Hi guys last week I traded a rifle I had for a P7 ,haven't been to the range yet but looking forward soon. I did have a couple questions first, I read a post somewhere on line where someone said not to use +P or +P+ ammo apparently this guy was a police officer and he said one of the officers was using +P at the firing range and the slide flew off and hit him in the chest he claims they do not use +P ammo anymore. So before I go out and buy some ammo was wondering is this true. Also about the grading I have read where there are several grades A,B,C ,on my cardboard original box the bar code reads "P7PSP 9MM VG-EXC BOTTOM", does anyone know if that is the grade and if so what letter category would this fall in? This pistol is from Trussville AL Ser. # 377xx.Thanks.

VG-Exc...I think that means very
good - to excellent. As for the +P ammo, try the search function of the forum. That's not a [email protected] answer. That will be the quick way to find the answer to your question. Otherwise, hang out here till the P7 experts come by...which there are several around.

Oh, by the way, awesome pistol that you have acquired!

The P7 was designed around the 124gr. NATO round which is just about a +P round. Based on my reading on this board I've not seen many problems with +P rounds. My own experience is about 1000 or so Winchester Ranger NATO 124gr. rounds thru all my P7's without any malfunctions.

I, along with many others will tell you that anything heavier (147gr.) will not function reliably in the gun.

There's a plethora of different threads in the archives (some of them entertainingly heated) discussing this very subject.

Happy reading!
