Hey guys I have a chance to buy a p7 m8 with 2 mags, box and manual in bag. I believe it’s an early model because of black, green lined paper box. What should I be expecting to pay for a clean version with these extras?

I don't know, but that German stuff costs more. Personally I think that is a cool gun that's probably worth more for that reason alone!
I'd just pay more for one because it is a pistol with unusual design features that all seem like good ideas.

I did a little digging and found it’s an 81 model if that makes any difference. I’m debating picking it up as an investment but have no idea what I should realistically give for one. Under 1500 doing good?

where was it imported chantilly? the markings on it matter. I would say good luck finding one for 1500. I have owned several wish I still had a couple of them. picture is worth a thousand words. some of the early ones were police trade ins and had markings ground off the slide.

if you plan on shooting it just be advised that it doesn't take long for them to heat up, hot enough that you cant handle it.

The P7 models are not getting less valuable as far as I can tell. Here's my track on the P7M8:

Heckler & Koch P7M8 4.13" Bbl Pistol in 9x19.
Blue Book of Gun Values (41st Edition) indicates between $1750 in 95% condition and $2500 in 100% condition for this gun. I have 451 recorded prices for this model gun from $525 to $6969 over a period of 16 Yrs 7 Mos ending May 5, 2020. The average price as of that date was $1631. No refurbs, no refinishes, regular sights. Adjusted to two magazines. All represented as 95% or better. No distinction for import location or engineering revision, if any, no special editions, no distinctions for box, papers, tools. Current or last MSRP is $1515. The last 14 prices I have for this model since 01/01/2020 range from $1814 to $4000 averaging $2636.

PSP Track is only slightly more encouraging. Personally, I think the heel-release PSP is a better carry choice and they are accelerating in value.

Heckler & Koch P7 (PSP) Pistol in 9x19.

If you can get it $1500 or less, jump on it NOW.
As it is, it is probably a $2000-$2200 pistol.
It looks to have a bit of wear on the cocking serrations, and cant see the front of the slide well in the pic to see any holster wear.
They are not making any more, so the price will never go down.

Condition, markings, accessories, etc, all play a big role in price for HK collectors.

This is my P7M8. Paid $3400 for it last year.
This is only one of about 200 known to come to the USA.
This was hard chromed in Germany, and not imported by HK. It was chromed and imported by RTB Miami, FL
All the paperwork is marked chrome, the mags are chromed and the matching box even has "Chrome" stamped into it.
If this were imported by HK, it would be worth about $400-$700 less. For some reason the RTB imports are pretty desirable.

A month after I bought this one, I saw another chrome RTB M8 on GB go for $4700, and it only had one mag and no box.

I hope you can get a good deal on it. They are fun guns.
I am looking for a beater to carry, right now my P7s are too pretty to carry.

The photos I have don’t show the slide markings very well but I asked for better ones
It looks similar to mine. But mine has the serial number and the month/year of manufacture on the slide seperated by a round indentation marked HM. It has P7 on the oter side lower grip.
You might pay up to 3000 for a clean seldom fired P7 like that.
Do you plan to carry it concealed daily?

Sorry for being late to the party, and not to get your original thread "too" far off track; but I have to break some bad news to some of you that were either misinformed, or flat-out lied to by unscrupulous sellers. There is NO such thing as factory hard chroming on ANY P7 series handgun...NONE. There was a set of factory nickeled P7's; ALL done during 1992 (KC) production. IF it was good chroming, it was likely done at either Ford's or Tripp's.
Apologies for the interruption. Please feel free to return to the regularly scheduled programming.

I have two. Both are all black, Made in Germany, and came in the hard black plastic boxes.
One is NIB never fired, the other has been lightly fired and they are consecutive serial numbers.
I’ve got them about 15 years ago in trade toward a motorcycle I was selling.
Have no idea of the value today, or any others features or characteristics I should look for.
