I recently purchased my first new Sig P220 .45. After I bought the gun I began having concerns with how the dealer stored all of the handguns for customer viewing. The majority of the handguns were displayed on wooden rack that has brass rods sticking up into the air. The gun was held in place by inserting the rod the end of the barrel. They were all attached by a security cable so anyone can pick the gun up without any assistance from the employees of the gun shop, review the gun and then replace it by placing the gun barrel over the brass rod.
The handgun appears to be in great shape. My question is, how easy would it be for someone reviewing this gun to incorrectly place the barrel over the brass rod and damage the rifling of the barrel? I would be surprised if a gun dealer would display handguns in a manner that would cause damage. It is too late for me to do anything about it now, but I am trying to decide if I need to plan spending the money for a replacement barrel.
