That end of the recoil spring assembly is threaded on to the center rod, welded and then ground flat. They sometimes grind away most of the weld and you see the original bore/thread. Usually it is just fine, but rarely the head come unthreaded and jams the pistol. I think that can be prevented by using a wicking Loctite product or peening the center out to deform the metal or else replace with an aftermarket spring and rod setup. It may never happen at all, but it doesn't hurt to keep an eye on it to see if you see a full circle around the center rod (meaning it is free to unthread).
