XD Wear

Here is the wear on the Melonite finish that I was mentioning. This is somewhere between 800 and 1,000 rounds and 4 years worth use in various conditions including blowing sand. There is starting to be a very slight amount of the same kind of wear near the front of the barrel where the slide rubs and there is one spot in the bottom left of the slide that is starting to show the slightest wear as well. No rust has ever formed.

it happens... if it doesn't show any wear its either brand new or a safe queen

Yeah, my Springfield 1911 had a lot more wear than that after that many rounds. This looks pretty good. I would have guessed hundreds of rounds, not thousands.
