Default Pignose Glocks, Problem?

I was watching this on you tube(
),and I came across the "PigNose" on Glocks. I have 3 Gen 4's that are3 Months old, and they all have the PigNose. I did not even notice it until I watched the video. I heard that you can bend it back by using boiling water, or a heat gun. Does this PigNose pose a threat on accuracy or function of the gun? I choose Glock because of the "Perfection" and reliability. Is this something that I should worry about for only having the guns only 3 months?

I have pics of my G 21 Gen 4 brand new, never shot. Looks identical to yours. Shoots fine.

I know the front end isn't warping up, or in any other direction, because the Viridian X5L Gen 2 laser I mounted on it is still zeroed. I haven't had to adjust it. If the front end of the frame where the laser mounts warped up that much, the gun would be shooting high, & it isn't.

My G21 looks the worst out of all of em. How many rounds have you put through your G21? I put about 1,000 to 1,500 rounds through mine.

I just bought a another Glock, a G29, and can pick it up Tuesday. I wonder how many shots it will take to Pignose. I never noticed the Pignose until someone on youtube pointed it out.

Both, I took pics with the laser/tac light mounted. The gun hadn't been fired yet, still brand new right out of the case. The pics show a slight closure of the gap between the frame & the slide at the front. So it came that way. I zeroed the laser @ 25', shot a 3 shot group, made a slight adjustment, & locked it down tight. Haven't had to touch it since, it still hits where it was sighted for a year ago. If the rail section was warping the point of impact would shift the laser, that hasn't happened.

It has shot fine since brand new, over 1,800 shots ago.

Here's a blown up pic. Gun brand new, slight upturn at the end of the frame.
