    Are all SR9s marked made in WEST Germany?

    Anyone have the link to a fantastic thread from a few years ago that addressed the serial number ranges for these guns? Been searching and cannot find it.

    Thanks SudS, All of the SR9's I have seen either in hand or in photo have had the "46" prefix, but I saw a post referencing "43" prefix.
    Also, the post about the 'first 1000" or so being shpped with woodgrained stock set. My SR9, Ser #46-00000x, which I purchased new in
    1990, was shipped with black stock sets (both).
    Thanks agian for clearing the confusion.

    A one digit serial number gun with a black stock set? That would be odd. HK promoted that gun for months and months as having the wood grain stock. Tons of literature only showing the wood grain stock, but anything is possible. The black thumbhole stocks didn't come in until the second wave of SR9s. When the woodgrain stocks came in (my woodgrain SR9 was mid 800 serial #), I ordered another SR9 for a friend, but none were available, it was on back order. When the SR9 finally came in, it had the black stock. After that, HK raised the price and the SR9s showed up with two stock sets (thumbhole and 91). The 43 prefix is for the HK94 (9mm). I would bet a bunch against any SR9 shipping with a 43 prefix.

    In my experience, this is myth. You cannot tell whether a T or TC is authentic based upon the serial number range. They were all manufactured and shipped to the US as SR-9 rifles and only upgraded and stamped in the US as ordered. It very well may be there are some groups of serial ranges, resulting from some groups of multiple T and TC rifles being ordered at the same time, but I have not seen a thorough enough compilation of serial numbers to narrow it down enough for any reliability. For example, even with serial numbers that are really close, say a 2501 serial and a 2503 serial, there's no way of knowing whether an order of one SR-9 T model was fulfilled, followed by an SR-9 of 2502, and then later another SR-9 T of 2503, or whether they were all ordered or assembled as a batch of SR-9 T rifles of 2501-2503. Further, I've seen no evidence that HK strictly sold the serial numbers in sequence. And last of all, serial ranges depend upon people being honest and properly identifying and reporting their own rifles, however once somebody buys what is supposed to be an upgraded SR-9 they want it to be authentic whether it's likely or not.

    The bottom line is that serial ranges are the weakest bit of information to judge authenticity on. That said, it wouldn't hurt to have the information with the understanding that the ranges could be completely unreliable or misreported. I'll see what I can dig up.
