I recently got a Sig Sauer P365 at my local gun shop. Included in the purchase was a gray SIG case, magazine redemption form for the second magazine due to coronavirus, owners manual, and gun lock. My question is with the “Sig Sauer” and 9mmx19 on the barrel. On most of the barrels I’ve seen, those letters are nice; crisp, and precise. However, on mine the letters looks like they were hand engraved, and extremely sloppy. I’ve had others tell me that it’s a fake barrel or knockoff barrel. I just don’t see how it could be. There is no way the gun had been used before I bought it. Is this normal or what?

Jcrisp is probably right. Appears that anytime there is horizontal movement in the cut the barrel shifted down making the cut travel up. That would appear as an insecure barrel in the machine. I would have no doubt it is a factory barrel since you bought it new, just a sloppy job in the cut.

I was thinking the same thing or a chipped or broken engraving tool which if it was a broken tool it would be rougher in more spots. I looks like a misload or a loose load on the engraver.

Yes, manufacturing defect.
Maybe a slipping milling fixture not holding the barrel tight enough during the ball end mill work on the lettering.

Sig is trying to keep up with demand, but that barrel "Escaped" quality control and made it out the door.

In less than an hour I will be sitting in a CEO's office. Under no circumstances will he sacrifice quality for ANY reason. He will be late on delivery, fix mistakes on his nickel and make the very few quality problems he has right very quickly.

I think he and the CEO of Sig have different expectations.

Sounds like what I've heard numerous times about Mr. Imperato at Henry Repeating Arms.

From what I've heard on this forum, SIG CS is pretty good too.
