Have decided now is as good as time as any to sell a few of the guns I have accumulated over the years - starting with those I rarely if ever shoot. Will try to post an ad here - the mechanics of this forum are new to me so please be patient if I mess up with the pictures or protocols.
First up is my HK P7 M8 in 9mm. I bought this gun "new" back in the early 90s and its sat in my safe pretty much the entire time. The reason I say "new" is that its one of the West German police trade ins that were refurbished by HK to like new and put on the market in a new box As such it doesn't garner the full premium many P7s do nowadays, but its still a genuine HK P7 in nice shape and still rare as hens teeth. It comes with the original box with matching serial numbers, original brush and scraper, original manual, and the 2 original mags. The box is flawless. The manual has some oil stains on it from setting on top of the gun in the case. The gun itself has a slight mark near the muzzle on one side where it sat on the hard plastic divider in the box for 20 years, plus it has a slight discoloring in the bluing on the rear of the slide, which is typical for these WG trade ins as they reblued them in kind of a funky plum color. If you are unfamiliar with the P7 its a really cool gun. It utilizes a squeeze cocker type action, along with a delayed gas blowback, and a fixed barrel. All of this combines to make the gun extremely accurate and soft shooting, although being an all steel handgun its a little heavy compared to something like a Glock.
The price is $1600 face to face within reasonable driving distance to Wilson County, and must have TN HCP and do the bill of sale thing. Alternatively the price is $1635 (USPS money order) plus actual shipping costs to ship from my FFL to yours.
Now, hopefully I can figure out the picture posting thing....
I got this about 5 years ago from my uncle. He got it sometime in the 40's that's all I know about the history of it.
From the S/N I would say it was made sometime in mid 1885.
I would say it has about 95%+ of the nickel still on it and the barrel looks great for something this old.
I'm asking $600 and that is because the barrel looks better than any one of these I have ever seen.
