    Default HK P9 & HK P7 M8 question

    I just recently acquired these two pistols at some local gun shows. Does anyone know where I can find a factory test target for the HK P9?
    The gun is new in the box and I have the warranty card and manual. The HK P7 M8 was engraved
    and some people told me it was done by the factory and some said it's aftermarket. Which one is it?

    Nice P9. Test targets aren't normally floating around. Especially, for particular pistols.

    Like mmissile said, very few blank test targets have come up. Test targets are usually serialized to a specific gun. That P7 doesn’t look like any factory engraving I’ve ever seen.

    Very nice on both!!!
    Questions/comments on the P9/P7M8:

    P9

    1. Is it the German manual (orange; front- P9 pointed up and left- “Selbstladepistole/Mod. P9 (no S); back- P9 spelled out in bullets)?
    2. Is the right frame dated "72"?
    3. Is the importer SACO/Arlington, or other?

    A. Unusual not to have the styrofoam insert for extra magazine

    P7M8

    A. Unusual not to have the "fat" trigger

    1. Originally yes but, the guy said he threw it in the garbage years ago.
    2. Yes it's dated 72.
    3. The importer is SACO.
    4. 1 of 485 produced

    I had a P9 box that I picked up off Gunbroker a while back and that is what I am using for the gun. I usually walk around the local gun shows looking for old HK pistols. So whenever
    a P7, P9s, P9, or Mod 4 walks in I am trying to look at it and making an offer.

    Didn't know it was unusual for the P7 M8 not to have the "fat" trigger.

    The "fat" triggers on P7M8's are generally found on ID-IG (83-86) models--- yours is IE (84)--- I really like the engraving.

    Good eye Tony, this P7 M8 appears to have the earlier PSP/P7 trigger.
