Even the Army has different definitions of what a de-milled firearm is.
While at the new US Army Infantry Museum at Fort Benning last week (great museum by the way!) the many weapons on display have a small note at the bottom of the description saying how the weapon on display was de-milled and non operable.
When I asked the museum personnel what was done they told me the firing pins were either removed or cut short.
Obviously the CMP weapons have suffered a harsher degree of being de-milled but just found it interesting that the museum weapons could actually be returned to firing condition with the replacement of a single part.
