    Default New (used) H&K P7

    I recently bought this P7, which I believe to be a "regular" PSP, not an M8, and certainly not an M13. The mag release in on the bottom of the grip, and the mag holds 8 rounds. I understand it is a German police pistol and imported from Germany. I paid $600, but have yet to test it at the range.

    Anyone know where I can get a gas cylinder cleaning tool and a spare mag? I don't want to get the wrong mag; I know there are differences. The grips say "P7" on them......

    You have a P7/PSP or "heeler" as we call them due to the mag release being on the "heel" of the grip. Midway USA stocks the gas cylinder cleaning brush and scraper. The scraper runs just under $30 but is a neccessity, the brush is about $8. I'd encourage you to buy both. New mags run in the $75 to $90 area depending on where bought. Check HKspecialiststore.com for the mags. I bought several he was selling as used but I would have sworn were new for $31 each. Hopefully, he still has some as you can see there damm expensive and can also be really hard to come buy. I'd recommend you have at least four for your gun, otherwise you'll spend a lot of range time loading ammo. You bought a great pistola and IMO the P7s are the most accurate and best made 9mms available, enjoy!!!

    To be completely technical you have a P7. A P7 PSP has an exposed heel release while the P7's heel release is covered by the grip panels. Congrats on owning such a fine tool.

    Rod:
    FYI - Your used P7 police trade-in is from the German state of Niedersachsen (Lower Saxony) in the upper NW corner of Germany. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lower_Saxony
    The NDS property marking on the slide verifies that. At one time most states in Germany employed the P7 as their standard "Police Self-loading Pistol" (PSP) and the HK P7 was one of various vendor candidates tested before the P7 was adopted. I believe Bavaria is the one last state with P7's though that info may be dated.

    Your P7 is a very early one as evidenced by the low serial number, probably 1981 or '82. Most slides are dated, but yours is not. Nice gun, enjoy it. My one caution is to be careful cleaning the piston...resist the temptation to over clean with picks, etc. Use a soft brush, carbon cleaner and cloth... they will suffice. A little carbon build up is normal. Keep the piston cylinder as clean as possible.

    Thank you for the kind comments and advice. I am considering Robar NP3 refinishing. I need to air it out a bit at the range Friday, then decide on the refinishing.

    Here is a photo of the piston, as I received the pistol....

    I thought it looked father clean, spotless in fact, but since I've never seen a dirty piston, I had no idea of how different they'd look. I guess the fact that it has been replaced is a good sign.....that the pistol was examined before being sold. I assume it went thru HK before reaching the store.
