Evening, Addicts. New member here with a few new members to the 1911 family. I recently knocked a few items off of my 1911 bucket list and snagged a Springfield Professional and full rail TRP. So far, I've taken them both on two outings. The first was mostly for suppressor ready firearms, so neither saw much action. ~20 rounds each. After a cleaning on both pistols, I took them out for day two. 18 rounds of Sig Sauer 230 grain FMJ target rounds into the Professional, I noticed some unusual marring around the flare of the ejection port. I immediately set it down, got the opinion of the range officers followed by some baffled looks and shrugs, documented the damage for Springfield customer service and put it away. Disheartened by my $3,700 semi custom I've been chasing for so many years beating itself up, I called it a day and let the buddy of mine I took to the range with me to pick his spirits up have at the TRP. It ate up a good 300 rounds without issue and not so much as a single cosmetic defect. The ol' boy had a helluva time and left the range, targets in hand with ragged holes and a grin ear to ear. His day was made. After getting home, I emailed Springfield Customer Service with a detailed outline of events and respective photos. I asked if repairs would be in order and if refinishing the slide would be a viable option. They responded quickly and advised I ship it in for a closer look. They ate the logistics fees, which was very nice. But I got a follow up email from a representative today, stating that their technicians looked it over and determined that the wear was normal. They informed me that refinishing the slide would cost $150 and for the complete pistol, $250, but went on to warn that the damage would only occur again, as this is normal wear from the cases being ejected. I've owned a handful of 1911 pistols. All Springfields with various finishes and many... many rounds. But I've never seen this before. And with under 50 rounds, this is just unprecedented. So I wanted to reach out to you. Is this type of wear typical of this model? Of this Black T finish?
