    Default Tell me about this pistol -P7, PSP pics

    Please help me understand thr different variations between a P7 or PSP as to what I have.

    I obtained this in a Rolex trade and have since obtained PSP mags and P7 mags which fit.

    Here is 1 side:

    Here is the other and its SN.

    Any information as how I tell the difference between a P7 and PSP is good; members have explained some things on my sister pistol HK Mk 23 on the for sale board where I mentioned this gun.

    This P7 is not for sale. It shoots great!

    I suspect what you really want differentiation between is P7 PSP and P7 M8; as I recall, the basic differences is that the P7 PSP has a butt-heel magazine release, and that there were at least 2 variants in the configuration of the release lever and the grip plates, and the P7 M8 has the side lever magazine releases, and revised and enlarged triggerguard incorporating a heat shield (of only moderate effectiveness...). Magazines are different between the two main variants as well; I believe P7 M8 magazines, pricey as they are, are more easily obtainable than PSP magazines.

    I'm sure others more experienced in the nuances of various P7 variants will chime in. In the 1990s, I personally owned one of the last of the HK P7 PSPs produced for the commercial market, with the final revision of the butt-heel release lever and grip plates, where the release was more streamlined into the pistol's butt profile.

    Nice P7 PSP, by the way. It looks like one of the German police turn-ins, by the "NDS" stamp (Neiderschweinstein Police, I believe).

    Best, Jon

    Ah yes, one of the elusive Neiderschweinstein PD guns, very cool indeed.
    Life is an endless series of trainwrecks with only brief commercial-like breaks of happiness.

    AGG is right! The first run of PSP up to serial 239 even do have one magazines which were manufactured by hand. Those will only work with the first PSPs.

    P7M7 says about the magazines, different mag release systems...the PSP (stood for Pistol-Self loading-Police) the later models, aimed primarily at the US Market had the US preferred side of the grip, thumb magazine release. Not interchangeable.
    PS: I had a friend contact me yesterday, has a P7 PSP, P7M8 german manufacture and a P7M8 WEST GERMAN manufacture he want to sell. Any Interest and I'll some prices from him.
    Thanks all: Phil Flack
