    Guys ...

    I'm running a 6" KKM barrel and a 22lbs Wolff Spring. I've noticed some wear on the rear lug that looks odd to me. However, this is my first Glock, so I dont exactly know what normal wear looks like? Anybody out there that can give me an idea?

    The gun runs flawlessly ... never a problem.

    Thanks much ...

    Kind of hard without seeing picture of the wear. Even though the KKM barrels are drop in some may need a little fitting especially the 6" barrels. Are you running the extended slide as well?

    Thanks guys ....

    From what I'm seeing, I think I'm ok. The area I was worried over was the edge of the rear lug. Here's a pic.

    are you running some sort of lube on the lug?
    its one of the few points on a glock that should be lubed

    I generally give that area a light coat of RemOil. I added arrows to indicate what I'm talking about.

    Thanks ...

    I know that Kevin at KKM provides good customer service so he might have the best answer for you.

    I don't thing you have any thing to worry about...just continue to observe the situation.

    all the kkm's i've had have a little ding on the corner of the rear lug. maybe the metal is softer? maybe oversized and hitting the trigger bar? i dunno. they keep on working though.

    call kkm
