Hello, my threaded barrel for my HK .45C that I bought thru hkparts.net has the same date code and German stamp. However, mine has a Z5 on it. I am guessing it is a batch number?
Not sure about HK45CT this year, since it's now in production, but HK45CT's from 2011, were made for NSW, and didn't come with matching serial numbers.and the 45CT do not come with a matching serial # barrel
You've got it backwards. The US plant molds the frames and puts he German parts in them. The slides are made in Germany. It was a big deal when they sent the molds to Wilcox, I think I read about it in a online version of a NH newspaper.so the A5 or AS is a batch number. I knew the barrel ser# and gun ser# do not match, I was just commenting. So the US plant just makes the slides? I thought it was said tha Germany still makes the frames. Correct?
I had a German CT and it was the same way. Barrels got German serial numbers when they were made, but they didn't match them up. Just an oddity only HK understands.
