What happened here? Just picked this up and it is in very good shape and obvious low round count. What could have caused this? Thanks!

I've seen these on some other glocks before? I think it happens when people open slide to lock position and then slam it home empty. Without the extra weight from a round being loaded. The rails take a little bit of a beating. At least thats my opinion and thought of why that happens. :whistling:

Perfectly normal in a .40 Glock. The block rides up slightly during recoil and makes the indentations. Will go so deep and then stop. Nothing to worry about.

I bought mine brand new and it formed these dents as well. I have put a lot of rounds through it with no problem. Seems to be normal for the .40.

It's caused slide peening and is common to all Glocks, most common in 40's.
