It's the same barrel with the Austrian proof marks and same date code it had before. They just polished it up a bit and removed one sharp corner. They also polished the parkerizing on the barrel (pre tenifer) The places they milled are bare metal.
I put a few rounds through it on Saturday. It shoots pretty good, although I prefer a gen3 grip.
