If it sat flush to the side there would probably be scars/wear marks on the side from movement while traveling...

wow give him a slide that works and he complains about the gap around it

If you look at how the slide and seals are constructed, the slide does not even touch the trim as that lip on the slide compresses the slide seal and there is still about 1/8" clearance to the trim. IMO it would look shoddy if they cut the trim flush with the slide lip but to each his own.
