I acquired a used PPQ 45 that I would like to determine it's date of manufacture. Anyone know how I go about doing this? Thanks....

Date code is on the slide...
DE means Germany, CIP over N is the Nitro proof mark, next is the date code A=0, B=1, C=2 D=3 E=4 F=5 after the date code you'll see the ULM stag horn.

So a BE would be made in 2014.BH would be 2016. You also might have a test target inside the box with a date on it. That would be the date the weapon was test fired(I don't remember if they dated the Q45 test targets and am too lazy to check my Q45 box right now :) ) You won't get more than the year on the weapon itself.

Thank you everyone for the help. Now I've got to get off my butt, go upstairs and see what my date code tells me. I appreciate the information.
Stay well all....
