It's a rather deep/technical subject and I'm not sure I could give you the true answer but here is something on the subject matter.

Not all Glocks have UDC (Upturned Dust Cover - illiterate/lazy people call it 'pig nose' - a confusing and non-descriptive term, as it doesn't resemble a pig's nose at all), it's harmless, has been around since the earliest Glocks, and warrants no concern.
