    P7M8 - No date code. Question

    Plum, Milled slide (to remove police or military symbol)
    Warning label under chamber before serial number location
    HK Inc. Sterling VA (below warning)

    SS# 105### M8
    11/92

    BMB 318 symbol


    No stag horns or date code

    Anybody know the age and background of this firearm?
    Clean and fired very little.


    I bought it and am just curious to know its history.

    My S/N is ~20K higher than yours and I have 96/07 on my slide.

    My guess is that yours was made in Nov. 1992.

    You might check the HKPRO forums for more info on your DOB.

    11/92 is the date. Some have an open date, some the alphabet code. The BMB 318 symbol is the proof mark, usually this proof house was used for military and police guns as opposed to the civilian market. The mill mark obliterated the particular agency that used your pistol. It is probably a police trade, BMI, Nds among many that could have used this pistol.

    Enjoy your new HK, the P7 is a great shooter. Good info over on the cult...

    I just realized that PSP and M8 P7s did not share the same serial number sequence. Each model is seperate. For some reason I thought they were numbered together. There were many more M8s manufactured than PSPs evidently. My 1995 PSP has a 80K serial number and production stopped soon after.
