    I don't have very many rounds through either of my Glocks but I don't see any scratching. Just some rubbing on the magazines where the magazine catch rubs against the magazine until it pops into the cut-out in the magazine for the magazine catch.

    Is that really a problem for you, because its normal for any magazine fed firearm.

    Well, this is the best i could do..
    The right side had normal polish style marks, i accept that as normal wear..
    But the left side has some scratch marks, and in the magazine well it seems more worse than on the magazine it self...

    And I know; I'm friggin OCD! ;)

    It looks like there may have been a rough spot in the frame that scratched the mag. It may be a little more than normal but still not enough to worry about. It has probably already worn down the rough spot and won't get any worse.

    Just checked mine and it looks the same way more or less. I wouldn't worry about it.

    I think all my Glocks are getting scratched up inside the magazine well area.
    It's my fault.
    I've always slammed in fresh magazines. Usually with enough force that often the slide releases and chambers the top round. Kind of handy in a competition.

    It's nothing to worry about. Think of your Glock as a well made tool.

    On the scale of importance, I'd say this ranks somewhere below holster wear, and somewhere above global whining.

    Either you're unevenly loading the magazine or tactical reloading too fast that would cause the scratches at that area.

    I've trained and compete with my G35 with 10K rounds and have yet to have major scratches on the magwell.

    I have around 5,000 rounds through my G26 now and the Mag well looks like new. Not a mark. I'd never looked (before this thread) and was surprised at how pristine it still is.

    I primarily use two range magazines and apparently they are nice, smooth and a good fit. But I could see how a magazine with a rough spot or loading technique could cause what you are seeing.
