    @Clausewitz @bastardsonofelvis @chuckster62 thoughts? I'm curious about this too. Especially because the font on the serial numbers looks exactly the same.

    That's an odd placement.

    A 2 usually just means that the serial number has been repeated, for example in the case of a second slide.

    @maxim , @brn2xl or @Lamont would probably have a more definitive answer.

    That's the answer that most made sense to me. Just looking at GB auction of this. That leads to the question of why? Factory replacement for defect? Etc etc

    I haven't seen that. Maybe James has.

    I have only ever seen "/1" or "/2" on P9S slides or barrels added to a factory original gun where the owner had a "Sport" or "Sport Target" and the later decided they wanted an upgrade, they take the gun in to their dealer in Germany, he sends it back to the factory and they add the new components, barrels/slides are appropriately marked.

    If it's work/repair in addition, then you get the "J" proof on whatever component was repaired or replaced. More than a few P7 series out there with J proofs, the gas piston
    cylinder gets over spec., the slide gets replaced with a brand new one and all new components that need it and then that gun gets a "J" proof" in addition to it's "N" proof. I disagree with those who look down their nose at such a gun, from a purist collector point maybe but for shooting?? A new or almost brand new slide, or frame, or whatever and factory inspected/ installed vs. "Unknown Round Count". I'll take the ugly duckling please.

    Never seen the "onesie's or twosie's" thing on a P7 series though. And this has no "slash".

    Perhaps a call to Customer Service?

    If I recall correctly, that "2" signifies it was used as a testing and evaluation weapon by HK.

    I know that common wisdom is that it was a replacement, but I'm inclined to agree with @PC7 and @Lamont.
    I believe the notation was made on special order add-ons as well as HK Demo pieces.
    I've seen it on the P9S, P7 series, and USP... as in my USP that was displayed at SHOT.
