Have any of you seen one of these before? Double ramped barrel hood. I believe to reduce drag, or possibly to vent gasses? I've never encountered one before.

My take on it would be it probably has something to do with being a "C" model.

Yeah, provided that isn't a custom job.

What's the story on that pistol, OP? Random internet pic, or yours?

It was posted for sale on another forum's classifieds. It's NIB Factory USA G19C.

Only on the Gen4 compensated models, I think. First saw this on TFB at least a couple of years ago. Wasn't sure what to make of it back then, but I recall seeing it again in later pics of the Gen4 G19C. There's one for sale on GB at this moment with the same ramping on the chamber block:



Found the TFB article:

Cut to reduce drag, I would guess.
That's the spot that gets filthy on my Gen 3 and will cause the slide to hang up. It did that around the 3,000th round at MOAC. A little Hoppe's, a little grease, and a new recoil spring got her running smooth for the rest of the class.
