Barrel finish chip - is this a problem?
 
1 Attachment(s)
Hi,

I've put about 450 rounds through my new G19 and noticed today while cleaning that the black finishing or maybe Tenifer treatment seems to have chipped. A picture is below. This is my first firearm and I wanted to ask a few questions for the experts:

1. Will this affect the functioning of the firearm?
2. Is this a chip in the finishing or the Tenifer itself? I'm wondering about longevity and resistance to rust. If just finish, no issues there.
3. Is this common? Are there others that have similar nicks/chips?

Thank you for any help!

No, absolutely not

2. Is this a chip in the finishing or the Tenifer itself? I'm wondering about longevity and resistance to rust. If just finish, no issues there.

Your picture will not enlarge, so I can't tell by looking, but my instinct says that it is irrelevant. Do a search on "tenifer" to understand what it is (more a treatment than a finish). if you want, you can hit it with a spot of oil, or (more work involved) some paint.

3. Is this common? Are there others that have similar nicks/chips?

no, and yes. Chips, nick, and wear can occur anywhere.

Keep shooting and collecting marks, relax, enjoy.

you should see how my guns get (slide and frames, grips) after a few month of CCW, enjoy your Glock.
