Just picked up my second P7. My first was stamped 82 - original bluing (shiny stampings). This new one has a plumb slide.
Now I've checked out the forum and read a bunch of threads and as far as I can tell, the answer is we don't really know what's up with these plumb slides. I found some interesting signs on the gun - took some photos.
The gun's stamping is dark- not shiny like stamping that would have been done after the original bluing.
The gun is stamped as an 86 but the '6' is in a bigger font than the rest of the stamping - clearly added at a later time.
The plum bluing (which is quite attractive) seems to end at the back of the gun (rather sloppily) right before the striker. Bluing that looks more like my "82" psp seems to be what continues to the striker.
Finally, it's an HKI Trussville police trade in. But couldn't have been refinished right before importing because it does show some holster wear.
So was it refinished? And when? By whom? It keeps me up nights... sooo, why won't this thing let my upload my photos? Admin, what's up with my permissions? A man disappears for a few months and you revoke all his privileges? Not cool ;)

If it is plumb and level then it shoots straighter! :wink:

The slide looks to have been re-finished. When or by who ?

Why do you think so? Looks like an honest-to-goodness plum slide NDS trade-in to me.
Because the slide and frame markings do not match.

Look at the picture above. They match.

Deuce is right - the stampings on the "plum" slide are dark- would suggest they were blued over. Tis part of the mystery.
