Yes they are.Great prices. I'd rather have the 229 in 9mm.
Those older barrels were blued and show wear like that after a few hundred rounds. You can find some real bargains if you have an LGS that does LE sales.Barrel looks pretty worn. I have 7k rounds down my SIG P226, it doesn't have those lines. Then again, 40s&w is prob harder on the gun than 9mm. Not sure I would buy it sight unseen, but I will def be looking out for the police tradeins at my lgs!
