I bought a new glock 21 here about 250 rounds ago. I have been finding metal shavings after about 50 rounds. They seem to be slowing down now and I have switched to plated rounds. I was told to use them and see if it goes away. I believe I have found what is wearing. It seems to the metal guides that the slide is held on by. You can see a wear pattern in all four, on top and underneath. Is this normal so far after buying a new glock? I was told they tighten everything up due to accurancy, but hoes does that work when they tight it all up, and it wears off causing play anyways?

The metal flakes are most likely coming off of the recoil spring. This happens when new.

The 'wear' marks on the slide rails are from grinding at the factory.

What things were you told are tightened up for accuracy?
