    In many countries the 9mm Luger, 9mm Para, 9x19 is considered a "Military round," and civilians are not able to obtain it. The 9x21 was a get around for people to own guns basically chambered in 9mm without using the banned military round. Italy being one of the countries.
    You're not going to see normal 9mm Glocks in gun stores in these countries. You will however see these 9x21 variants.

    Didn't mean to come across as a dick by the lol. Just thought most people knew this. My apologies.

    Thank you sir, and glad to see members posting from the other side of the globe.
    Always interesting to see how things work in other places. I live in California, so I know about work around in regards to guns, lol.

    I really appreciate that and nice of you to share. Ok I have a couple more questions. Could you put a 9x19 barrel (if it was legal) in your glock and would it function properly? Im wonder if only the barrel is different. Does the 9x21 feed well like the 9x19? Do they allow you to have hollow point bullets. Thank you for your time!

    i can't own a 9x19 barrel. 9x21 feedback very well, never had problems with my glocks, beretta's and xd's. i can not buy HP bullets, but only for handgun calibers. rifle HP'S are ok :)

    I used mothers mag polish. Do the whole slide if you just polish the scratched part it will be more shiny than the rest of slide.

    The first scratch on a new gun is always painful, try just wiping it down with CLP, often helps to make the scratches less visible. The black finish on Glocks has never been very durable as it's not designed as rust prevention. It's simple there to make the weapon less observable. Glock was assigned as a duty weapon so little effort went into making it attractive. However, if it still bothers you just get it refinished and don't worry about it. Now I have a 20ga Citori with grade 3-4 wood that has a deep scratch in the stock. Now that is a scratch that can drive you nuts, it's going to get refinished.
