    I just picked up a new P99 Compact, and when comparing it to my well-used P99 I see a lot of wear on the striker of the P99. I thought the striker was hardened steel and shouldn't wear. The gun works fine.

    Am I looking at:
    1. Normal wear that will eventually require striker replacement
    2. Abnormal wear that requires striker replacement now
    3. Deliberate modification for some unknown reason
    4. Nothing - I'm crazy.

    The area in question is the bottom left of the striker in these photos - this is where the trigger bar contacts the striker on a DA pull. The dirty one is the P99, the clean one is the P99C
