    I have three P7s in that S/N range (from 32504 to 54250). They are all date code IB, making them 1981 production. I'm guessing yours has the date code somewhere. See my FAQ here:

    Not necessarily--- give or take a year, if the magazines are date coded!!!
    Unknown--- I have seen that inconsistent lettering on a sporadic basis--- I have seen "Id", as well.

    I recall reading somewhere that the magazine date codes are a little different than those used on arms but I can't recall in what way. I never paid too much attention to the date codes on mags.
    Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side, kid.

    The BWB (Bundesamt für Wehrtechnik und Beschaffung or Federal Bureau of Military Technical Procurement) proofed guns for the military and police alike. That is the Batman looking symbol on your gun. It takes the place of the date code, Bundesadler (federal eagle), nitrocellulose "N" and traditional stag horn mark of the Ulm proof house found on P7s. NDS is just an abreviation for the state of Niedersachsen (Lower Saxony) where your police gun was carried.

    Your best bet is to date your gun based off of the serial number, as a few have done above.
    Life is an endless series of trainwrecks with only brief commercial-like breaks of happiness.
