Getting some rubbing on barrel of my new EMP




The slide seems to be rubbing on the barrel quite a bit. Is this normal? I do not care of the barrel gets scuffed a bit as long as it is normal but if it is not normal what could be the cause and do I need to send it back to SA? I have not fired it yet I am just noticing rubbing marks on the top of the barrel just from working the slide.
