    Default Royal Blue P7M13

    I have been looking at this thing for a while trying to figure out if its an extremely rare finish option, or an aftermarket job:

    Anybody know for sure? I'd normally suspect its aftermarket, but I know there were some USPc's with that style of finish.

    Forget the fancy colors, short slide, long slide, and optics cut, I just want a VP9 with a darn mag release button!

    Looks like a 550 Mirror Polish Hot Blue refinish.

    Bubba strikes again... That’s one Guinness Book of Records of a hack job.

    Checkering is “Let me try this, I watched a video once” grade, the polisher messed up all the lines, flats, and corners he could find, then managed to mess up some surfaces that were not yet invented... It would be thrilling to see what interesting concept he developed to deal with the internals.

    Yep, sold for a lot toooo much. They don’t make them like this, this gun has been butchered beyond redemption. No reputable refinisher will ever agree to touch it with a ten foot pole.

    If one really wants a shiny-polished P7 (or anything), he better buy one with a very poor finish at a good price, and send it to a professional refinisher, who’ll polish it and blue it the way it’s supposed to be done...

    Agree. I been watching P7M13's . IMHO , the prices on them have been all over the place. What I must say is interesting, is that I see LNIB examples selling for not too much more than just nice "shooters ". Interesting.....

    As others have said. Look like a "melt down" job on the slide and lots of hand polishing on the slide....does not look like the lettering was rounded off with a bubba buffing wheel job. Checkering on back strap was a complete waste a few minutes. I'm sure the OP paid a good price for the time involved with the polishing/bluing job. But, on a HK p7...and especially a M13 model. Makes my heart ache!!!!

    The term 'LNIB' is often misapplied. I have seen many P7s for sale and represented as such yet the photos reveal a different story.
    Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side, kid.
