I got in the West German police trade in early. Ended up with 5 of the PSP and M8 versions. Always figured I would use them as trade bait. Then I shot them, true love. Kept them all. What a great piece of firearm engineering.

I've shot a few of them. Always loved the 9mm's!!!

This gun has always been the bane of my shooting pleasure! I've always said that I was going to grab one. New, way back in the early 90's, then I looked at a few police trade in's years ago, but EVERY SINGLE TIME, something always comes up, and prevents me from getting one.

I remember shooter grades going for $500-$600, Which now are easily $1000+.

One of these days!!!!

The design was started in the mid 1970's, but the P7 didn't hit production until 1979.

Here's mine from 1979, with a low 4-digit serial number (3557).

Members have helped me with holsters and mags.

I had begun searching for mags and there are 4 in stock for $99 each at Birmingham Pistol if anyone needs any, which is current as of this morning. If anyone needs mags, I thought I would pass it along. I found them on their internet site.

Back in 1999 before the surplus pistols arrived, I bought a brand new P7PSP from the final commercial run by HK. I ordered it through Bud's Gun Shop (before it became the corporation it is now) for $950.

I got one of the police trade in PSP from CDNN for $500 or so. It is one of those guns that look odd, but once you handle it and shoot it, you realize how sweet it is.

Now it's probably too expensive to carry.

PSPs did not begin coming into the United States until 1979, and none were available commercially anywhere before 1978.

I have a P7, serial number 14527, proofed 1980.

I have two of the PSP versions.

These are seriously accurate pistols. P210 accurate.

Mine are both shot from time to time but not a lot.

Both slides have gone very plum color.

Leave as is or refinish?

Your description of a plum color is common on some older HKs and there is no need to refinish. I refinished for John Norrell Arms 12 years on weekends to be around exotic weaponry but would suggest you keep your pistols original.

The plum color is very common. No way I’d refinish.

They are definitely accurate pistols. Swiss P210’s would shoot 10 rounds into a 1.5” group at 50 meters. They aren’t that, but still impressive.

Don’t refinish a plum slide. It adds to the cool factor IMO and frankly one day P7s will be collectible/historic(more so then now) and somebody in the future will curse you for refinishing.

Picked up a few around seven years ago for the $500 price. Great shooters but it’s the only handgun I’ve had a nd with. MG

Who made this shoulder holster? A member traded it and neither he or I are sure! Very comfortable and while marked P7M8, you can see it fits my P7 well.

I wish some manufacturer would make a P7 clone without the squeeze cocker and instead, use a safe action trigger system. Everything else from the steel frame/slide, grip angle, piston system, toggle mag releases, etc, kept the same.

^^^ IMHO that would run directly contrary to the purpose of the design - to have a safe pistol with a nice, clean trigger. Drop safety and and a clean, light trigger pull were originally the main concerns, but avoiding the pinch and calluses on the tip of the trigger finger is a benefit, too.

What he said.

I’d sooner give up the gas blowback/fixed barrel then the squeeze cocker and trigger.

Both of those together though, make for an exceptionally accurate pistol.
