NIB FNX 45 Tactical Feedramp Tool Marks and Mag Drop Issues - Input Appreciated

Anybody get these feed ramp marks on a NIB FNX 45 Tactical?
Also, When I press the mag release in, mag drops about 5mm, then when I let off on the release, mag drops free. This normal?
Pics of your feedramps would be appreciated.
Thanks Tom

my tac does the same thing. Too much trouble to send it back for that issue. I assume it has to do with the mag catch which is a known issue. I figure over time rubbing of the mag to the frame will solve the issue

Ramp looks okay to me (pretty much the same as mine, can't feel any of the marks).

The mag release: mine started off this way, but the more I use it, the better it is getting (pretty much has stopped).

My first FNX 45 (stainless) had the same mag issue but after constant mag release and insertions, it functions almost perfect. My newer black FNX 45 has a smidge of mag hangup but I certain that with constant mag drops and insertions, it will be the same result.

I took out the mag release (pretty easy to do) and just worked it for a while. I am assuming any excess polymer was rubbed off because now the release is smoother than a baby's but and mags drop free perfectly. I wouldn't sweat the feed ramp. Mine isn't crystal clear but the thing cycles ammo 100%... Not a single malfunction in about 400 rounds. Enjoy!
