The slide lock is also the takedown pin, and to get leverage some folks rotate the slide lock, which scratches the fram.
When you own a 1911 (notice I didn't say if) the new owner stands a good chance to demonstrate his lack of experience when reassembling after cleaning.

What happens is the slide stop requires a considerable force applied to overcome the resistance of the safety/slide stop plunger. Rather than using a tool to push the plunger back into the tube the rookie simply applies more force. This causes the slide stop to slip off the plunger and rotate around the barrel lug pin scratching a semi-circle "Scarlet Letter" on the receiver and if really overdone, the slide.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

I recently bought a Chas Daley .45 that has the idiot mark on it. I hate to show it to anybody. The guy I bought it from informed me that the slide stop is NOT the slide stop, it's the disassembly pin. I bought it because it came with a Kimber .22 conversion kit. Went to swap them out, started to take out the bushing to disassemble, he said "What the hell are you doing? Why are you doing that?" I told him it's usual to remove the bushing to disassemble, he said "That's not the bushing, this is the bushing!" pointing to the fiber recoil buffer.
I feel like I rescued it.
