A few problems with the P7.
Some police users squeezed the trigger with the squeeze cocker together, producing a tragic unintended discharge. H&K put a lot of effort and complexity to ensure you could do things in any order; perhaps it would be safer and simpler (i.e. cheaper) to require the squeeze cocking to be done first, and then pulling the trigger.
The gun is heavy. Perhaps some of the lower could be made in polymer.
The gun is tall. If it could be made lightweight and not so tall, it might make a great pocket pistol. (Just an option.)
The trigger is too light for devotees of Massad Ayoob who worry about prosecutors falsely claiming a shot was fired accidentally. So add an option for heavier trigger-return springs, bringing the trigger weight to whatever the lawyers demand. The important thing is you would still have minimal trigger backlash when the shot breaks as with a light trigger, and the heavier spring would just let you manipulate the trigger faster without your finger leaving the trigger.
It is very difficult to deeply conceal a decent sized pistol with ready access while dressed in business-casual (no jacket; tucked-in shirt). I have found two of them -- CCWBreakaways and the JJ Racaza 0.50-Thirty / Frema holster. For both types of carry, a squeeze cocker is a huge advantage in making the carry safe. And the flatness of the single-stack P7 is another huge advantage.
nice mock-up!! I would want one of them tomorrow if not sooner)))
This is great. I am ready to buy!
Haha, we bumped a thread from 1.5 years ago.
Forget the fancy colors, short slide, long slide, and optics cut, I just want a VP9 with a darn mag release button!
I have never seen this thread before, at least I don't remember seeing it however; I buy one of these in a heartbeat.
