We all have to face limits. Some guns I'm not going to own cause they cost more than my house, they're exceptionally rare or if affordable the condition is hideous. I don't buy used guns online so my self-imposed restriction limits the search territory. Anyway I dutifully shake the bushes, kick the tires at the local shops and occasional gun shows. Interesting stuff has come my way, but others are elusive such as the HK P7. I've seen the reviews, videos and photos and have been seeking one for many years. The prices on GB are crazy. Today was my lucky day, I stumbled into a 1995 P7. It's actually the first one I've ever held. The gun is in fine condition and spare 8 rd mag, box, manual and test target are intact. As best as I can determine, the markings indicate this was a German police issue. PW Arms, Redmond WA was the importer of this 9mm pistol with a contoured heel mag release. The gun looks unused. There are many interesting features of the design, the most obvious is the grip cocking system and the under barrel gas piston delay mechanism. Another unique feature is the fluted chamber that uses combustion gas jetting out the flutes to eject the spent case. The ejector can be broken and the pistol will work just fine. The P7 was one of the first pistols to use polygonal rifling. I do have a question for any HK experts. The gun model isn't designed on the pistol. The box however shows it to be a HKP7E. I understand these guns were somewhat uncommon and were issued during the transition from PSP to the P7M8. I'd appreciate any info if this in fact a P7E.
