    This is my only semi auto pistol. It's a SW Sigma .40

    The slide is hitting the block and scratching it:

    That's normal.

    The only way to keep your gun from acquiring normal "working marks," is to keep it in a box, in the safe and only handle it with gloves. Oh, and never shoot it.

    OR, embrace the marks as "character building" for your gun!

    Ah, that sucks. Ah well, it's made to be shot and it will be shot some more.

    Yes. The barrel hood of all pistols utilizing the tilting barrel locking system is a bearing surface.

    Me, I kinda like the look of a well-exercised gun... ;)

    Needs more character! You can still read the caliber!

    My first handgun was big monster HK .45Auto. The black coating wore on top the same way.
