OK, so I went to the local gun shop to check out the Steyrs M-A1 they had on sale. When I got one in my hand I realized that there was what looked liked a metal shaving in the slide. I tride to scratch it off with my finger nail. Before I knew if, I was scratching the finish off the slide to reveal silver underneath. I barley used any force at all. I am affraid to buy on now becasue I am affraid of what the finish will look like after a few holsterings. Can anyone shed any light on this? Why did this happen?
