Default HK P7M10

I was in Elite Firearms in Mission Viejo yesterday and they had a pristine HK P7M10 for sale. It was the nickel finish and seemed to be at a pretty darn good price. I know that there are a lot of HK fans here and just thought I would throw this info out in case anyone was looking for one!

I sold a LNIB to a member here a few years ago.

They're a novelty, the grip is big, bulky and square. The gun is overall an ackward scale.

The P7 is ideal in 9mm size wise...the slide on the M10 is massive...

The P7M13 is the ideal P7. It is not much fatter than the M8 and holds 13 rounds. It has a light (3.5 lbs) single action trigger once the cocking lever is depressed and it has probably what amounts to the lowest barrel axis of any semi-automatic limiting muzzle lift. Unlike tilting barrel designs, the P7 is practically immune to being limp wristed. The chamber is fluted like in MP5 SMGs, and the gun will extract and eject the cases even if you remove the extractor claw. The barrel is 4.13" which is almost 1 inch longer than in a Walther PPS although the guns are essentially the same overall length. Typical accuracy out of a P7 is about 1.25~1.5" groups at 25 yards, which is pretty darn good for a factory made combat pistol -- thanks in part to the stationary barrel.

The P7M10 is made only in very small numbers. Because the P7 relies on a gas piston to retard the slide's reward movement, it is technically speaking not a locked breech gun. The slide starts to move the moment the prime ignites the powder. But, because part of the gases are tapped off to a cylinder under the barrel and impinges against a piston pushing the slide forward, the reward movement of the slide is significantly less than a blow back pistol until the bullet leaves the barrel and the pressures in the bore and gas cylinder falls. Nonetheless, the slide is not locked. And in the case of the .40S&W P7M10, it was necessary to increase the slide mass significantly. The P7M10 (and the P7M7 in 45ACP for that matter) has bully slides. The P7M10 also has traditional rifling unlike the 9mm P7M8 and P7M13 which have mandrel forged polygonal rifling. This is because the anticipated production volume did not justify tooling up to do polygonal barrels for the M10.

One interesting thing about M10s is that for the most parts P7M10 magazines can be used in P7M13s. They'll generally feed reliably and hold 13 9mm rounds. This became a source for more affordable M13 magazines following the 10 round ban and the scarcity of M13 magazines leading to prices between $130 and $250 for a genuine M13 mag.

I stumbled into Elite Firearms today and bought the P7M10, I have a P7M13 and P7M8 they are the most reliable and most accurate of all the guns I own. $3,500 is a fair price without the hassle of Gunbroker, or online sales.

congrats CypherDoc - I saw the P7M10 last week after leaving On Target and knew that it wouldn't last long =]

Elite also has a used Perazzi MX-8 for $6k.

Default P7 Finished

The original P7M8 and M13 came in blue only. The P7M10 came in Blue and Nickel. (for the few 100's made). Later releases issued the P7M8 in nickel.

I like the Blue best, Nickel is just a bit yellow for my taste. Nothing like hard chrome. I am thinking about having my Nickel P7M10 redone in MP3 or Hard Chrome (Bob Coogan - does the best hard chrome job)

I did pick up a P7M8 with MP3 (NP3) finish, it's a nice metallic grey.

Regards

$2,200.00. I think, but I am not positive. It has been there awhile, at least 6 months if not more.

I may have to stop by this weekend...that is a pretty good price, depending on condition and extras.

For folks who haven't seen them, this is what the M10 looks like


...compared to a regular P7


And the super rare P7M7...which uses hydraulic cylinder instead of a gas one to retard the slide

Was it a PSP? I bought a M13 from a list member a couple of years ago for $2200 and think that was a fair price. I would love to find a M7. I doubt I could afford it though.

My dad owns a H&K P7M13. He used to carry the M13 as a duty weapon, now that they switched over to glock the dept. Sold my dad the M13 for a dollar. Best deal ever lol they shoot nice and are rare to come across.

I'm not sure if anyone is actually paying over three-grand for the guns. But likely very close. The entire P7-series are fantastic guns, they don't make them any longer, and they were quite expensive even when they did make them.
If you ever have a chance to handle one, let alone shoot one, you'll understand. Not saying you don't know your guns, mind you. But they are very collectable when in truly NIB shape, particularly when they have all the factory bits and the proper, matching serialized box.

The m7 isn't for sale, there were only literally few made as prototypes, and hk owns all of them.
