So I was looking at a HK45 and noticed this little piece under the backstrap. Anyone know what the little round part is next to the hammer spring?

Exactly.

It's there for inventory tracking at the HK factory, no chances of someone accidentally transposing two numbers and screwing up the serial number inventory, makes it harder to accidentally take a frame out inside a lunchbox, etc.

Range is on the order of a meter or so unless someone has very sensitive equipment and all they'll get then is what was encoded on the chip at the factory, a serial number, firearm nomenclature and maybe a 'born on' date.
