I love my P7. While it does get hot after a few mags, that's not a huge issue so long as you dont touch the trigger guard. Or just wear gloves.

I have shot the P7 a buddy of mine still owns one of the oldies. Definately a superior piece of engineering. However, there is a reason the 1911 is still being built to this day .Also, I just recently bought a Non S&W Walther P99AS and it gives the P7 a side by side run for it's money in fit,finish, performance and feel. There are many more on equal par with the hk , all personal preference.

One very important reason why the P7M8 is not being produced today is because it is very expensive for H&K to produce, every pistol is also hand built.

I own many H&K pistols, and while most of them have a high bore axis, they have a tendency to shoot very accurately.

The Walter compares to a 1K + hand built pistol, and even gives it a run for it's money?

I don't know, I have shot a lot of pistols, and can honestly say that the H&K P7M8 is one of the most accurate pistols I have ever shot. I did have a H&K USPc that was almost as accurate, but that is a different story.

Yes, it is very personal, and while I would say that there are some pistols that may be as good as H&K's ( and vice versa),
I do find it hard to believe that there are many over the counter pistols that shoot as well as the P7M8.

The P7 is a better carry gun, however.

I bought one with the intention of it being my EDC. In that role it didn't surpass my G19. The act of squeezing the cocker made the P7M8 shift enough in my hand for the sights to be slightly off after the draw. The G19 was more on target after the draw, so it remains my primary carry.

P-7

The amazing thing about the H&K P-7 is that it's a decades old design that still stands the test of time kinda like the 1911.I always thought that H&K lost out by not marketing it hard to police departments in the early 80's before Glock took the world by storm. I think for police use the P-7 is much safer than the Glock and there would be far less AD's.

The P7 is one of the few compact gun designs out there that shoots a sensible round and is also very accurate during rapid fire. The closest I have gotten to the same level of speed and accuracy in a small gun was with a Bul M5 Commander, a 1911 clone, which is still markedly larger than the P7.

I will probably sell my CZ Phantom and get a P7M13 eventually.

Except for the dustcover getting hot it is a great pistol. I use to consider it's trigger to be the best striker fired pistol until the Walther PPQ was introduced.

I really like my PSP and am glad I have it. Unique, acurate, fun gun to shoot.

The amount of heat generated by repetitive shooting however keeps it from being used much and as such is not something I rely on to carry.

I even have a Milt Sparks VMII for it in excellent condition if anyone is interested.

The P7 was never all that back when it first came out and it still ain't all that. A decent pistol at once upon a time decent price. Nowadays it's a curio with an exhorbitant price.

Greatest ever? Perhaps not. Unique, yes. Accurate, yes. Heavy, yes. Marginal round capacity, yes. Pricey, yes. Had one years ago but sold it off, after a few mags the guns gets too overheated due to the gas retarding system. Was also awkwardly butt heavy for CCW.

The P7 is one of the safest pistols around, in my opinion.

That's cool.

I'm not sure which 9mms you bought and sold, but its certainly a keeper.

While I love the design and elegance of the P7 and P7M8, the M10 is just freaking ugly to me.

If you understand its peculiarities. It can be as dangerous as anything else youre not familar with, if you dont know it.

I had a P7M13 when they first came out. Paid $450 NIB for it. Spare mags were $25. Ah, the good old days.

The biggest problem with the P7's is, you pretty much either carry them, or everything else. They arent something you switch up every other day. You need to have that cocking manual of arms down, or it will bite you in the ass. Get past that, and they are great guns, accurate, easy to shoot well with, and have the fastest reload of anything going, especially the M13, with its gaping mag well.
