I went to Pro Force and picked up an excellent condition police trade-in P7 PSP, but I honestly don't know much about it. Is there anything specific I should know about operation, maintenance, etc? The plastic grips are a little worn, are there any new wood or plastic grips available? Also, the mags are CRAZY expensive but I've heard P7M8 mags can be converted to allow use with the heel mag release. Can anyone point me towards some more info on this? I picked it up for $780 with one mag. I spent about twice what I had planned but it felt much better in my hands than the Kahr CW9 I was considering. Thanks for your help!

Congratulations - it is an excellent gun. I personalty prefer it to p7m8 since p7m8 it is actually somewhat ( tiny bit ) wider due to location of mag release.

Yes, you can have after market ( and factory grips )
No, you shouldn't try to convert the mags. PSP mags ARE available..... sometimes from Midaway, CDNN, hkpro.com

hkpro.com probably best source for P7 now, as PCT is down.....
Generally - clean it well, no lead ammo, make sure you clean cylinder...... May guess you will love it.
When I am in free states - that is my carry gun.

Take a look at Nill grips, the fit is near perfect.

No lube in the gas tube, period. Just use the scraper and the brush. Solvent on the gas piston. Do *NOT* scrape the gas piston. The edges on the piston should be sharp.

The firing pin bushing from a P7M8 can be installed on the PSP. You can then remove it without the use of a tool. You should take the firing pin out every other range trip or so for cleaning.

Head over to HKPRO if you have any questions. Congrats.

Look what I picked up today! I'm hoping to go to the range next week and try it out.

Nice P7. I fondly remember burning my finger after some rapid fire shooting...

Is that a nickel slide on there?
