    Default New to me HK P7

    Hi folks, I am a new member to the forum, and have a question. I just recently inherited an HK P7 in nickel. I do not know much about this gun, as it was my wife’s grandfather’s. I was inspecting the firearm and to my surprise, it has never been fired, in fact there was a small piece of paper inside the gun that had the serial number printed on it. So it had also never been field stripped either. I have read on here that they shoot great and a lot of you fine members really like them. So I guess my question is, should I enjoy the gun or should I just keep it in its box and keep it in its mint condition. Thanks for all that reply. I appreciate all of your input.
    Also, it only has one mag, no bore brush or scrapper, should I look into purchasing those, I did notice those items are quite spendy. Thanks again.

    The P7 was never offered in Nickel. So, you more likely have a P7 that was refinished.
    There were a limited number of P7M8, M10 and M13 offered in Nickel, but only in a certain year range.

    Hi Sam and welcome to to the forum. The keyword here is “P7”. I’m not saying it’s not possible, but factory Nickel P7s are extremely rare. Most collectors will tell you that they don’t exist, but I can tell you for a fact that they do. There are some factory Nickel P7M8s, P7M10s and P7M13s. The majority of those will have a KC (1992) date code. It’s is very hard to know exactly what you have without seeing pictures of the markings. Please post some pics and we will be able to tell you exactly what you have.

    Sorry for the confusion, I watched a video on you tube and the person called this color nickel. It’s more of a stainless I guess.

    Appears to more likely be a refinish in Robar NP3. Not a factory finish though.

    Don't clean it with Hoppes #9. It's not supposed to be used on nickel plating.

    Very nice P7 that was made in 1981 (IB), but like @Marine0303 said, it does not appear to be a factory finish. It’s not a collector piece so go ahead and enjoy it/ shoot it.

    Yep. As said, shoot it! No real collector value, but the fun (of shooting it) factor is off the charts.

    Thank you for all your help, I will report back after we take it to the range. I found some mags on eBay I just ordered, people are very proud of those too. Thanks again.
