Guess I should have been less of a lazy a$$ and searched it..In a lengthy nutshell:
Anyone got a picture of the connector that can be seen in the frame with the S or H marking. I would only want the S standard. I just bought a PPQ and want a PPS for CCW. Tried a search but didn't come up with anything. Thank you for this great thread.You should be getting 6 and 7 rounders and yes look for a BB code...not because there is anything wrong with other years but if you are buying new it can't hurt to make sure you are getting a new gun. Make sure to check for the S (standard) on the connector instead of the H (heavy).
As far as guide rods and springs....I say don't fix what isn't broken but some people sware by them...I would not worry about that though.
Yes, I very interested to find this out also. Thanks.Anyone got a picture of the connector that can be seen in the frame with the S or H marking. I would only want the S standard.

What are the exact numbers in your test fire date. They go by day month year and the day and month are getting inaccurate data on here.Mine has a BA code and was test fired 6/2010 and has the tab. If you are purchasing the gun at a store just check it. If online get the BB for sure.
Oh, and make sure it has the S disconnector if you do not live in Mass.
To the left of the serial # AF2368 are 4 letters. The first two are DE which is the country of origin=Germany then a proofmark(Germany)and then two more letters. Those two letters are the year your pistol was made.I've read through this entire thread twice and can't figure out what date my PPS was manufactured in. Either I'm just retarded or I missed something completely so could someone tell me AF2368 what year?
