Play nice kids.

If the owner/shooter likes it, that is all that really matters. I've never even seen a P7 except in pictures.
Contrary to popular belief, you CAN fix stupid - it's just illegal.

Local shop has like four at any given time. I really wasn't a fan but then again, once upon a time I didn't like ARs either and look at me now :)

Tranquilo :laugh: Unlike the HK forum, this forum we are allowed to tell people what we really feel. Not everyone has to like your stuff. If you post pics just to get that, then don't post em here. Sorry.

All that matters is that you like it, and I know a few on that forum didn't like it. I checked. But again, all that matters is you do.

Now the bottom pic, I love that.

The P7 is a great pistol. I have a P7M13 on the way in January I am told. As long as the deal doesn't fall through. A buddy of mine has one, and wants to sell, going through some financial issues. His wife left him when he deployed, tough thing. Anyway, I told him I would pay him exactly what he wanted to pay me back when he got back on his feet. No interest, just that I get to treat the gun as my own until then.

the bottom pic that in his last post is a great representation of one. Nice weapons. The squeeze cock is a bit weird at first, but I found that after a few mags of shooting it became pretty natural.

Very accurate, and I do like the profile of the weapon too. For some reason, even though I have smaller hands, I like the M13 feel in my hand a bit better. The M10 version feels well to, but has substantial recoil as it is in 40 cal.

I've shot the P7.

I like it.

A lot. The gun shoots exactly like my 9mm, of which only one other pistol I've fired, also does. This is due to the design, and is very apparent when you fire the gun.

I think it might make a great pocket pistol; you really can't accidentally fire the gun without squeezing it, first. This would be really difficult to accomplish without direct intent, and it would be fine being pocket-carried. The trigger is also fantastic.

The squeeze cock is, of course, the best part about the gun! :D

Have you ever held one before? They're very rare so most people, even P7 people, have never held one. The M13 has a grip like a 2x4. It loses all the wonderful ergonomic feel of the single stack P7 and P7M8.

BTW, the pix in my last post are after and before. Same gun.

I had a P7 M8 and the PSP. The PSP outshot the M8 head to head, so i sold the M8, even though they are worth 2x as much. After owning both and holding them side by side, I really don't like the look of the M series guns. The truly huge trigger guard makes the guns look very ungainly IMO.

I disagree. I have shot plenty of P7s. I had a small collection of them. And your chums on the HKPRO site wouldn't agree. Since you cited them.

The P7M13 has the best ergos of the lot IMO, my favorite. Slightly longer and higher than a M8. I really felt no difference in the PSP and the M8. They are slightly different. The P7M10 feels nice, but shoots pretty bad IMO. Also the ugliest of the bunch. The K3 shot very very well also, but I never had any time for the 380.

M8s aren't worth twice as much, maybe 300 more, maybe. That is mostly because PSPs are refurbished LEO guns. I actually owned a PSP that had exactly 16 rounds through it. It was a buddy of mine's on Pensacola PD's gun. It was his second of two, and he only shot it once.

That PSP was worth as much as the anniversery M8, and I never shot it because I already had a PSP. I know, because I sold it to the same collector that will be giving me the M13.

Frankly, a M13 is the only one of the lot I would own at this time.

Ugh, all this activity over the P7's makes me want one. It's one of the very few guns that I don't feel like I need to have, but would really like to own. It's just outside the practicality bracket, though, which makes it easier for me to discard; it's too heavy to carry, for me. However, most guns are too heavy to carry, for me. When I run or do outdoor sports, it would just fly out. I could get different holster design to remedy that issue, but that would compromise the draw.

Still is a great gun. Good trigger, accurate, etc.

You disagree what? That M13s are very rare? They fetch in the vicinity of $1800-2000 regularly. Because they're rare.

I think if you started a poll on HKPRO asking if the single stack guns have significantly better ergonomic feel than the doublestack versions, the single stack would win in a landslide. The M13 is significantly fatter around the grip. It broke my heart the first time i held one, because i had lusted hard for one right up until the very moment i picked one up for the first time. :-/
M8s aren't worth twice as much, maybe 300 more, maybe
I paid $500 for my grade B PSP. I sold my M8 for $1200.
