KJW M9 - Metal slide rubbing frame plastic, what do I do?

So I just grabbed my KJW M9 a week ago today. I have played around outside with it and have run about 10 mags through it. Today i started to notice the metal slide is rubbing the cansoft frame. Is this something I should be concerned about or is it nothing to worry about. With my macro lens it looks like there is some small bubbling in the plastic and it is slightly raised at that imperfection point.

let me know what you guys think and if I should try or exchange the gun due to manufactured defect, or if its nothing to worry about and should stop rubbing soon enough.

Thanks!

normal wear and tear.
if you are worried polish the inside of the slide and lube where it contacts the frame.
also... they're MAGS not CLIPS

Anytime metal rubs against a softer surface such as plastic (cheaper clear plastic at that) your going to have wear. Yours seems a little more then normal to me though. The heavy weight of the metal slide will eventually eat the plastic.

I wouldn't worry about it too much. If it bothers you, you should have bought a full metal one in the first place
