Wear on AR15

Got this a few months ago and have been shooting it a lot.

Noticed some wear at the rear edge of the ejection port and on the ramp.

I'm a newbie to these guns so I have no clue if this is normal.

Thoughts?

That's the brass deflector. It's there so if you fire lefty like on the old ones, you don't get whacked in the face with spent brass. If you've been firing "a lot", it's just wear from spent casings.

Have you been shooting steel-cased ammo? Brass hasn't done that to either of my rifles but I have noticed the one I use steel-cased ammo with is starting to show signs of wear. I don't know if you're from TX or if your sn just says Texas but Academy has some very cheap steal-cased rounds that I love to shoot.

Well you didn't buy that at walmart on the sale isle. You are located in texas and I'd say have customer support.

Only shoot brass-cased ammo as per manufacturer recommendations.

Apparently this is normal, the video above helped a lot. Thanks for that.

Normal. Shoot more!

But, where does your brass end up?

In the 3 - 4:30 slot so I guess I'm doing ok.

Normal...

If you're getting a nice 3-4:30 ejection you're gtg on your gas system too.

Be interesting to see if your case mouths are flat on one side where they hit the defector. Some of my 300BLK supersonic loads were a little hot (or over gassed depending on your perspective I guess) when I was dialing my loads/rifle in a couple years ago... Beat the shit out of the case mouth. Took a bit more time resizing those when reloading!

It was punching them out at 1 O'clock about 8-9 feet away too!

Edit:

Thanks for all of the input, folks. I did hear back from the owner of the company and he told me to keep wearing the gun out. All is normal.

I have an expensive shotgun that's not quite a year old. It looks like hell and runs like a dream. As long as it's sending shot downrange it's working properly. Shoot that thing like someone else is paying for the ammo.

Is it actually wearing the anodizing off or is that brass on the finish?

I know some people anal guys on ARF who were adding velcro, the fuzzy side to the deflector.
