Mine Is Worse

Hello,
I have researched a ton on Buffer wear, and while most is common, there are cases of part issues. With less than 100 rounds I am seeing wear during cleaning, on the buffer and shine on the tail of the carrier
going to try to load a pic. Please let me know what ya think.
The wear marks are due to the raised burr on the rear of the bolt carrier.
Mine has chewed up the face of my buffer which looks just like yours but much worse. After a bit the buffer and carrier reach an accommodation and the wear does not get any worse.
It does look like $hit though.
And it's a sign of poor quality control since it would be quite easy to remove the burr on the carrier during production.
Thanks

A brand new gun that's not been fired is not going to look like a brand new gun that has not been fired after 100 rounds.

Not arguing the bur, but the finish will take it's initial wear.

Welcome to the forum, Larry. Your gun looks pretty normal to me. As I advised the OP a couple of years ago, get back out to the range and shoot that puppy. :)
