I sent my Springfield loaded back to sa it shoot 6" low and 3" to the left off a rest at 25 yds. They installed a RO barrel and bushing plus adjusted sights and tightened slide to frame . Came back with target showing a 5 shot group of 1 and half inch group. After reading the recent post on bowtie cut made me curious about my barrel. It has about 500
rds to my surprise the only shinny spot on the vis was at the top with a corresponding mark just below the chamber. Then i noticed a shinny mark on the right side at the top of the frame that supports the barrel and a matching mark on the barrel. There was a burr which i stoned smooth. I haven't been able to shoot it to see if its still rubbing is this somthing to be concerned about as I've never noticed this befote

"Shiny marks" are normal. The marks as described are correct for a normally operating 1911. The burr probably would have ironed out with use, but stoning it off carefully is fine.
