Hows it going guys I just picked up my second HK (NEW USP45), when I got home I took the gun apart to clean it and I saw these wear marks are these marks normal for a NEW Hk 45, I know that HK test fires one round at factory but this looks like more wear take note that i racked the slide about a dozen times or so.Thank you guys for all your help.

Didn't inspect mine except to clean the packing snot off and head to the range... you'll enjoy it. Good luck!
.

The weird thing is that there is hardly any oil on the gun all my other handguns, rifles had a thick oil or grease from factory.

Well, as a point of reference... When I bought my USPf 40-brand new from the factory (or, in this case, storage)-it had loads of packing grease on it. The gun was over a year old but still brand new. I just recently nabbed a p30 v3, and it wasn't even two months old from assembly being completed until it was in my hands - no goo on it at all. Just lightly oiled.

Doesn't really matter. Were you planning on never shooting it? Those friction parts would look that way after a few hundred rounds, regardless. Unless you're implying you paid out the tushie for it because it was supposed to be NIB...

my supposedly new USP 45 that I bought from my LGS had some slight wear as well when I cleaned off the oil that was on it. yours looks a little more worn than mine did though. and also, it didnt come with a HK logo gun lock...instead just a generic gray one.

It does matter when you pay FULL price for something that they say is brand new. if it was used, that's fine, but I expect to pay "used" prices for it.

I've never seen a new HK that didn't look like that.

These guns are not like a brand-new Frisbee that is formed on an automated machine, and then packaged for sale all in one continuous motion. They are all "used" before they ever get to be sold as "new". . . by the factory.

I don't pay full price for any pistol, brand new or used. Helps me sleep at night ;)
