I may be mistaken, but it appears that the earlier version IF 1985 front site was pin staked.
The later AH 2007 appears to have a different shaped front site leaving no place to put a pin stake.
But I could be completely wrong.
Love the side by side EXCELLENT pictures of these two superb examples of HK P7 M8's - THANK YOU.
I love this kind of thread. Learn something new and the site gets another sticky with two super examples of HK P7 M8, so I don't have any problems finding it again.

33 years ago doesn't seem that long ago, but I guess it is.
Because pinned and dovetailed is old school and how I've done numerous front sights over the years.
I built a custom SVT 45 for my Vet. $2k worth of parts. When it was put together, he took it to the range and shot it. It strung the shots horizontally. He called me. I told him to drop by. He did and we went down to my shop, where I pulled out the correct sized pin punch, hit the pin one time and I could feel it drop into place.
Handed him his gun back and told him to try it again. He called me that evening and said everything was exactly as he had hoped/expected from this pistol.
I do understand on many different levels.

looking around to buy my first P7 variant. Those pictures and other info on this board is incredibly helpful. I'm sure I'll end up with at least 2 before long. One of anything is never enough.
BTW, my first post!
