Novice ballistics experts should be prepared to initially work in a supporting role, working alongside a seasoned firearms analyst to gain hands-on training. Training requirements depend on the employer and typically allow novices to gain experience in identifying firearms, handling evidence, searching crime scenes, and providing expert testimony in court.

Prospective firearms experts should have strong written and oral communication skills, as they will be expected to write detailed reports and to testify in court. They should have strong knowledge of different firearms, ammunition, and possess the ability to handle them. Individuals with law enforcement or criminal justice experience may find this experience beneficial in securing employment as a forensic ballistics expert.

Firearms Identification, Ammunition & Forensic Ballistics

Striated action marks are common to cartridge cases that have passed through the action of an auto loading or repeating firearm. Striated action marks include chamber marks; shear marks, firing pin drag marks, extractor marks, and ejector marks. Chamber Marks One of the most common striated action marks are called chamber marks. Roughness in the chamber of a firearm can scratch the outer walls of a cartridge case when loaded and removed from the chamber. Most chamber marks occur after the cartridge is fired. Cartridge cases expand when fired pressing out against the walls of the chamber.

When they are pulled out of the chamber, the sides of the cartridge case can be scratched. The comparison image below shows chamber marks on.

Chamber Marks GLOCK pistols have a rectangular firing pin hole below in their breech face. In a similar process, striated marks called firing pin drag marks can be produced. When the firing pin springs forward to strike the primer of a cartridge, it may remain slightly forward and imbedded in the primer.

The cartridge case drops with the barrel causing the nose of the protruding firing pin to drag across the primer as it leaves the firing pin impression.

Book Description

Firing Pin Drag Marks Another action mark, usually found in a striated form, are those created by the extractor of most auto-loading or repeating firearms. The extractor is a small part sometimes resembling a hook that is used to remove a cartridge or cartridge case from the chamber of a firearm. Extractor Marks Ejector Marks As described above, the extractor pulls the cartridge case out of the firearm's chamber. As the cartridge case is pulled to the rear it will be struck somewhere on an opposing edge by a part as seen below called the ejector.

Cartridge Case ejection Impressed marks are created on cartridge cases when it impacts the tool again, the firearm with adequate velocity or pressure to leave an impressed or indented mark. Impressed action marks, with a few exceptions, are produced when a cartridge case is fired in a firearm. Ejector marks can be striated in nature but a lot of the time they are impressed action marks.

Firing Pin Impressions Firing pin impressions are indentations created when the firing pin of a firearm strikes the primer of center fire cartridge case or the rim of a rim fire cartridge case. If the nose of the firing pin has manufacturing imperfections or damage, these potentially unique characteristics can be impressed into the metal of the primer or rim of the cartridge case.
