JLS1911, welcome to the site from Tennessee.
SMH (shaking my head), the "scratch" tell, tell sign of a novice or careless new 1911 owner. I own 16 Kimber 1911's alone not to mention the others, NONE of them have a scratch, it is NOT the norm.
It can be prevented, I use a guitar pick, cheap, easy, some use blue painters tape.
Short of a frame refinish, a DIY repair could make it worse. Accuracy or function will not be affected, just shoot it.
