    What a very interesting firearm... Very accurate single shots all the way out to 20 yards... trigger felt like a tuned 1911... and wowzers what a 9mm bang from that crazy blowback system it uses.:cool: <!-- / message --><!-- BEGIN TEMPLATE: ad_showthread_firstpost_sig --><!-- END TEMPLATE: ad_showthread_firstpost_sig --><!-- sig -->

    Yeah I was shocked I had never even seen one or heard of them... I like want one so bad now for my sister I think its perfect. If you understand the basic sight profile your going to hit your mark... trigger control and grip be damned...

    I need one now:wavey:... I wasnt a fan of the under mag release but... they have other models as well.

    P7M8 puts the mag release where it ought to be. Costs more. Has better heat shielding than the regular P7. Same sweet shooter. I have 30 handguns including eight Glocks and this one is my favorite.

    ETA: But I have a Volkmann Custom 1911 that delivers Friday so I may or may not have to amend my position. None of my other 1911's tops the P7M8.

    I picked up one of the Police trade PSP's a couple years ago and fell in love with it. The only thing I didn't like was the mag release. I figured at some point I would get it refinished (one of the Grade "B" ones) but it was not a priority.

    Last week I stumbled across a fantastic deal on a used P7M8, like new condition, no box with night sights and 2 mags for $750+tax. I bought it on the spot. My PSP was gone the day I posted it for sale (probably should have asked for more...).

    Bottom line, I "upgraded" for less than $200. With shipping, the refinish job would have cost me more. The M8 is awesome, shoots even tighter than the PSP did, and with the "normal" mag release it will become a carry weapon instead of just a range gun.

    ^ 911Boss,

    That P7M8 is almost mint, for $750 you practically stole it! :thumbsup:

    I paid $650 for a very slightly used P7M8 in the late 1980's.

    That was a HUGE amount of money, back in those days, but I've never regretted it.

    They are just wonderfully accurate, and reliable, even with my many times reloaded range pick up brass.

    In all the years I've owned it, with all the thousands of rounds (ALL reloads, BTW) I've put through it, I've never had any failures of any kind.

    I sure can't say that about my 1911 :faint:

    agreed

    the only auto pistols I own are a P7 and homebuilt 1911s

    I like them so much I designed the iScott scraper!

    I just picked up a P7 PSP in near perfect condition. It was a Police Trade in. Internals were like new. The mag release on the bottom is foreign to us Americans, but has a few advantages. I can reload nearly as fast with the bottom mag release. I just need to change the way I reload a bit. Different gun, different procedure. I will pick up a few more AND keep an eye out for a P7M8 just for the fun of it.

    BTW, I am looking for night sights for the P7 PSP. I want Trijicon, not Meprolight.

    Can anybody help? $119.00 retails seems a bit high.

    Thanks!!:cool:
     
  16. There may be some cheaper, but keep in mind the gun that you got. Things for the P7 are more expensive than the average. Kinda like owning a high-end German car.

    Also, I've had difficulty finding someone to install night sights on my P7 in the Dallas area. One shop was too afraid to even attempt it!

    My advice, don't change the factory sights. The front sight on your P7 is one of seven different heights.

    Send the slide to Tooltech and have them install Trijicon lamps in the factory sights. It will cost you about the price you've quoted above, but it will be done right and that is ultimately what is most important. :)

    I have a 12" gong @ 50yds in my front yard. Hitting it with my P7 is pretty much automatic now. I just lean against my garage in a reclined position and use my knees for support.

    This week I set up a rectangular 12"x16" one @ 100yds. I can usually get 6 or 7 on target, but haven't gotten a perfect 8-of-8 yet.

    They are amazingly accurate. Mine's just a Grade C, Lower Saxony refurbish. Has the "DE" on the slide, with silver serial numbers 836x. I believe that puts it in the 1982 area. No date code or date stamp on some of these. Came with one mag, purchased 2 more later. Carry it in a CTAC Minotaur.

    I've gotten used to the mag-release on the heal, but I've also owned 13 Ruger MKII's so it wasn't that big of deal for me.
