    It is a marking showing the rifling of the barrel.

    Excellent point. I guess it is hexagonal.... i haven't really looked that close at the engraving. It is a pentagon..... that is just what i was told, i may have been wrong.

    I'm nearly positive it just shows that polygonal rifling is used.

    Proof marks are different. They note that the gun has been test fired successfully with higher power loads. The US made Glocks don't have these proof marks, but the Austrian models have distinct marks.

    I just checked two of mine, 30SF and 21SF. Both have the pentagon mark, but there is also a dot in the center of it.

    It signifies polygonal rifling. Depending on caliber, some GLOCK barrels have hexagonal (6 sided) rifling, some have octagonal (8 sided) rifling. The stamp is a pentagon.

    All three are polygons, the general name of any closed shape made up of straight segments (triangle, square, pentagon, hexagon, heptagon, octogon, nonagon...).
