Dr. Lunde, are all those done by Tripp Research? Very nice collection, I especially like that P7M10 - You don't see many of those around! http://home.comcast.net/~kbug1/images/bowdown.gif

Yes, those were done by Tripp Research.

These represent one-third of my HK P7 collection. My most valuable one is a P7K3 kit with all three calibers. Here's the pistol itself, with the .380 Auto barrel installed (it's an older photo, about two years old, and thus not as crisp as my latest work):

I think you mean the 25th Anniversary P7M8. The first P7s were made in 1979. Well, I know about them, because I bought two, #194 and #195 (consecutive serial numbers, no less). I DROSed the first on the 5th, and pick it up this Friday. I will DROS the second one on May 5th.

Interestingly, I started a FAQ for it. See: http://www.praxagora.com/lunde/HKP7M8JubileeFAQ/

I was there last week and they had 2 left. Its a very nice piece, and the fit and finish seem better than the regular version. Its next on my "to get" list http://calguns.net/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

The best thing for us is that the best (in my opinion) example of the P7, the P7M8, is the one that is certified for California.

I believe it was around $1600+ but I've seen them go for around $1400 online. Here's one for sale at THR right now = http://www.thehighroad.org/showthread.php?t=134339

$1600 is a fair price, but it's not what I would call a swinging deal. You'd cry if you knew how little I paid for my consecutive serial-numbered 25th Anniversary HK P7M8s.

The P7M8 is DOJ certified for sale until 9/10/05 and the Jubilee until 11/22/05. I have a feeling that HK will not be renewing the listing once it expires since they are no longer producing them.

While I agree that de-certification is possible, considering the initial investment made to get them certified in the first place, the little it costs to keep them certified ($200 per year), along with the fact that there'll be used P7M8s in the market for years, I see them being certified beyond the current expiration dates.

I was at City Arms (in Pacifica) today, and they had a NIB 25th Anniversary P7M8 for sale, for $1550. They also had a used P7M8, but I didn't note its price. See: http://www.city-arms.com/

A local police department used to carry them as a duty weapon. They replaced them with Glock .45's a few years ago after encountering problems. One of their sergeants told me that the drill was tap, rack, and re-assemble.

This reminds me of the safety demonstration for the blued P7M10 I bought last Monday. The gun store employee who was teaching me was trying to lock the slide back, and was using the disassembly button to do so. I told him that I'd rather not have the slide fly off the pistol and land on the floor, and proceeded to show him how to properly lock opn the slide without the use of an empty magazine.
