I received my new 43x a few days ago to find a very noticeable gouge in the slide where the release makes contact with it. This was after I brought it home of course. I asked Glock about it and they said it’s normal wear, but I don’t feel right about it, especially with it being new. Before you ask, I had it shipped from out of state and should have taken the time to inspect it at the pawn shop that did the transfer. Should I bother trying to get this fixed?

Well, I wouldn’t be happy about that either, and it doesn’t look like normal wear to me.

I think you’re just gonna have to learn to love it. Maybe touch up the gouge so it looks prettier. It won’t effect anything, and I wouldn’t expect Glock to “fix” it. Kind of sucks.

Your first pistol came with character.

If it bothers you, contact Glock and try to make the case that you find "Normal Wear" unacceptable because a new gun should not have any wear on it.

But in my opinion, tooling marks or blemishes on the inside of the gun do not detract from the looks of the gun and certainly don't effect function, and I think it would be unreasonable to insist that they either refinish the slide or give you a whole new gun because of such inconsequential Blemishes

That's not from the slide stop lever. I wouldn't worry about it.

Neither of my 43X's have that mark, by the way.

Don't take this wrong -- suck-it-up and shoot. If you want a wall-hanger piece then yes, pitch a fit.

I saw that as well....I was like “it’s not possible that the slide stop made that mark. It doesn’t even contact the slide there. Looks like a tooling mark

Congrats on the 43x and welcome to GT. The scratch won't make a difference if you need to defend yourself or someone else. Shoot it and be safe.

Just think about all the scratches it will get when you use it for awhile. Just shoot it.

why would you have more than one of the same model? I’ll never understand that.
