    That sounds pretty reasonable considering the sights and extra mag. That sounds like the LEO package that goes for about $850 new. Great gun, well worth owning.

    Variant 7 DAO, or does it have the LEM trigger?

    It's a decent deal; if it had the LEM trigger (which is a little more desireable) it would be a very good deal.

    I'd buy it, more than likely.

    yeah i really want the SA/DA because it has a safety/decock, but its 799 and my wife says that is to much for a gun and wonders why i cant get a cheaper gun, i told her that this is the one i want its the one that feels right and i like everything about it, i mean yeah it is a little much but its the one that im comfortable with and want.

    Magazines are a big rip off to buy seperately for a new gun (that usually only comes with one now). So, if you can get three mags then you can figure about $30 each for the two extras.

    You can get it switched to a Variant 1 (DA/SA w/safety & decocker, set up for right hand; if you're a lefty, it'd be a Variant 2); contact HK for a price.

    As I understand, it's not too terribly hard as a DIY project, but it's been a while since I saw a kit...

    I think it'd just be called a "Variant 1 trigger kit"...that would put the safety/decocker lever on the left side of the pistol, for right-handed use.

    IIRC, HK won't sell you one unless you're an HK armorer.

    Check out HKPRO (HKPRO) for a lot more info on this...

    Night Sights. I guess they are for shooting targets that glow in the dark as well. 25 years of night point and shoot with a S&W model 15 with non glowing Night Sights iron sights and 2 tours in South east Asia with out Night Sights.....How did I ever survive!
