Default Sig P229 Elite rail wear


I've recently decided to purchase a used Sig p229 Elite and I have a question. On the forward left side of the left frame rail, there is visible wear. Shiny metal can be scene. I am worried about this as I am learning more about Sigs, and how frame wear is important to inspect when purchasing them used.

Wear is normal on the rails anytime you have steel rubbing on aluminum. Keep the rails well lubed.
