I found a P-7 that was affordable today...

    I know it's not my usual 'murcan made purchase, but it does fit the "no longer made" criteria I try to pursue for my collection. It came with the box, tools and manual, but is has enough "character" to qualify for some range time, instead of being solely a safe queen. Maybe I'll get the opportunity to "squeeze" off a few next weekend.

    I am sure you will like it once you get used to the manual of arms . Took some adjustment but i now love mine .

    The squeeze cocking does take "different" motor skills than I'm used to, but I'm looking forward to shooting a pistol so famous for that fixed barrel accuracy.

    Is this a PSP or is it a M8?

    PSP. There is neither a heat shield on the frame nor any lever magazine releases.

    I wish someone had one (either model) that I could try out. (hint, hint)

    Correct. I did not click on the pick to get a larger view.

    C'mon down to Tennessee, LH. We'll shoot the P-7PSP, then, when the guns are all clean and put away, we'll spend some time with my faithful friend Jack (Daniels, that is)!

    One you get use to it, I doubt is will stay in the safe for very long. Congratulations on a great find.

    They still have a "1 of 500" example in the case for $1799.99 if you want to hie on down and scoop that baby up!

    LOL which last of series is it ? First there was the jubes , then the 500 , each time hk stated they were " the last of the m8s" They are like that strip mall store that has the going out of business sale every year lol . Seriously good luck selling it but for myself ill pick up another police retiree psp style or two for a lot less and even be happier about the pistol(s) and still be able to afford a few more of the overpriced mags ( i only have 6 spares now ).

    You are about to discover you are a much better marksman than you thought you were..:D

    The HK P7 IS that inherently accurate...

    I'm hip, my Bersa .380 also has a fixed barrel and it really makes me look good at the range. I'm anticipating similar performance from the P-7.

    I think you're correct. HK as a corporate entity, presents a certain arrogance towards the civilian market and your strategy of buying retired police weapons seems sound.

    Very nice gun, and extremely quick when it comes to reloads for competitions and such.

    Sadly, it being an H&K and no longer made - if it breaks.... good luck getting parts or it fixed.

    I picked up a couple of the "German trade-ins" from CDNN.


    I have always wanted one since shooting one at a gunshop I worked at, part-time, around '85. We had some reloads for the range that would not feed in anything, even a Glock, the P7 was the only gun that would shoot these rounds, but the bullets were keyholing at 7 yards.

    Like everyone says very accurate.Patrick

    I tried one today and was pretty amazed at how accurately I could shoot it. i also liked the trigger a lot. I haven't really shot anything like it before.

    As far as breakage, it seems robustly made. My fieldstrip-and-clean after getting it home seemed to indicate, as light as the slide is, the weapon is well made for longevity. I guess I'll find out. I know a coupla creative 'smiths who can figure out a repair should it be necessary, but like any collectable, no-longer made gun, it will see only limited range time and I have a multitude of more "replaceable" carry choices.
    Spinner, nice brace of H-K's.

    The only thing I worry about, is that I have read of a few instances of the drop safety spring breaking, and one guy broke another part, I think it had something to do with the squeeze cocker. It seems parts are difficult to get and very expensive as well.Patrick
