Not compared to what an original costs.

So last night, I watched a Forgotten Weapons video on the old HK P7 series. I got to thinking, that P7 M13 looks pretty interesting, maybe I'll look for a used one to pick up.

They're weird, 20+ years old and weren't a big hit, maybe the price is reasonable... Turns out a gold Desert Eagle would be cheaper. :eek: :frown2: The M8s aren't any cheaper, either.

Anybody have one? Or any P7? Really cool how they function.

I think they weren't a hit cuz they were $1000, 20 years ago. I wish I'd bought a used one ten years ago when you could still find one for around $1500. I've shot a couple of them and they were fine shooters. Great trigger. Only serious issue is they get hot, really quickly.

Back around 2004-ish a shit ton of German police PSP's came in to the US. Condition varied greatly, and you wanted one with the most clear roll marks. $900-ish as I recall. P7M8's were about $1,300 and P7M13's were always expensive....$2,000+. What was a real bitch was finding magazines for them. I sold new in bag P7M13 mags for $200 each and I probably left money on the table.

One thing I did NOT like about any of the P7 series - when you eased up your grip and decocked the gun, that click is LOUD. Loud enough that someone might think you're cocking/making ready to fire and your situation just escalated when you're de-escalating.

For me, I'm not de-escalating anything. If I need to point my gun at you, I need to shoot you.

I've had this p7m8 since around 1993. It was given to me by a student in a scuba class I was teaching. His wife didn't like guns.

The m13 is a fat grip. Huge. The reason these never got super popular is their cost and the expensive mags. Plus they got a reputation of being unsafe since Connecticut troopers were issued them and had a habit of shooting themselves on the draw. They also get quite hot on sustained shooting. But it is an excellent shooting gun. I liked the idea of carrying it nectar if you lost it to an attacker they likely wouldn't be able to fire it immediately.

What does that front lever do? Safety?

The mag release is the lever below the trigger. The lever on the front of the grip frame cocks the gun when it's squeezed. When pressure is released it uncocks the gun.

The first versions had a heel magazine release that blended much better, that mag release was basically added for Americans that don't like heel releases. That;s why it looks like an afterthought.

Local farm store had 2 CASES of 264 Win Mag 140 gr Remington. How is it that Remington decided to retool for some 264 WM just to spit out a few pallets.

It is $75 a box and I have one, but I didn't bite.. Hoping they will put it on clearance after a few months of not selling any so I can snatch it up.

Father-in-law had a Sako chambered in 264 Win Mag. I bought 10 boxes of Remington 140gr Soft Point for him...when it became available. Legacy calibers like the 264, Remington literally drags out the dies, etc. and manufactures X amount during a production run for the calendar year.

Last time I bought some, my dealer cost was ~ $42.00 per box. Getting up towards Weatherby territory!

Ok..I thought it was reciprocal to your states law and it would allow it as shown in the restrictions link.

I remember the rcmp here were looking at the hk squeeze cocker. They liked it but felt the average cop would fuck up the squeeze part. They felt if the cop had to squeeze to prepare to fire , Unsqueeze because now he didn’t have to and back and forth would lead to trouble.
