I recently bought a mag for an MP5 from a seller on this board and was pleased with the service and quick delivery. My question regards the date coding on H&K mags. I've got some with IE,IG,IJ, and IS. Does anyone know what codes refer to which years of manufacture? What codes would begin LEO? I have mags that are LEO, some are marked, some are not. Any help would be appreciated.

The date codes on the mags is a secret. Very few people know what they mean, and they won't talk. Tom at HKPRO knows, but he won't say. I can tell you that the mag date codes are NOT the same as weapon date codes. You can try calling HK to find out what you need to watch out for.

All I need to know is if some are LEO or not. I have several that were refinished before I bought them and I know that some early ones had the LEO markings etched instead of imprinted. If they were reblued you would not know which is which. Of course that might not be bad!

If they aren't marked now, then don't worry about it.
