Best carry gun for me ever invented.
Shot from 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 been shooting it since 1985, I've never had a single failure with it.
I also thought it was the best answer ever for the safety debate. I didn't worry about having to remember to take the manual safety off, on the other hand I didn't have to worry about it being cocked on a live round. The trigger is great - I never had to deal with DA/SA or DOA issues. I can't say enough about the HK P7M8, I wish they still made em.
Superb German engineering
Well 3 dot sights and positive ejection of course!
By the looks of the advertisement, or whatever that was in post 2, these are especially noteworthy traits. Guess they help the P7 stand out from all those guns with 4 dot sights and negative ejection?
Last night on the news, I'm pretty sure I saw a Munich cop with a P7. It was too far away to tell for sure, but those things are distinctive to say the least. Not something that gets mistaken for something else very often.
ETA: I just looked it up, and according to Wikipedia they're still used by federal German police and the Bavarian state police. You gotta love the Germans. Don't fix it if it ain't broke.
