    H&K P7 PSP questions

    Gents,

    Today, I ran across an H&K P7 (not the M8--has the heel release) at the LGS. They are asking $680+ tax for the gun, 1 extra mag, and hard case with instruction manual and bore brush.

    Thoughts?

    Also, for those of you who carry this gun, what do you carry it in?

    Thanks,
    Herk

    Price seems fair, they (the German Police Tade-ins) came in different grades, A, B, & C. If it's a B grade it's an Ok price, if it's a C...maybe/maybe not. HKparts.net has them in Chrome for $775 with 2 magazines, that would be my choice. I wish I had seen them before I bought my nickel P7.

    As for what I carry it in, I'm currently using TT Gunleather IWB: New (to me) HK P7 and TT Gunleather IWB

    I carry a P7M8, and have a Galco Royal Guard that I like quite a bit for it.

    The same holster works for the P7 as well.

    As JD said, depending on condition, the price would be fair.

    I agree with your JD's analysis.

    $680 would be the top end of what I would pay for a grade A. Grade A models can be found in the $700 range. I had a grade A P7 and loved it. It was extremely accurate with it's low bore axis. Mags are a bit expensive and finding holsters for the psp version (non M8) is a bit more challenging but very doable. Despite the extra weight of this finely made steel gun, it carries well with it's slim profile.

    If you really want to be immersed in the world of the P7, head over to the Park Cities Tactical forum and look up the cult of the P7. That forum is all about the P7. I warn you in advance, you will probably run off to buy the P7 after reading up on it over there as that is exactly what happened to me.
    Good luck and keep us posted.

    Where do I find out about the different grades? They didn't seem to want to barter--even for cash. He told me, "These are hard to get, so I can't really come down on it."

    One more question--Are there thinner grips available. They seem like the fattest part, and I don't really need quite so much bulk unless they're hiding something under the grip.

    What made you sell it?

    Why would the PSP require a different holster than the M8?

    Rumor has it that when the H & K P7 came out that the San Francisco PD training officers went thumbs down on the pistol. Something about teaching new recruits to: "Squeese, Cock, Fire!" was a problem!

    One of the guys here in LV just picked up a nice one (B) for a little over $550.00. Seem the German PD has dumped their used weapons on the market. I would shop around.

    Why would the PSP require a different holster than the M8?
    The overall shape of the M8 trigger guard and it's "American" mag release dictate a different holster than the PSP.

    Are there thinner grips available.
    There are two types of original grips, one with and one without a palm swell. Both are a little hard to find. Nill makes an excellent wood grip.

    Where do I find out about the different grades?
    The first batch of Saxony trade-in guns were graded A, B and C but the latest ones seem not to have the grade stickers. The best grade was A, B lesser and Cs were more used still. All were in good enough condition to shoot a lot. Of course not all P7s are Saxony trades and will have no grade or label at all.

    A nice P7 will run from $500 or so for a "beater" to around $800 for some really clean, pristine guns. The $680 sounds reasonable to me. I see lots of them at gun shows for $700 - $800.

    Also, for those of you who carry this gun, what do you carry it in?
    I don't usually carry it but I do think the KD Holster is a good choice. If I did carry my P7, this is what would do the job.

    They hit the market in '07 if I recall, the "source" is starting to dry up, right now they can still be had at a decent price, but who knows about later.

    I carry my M8 in a holster from Fist, with matching mag pouch. They know how to make a good stable holster for the P7s. The gun is short and butt-heavy for it's size.
    Try not to screw up so bad they name the screw up after you. (Station 15 saying)

    I actually traded it for another pistol that I thoughtvi would shoot more. I miss the P7 and may pick up a hard chromed or nickel one over the summer.

    The psp and m8 do not share the same holsters as the trigger guard area is different.
