    Default C.A.I imports

    How many P7's did C.A.I import?

    My buddy found one. I have never heard of that importer before.

    You have heard of C.A.I.--- Century Arms International!!!
    C.A.I. imports that I have actually seen:

    PSP- 0
    P7- 1
    P7K3- 0
    P7M8- 0
    P7M10- 0
    P7M13- 0

    The P9S is a different story--- there are probably a dozen importers of the "P7", none more valuable than another.
    PM me the details.

    Likely marked VT for Vermont, also.
    CAI is known to import small batches of higher quality surplus weapons on a onsie-twosie basis.

    I was just reading your thread on the P7 Tony. Nice collection you have going there. The markings on this P7 are as follows from left to ride on the slide: 44xxx, BMI (crossed out with two horizontal lines) 10/82 and then a bat wing looking symbol in a box. The on the frame from left to right is C.A.I. Georgia VT on one side and 44xxx bat symbol on the other.

    What I have gathered thus far from the markings is 10/82 is the date code, October 1982. Obviously as stated above CAI is the importer which is rare (I wasn't able to find another P7 with CAI marking), the BMI and bat wing symbol indicate it was German Government issued. The two horizontal lines over the BMI indicate it could have been scheduled for destruction but apparently never was destroyed. I am not sure what, if any of this is true, but that is what the trusty internet has taught me so far..

    Do you have any other info on that P7 you saw from CAI? Serial number or other markings in had? Wondering the similarities to the P7 I am looking at.

    C.A.I Imported p7 and lots of Russian and Romanian rifles to the U.S. They are widely known the the foreign imported gun world and i am surprised the OP never heard of them.

    Welcome to the site!!
    Here is the information on the only sample that I have in my data--- could be the same one:

    10/82 44740

    (C.A.I. GEORGIA VT.)(P7/BMI crossed out/BWB 415)
    (hard chromed slide and frame)(rounded heel)
    (black plastic box)

    - 2 magazines, wire cleaning brush for gas piston, takedown tool, English manual/black
    (“P7 Series/OPERATOR’S MANUAL”)
    - “HK P7 PSP 9mm HARD CHROME 2/8RD” on box label
    - left slide (“MADE IN GERMANY”)
    - thin trigger

    PM me the same information, if it is not the same.

    Tony
