This is wear on my gas deflector on my 9mm Olympic upper after about 350 rounds.
My last 9mm (RRA) did not have this type of damage after 1k's of rounds.

My Oly 9mm upper deflector looks just like that.

It's there to deflect the rounds, it's plastic, and it's cheap and easy to replace. No biggie in my book.

I don't have a Colt or RRA (yet) but maybe they extract farther forward so the brass doesn't actually hit the deflector.

My Oly 45 didn't have any deflector on it.

My Colt 9mm's deflector hasn't been hit like that though.

My Colt upper has well over 25k rounds and it don't look like that.
