Like the title says, I'm looking for an earlier Heckler & Koch Mark 23. Please PM me if you have an example you'd like to sell. Doesn't need to be pristine; shooter grade is okay

I'm curious.... what is the significance of the 2006 production year/date?

I believe 2004 is when HK stopped supplying the guns to the military. After that time HK made some minor changes to the gun regarding the finish and the like, as they no longer had to build the gun to contract specs. 

I thought it was 2006 the changes happened, but your message caused me to reflect on it - now I think it was 04'.

2004 (AE date code) was the transition year from Maritime Finish (glossy) to Hostile Environment Finish (matte).
