Is this normal wear?

I got a new Zev citadel slide that I just put 100 rounds through. After shooting I started cleaning and noticed some unusual wear on it. I posted the pics below and circled where I’m talking about. Overall the slide is great but this was concerning, I’m wondering if anyone running an oem slide has the same wear.

I imagine it will only wear so far then stop. I wouldn't worry about it, but I'd shoot it until it falls apart. Maybe give Zev a call and email them your pics. They likely have slightly tighter tolerances.
Yeah I emailed Zev and Glock to ask about the tolerance of the slide. I know that little bit of worn down plastic inside the frame would most likely not affect the function of it but Im just a perfectionist. I guess I’ll carry my 43x for now.

You're a "perfectionist" but you put an aftermarket slide on your Glock.
