Grand Power P1 Mk7 Review - The Armed LutheranThe Armed Lutheran

Interesting looking pistol. seems like therre are a number of solid reviews.

Seems that this pistol was imported by STI and now by Century so was known by another name previously.

One funky thing about it is the safety lever seems to show a red dot when the safety is engaged!?!? Is this a European thing?

Well that's aggravating. I'm a Lutheran pastor trying to browse a website called "The Armed Lutheran" and I keep getting porn pop ups. I'm hoping it's just because the site was hacked.

No porn popup here, Pastor.

Just what have you been looking at, sir? :lol:

Decent review, didn't know about the takedown procedure on it.

On my phone if I tap on the page header it loads some page about a porn app for Android. Perhaps it's only on the mobile version of the website.

ETA: Gives a new meaning to the term "gun porn." I read the review and it doesn't look like too bad a piece.

It's probably a hijacked ad with a lovely redirect. Happens all the time, and it's why I block said ads.

I've been tempted once or twice. I saw a STI GP6 a few months back at a gun show and have been intrigued every since. The reviews are good and the price is right. I'll probably give in at some point and try one out.

I've been in contact with the gentleman who runs the site and told him what was happening. His ISP confirmed that he was indeed hacked, and he had no idea. He's thanked me profusely and offered any item on his website free of charge. Now I'm in a quandary: if I take him up on his offer I feel like I'd be taking advantage of him, but on the other hand a free knife or holster would be nice.

You did do the guy a solid. No one else took the time to tell him. I'm sure you didn't tell him about the hack so you could get free stuff, but if he is greatful enough to make an offer maybe do like Iron Mike suggested or ask for 1/2 off.

Now about that safety lever. Has anyone ever seen a safety show red when the safety is ON?

I agree with Mikey - buy something and take him up on the offer. Takes some of the sting out of the generous offer, and still gives you the homeboy hookup.

I remember a local range/gun store had these back when STI was bringing them in. I looked at them but since I already owned 3 SIG P-Series guns and was not jazzed about any more d/a-s/a defensive pistols...I passed.

It seemed well made...but no more so than an XD, M&P or Glock.

I also recalled at was in the 600-700 dollar range.

For that price...I'd definitely take the HK VP-9 over that pistol. If it was 399 or so...it might have more appeal but you can get a CZ p-07 in that range and those too seem as well built as the Grand Power..or whatever they call it now.

They reduced the price to $399. I think cheaper than dirt even has them at $384 shipped.

At that price...you might want to go for it.

STI was selling those through Dawson Precision and other outlets (...and calling it the P6 or 6-somthing) and it was 650 or a little more.

At 650 or more...hell no...I would buy another Glock or the HK VP-9. But 400 or less for a niche pistol like this is not bad.

I wish I had picked up a Steyr MA-1 when CDNn had then at 325....jeez.
