My only complaint this this great gun is

1) difficult to let go of squeeze cocker silently (there are ways of doing it though)
2) heavy
3) gets sluggish after a few hundred rounds
4) complicated design
5) overheating (even with heat shield)


But damn its one fine gun. You could hardly miss with it points very naturally

It really does point well but I think Glocks do as well so what do I know ?

TXFlyFish, please expound. I just snagged a P7M13 day before yesterday that happened to be in a lgs, can't wait to see if it shoots as good as My duotone PSP.

I found this video about field stripping a P7 but I never saw the gun in the video.

One of the most unique firearms produced, as well as one of the finest IMHO. Another aspect of the gas-retarded system is it is "self adjusting" for varying ammo pressures - runs everything from weak target ammo to hot +P stuff reliably. I've had both the M13 and M8 varients, preferred the 13 for my mitts.

I have to say there are many things about this gun that make it a real keeper IF you can afford one.

As far as the metal frame being heavy being seen as a negative? IMO it gives the gun better accuracy and lighter recoil with faster and more accurate shooting.

I have to say they really made the fixed barrel work well when they designed the gun.

The biggest negative for me is the cost. H&K is never easy on the wallet and I am not a huge fan of thier polymer framed $1000 guns that cost much less to make than metal.
