H&K P7M13 Review

General Firearms Forum

General Firearms Forum


The H&K P7M13 (and all P7 variants) is a very interesting gun. I've had mine for a while and every time it makes an appearance at the range it always seems to draw a crowd. Here's a summary of my impressions of the gun:

Pros:
-Extremely reliable. This gun has never had a single malfunction in my hands
-Excellent trigger
-I'm a fan of the mag ambi mag release
-Very sleek lines and it's pretty slim overall for a 13+1 gun
-I have large hands and like how the gun feels in the hand but those with smaller hands may be better off going with the P7M8
-Very low bore axis combined with the piston system (more on this in the video below) make for a very, very light recoil impulse.
-Easy and fast reloads can be accomplished with the use of the squeeze cocker
-No magazine safety
-Excellent accuracy from the fixed, cold hammer forged barrel
-Fluted chamber for increased reliability under adverse conditions
-Top of the slide is milled to reduce glare

Cons:
-Cost. They're expensive and no longer in production. Mags aren't cheap either. The prices on gunbroker seem to be all over the place but they pretty much start at $1300 and go up a good bit for a good condition or rare model
-It gets hot after a few magazines of rapid shooting
-Cleaning the gas system is somewhat annoying but it's not a deal breaker in my opinion

All in all it's an excellent firearm as you'd expect from H&K. In the review below I do some shooting, explain/demonstrate the unique features of the gun, and go over the pros/cons of it overall:

Nice.

I'd love to have the P7m8 model.

That's an awesome review of a great firearm. I've got the P7M8 and P7M10 and love them both.

Great review. I'd love to have a P7M13 but the budget says no (for now, anyway).

I've always wanted to shoot one. What are the differences in the models? P7M8, P7M10, P7M13?

M8 = single stack 9mm
M13 = double stack 9mm
M10 = double stack 40S&W

There is also a P7K3 model, which is a little smaller and convertible between 22lr, 32ACP, and 380.

I've never heard of that one; learn something new every day!

Here's one in 380.

Here's the rimfire slide and barrel for one.

As you can see, the price of these (or any of the P7 series) is quite high.

I can't look at GB until I get home, but I believe it. I've never seen one under $1k.

Out of my price range for sure, as much as I'd love to have one.

You can still get a PSP for a decent price...

M8 & PSP- sexy slim and functional

M13- fat assed and out of ballance but still a bit sexy

M10- not sexy, HK's version of a hi-point

I have a friend in town that has a collection and he got one of the surplus I think it's a PSP that was "Cosmetically challenged" and had it refinished in a hard two tone as his EDC.

The M10 is not nearly as nice looking as the M8, but it's one of the most accurate and soft shooting 40's I own.

I've never gotten my grubby little paws on a M10
