I like the P7's; as I'm sure everyone here does, I am not however very knowledgeable on the subject of them. I see P7M8's and P7M13's and so on, but for someone with zero experience with them, this means nothing.

I figure it couldn't hurt to have a single thread for someone knowledgeable to explain the differences in the types of P7's that are available out there. As I'm sure I'm not the only one who hasn't a clue, but would like to learn.

All the p series pistols work the same, the number after the m just refers to the amount of rds the mag holds. Ie p7m13 holds 13 rds. The p7 and P7m8 are virtually the same other than different mag releases and trigger guard. The p7m10 was also made in 40sw, but few were made. They are exceptional pistols and great for concealed carry. There are tons of vids about them on YouTube, as far as how they work and stuff.

Streetwolf, the HKP7 is one of my favorite pistols. I like the combination of the safe squeeze-cocker mechanism, fixed-barrel, terrific single-action, which adds to safety and accuracy. Thin profile for CCW. Thumbs up on all of the above info provided by other forum members. I got a lot of info also from the Cult of the P7 - Park Cities Tactical.
