Anyone else seeing the barrel hood wear on this spot? Have 750 rounds through it and it runs fine with zero issues or malfunctions of any kind. The bare metal is not peened.

I use the Slip2000 EWL 30. Once the barrel is cleaned, i apply a light coating, let it sit for a few minutes, and then wipe it dry. After over 500 rounds the barrel still looks like new.

Remember, these are mass produced pistols. Some will wear a lot, some less, and some will have almost no wear if greased properly.

Just the nature of the beast. I’ve had all the above with sigs, glocks, etc.

As long as it’s not gouging I wouldn’t be concerned.

Personally, I like it when the barrel looks well used.

You could always put the factory barrel in a storage box and find an aftermarket SS barrel.

It's a common occurrence.
The 365 is not a hand made handgun with perfect tolerances.
I have a small wear spot on the top of my barrel hood.
My P365 has over 4,000 rounds through it.
Nothing to be concerned about.

I have some nice wear on my 365 and 365 XL. I’m coming up on 2K on both and zero malfunctions on both. Both are about 3 years old. I’ve always kept the contact points well lubed.

Mine shows similar wear, but it hasn't increased over time and shoots like a dream. Nothing to worry about.
