An AP article I read was an interview of LAPD Board of Police Commissioners on going to a Glock 9mm.They interviewed Chief William Bratton and Commissioner Alan J.Skobin.They stated that because Glock barrels are made with precision machienery,only 10% of the bullets could be traced to the firearm that fired them.Also they stated a glock was more powerful than a Beretta with the same ammo.The officers reccomended the glock 9mm very highly but to me it sounded like the article was trying to point out something anti-gun.As far as I know neither of these two things could be true.I tried to find something on this and failed so I posted this hoping someone knew anything about it.They also stated the riflings arent cut but didnt mention forging which is the only other way I know and forged riflings can be traced.Thank you samuel.

I think i figured it out.
They must be using magical ammo that rotates without rifling.
Or there idiots.

Even at my age I havnt lost my sense of humor.I,m still laughing at smoothbore and magic bullet but who knows,they might be arming police this way.Leave it up to the desk officers.Anything is possible.I wish I knew how to post the whole article.The part about Glock being more powerful than Beretta got me.Also they said you could get 12 9mm,s in and only 10 .40cal. samuel.

The issue is with polygonal rifling used in glocks. Yes it can be traced to a particular gun but it takes much more time and precision work to match it. Most dept's. dont have the technical know how to do it. The same can be said for the HK pistol that use poly rifling as well.

you can tell a glock caseing from any other shell caseing a glock puts a tinny rectangle indention on the shell caseing and to this day i haven't see it on any other shell caseing from any other guns.not to mention the glock caseings are usualy exspanded alittle more but as for as not being able to identifie a gun a dremel tool wil take care of that right before every driveby just run a stainless stell brush hooked to the end of a dremel tool through the barrel and walla no more identifieying marks. and after you get home or better yet just carry a cordless remel tool with you and after the drivby just run the brush throgh the barrel that way just incase you get pulled over and the gun gets picked up they can't get ant balistics off the bullets to match the barrel:burnout: oh it's always better to put a clip with diferent ammo in it for the driveby that way if you do get pulled over the ammo don't match so get like two clicpi with wolf and two clips with cci ammo.lol that way balistics don't match and the ammo in the gun don't match .

Bullets are matched to a particular gun based first on the rifling pattern. That is, right or left hand - number of lands and grooves - and other features. This serves to narrow down the possibilities and yes, poligonal rifiling is a recognizeable pattern. Then the real work begins. Manufacture, wear and cleaning leave imperfections in a barrel that make identifiable markes on a bullet. Like so many other things in forsensic sicense, an attempt to trace a bullet to a particular gun can result in "yes" "no" or "maby". It may well be that polligonal rifling leave less imperfections but any gunsmith could create a minute damaged area in the bore that would in no way harm handgun accuracy and would make bullets fired from the gun easily identifiable. One last comment, any attempt to remove the rifling leaves so many traceable imperfections that a match is certain. You would have to do it after the bullet in question had been fired and then you might just as well get rid of the gun.

i edited this post due to the respect of g&g but i only posted it to prove the forensic test on a gun is not accurate and can be gotton arout if you know ho to do it. us ******* do know how to pop off people and still use the gun and not have to worrie about getting rid of it . we ain't rich down here so we can't afford to keep buying another gun everytime we knock off someone so we devized a way to reuse the gun so it can't be traced back to the body . lmao. we ain't so dumb afta all down heeya.lol

Tommy, do you wanna know how many punksters have probably read your two posts? Alot. You might need to say there are some "techniques" to get out of it. Because if you don't, the criminals can point at you and say you told them how to do it. Then you get in major trouble. Have a nice day.
