    It might be slide peening, it's normal, upon recoil the frame flexes and the front corners of the locking block rub against those areas of the slide.

    That is normal! Once the gun has been fired a bit the peening will not grow any more and at that time you can take a small flat mill file and remove the peen edge. It will not come back.

    Think of it as the slide self adjusting to the frame.
