    Best in what respect???
    If I recall correctly, some of the AE's and AF's did not have chrome-lined barrels.
    Thanks @Callahan for the correction.

    Sorry that was a bad way of phrasing the question I guess by best I mean best overall build quality And durability? for some reason I was thinking only the kg’s had a chrome lined barrel?....but I suppose most guys are partial to the date code they own

    Excuse me Tony, but don't most MARK 23s have chrome lined barrels and it was some AEs and AFs that DON'T have chrome lined barrels?
    If "Dirty Harry" had been made in 1996:
    "I know what you're thinking: 'Did he fire twelve shots or only eleven?' Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement, I've kinda lost track myself. But being this is a HK MARK 23, the only offensive handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question: 'Do I feel lucky?' Well, do ya, punk?"

    I believe they are all supreme firearms without a doubt.
    Some have a Maritime finish that are preferred for collectibility (older models).
    While others have a “HE” finish.
    Either way you will not go wrong with either.

    Someone correct me if I am wrong please.

    No problem--- for collectibility:

    KG M"ark"
    KG M"ARK"
    AE/AF tan (1 of 500)
    KH- mid-AE Maririme Finish

    For overall "quality" (finish):

    KG- mid-AE Maritime Finish
    BI Hostile Environment finish (“smoother”) andHKnon-tannish laser etched
