Probably the same as when we transitioned from the Model 10 .38 Spl: thrown into a dumpster and hauled to the nearest smelter for secure destruction.
I was involved twice with such destruction:
- 1995: surrendered #D766405 and received #VBS2592, while we were told the old gatts were going to be taken to;
- 2012: as Site Supervisor, I escorted the members from DEPOT when they brought over various weapons and ammunition, and watched the items being dumped into;
the smelter at IPSCO / EVRAZ Regina.
I regret never having photographed my badge, sidearm, and other gear, for any of the 3 combinations (I HAD a silver badge, with my Reg #, that I SHOULD HAVE "lost", as several members had, before having to surrender it for our gold one).

Plus, the RCMP would be very rightly concerned about a deactivated handgun being stolen and used in a crime such as a police impersonation situation.
Sorry but the only way people will get to have them is to buy something made from the steel that they will be melted down to.
