    HK does not have a factory with multiple production lines making several different pistol models at the same time. They will make a run of a certain model, build up some inventory, then convert the line over to make a different model for a while. It's possible that the P30Ls, being one of the slower selling models was last produced in late 2014.
    In any case, as others have said, performance wise it's a non issue.

    Report how your dealer responded when you have the chance. Pics of his reaction would be nice too.

    I would not panic. Just call customer service at HK and they should be able to given you some information on it. I have found them to be polite and helpful. If it is any consolation, I ordered a USP compact 45 in 2014. Had a BD date code and a BC code on the internals of the polymer frame. It has over 1000 rounds so far down the pipe, no problems. With your firearm, it is likely that it was produced and just sat on the shelf until someone ordered one. I doubt you will ever have any problems with it!!!

    New is new, no matter when it was built. Saw a stunning NIB Colt 1911 Govt. that was built in 1924 recently, its still NEW IN BOX. I would have no issue buying it if they didnt want $4500 for it.

    Go shoot your new P30L and enjoy it! :D

    My P30LS 9mm is also BE.

    An exceptional vintage. I think the BE stands for Best Ever!

    My brand new usp9c was bought in the last month but built in 2013, I wouldn't even worry about it. Still throws bullets down range like any other HK regardless of age.

    Unless there has been modifications between years made and versions im not seeing what the problem is? If the gun is the same whether 2 years old or made yesterday. The warranty is the same, etc etc..whats the difference?

    Now if it was a steyr with all the minor changes they've made i might get it, but has there been any hk changes on this model?

    So is used but never fired just as good as new? Or is it trash? My KF usp40 was bought used/never fired in 2000. I'm feeling like I got ripped off now.
