    Default P7M13 slide question

    Looking at a 1990 P7M13 Sterling import. Gun looks like new ( no box ) has two 1989 dated magazines and all the tools. Seller has it priced at 2500.00 total . One issue. Slide has somewhat purple / plum color to it. All the lettering is in the white. I only notice it when the gun is under the light . Is this normal ?

    Normal. Do a search with the terms "plum slide" lots of info.
    Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side, kid.

    Not only normal, but in fact usual from my somewhat limited experience.
    That also sounds like a decent deal in todays world.

    I haven't been following them much lately. I thought for 2500.00 it's gotta be 99% in matching Box with everything in it

    Young Frankenstein? Anyone? I would say hk said that they were acceptable, passing qc. Imagine doing all that work, and during the last step something that had no effect on the gun other than cosmetic occurs, a bad bluing job. They certainly didn't intend for a few batches to plum, but they did. And not on purpose. If you say it's normal, fine with me.

    Normal as in not out of the ordinary. Whether you prefer it or not is a different thing altogether.

    NOT NORMAL!!! The keyword here is "ALL" the lettering is in white. All of the lettering/proofs on a 1990 (IK) pistol would would have been in Silver stenciling EXCEPT "M13" and "HK Inc. Sterling VA". The ONLY P7 Series Pistols from the 90's with ALL lettering and proof marks in Silver are the 127 KD date code, CAT-7454 marked P7 M10s, the 100 KE date code P7k3's, and the ultra rare KE date code commercial import P7s (approximately 70 made). The Purple/Plum slide is common on P7 series pistols, but I would be very concerned that it has been re-blued "IF" all the letters are silver or white.
