After my H&K P7 breaking down this weekend it was time for a new EDC. I bought this BHP back in 77 as a graduation present to myself and have babied it over the years. It's had a few upgrades and is a fantastic shooter. Put 150 rounds of Speer GD's through it and it's now riding on my hip in an HBE COM III. I feel good and well armed! :smile:

How did your P7 break?

But a great HP anyway.

Don't have a clue. When applying pressure to the squeeze cocker it felt much heavier than normal. Took the grips off to see if anything obvious was wrong and didn't see anything glaring at me.

There's too many moving parts inside of it for me to figure it out.

Know a good H&K gunsmith or have any ideas as why the pressure has gone way up?

Gives me an excuse to finally start using the HP. It's a great handling semi and I packed a 1911 for close to 20 years so I'm very familiar with the weapon.

HP's are the most eligant handguns ever built. I have a few. I love their looks.

When I look at those pics I get sentimental :redface: . I am a huge fan this gun; I love how it looks and how it shoots. I believe that the HP and the 1911 are two of the best firearms ever made; two seniors that still are in top form. Congrats to a beautiful firearm! :congrats:

Welcome back to the P-35.

IMHO it is the finest handgun designed and made.

No worries. I'm allergic to plastic! Carry an Epi kit in case I accidentily touch it. A Glock almost took me out years ago so I've been very careful to avoid the buggers. :smile:
