Just got my S9 from CDNN, but there's some indication of wear. I am wondering if that's with all the "new" S9 from CDNN, or just mine? I understand they're old stock but for pistols sold as new condition, they exhibit wears that shouldn't be there. First of all, the slide catch area on the slide is showing alot of white, I am guessing it would take some wear to remove the Tennifer finish. There's Sig-like smilies on barrel exterior, but that's pretty minor. The interior of barrel however is filthy. I was able to scrub it clean, but if that's result of factory test firing, that's the most powder burn I've ever see. What bothers me however is the area leading up to throat of the barrel. I'm not sure if it's how Steyr made their barrels, but most other mfg have rifling starting very crispily, but this one's barrel rifling starts off very shallow, and then becomes more pronounced aand normal looking after 1/8" beyond the throat. If this was a Sig barrel, this is what the barrel would look like after at least few hundred rounds. There's also some wear on frame rails, minor wear on breech face, underside of slide, all of which I cleaned up. Also one oddity is the surface of disassembly latch, there's some thing on it, I can't tell if it's rust, but I haven't tried steel wool to get it off. Another issue is the foam insert in the box is broken at top edge, and it's all crooked inside. All of the stuff is pretty cosmetic to be honest, but I dont' buy new guns much and when I do, I'd like to be able to feel it's new instead of "used" even if like new. CDNN has excellent prices, but when it's sold as a new gun, it should be new irregardless of the price. The bottomline is that I don't mind an extensively factory testfired gun, but what I'm worried about is that this could be a returned item CDNN received after the previous owner found something wrong with it reliability wise. Personally I'd feel guilty to return it if I fire it myself, and it's hard to ascertain reliability problems with just a mag or two. What do you think? Should I arrange for my FFL to do exchange with CDNN?
