What about this one then?That is not a factory HK finish. They came in Blue and Nickel and that is ALL. As mentioned earlier, even the nickel versions had a blued takedown button and grip screw. Oh, and "chrome" in English is just "chrom" in German. It's very easy to mark a box and a test target and say it is HK factory when it is anything but. They are lying.
Yeah man, I tell ya what, man, them dang ol’ HKs, man, talkin' bout SUH-WEET, man, dang ol' point and click, baby, just, just, dang ol' awesome, man.
Thank you for the clarification. I was concerned because I thought were suggesting that the finish on thr P7 in the photo, which you included in your post, was not original.
For full disclosure, I am the photographer/owner if those images and sweet P7's. Thanks Again!
No problem, those are beautiful.
I have a P7M8 with RTB - Miami Florida engravings on it. It is in A+ condition. I can see the rough value of them on gunbroker, I'm sure my LGS would be willing to take it off my hands for 1/2 that. I'm not really interested in selling at least in the near future but would like to know if the fact that it is a RTB makes it more, less or the same value of a pistol in the same condition.
Not a factory finish. They never left HK in chrome gentleman. The RTB story is correct and they were chromed after leaving the factory. I do believe they were sold as 'factory - new, unfired' or something like that. There are multiple topics on this here, do a search. Merry ChristmasIt is a factory HC finish. The "RTB" imports based out of Miami was selling them to the US public back in the day! That guy's particular pistol is a bit overpriced, but then again almost all of the RTB imports were usually priced well over $2k. Bo has one up for sale for way less than that one (not sure what his comes with) in regards to matching box, papers, extra mag w cleaning tools.
Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition! Names' Randy, but you can call me freakshow...
