Hello Fellas,

I was wondering if anyone can help me find the production date for my P7.

The serial number is: 38454

What an incredible pistol, design, and quality of workmanship....it's perfection.
Like they say...they don't make them like that anymore.

I equate the P7's to a vintage Ferrari. I don't think that anyone will make such a well made gun ever again.

Same as with the MP5. I carried one everyday during my stint as a SWAT officer here in New York. The M4 is a piece of junk compared to the MP5. I put god-knows how many thousands of rounds through mine and it never jammed...not even once.

Once during an intense week of training I didn't clean it...every once in a while I squirted some Break Free on the bolt head. At the end of the week it looked like tar, but still the gun worked- full auto, semi as well.

OK off on a tangent pining for the good old days:)

Thanks Fellas!

Couldn't find a date code on the gun and the charts you posted are not any help.

Would HK be able to help me out with serial number?

Might I suggest that you post a photo of the right side of your pistol, so folks can assist you?

How is the SN list no help exactly? Numbers before and after yours are listed as being manufactured in 1982. They were serialized consecutively. If you need more contact HK cs I guess.

Hey Elvis, Tony!
A related question - do P7M8 mags have to have the date codes matching to the pistol's?
Also what's up with the Ie(lower case e) coded mag as opposed to IE? Thank you!

I have three P7s in that S/N range (from 32504 to 54250). They are all date code IB, making them 1981 production. I'm guessing yours has the date code somewhere. See my FAQ here:

Not necessarily--- give or take a year, if the magazines are date coded!!! :biggrin:
Unknown--- I have seen that inconsistent lettering on a sporadic basis--- I have seen "Id", as well. :wink:

I recall reading somewhere that the magazine date codes are a little different than those used on arms but I can't recall in what way. I never paid too much attention to the date codes on mags.

OK I'm in the modern age now...here's a pic!:)

PS: I know that my PSP was a German policeman's gun but that's all I know about it, so whatever you guys can tell me would be great!

The BWB (Bundesamt für Wehrtechnik und Beschaffung or Federal Bureau of Military Technical Procurement) proofed guns for the military and police alike. That is the Batman looking symbol on your gun. It takes the place of the date code, Bundesadler (federal eagle), nitrocellulose "N" and traditional stag horn mark of the Ulm proof house found on P7s. NDS is just an abreviation for the state of Niedersachsen (Lower Saxony) where your police gun was carried.

Your best bet is to date your gun based off of the serial number, as a few have done above.
