    Default Is this HK grip authentic?

    Is this HK grip OEM German HK? I thought the German ones were date coded and the US ones were either blank or said "USA"... the texture of this is also throwing me off. Thanks all!

    Also, I thought all German ones had an actual date code in the box like these examples:

    Have not seen one with "circles"--- could be the newest manufacturing!!!
    Also, the texture of the material did change at some point.

    I’ve owned both HK German and US grips and the flange that inserts into the trough/recess on the receiver is longer on the HK German grips as opposed to the US Made, that I’ve owned. The HK German fitment is always tighter than US. YMMV

    From what I have seen, it seems that date-coding of furniture parts ended @ 2000 ("OR" or "or")!!!
    Someone may have information on a higher date code.
