    Micro stamping

    Tried searching this before asking. What is micro stamping put into firearms and California wanting really attacking firearms without. Is news to me an identifier on the striking pin to add an extra mark on the projectile for identification.

    Micro stamping would be easily defeated, so it's worthless for identifying criminal misuse of guns. It's just another way to keep guns out of Ca. and eventually the gun manufacturers will get tired of making the old models, or so they hope. Ca. is trying to dry up the supply, but Californians keep buying the older models. so the manufacturers, for the most part, keep making them. A lot of guns are sold in Ca.

    So this is something gun makers are not doing yet? Even more reason to be a member of NRA to help trash like that from becoming law.

    The 90's called and asked for their gun issues back.

    Seriously, did you just wake from a coma?

    New to guns, I take it?

    Microstamping was an idea that kinda sorta worked under specific conditions, but is near impossible to implement at the scale and detail that people think. CA added it to the roster requirements thinking that they could pressure manufacturers into fielding it for real, but it was never going to happen in the real world. Gov Schwarzenegger delayed the requirement for a while until Jerry Brown allowed it to become solidified. Since there is no gun on the market that can actually do this, and there industry isn't interested in pursuing something so easily defeated, the microstamping requirement is the #1 reason that CA is stuck with pistols that are generations out of date and difficult to support.

    CA likes it that way since it means restricting the supply of new firearms to the state. LE doesn't care since their unions got them exempted from the requirements for "safe" handguns anyway.

    No they're not doing it and probably never will.
