it could have had a failure when it was initially test fired and had to be reworked.... perhaps a couple of times ... then perhaps it had a couple of mags ran thru it just to make sure it was peachy.....
