lol yeah wouldnt be my first choice but as for an issued sidearm i dont really think its that bad.Saw your pic and said to myself no one carries an LEM P2000 .40 by choice lol.
Anyone that says they know what we're getting doesn't know. Blue over here.:wave::beer:
microstamping is stamping serialized information into the striker so that any brass left behind would be able to track down the gun used to fire it.What is that? Stamping the parts with the same s/n for tracing?
Stupidity, really.What is that? Stamping the parts with the same s/n for tracing?
usually just the frame, slide and barrel...(Not sure if Glock S/N all pieces or just the frame)
No one using a gun with microstamping will pick up his brass to grind/drill the primers. It would be more likely that they would run a file over the end of the firing pin to eliminate the microstamping if that is where it is put. If it is on the inside of the chamber, you could probably run some fine sandpaper in it to eliminate that. Or just pick up the brass and dispose of it elsewhere. But in reality, criminals aren't usually that savvy anyway.Stupidity, really.
Basically the striker has identifiable marks (s/n, code, whatev), so when it ignites the primer, the primer is stamped with the gun ID.
Which is all well and good, but a few problems.
1. We know about it. Therefore we can work around it- grind it, drill the primers after shooting, swap slides (Not sure if Glock S/N all pieces or just the frame), clean up the brass, etc.
2. Useless if firearm is sold, stolen, or whatever.
Yeah, its got a date code of '94.... the guy i got it off of bought it new...said he only fired it a few times, if that much, then in to his safe it went, and it shows. It's super clean, no wear on the finish. I'm probably just going to do the same with it since i picked up the tac-ops a few weeks ago... but i feel it was a good trade for my vp9.Nice 226... dude at work has one that's been sitting in his safe for like a decade. I need him to sell it to me. LOL
