    Default P7 blued or black??

    I've seen references of P7 M13 as being blued and as black. Is there a difference or are they just referring to a gun with a blued finish?

    "Bluing" does not always mean a blue color. Bluing means a chemical process--of which there are several--that passivates the steel in order to partially protect the steel. Check here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bluing_%28steel%29
    Sparkplugs are irrelevant.
    Plenty of HK's and clones.

    A "blued" (finished) P7M13 will appear "black" in color!!!

    Thanks guys. Man, that link can get technical. So, I'm assuming there is only one version of a "blued" P7 and it looks black. Unless it has received a refinish job of some type of black coating.

    Or a "factory nickel" P7M8/P7M10/P7M13, or a "blued" P7 PSP or P7M8 with a "plum" slide (secondary to oxidation of the bluing utilized)!!!
