Right up there but rare enough but unless the seller is an FFL selling from his inventory it's not NIB and technically ineligible for warranty to the buyer. Here's my track:

Heckler & Koch P7 M8
4 in Bbl Pistol in 9 mm 4.13 in Bbl. Bluebook of Gun Values (32nd Edition) indicates between $975 in 95% condition and $1500 in 100% condition for this gun. I have 262 recorded prices for this model gun from $475 to $2000 over a period of 8 Yrs 7 Mos ending April 25, 2012. The average price as of that date was $1276. No refurbs, no refinishes, regular sights. Adjusted to two magazines. All represented as 95% or better. No distinction for import location or engineering revision, if any, no special editions, no distinctions for box, papers, tools. Current or last MSRP is $1515

Here's an out of date chart from the data:

.


There are five prices above $1700, two above $1900. The most recent of these five was during February 2012 ($1820) with the others from late June 2010 and Summer 2011. The "Mint" or "As New In Box" probably makes the price OK for a safe queen but, IMO, pretty dear for a shooter. But if it's what you want and you have the bux, I'd say go for it. I'd wager you wouldn't lose any money if you should decide to sell it later and keep in could condition. If H&K honors the warranty, should you need it, you might come out ahead at the prices for parts these days.

How's that for an answer P7KING? I tip my hat to 5wire, obviously a quite knowledgeable fellow P7 enthusiast.
P7King is going to add another to crown jewells? Nice!

Well what can I say but WoW! thanks a heap. I just sold mine NIB P7M8 that I had purchased from the same dealer right before they stopped production and it stood me $1500 with tax included. I just sold it for $1700 never fired and all original box and papers. The slide said Heckler and Koch made in Germany nothing else. It wasn't the same as the usual suspects. Anyone ever see one of those? It was the only one I ever saw. I'm sure the last run was just like that. They probably did that to cut cost or something. Hey thanks again guys.

I just sold an unfired, perfect condition Chantilly to a Las Vegas collector for $1650. I believe that is right in the ballpark for current market value. $1775 is a bit of a stretch, and it's too bad you're getting stuck with paying sales tax. If you're laying awake at night thinking about it, buy it. But if you have the patience to wait, you could probably save yourself $200-300+ (out of state for a better price and no sales tax).

I just bought it. I sold mine for $1700 to a collector but it wasn't the fat trigger one. It was one of the last runs before it stopped being made. Not the one of 500 or any other special runs. Just one of the last ones off the line prior to them making the last of the batch marked one of 500. The slide marking was different. It said Heckler & Koch made in Germany nothing else. Not the usual GmbH 9mm etc. marking. I was keeping it because of the marking but hell I rather have this one I just got. It is brand spanking new with all the tools and papers. Real nice addition to my collection. It's a safe queen. It did suck paying the tax on it but he'll I made money on mine so it just went to the Feds. I had paid $1500 when I bought mine and sold it for $1700. This one cost me $1900 out the door so it really stands me $1700. Which is about right according to the chart. Man I hate selling my stuff. It kills me. I just like adding and adding. Oh well se la vie. As the saying goes. Man does it hurt.

I may need a transfusion from another one of my H&K comrades. I'm bleeding out.

Bob,

Is there a site from which to get the information (and other firearms) in your graph??? :eek:

Tony
No there isn't, Tony, I just post charts if I happen to have a track on the model if it comes up in a thread. What might you be looking for?
