Charter Arms "Undercover" notch peening

I recently acquired a Charter Arms .38 snub nose revolver. This is a Stainless gun w/wood grips - not current production.

I have fired 20-25 rounds of .38 LRN (158 gr) through it and function seemed fine.

I was cleaning it afterwards and noticed slight preening on 2 of the cylinder notches. I'm pretty sure they weren't that way before.

Should I-
1 keep shooting and see what happens
2 send it off to Charter or some other 'smith to adjust
3 trade it and take my lump
4 ?????

Thanks!

Can you post pics?

I have a bunch of Charters, and haven't observed anything like that, so I'm interested in seeing what you're dealing with.

If it proves to be a problem, I'd send it to Charter to fix and just keep the gun. I think those older stainless Undercover .38s are sweet.
