Yeah, the patent expired a long time ago, as far as I know.

General Firearms Forum

There is no way the P7 trigger can compare to this one that Ted Yost worked on. I don't think the ergonomics will grow on me as much as the 1911, the trigger can't compare, and the sight radius is shorter. How will more work with the P7 make it as accurate as the 1911?

A Yost 1911 is going to beat just about any stock handgun, but a P7 is about the most accurate non-1911 I've personally shot.

In my experience a stock P7 trigger is as good, if not better than a stock 1911 trigger...dependent upon brand.

You're right though, the ergonomics of a 1911 can't be beat. Out of the two, I'd go 1911.

The one I shot belonging to my friend must have been a bad example then. I was not overly impressed with it. It looks like I'll have to find a couple more to try.

Was it a Yost 1911?

I never heard of a bad one. It's not a production gun where a bad one will slip through once in a while. It's a custom gun built and tested by one person.

I ended up with a surplus Bianchi Acculock (instrucions in German, and the guy at Bianchi was curious how I got hold of one, the part number isn't even his system). I am just glad I finally have ANY holster to carry my PSP in. I wish I could get one in brown.

4-6months wait for Milt Sparks.

Recently picked up a new Del Fatti ISP

No sorry for the confusion, the gun Yost worked on is excellent. I meant the HK P7 that I have shot belonging to my friend didn't feel all that great.

I think the P7 is a tremendous pistol, but I don't know if I could say that Amy pistol is the best ever. There are a handful IMO that are so excellent, yet different to the other great ones. The Browning Hi Power, 1911, Glock, CZ 75, are all awesome in there own ways.

I am a fan of the P7 as well. I had one in the 80s and let it slip though my fingers. A few months ago I found a mint PSP and remember why I fell in love with them. It has cost me a fortune in holster so far. I even bought a safariland drop leg for it the other day to use during firearms classes.

Null makes a great IWB holster I would hold up to a Del Fatti anyday. Nothing against Matthew , but Null makes a fine fine holster . I have a Bianchi Askins avenger and a Bianchi #19 for it as well.

I got some extended range time in the late 90s with an M8 or M10. Nice pistol, but to me it was just quirky enough if someone had told me Saab designed it I wouldn't have argued.

Greatest pistol ever made? That's a bit of a reach. When they were first introduced a lot of police switched over to them. As I recall, there were plenty of AD's, because in high stress situations motor control changes, and it's often difficult to squeeze the grip without squeezing the trigger.
As far as superior accuracy goes, I'll put the 50m test target that came with my P210, or the 25m test target that came with my P88 against any P7 factory pistol.
I had a P9S years ago that was incredably accurate, but not really built for a leftie.
