Pictures added.

Question, are the wear signs normal for a new (unfired) gun?

Thanks.

It HAS been fired (You may have received a spent casing in an envelope with the gun), and while I didn't take pics, I had the same question when I bought my XD 9. After several thousands of rounds, there are some shiny spots on the barrel, but nothing that would qualify as wear.
Enjoy your Croatian Sensation!

That thing is just downright purdy, isn't it? I'm waiting on paperwork and hoops to get mine now (yay CA).

It sure is and it is worth the hassle you are going through to own one.

Congratulations, vato! I'm sure you won't be disappointed. I had those same marks on my XD when I first bought it. They're probably from people asking to look at it in the store and playing with it a little (that's what she said).

Between this comment and your Avatar, I think I am starting to know you. LOL

Nice gun. Shoot it until your arm falls off and then shoot it again. I also had those markings on the barrel of my XD when bought new. You won't be dissapointed with the .40 at all where I live there's only about a $3 price difference between it and 9mm. Unless you need the money badly, I'd hang on to the ammo.
