    I bought a NEW Glock 22 Gen4 40S&W and have not fired it as of yet but have found some unusual chips ( defects ) on the inside of the POLYMER
    frame in the area of the where the spring compresses when shot or slide is pulled back to lock open.

    Does anyone else have these markings (defects) on their frame? Please sound off if you do. Has anyone contacted Glock about this problem ? If so what did they tell you ?

    It is normal, Glock is aware of it, it does not affect operation or get worse with use.

    It looks like the search database is being rebuilt and/or not working properly at the moment but there are threads about it.

    The metal that is showing through in places wasn't even covered in the first couple generations. It's crappy cosmetics on the inside of the gun, and nothing more.

    Another "problem" that's totally normal....Hooray
    My Gen 4 22 has it & has not gotten any worse. Just shoot the gun & try to be happy about it.

    Maybe if they put the search window where someone could find it, it might help!!

    ive seen other threads on this, and honestly, that is pretty crappy.....I know glock is a no-frills type combat weapon that is mass produced, but that just looks cheap.....

    I hear you, however it's common on polymer based frames including but not limited to HK, Smith Wesson. Gotta go to a steel or aluminum frame to not see this.

    See post #3 in this thread for irony. You don't even need to search for it.

    It's a rubber gun, not a Colt SAA. Ignore its little uglies and just shoot the hell out of it.

    As long as it dosent split into 2 pieces you are fine, there is wear and tear and accidental scratching of frames and slides all the time even a few new guns have had a little marring or a scratch, maybe it happened at the dealers place or where ever, as long as it works

    Rusty Shackleford is correct. Attached are some pics I found on this forum when researching same issue with my new Gen 4 G17. It has exactly the same marks as yours. Apparently the Gen 1s didn't even bother to polymer over the insert. It bothered me at first, for now, I'm looking at it as a non-issue.
