Question PPS M2 Barrel Peened near feed ramp?

So I was just cleaning my PPS M2 last night and I noticed something interesting on the barrel. There is a small peened mark on the right side near the feed ramp that is bare metal, and not the normal black of the barrel finish. This spot lines up perfectly with the trigger mechanism that protrudes from the frame. that mechanism sits in the pocket of this peened spot when the pistol is assembled and the slide is pulled back.

This pistol has 450 rounds through it and is about a month old.

I have attached an image showing the spot in question. I am curious, does anyone else's PPS M2 have this spot?

I was going to contact Walther about it but their website has been down all day.

Edit: I wouldn't minds some opinions on if people consider this safe to fire with this going on. This is my carry pistol.

Mine has the same mark. That's where the extractor makes contact with the barrel. I'm inclined to say it is normal and won't get any worse, but others may think differently.

The barrel lug is worn down and appears a corner has been damaged. I suggest you contact Ft Smith. Just curious...did you purchase new, how many rounds fired and have you experienced any issues?

chandler, I purchased this new a month ago and it has fired 450 rounds of FMJs and JHPs of various grain flawlessly. I have updated the original post to reflect this.

I found this last night so of course Walther is closed till Monday

Normal! The classics did that, too.

It is definitely from the trigger bar thing that comes up and out of the frame. As you can see in this attached photo, it sits right in that pocket.

It also seems harder to reassemble now like it hangs up a little on that when I pull the slide back on.

gtmtnbiker98, I know the relief on that side of the barrel is normal but are you saying the small amount of scalloped metal is also normal?

Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't be upset to learn that, it just seems odd to have exposed metal there.

I have three of them, all have the slight peening. It's fine. It won't get any worse.
