I don't know how it happened but this pistol followed me home today from my LGS. I am in need of a few nickel magazines. If anyone out there have any for sale, please let me know. It only came with 1. Also, what's a fair price for the nickel plate P7? I got it for just under $?k out the door.

Yeah - im pretty happy about it. I went to the LGS to buy small pistol primers and walk out with it. Well, i don't have it in hand as of yet, it has to be ship to the store in my State, i live on a border State. Nonetheless, it's paid in full and small primers be damned; also, they did not have any small primers BTW.

A date code and partial serial number should confirm you've got yourself a real nickle M8.
The real nickel mags are hard to come by. Iirc they only made enough for the nickle pistols that run.

Is there a database we can look at how to find if a nickel P7 is factory finished? I also have a nickel P7, but I am almost certain it is not factory.

dohc, are you sure it's not hard chrome? Some shooters used hard chrome to refinish the P7

Maybe hard chromed, not sure. My SN is a 5 digit number. On the slide, it says 48xxx Nds 11/82 DE.On the other side, it says Heckler & Koch GMBH Oberndorf/N Made in Germany.

It wasn’t represented as a factory nickel finish, so calling it a “fake” seems rather excessive.
Well, well, well, I never actually said that was a fake, did I? The very fact that the add made no mention with regard to the finish not being original, is another example of a dishonest seller playing “catch me if you can.”

Once I get the pistol in my hands again, I will send additional pictures. It had to be sent to a gun store in my State. Sometime next week for sure. I cant wait.
