    Gen 4 - unusual wear mark on barrel


    Seeing as how i am completely new to handguns, much less glocks... I have no idea what would be classified as normal wear on the components.

    Currently i am noticing a line forming on the barrel where apparently the recoil spring is coming in contact with it. Is this normal? I have put about 500ish rounds through it now and everytime i clean the gun i make sure the back of the spring housing is seated in the rounded portion of the barrel where its supposed to sit. Is the spring supposed to be rotated to a certain point?

    Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
    This is my Glock. There are many others like it, but this one is mine.
