Absolutely nothing...possibly a different barrel twist, depending on how old it is.

The difference is the date it was made.

Preban was made prior to Sept 13, 1994

Postban was made between Sept 13, 1994 to Sept 13, 2004.

There may be a few physical differences. Maybe in the barrel extension and the barrel twist and buffer tube.

My '09 6940 has the Govt/Leo/Military only stamp. I know it doesn't mean anything really, but I dig it. Kind of like the old US Property marked 1911's.
