Tiny crack on N-frame blast shield area?

That doesn’t look like a problem to me. That’s not a typical trouble spot so I took some photos for you. 
 

Here is what my 2 N frames look like in that area.

HERE is what my Model 19 looks like in that area. My model 19-4 was made in 78. My N frames were 2012 and 2021.

 

Look familiar?

You have no problem. It’s just now you noticed it. 
 

Truth be told I got a little excited over that same spot on my model 19 when I first got it, but my models 10 & 17 look the same.

The frame lug is to keep the cylinder from falling off when you open it up.  Weird that it's cracked, but it shouldn't be a safety issue.  Unless it falls apart and out of the frame I wouldn't worry.

 

It should be an inexpensive fix as it's a press fit fit of a part that should be under 10 bucks.

Not cracked. Part of the production process.

Thanks.  Looking at it on my phone it's hard to tell.  Parting line from the mould?

I am really not sure. It almost looks like the cylinder stop metal is pushed up from the frame while the metal is still malleable.
