New PPQ 9mm recoil spring/frame wear?

Hi everyone, looking for some help on my new PPQ I picked up yesterday. Put about 100 hundred rounds through it today, ran flawless. Love it. very accurate. When I disassembled for cleaning, I noticed the silver paint flakes from the recoil spring which seems normal from what I read. The only issue I found is a very slight amount of wear on the plastic frame from the recoil spring. The area is right in front of the locking block where the spring sits. I'm assuming this is from the spring compressing and slightly touching the frame. Anyone else notice this in their PPQ 9mm?

is it me or are there a few people having issues with the new guns? I hope walther didn't sacrifice quality in the latest run, as I bought 2 in the last few weeks. It would be very disappointing to say the least.

I'm pretty sure it is you, and the many, many, many new members here who are new to pistols and are looking these things over with magnifying glasses.

I don't see anything in that picture to make me think, "problem".

Pistols are simple tools. Load them, pull the trigger, and if it functions, it functions. Stop looking for things to be wrong with the pistol. Start focusing on yourselves, and your own shooting skills, rather than the likeliness of a possible problem with the pistol.

Metal on metal friction. You're going to have wear. Not saying the OP doesn't necessarily have a problem, but if the gun is functioning without a hitch, just enjoy it. Shoot the heck out of it!

After a closer look it seems to wipe off, it looks like paint dust from the recoil spring. Just in case anyone is wondering.

Can we sticky this post? I was there once and this is the advice I needed... Shoot on, the marks give it personality and also sooner or later you will stop counting them.
