Anyone Purchase Texas Made P7 or P7 Parts from

They have a partially, mostly incomplete, website and are able to provide (some) parts for the H&K P7 line of pistols. Beyond this, they have a configuration page to customize a P7 build, but no mention which P7. Looks like they are in the initial prototype stage. That said, there is some possibility that they can provide parts for old H&K P7 handguns, which would get mine out of the safe. They responded to my EMail saying they have everything, but magazines. The also provide services such as cleaning, refinishing and optics cut. Now a P7M13, or P7M10 with dot optics would be quite a sight. Also, a good way to destroy the resale value. How they can provide guns without magazines, I don’t know. They are in Austin, Texas so might be worth the drive.

Can any of you shed some light on this website. I have to admit that I am partial to the P7 pistols and I would love to get mine out of the safe….:)

Lots more information on their forum.. which I’m just getting to…parts lists..etc

I should add that I realize that 90+% here have never shot a P7 and many never heard of them. There was a major complaint of excess heat generated, but this never bothered me. Also, some didn’t like the grip/cocker. Perhaps it is my hand size, but I loved the grip cocker and the trigger was superb. This gun was very accurate, but very expensive to manufacture, so it is really amazing that anyone has the confidence to bring them back to life. At $2500-$3000, should these be of the same quality as the original, this will be a great buy. I hope that more of you can tryout a P7..great guns.
Interesting, they are offering aluminum and titanium frames in addition to steel.
You can configure a standard P7M8 replica for $2600. Not bad, although OEM magazines will run a couple hundo each.
The long barrel variants are actually a better deal for a few hundred extra, compared to the original HK special editions which command thousands more.
Interesting, but I'm still in sticker shock from when I spent $650 for my former NJSP P7M8. I passed up a P7M13 for $378 from the factory and felt I had gotten ripped off when I got my original P7 PSP for $400...that I was carrying as a duty gun.

Looking at their Comp'd model, it looks like you lose the ability to remove the slide. Very different than the Long Slide P7M13 I got a chance to shoot...that was built for IPSC competition

Not bad, although OEM magazines will run a couple hundo each.
I've still got a bunch in factory wrappers. If the demand increases, maybe I'll be able to afford a Staccato by letting a few go
Just remember that lots of HK products (including the P7) are cloned by other countries- Greeks, Mexicans, iran, and most of all the pakistanis. Not sure if these knockoffs are a source of parts and components for the people the OP is talking about or not.
A P7 cut for optics would be great. My P7 is pretty worn out and doesn't see much trigger time unfortunately. Despite the price I still find P7Pro to offer a tempting product.
What parts are "worn out"?
I'd have to dig into a parts diagram to get some proper names. My gun has gone through a minor rebuild with my gunsmith. I do remember the gas piston had to be changed out, but that was because I was dumb and ran a bunch of lead bullets through the gun. Keep in mind the gun dates to 1979 or so (early production). It's been awhile since I looked into the serial number, but the gun is certainly old. At one time I ran my P7 pretty hard. It may come out again soon as I change my ammo out.
I actually know a guy who is HK armorer certified on the P7, its the parts that drain the wallet from what he has told me. And the cost of buying one in the first place.
If you were to spec out a bone-stock P7M8 clone, its not a great deal compared to an original. However, if you have him build you a long-slide or titanium framed semi-custom, it starts to look like a much better value.
Not to mention the option for optics. It would appear you can also buy separate slides and parts if the website is to be believed.
I'm coming up on my 40 year anniversary with the first gun I ever bought - an HK P7M8, purchased in 1985.


Shot from straight out of the box with NEVER a single problem.


Not one problem.

I have owned my HK P7M8 since 1985 and never had a jam, failure to feed, stove pipe, failure to eject or anything like that, and I've used all sorts of crazy ammo in it.

The magazine release is the easiset I've ever used.

It's completely ambi-dextrous for firing.

I also think the sqeeze-cocking mechanism is the most ingenious thing ever invented for a handgun, BASICALLY giving my P7M8 a smooth single-action trigger pull.

I can't say enough about the HK P7M8, I wish they still made em. I may get that extended slide version from P7 Pro :)
A buddy and I bought a couple when they were cheap; may have gotten mine on my C&R. Didn't seem all that special, then, and even did some foolishness, like running a couple magazines of .380s (which worked perfectly).
Now, they are valuable enough to avoid that kind of silliness. Mine doesn't get shot a whole lot.
It does ensure that you hold it with a firm grip! ;)
ETA--Quick trip to the safe, I do indeed have three factory mags.
The Walther CCP uses a similar system; I wonder how well it works?
It does ensure that you hold it with a firm grip!
Actually it doesn't.

It is much like a compound bow, once you've depressed the lever (grip cocker) pass the tipping point, it only takes light one finger (middle) pressure to hold it cocked. I used to use mine with only the one finger and thumb hold to demonstrate how lightly you could hold an auto pistol and have it continue to function
