SR1911 5" Night Watchman

Mine has been fired 988 rounds (I keep track of number of magazines use at each range trip to arrive a 988 rounds), Factory and 5.0gr WW231, 225-230gr Cast RN and TC. No +p rounds ever.
When purchased, I noticed a very tiny VIS (bow Tie) cut in frame, now the VIS cut is pretty battered and the barrel feet (at normal impact area) is some battered.
Any one else had this experience?? What did Ruger say about it??

Thanks

Good Day,
I have seen some similar problems reported with the Ruger 10mm 1911s that were to the point of cracking the under barrel lug but I don't have any idea what caused the problem. If you can spare the pistol I would surely contact Ruger and see what they have to say. I suspect it's dimensional but have no real clue. Keep us posted.
Best,
Rob

Question

I contacted Ruger and got a email for the representative, emailed him and attached photos for his evaluation.
Later that day he called me and said that he had their top 1911 gunsmith look at the and said its normal??
Could be normal for Ruger 1911's ??
