Our Assessment: After the 1972 Munich Olympics Massacre, the West German Police decided that it was time to replace the .32 Auto Walthers that they were issued to something with a little more power. Size, weight and power requirements were released as well as a requirement that the new pistol be ambidextrous, safe to carry with a chambered round and able to be employed immediately after drawing. Three pistols were selected including the unique HK offering, the P7. The P7 meets all the requirements and makes the gun safe to carry with a chambered round and yet immediately useable with a unique squeeze-cocking mechanism which cocks the pistol when the paddle on the frontstrap is gripped. This pistol was made in 1981, before the M8 and M13 designations were used and before the polymer heat shield was added to the trigger guard. The polygonal rifling is still well defined with no erosion and the pistol has a superb trigger pull that is initiated by squeezing the fore grip of the grip frame. Its blue finish has only very light handling marks and it appears this pistol was used seldom if at all. Please see our pictures and good luck!
