New J Frame and LCR, should i be worried?

I just picked up a brand new Ruger LCR and J Frame for the wife and I. Noticed a couple of things that, after thinking about it for a while, made me wonder if it is anything i should worried about

Let me say first off, if it is purely cosmetic it doesn't bother me

The first thing is on my LCR, there is what looks to be a scratch on the outside of the top strap. I do want to make sure this is not a hairline fracture or something that actually affects frame




The second thing is on my J Frame. Inside there is a large place of bare metal. I know this will make the gun dangerous to shoot or affect the shooting, but does this have the potential to have enough rust issues to worry about? I will keep it cleaned and oiled, but this is a pretty large area of exposed metal. Seems deeper than holster wear would be. Also is this common for S&W? Honestly seems a little sloppy of a finish job

My 442 has the same mark as your J-Frame. It has no rust. It's a few years old. As for the LCR mine has no mark in that area. My LCR357 has at least 3500 rounds. It shows only wear on the finish from carry.
