Good Afternoon Everyone,
I have an opportunity to pick us this severely neglected P7 for a reasonable price. As you can see from the pictures below it is in need of some love. Iíve looked at tons of posts to try and figure out exactly what I have here but am not smart enough to put all the symbols and numbers together. I guess my main concern is if itís even worth restoration. It functions just fine and I really just wanted a P7 as a shooter. I also donít want to send something off for restoration if for the off chance this gun is some kind of rarity that shouldnít be messed with. Thanks for any feedback. I appreciate it. If I do move forward, Iíll be sure to document it from start to finish.

Lots of holster carry on that. I would strongly suggest sending it off to a certified HK armorer before taking range time with it. Buffers and springs tire out so a proper servicing will ensure everything is fresh, tight, and not likely to damage the firearm by firing out of spec. As for refinish thats for the P7 collectors to chime in. Neat peice especially with the stampings.
That gun looks fine to me. Shoot it and enjoy it just as it is.
Life is an endless series of trainwrecks with only brief commercial-like breaks of happiness.
Here's one of my shooters, several thousand rounds through it. I named him Odin.
I wouldn't dream of replacing that rear sight. He's payed his dues.
that would make a nice shooter...keep it as is. congrats on your acquisition OP.
