Red face Question About My Model 659 Frame

Hi guys and gals,

I picked up this S&W 659 yesterday at local shop. I just disassembled it and noticed weird markings/wear patterns on the frame.

Here are two pictures. Is it safe to shoot?

It's area in the upper left u-notch at the end of slide rail

Look like normal machine/milling marks.

Thanks for your quick reply. I feel silly for asking this question, but just want to err on the side of caution

Looks like less than stellar machining, stainless can be difficult to machine. Odds are that's all it is, but look in the inside surface to make sure there are no cracks extending into the barrel cam block.

This. I just pulled the slide off my 659 and it has light machining marks in that spot as well.
