Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $23,896)

This study will analyze the repeatability and uniqueness of striations/impressions on spent/fired bullets fired in 10 consecutively manufactured Glock EBIS barrels with the same EBIS pattern by analyzing their striations/impressions. The goal of this project is to determine the error rate for the identification of same gun evidence and examine the reproducibility and uniqueness of striation/impressions imparted to consecutively manufactured gun barrels.
