Do a house clearing with that squeeze cocker and it is a dead give away. As a service pistol it has proven its limits, as a range gun it is great for heat resistent hands.
In the winter it's great to have warm hands!!
You are just a P7 infidel!

I take the P7 for what it is, no emotional attachment. I hate the hammer bite of the SIG P210 and had to cut my hammer. I would not know of one single handgun that I find perfect, not even if a clever marketing campaign has made "perfection" their slogan.

Since there are different applications, there can't be just one gun fitting all needs.
But as a CCW pistol, the P7 platform offers several great advantages.

There are no special interpretation skills necessary to see that this is what I meant, agreed? The built quality is another virtue, it is also what phased the P7, the Hämmerli 208/212, and the SIG P210 out.

Actually there is a new version of the P210.
And production cost is the biggest reason for discounting the P7M series.

This is why I pointed the quality out.

I am long aware of the new SIG P210 made in Eckernförde. I have seen the production line and I have shot a few of the new guns.

I prefer my obsolete Swiss model. What do you expect from an old guy like me? I am a Cold War warrior.

They are nice but would not say its the best or only 9mm worth owning. If it were they would still be manufactured today and not discontinued.

Not necessarily true...

There are many great pistols that have been discontinued. It's usually due to manufacturing costs.

Yes, it's a beautiful pistol and very ergonomic, but heavy and that "squeeze thing" definitely turned me off to buying one.

The P7 may be an icon, but so too is the German Luger that has been surpassed by dozens of following designs since.

Sweet custom P7. I like it.

I have a factory nickel P7M8 safe queen. Gets looked at a lot and never shot.

My point also. For a collector the P7 is a dream; for someone looking for home defense or personal CCW carry there are many more effective options available without the negatives the P7 bring to the table.

I like my P7M8 ... Jubilee edition 1 of 500...
Really accurate, nice trigger, good for ccw

I don't like cleaning it and really don't like how it heats up fast in shooting.

I place many of my pistols above it for self defense. Great show and tell gun.

Much talk about the P7 heating up. I don't have that problem, but then again, I don't normally dump a lot of mags for that to happen.

Any gun could be argued is not the best for a specific scenario, but to rule out the P7 would be a mistake.

Also, cleaning doesn't seem to be a big deal. I ordered a special tool for scraping the piston tube. Not any harder than any other handgun I have....revolvers seem to be the most difficult and time consuming for me.

P7 is in my CCW rotation along with the Shield. I use an Andrews MacDaniel IWB leather rig and it works great on the P7. For what it's worth, the P7 is the only 9mm handgun my wife actually enjoys shooting and would consider carrying based on its inherent safety with one in the chamber. Many folks do not like the thought of one in the chamber (spare the comments about you might as well carry a rock, I understand) but a P7 by design provides piece of mind to those folks, including my wife.
