It really may not make much difference.

There were certain modifications to the USP series along the way, and knowing the date proof can help know where the particular firearm falls along that timepath. If the firearm has original night sights from the factory, it helps to know how old they are.

Aside from those examples, or a preference for certain letters, :690: it doesn't really matter.

If it was a USP, as mentioned above, the date code indicates what battery of upgrades and improvements it has. If it was something like, say, a P7, I can't say that I'd care so long as the internal condition was excellent and the wear on the exterior finish was minimal.

Say you were purchasing a HK93, and wanted it for a 53 conversion. Some of the later date codes have the correct 1/7 twist rate barrel and have 5,56 marked on the side instead of .223, which the markings may not make a difference, but the barrel does.
