Second bad part is that the underside of the slide already came with the finish worn off the bottom of the slide rails as well as a well worn track down the center channel of the slide where the disconnector slides. The underside of the slide is worn like you'd see on a gun having shot 1000 rounds. Not something you'd see on a brand new gun.
What are the good things to say about it?

100 rounds without any kind of hiccup.
Best parkerize job I've ever seen.
Shoots incredibly smooth.
First Armscor gun I've seen that doesn't need extractor tuning.

Watch the slide stop in the barrel bottom lug area.

The back of the slide is a little funky but it's the wear I'd be most concerned with. THat park in the slide channels gets gone kind of quick but it sounds like it's a bit more than usual. Did the chamber that is exposed when in battery have much wear?

You mean the barrel hood? The outside of the barrel had no wear at all. Even around the end of the barrel where the slide moves along the top. It just really makes me think it's a used slide.
