Congrats on a fine 1911!

The wear on the barrel is normal. I am not exactly sure what S&W coats them with but it’s not very durable. Mine looked about the same after the first range trip.

Few years back I was trying to pick between a DW Guardian and SW PC 1911, went with SW because I had no personal experience with DW and my basic 5” ESeries was a decent gun.
