I was looking at GB for a HK45 and i found an ad that says

"This auction is for an HK45 with an "AI" stamp date, it has had a grand total of 65 rounds fired through it. I purchased this gun brand new in November of 2008 from my local gun store (Virginia Arms) and it was part of the first production run of these weapons that was manufactured in Germany (before they moved production to the US). It does not have the computer chip (as illustrated in one of the pics) that the US models have either."

WTF, i searched google and found this.

Meh, RFID. Inventory tracking and such.

Defeatable with a drill press

RFID tags aren't computer chips.

eta: if it's a passive RFID tag, it can't be picked up from very far away; if it's an active RFID tag, the power source will die within a few years at worst.

edit two: RFID tags are just really fancy serial numbers. They wouldn't record the number of rounds fired like someone mentioned in that thread; they would identify a gun for an end user to record the number of rounds he fired, maintenance performed etc.

The "Patriots" must be gearing up. Time to break out the Nano-Machines and give Drebin a call.
