Its called wear... the pistol and holster have lots of cosmetic wear from being fired thousands of times. The gun gets carried a lot. It gets banged into the seatbelts and car doors and door frames.. the gun gets fired and fired and then fired more. I have a lot of gen 2 glocks... at least 3 g19's and two g21's, and a g20 and g23 and g22's .. and g17's. Seems almost every glock i see posted is super pristine. Thats great if you collect them i guess.. my glocks get used and get wear and i dont care what they look like. I have a g19 gen 2 police gun that looks like it slid down the road a half mile while the cop on a motorcycle slid maybe.. hope he was fine. The gun still works great. I keep all my glocks clean and oiled and full of hornady critical duty ammo.. i like them that way... i just thought we have a lot of new gun owners on the website that might not know about a gun that looks like it worked for a living. Battle worn fake wear... makes me ill. If you need to pretend you have used your glock you have hit a new low. So use your guns and enjoy the look you get from honest use.. it will set you free not worrying about getting a scratch...it really will.
