Scrape marks on benelli bolt normal?

I disassembled the bolt and bolt carrier on my benelli m4 for cleaning and noticed the bolt had scrapes and scratches on it. Will these markings lead to any malfunctions. I may be just paranoid but I don't want the gun to malfunction in a critical situation. How does your bolt look on your benellis. Thanks

You're paranoid.

It's just "wearing in".

Typically, scratches are caused by a foreign element (grit?) between the parts. Scrapes may be the result in inadequately lubricated parts in contact with each other. Perhaps your Benelli is in need of a thorough cleaning and proper lubrication.
