I just got my first revolver, a smith and wesson 360 (scandium alloy frame and stainless cylinder). I took it to the range and beat myself up pretty good with a box of .38 special and a box of .357 mag. I have also done a lot of dry firing with it at home. It has developed some nicks in the finish in the following places: -pretty good amount of wear from where the small ring at the front of the cylinder engages with the frame -small nick in the frame just behind the cylinder stop from the edge of the cylinder -small nick in the frame between the cylinder stop and trigger, also from the rear edge of the cylinder -small nick from where the crane hits the frame -minor wear around the cylinder from the cylinder stop, and tiny nicks on each side of each locking lug (for lack of better term) on the cylinder. I know the ring is to be expected, but the nicks might be from dry firing too much? Are these normal and to be expected? Other than not flicking the cylinder shut, what are good practices in keeping the gun in top condition? These nicks do not bother me, but i want to take the best care of the gun as i can.
