I'm a big fan. My P7M13,
I love the P7 Series...
Oh I love both...
I became interested in the P7M8 when it first appeared.
I read that the New Jersey State Police began issuing the model for duty. Unfortunately, some troopers suffered accidental discharges during their drawstrokes, and the agency thereupon required troopers to draw the pistols with two fingers, rather than with a regular drawstoke. A regular drawstroke which could cause the premature operation of the squeeze-cocker.
I know it’s a phenomenally made gun. My initial premise was whether it’s a fun and good shooting gun. Or are we basically
None are plum. Very nice.
Well, there’s nothing wrong with “prematurely operating the squeeze cocker” as long as you don’t prematurely operate the trigger... just sayin’
Two of mine are plum, actually
I think they shoot great, but I prefer the single stacks.
I'm trying to sell mine currently. I would keep it but I just can't justify safe queens. Like, if it wasn't worth so much I'd shoot it, but since it's unfired I can't bring myself to take it's virginity. Mine is slightly plum colored too.
Selling an HK is blasphemous.
Far be it for me to doubt the HK experts. All I know is that my 1982 PSP has turned plum, but my 1987 PSP is still black. Maybe the M8 and M13 were/are different.
Money talks, BS walks.
Try Gunbroker if you want to sell.
My '84 M8 is plum
My '79 PSP is also plum
Well I guess that depends on the HK. Lots of the stuff they're producing today is much more "run of the mill". They just blend in with the crowd now.
I much prefer the single stack P7M8 to the other one. I was able to handle both back in the day and shoot a P7M8. And I think the squeeze-cocker SA trigger was the greatest carry method ever devised and I can't understand why it's not used on other guns. It allows a perfect trigger, a reliable safety, and instinctive operation, perfect for concealed carry although the gun itself was a little heavy and had a relatively long grip.
I also like the size and shape and proportions of the P7M8. It is truly a thing of beauty in a form-follows-function sort of way. And they were beautifully made guns.
They don't call it a brick for no reason. I had one.
If you think the M13 is a brick, you should try a P7M10...
