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?
"if you pay peanuts you get monkeys." My Dad.
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?
Hidden Content "It will be my duty to defend the world's P7s from the chrome crusades. A dark (albeit shiny) time in P7 history."
J is used by HK on magazines but not on guns.
Everyone knows you should never go full retail !
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.
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.
