Question

How about having six numbers followed by a single letter, i.e. my "Made In W. Germany" or other such PPK types?

This PPK/S is inscribed 2*****S, on the frame's right side behind the trigger.
I could not find a 'sticky' title other than for those types which are Interarms or paired letters (for the year code) with numbers.

A very tiny combination can barely be identified at the top of the frame, just below the slide. IA seems to represent '80? Or is the sequence stamped behind the trigger the only method to determine the date?

I'm in hospital right now, so it's also the answser to your PM:

The meaning of the postfix S => Special = PPK/S. It stands for the combination of a PPK slide, barrel and a PP frame.

Other postfixes f.e. are A = 9mm kurz, L = lightweight, LR = .22 lr

It's normal, that the postfix only was marked on the frame.

IA = prooved in 1980

Hoping to get a date (approximate OK): I have an Interarms (Alexandria, VA) PPK/S 380 acp. Serial number is 0309XX. Any ideas at all greatly appreciated.
Sincerely,
nowhere

No known list of manufacturing dates are available for the Interarms/Ranger pistol. The best you can do is compare the date on yours to one of the reported pistols in this (and similar) thread in the FAQ section.

Here's another:

Happy hunting.

Date Marking

It is my understanding the letter "J" is the same as the letter "I" in the year code, however, "J" is used on magazines only. I have two H&K P 7 Magazines with the "J" code, as HJ.

There are some exceptions/examples known using 'J' instead of 'I', not only on mags but also on guns. But it's not the common way for date marking! The date code was introduced in the late 70th and the system must worked out at first.
