    Default P7/PSP magazine date code questions?

    I found in another post that PSP mag code dates are IA=1980 and IF=1085 what does IB= ?
    Are there other codes? What are the uncoded mags date range?

    I don't think it's been shown that those are truly date codes like on the guns.

    I guessed that too but didn't wan't to rely on a ?.

    I just found this. If it applies to all H&Ks(and mags) it is 1981. Although it says it's for USPs.

    From H&K website:
    How can I tell what year my USP was made?
    The date code is located on the Left hand side of the pistol and is represented by two letters. Below is the date coding chart. The letter will correspond with the number.
    •A - 0
    •B - 1
    •C - 2
    •D - 3
    •E - 4
    •F - 5
    •G - 6
    •H - 7
    •I - 8
    •K - 9

    Those do not apply to magazines. If they did, you'd have to tell me what year my io and ij coded mags are?

    J is used by HK on magazines but not on guns.

    Just trying to learn. The codes I posted were listed only for USPs as stated in the post.
    I did notice the mag catch hole is different in my IA mags vs. my IB mags.

    I just joined today and I don't think these are date codes. Hi everyone! I got here by looking up this magazine date code issue. I have been trying to decipher mine. I have a 1982 German State Police trade-in PSP with the flush mag release upgrade that appears to be a very full set with S/N stamped box etc . . . It has iA, iB and I think HJ (it's not in front of me right now). An issued gun with 3 mags stamped differently, including sequential IA and IB indicates mag marking for some duty purpose, to allow mag rotation, range mags, or different ammo. Does anyone have police issued full sets with similar, particularly IA and IB mags included?

    edit: here is a PSP for sale with IA and IB, for example. Coincidence? No, these are not date codes. They help you tell your mags apart:

    In 1976, date codes appeared--- K = 9 for receivers, and J = 9 for parts!!!
    1993-2001 have special coding.

    If you are around and check this post, io = 1997, and ij = 1989!!!
