I have a 340sc prefix CHM, I carry routinely as a back up and off duty while cycling and the lacquer coating has worn off on the back strap. The little pistol shoots accurately and carrying it is a dream. I will say full power .357's are a bit punishing to my big paw, but short barrel load CCI gold dots are manageable. Seems almost unbelievable that a weapon that costs as much as these, would have this cosmetic issue. Has anyone else experienced this or similar problems with the finish?
