    I cannot make out the date code on the M8 to indicate if it is factory or not. The seller does indicate that the date code is KC, which is correct. One of the magazines has the correct date code JC and the other, JB, does not. This does appear to have the correct shade of nickel.

    The M13 is a KC date code which is correct. The serial number on the slide looks like someone punched it by hand. The first three digits look off to me.

    Both are in the correct serial number range and configuration (magazine release- nickel; grip screws- black)!!!
