Here is an example of the variations, without the extra police info:


An early Mod. PSP gun for the civilian market, with date code and proof mark.


An early P7 for the military, with only BWB proof (it looks like Pixa had had a few that afternoon at lunch before stamping the proof on the frame!).

Beautiful gun!

I should add that I had mine MPe'ed by Robar and had the internals chromed as well.

I was seeing rust even after one day in my IWB holster.

It's not origional now but I don't care because it's a carry gun and it's never going to be for sale.

I recall reading somewhere that the magazine date codes are a little different than those used on arms but I can't recall in what way. I never paid too much attention to the date codes on mags.
Yes, mags receive a 'J' stamp while no handguns will. Most P7s I've seen do not have matching date mags, and in certain years would obviously be impossible.

As far as I have ever seen (10-12 examples) the mags for the Mod. PSP guns (001 - 239) have no date codes or markings of any kind.

I think this is what Elvis is talking about

IR =1993
IE=1994
IS=1995
IK=1996
IO=1997
ID=1998
II=1999
OR=2000
NP=2001
AC=2002 (assumption)
AD=2003 (assumption)
AE=2004 (assumption)
AF=2005 (assumption)
AG=2006 (assumption)
AH=2007 (assumption)
AI=2008 (assumption

This (and no assumption on AC-AI, if that is one of my really, old lists :wink:), and for 1976+, J = 9 for parts/K = 9 on receivers!!! :biggrin:

The first 239 guns, the Mod. PSP guns, took different mags. A standard P7 Mag will not fit in a Mod. PSP, like #191 pictured earlier in this thread. The Mod. PSP mags were a bit thinner as well as the obvious cosmetic differences.



The P7M7's mags don't have any markings or date codes.

Who says I simply haven't written up the report yet? :cool:

These are the 239 guns I'm talking about. They use different mags from all the other standard P7s.

Where did this come from? I don't know how can it be correct.
On my exampe: my IE coded P7M8(1984) came with 2 mags - Ie and ID. Did my mags travel in time?))
I'm 99.9% sure they are original mags...

No offense, but how could you be at all sure that either mag was original? It seems unlikely to me that a pistol would have come from the factory with mags having different date codes.
