I got this pistol used from a dealer and it looked like new but was used and sold as a used pistol. My question is does the slide look normal or is it cracked and routed? Should this concerne me? Thanks.

All the stainless 220's I have seen look like that....
My personal one does also...

I had a compact witness .45 that looked identical to what you show on yours, I took it into my local gunsmith and was told is was normal.

Thanks for all the replies. I am glad it is a normal thing because I really like the pistol and it has a lot of potential. When I shoot it more I think I will get better with it but so far I just have not shot it that great. Also I just tested to see if it was a crack or a scratch and it showed it was a scratch I turned my dremel way down and used a rubber abrasive tip to polish it up and the line went away completely. So it looks like I was just a but paranoid. I was more worried about its value than it coming apart or blowing up.

It is by design and meant to be that way. No worries, go shoot it. Check out SIGforum for more info.

All 220ST's are like that. They are made that way.

Mine has the same mill. One thing mine does not have though is all the tooling marks inside of the slide...mine is smooth
