    I have a couple of unique Glock Items, like a .400 CorBon Barrel built by Glock for T & E at the factory. I also have one of the New York G 19 barrels that has conventional rifling. There are some other goodies to I will try to get pics.

    When NYPD first looked at the G19 they had concerns about being able to ID bullets fired by the officeers due to the rifling characteristics of the Polygonal (hammer forged) rifling. NYPD Requested about 500 G19's with "Conventional(land and groove) rifling" when Glock found out about this they made the barrels. The l & g barrels were hammer forged so they had very similar rifling.. NYPD dropped this Idea when they found out Iding Glock bullets was not impossible like they first thought. most of the NY 19 barrels were returned to the factory then destroyed.
