    To be clear, this appeared to be a brand new gun. Looked like it had never been touched.

    Dbealmear,

    So which is it? Frame has the different serial number OR the slide has the different serial number.

    It does make a difference to what happened.

    Dbealmear,

    That's actually scary, mainly because I believe that some one along the way did a disassembly of two pistols, side by side and then accidentally reassembled them with the wrong slide on each. Or was it done intentionally? IDK. But scary.

    Plus, I'm assuming (I know, I know) that this occurred AFTER the pistol left the factory.

    That is strange.
    The German units are required to have matching slide/frame/barrel SN’s. IIRC even the SN is stamped onto the case (or am I thinking the label). In the US the frame SN is the gun, so that gets on the 4473.
    The only time the package is molested is in the US when they configure the LE/Tritium.

    It only takes one person slapping an incorrect slide & frame together and an entire assembly line run is mismatched. But I feel like there is more to the story here. I think something took place at this particular shop OP. Not to say a company such as HK can't make mistakes but this is definitely strange. Keep us posted.

    I am happy to say they have said they will give me my money back as soon as they get the gun. So, I suspect the story is over for me assuming I get my refund. Like you, I would tend to point to the retailer rather than HK. However, they seemed genuinely surprised and confused. I doubt we’ll hear much more.

    My understanding is (as far as pistols) HK-DE doesn’t have an assy line per se.
    A worker assembles his batch from birth to full assy, making it unlikely he would mismatch 2+ on his cart. QC, he would then be responsible for his series of SN’s.
