      I've seen that hickey on just about every nickel slide on 383 models....I suspect the nickel plating is effected by the slide latch impacting against the slot at that point.

        Welcome Grayman. Pollyb's guess is probably as good as anything. Another guess would be maybe using a cleaner with amonnia in it? Is it just a stain, or is it the beginning of a bubble ready to flake?

              It's was on the gun when I bought It.
              It actually looks more like a missed spot when they did the satin finish, I've noticed It on a number of older nickel 383a's
              but not the blued ones.

                I got married and proceeded to start working 3rd shift for the next 20yrs.
                I did that and got unmarried a few times. For some silly reason wanted me home at night.

                  Lol! My Dad rode horses a lot when he was young and single..... then he got married. When mom died after 53 years of marriage he took up riding again in his 90's and rode for several more years. He was quite an example for all the younger students!

                  I used to ride motorcycles before I got married ..... then after 18 years my wife talked me into getting another motorcycle! She doubled my life insurance at about the same time and bought a Bersa BT380. She mostly practices head shots at the range. Should I be worried??

                    Well, there are slower ways to die.

                        My wife tends to shoot low, frequently hitting in the groin area. Luckily it's only ever been paper targets, but I don't recommend getting on her bad side.
