Any experts on German symbols.
I picked up my H&K P2000SK today and very pleased. Very similar in size to Glock 26 and almost identical in weight. The trigger is very nice. I will shoot it tomorrow or Wednesday and do a range report.
At the junction of the slide and frame it is about an eighth inch wider than the Glock but everywhere else it looks narrower. The grip is better because it is flat on the back of the grip instead of the rounded back on the Glock. It does come with a replacement peace if anyone likes the rounded back on the Glock, which I don't.
I was pleasantly surprised to find it fits my Glock cross breed and sky ops holsters. So I don't have to spend another bunch of money to get holstered.
I was surprised to see several symbols on the slide and grip that are identical to symbols on my Walther PPK. So their probably not manufacturer but something to do with where their built.
There is an antler with a t or cross at one end.
There is an AI.
In several places there is some complex design that I can only describe as looking like an owl. It sits on top of a capital N.
Just curious, anyone know what these mean?
From the HK 'faq' web page
This works for HK. Don't know if other German companies follow suit.
How can I tell what year my USP was made?
The date code is located on the Left hand side of the pistol and is represented by two letters. Below is the date coding chart. The letter will correspond with the number.
A - 0
B - 1
C - 2
D - 3
E - 4
F - 5
G - 6
H - 7
I - 8
K - 9
