Default When was my M&P 9MM made...s/n is HPL0119?

Just bought a used MP9 with no sku on the case. Can someone help me identify when was my M&P 9MM made...s/n is HPL0119? Thanks

Thinking about swapping out the trigger to an Apex. But, want to make sure of production date to make sure the Trigger kit will work.

Welcome to the Forum

99.8% of the time the end label on the box has the date of manufacture printed on it.

The old style would be a 4 digit number under the "SPEC ORD" heading the newer ones just have a 6 digit number printed on the label.

Welcome to the forum. I don't have a 4th edition of the catalog so no help there.

I have a Shield 9mm I purchased in 2015. Its S/N is HKLxxxx. The problem with the three letter prefix is they are not always sequential.

Serial number help needed on recent guns! Triple alpha prefixes:

If you go to that link there is discussion regarding the three letter prefixes. It may help.

Just go onto the Smith & Wesson website. Under customer service, they have a live chat, it only takes a few minutes for them to come on live and look it up.. i just checked on the used M&P 22 compact I bought a couple of weeks ago.
