I know there is a date code on P7 M13s.
My serial no is 17- 81***.

Is the 17 the date code?

I know I have seen this topic touched before but I can't find it.

Thankyou,

Tom

No. There are 2 letters.

My guess yours is II, IK or KA

It's a two-letter code on the slide (not DE -- that stands for Deutschland) with A=0 through K=9 (skip J). So, for example, if your slide is marked "KC" it would be from 1992. Got it?

17 is the model code. Part of the serial number on HK pistols.

The proof date is a pair of letters next to the proof mark. This is only for commercial sales. Government procured pistols don't usually have this unless later sold for commercial purposes. Don't confuse the proof date with a "birthdate." Pistols are, of course, proofed after they're made but it can be months later. In the case of some P7 pistols it can be years later. The M13 proof date, though, will be very close as these didn't sit around waiting to be sold.
