    HK P7 Redone... Questions...

    Just a little back story here, just over two months ago I picked up a used P7 PSP from a local dealer, I probably paid a little more then I should have... but that's ok... I'm happy with the pistol... at least so far!

    Today was the first day I got leather for the gun... (thanks to a member here on the forum!) Anyway, I slid the pistol home, and wow! I'm impressed! I want one for call full time!!! I'd love to buy an P7M10, but the $1500+ price tag has me scared, as does the fact that I can't find a holster maker who makes a holster for that weapon!

    My question is this... do you think it's possible, or would be a worthwhile investment for another company to try and acquire the rights from HK to produce the P7, or a similar squeezecocked weapon?

    I'd love to do it, maybe form my own start up in the next few years... but it would be expensive to do... and I'm not sure that people would be willing to pay the money, although there is quite the cult following of the P7 out there... from what I can tell?

    Any thoughts? Wouldn't it be nice to carry a P7 chambered in .45 ACP? Just a thought!

    Well, the very worst that could happen is that you could lose everything you own but, that is how millionaires are made...by risk taking.

    A 1,500 price tag would scare me away from a squeezer .45acp semi-auto.

    I think the grip of a "P7M7" would be prohibitively large for me.

    Those squeeze cockers have been in production for a LONG time. I wouldn't be surprised if the patent has expired or is about to expire.

    If you could build one, I'd buy it. Especially in .40 without looking like it's got water on the brain like the P7M10, and cut the weight down a lot--maybe aluminum or polymer in spots.

    Srfl, I bet you could handle one just fine. My wife has small hands and loves mine.

    If you could offer interchangable barrels/calibers, yes, I think you could have good success. The P7 is incredibly mill-intensive, and that, along with the cost of HK's "mystery steel" is the greater part of the cost.

    Microitech is supposedly making an AUG, now....

    Cool

    Polymer would not be able to sustain the tolerances required of the P7 design in my opinion. Also the cost of production would be prohibitive with all of the lower priced plastic guns on the market today as competition on the sales floor. Could go on about this but no time now.
    Don't get me wrong. I love the gun and have a few of them myself. My '85 P7 serves as my carry about 95% of the time.

    Sounds like the leather fits! I think that H&K did a prototype P7 in .45 acp. Never made it in to production. The P7M10 was nowhere as nice as the P7 in 9mm. The required increase in the the size of the slide completely changed the way the pistol handled. Stick with the 9mm.
