Which "grade" P7 is it? "A" grade or "B" grade?

Also, is it an "H&K Trussville" imported gun or one of the other importers?

Stainless Single Actions Rule




Two of my favorites...a New Model Blackhawk .357, 4 5/8" barrel, and custom wood grips and a Super Blackhawk .44, 7.5" barrel, Leupold 2x, and custom elk grips.

Both are primarily used at the range, however, I have taken the SBH .44 deer hunting the last two years, but was unsuccessful.

Thanks for doing the research. I'm still leaning towards the ones at HK Specialist like you are. There is one at Gander Mountain in Davenport but it is in the $750 range IIRC.

I'm also a handgun n00b.


Here is the link if anyone is curious.

Guy didn't say. Just "95%". Wouldn't provide pics, so I guess I wouldn't be surprised if it is from the same batch as HK Specialists

I don't know if Grade is necessarily the best indicator of condition, as it seems to be somewhat arbitrary. My "C" grade is as nice as the "A" grade I saw at my local GS, and much better than his "C" grade, which had obviously had the slide milled. The biggest difference I've seen is simply finish wear, and they're easily refinished for those who want a gun that looks new.

I may ask him for pics tomorrow and then let you decide if it's in better shape than yours. The question I have, is the P7 an okay pistol for a handgun noob? It would basically be my learner pistol...
I think a P7 is a perfect first pistol. The squeeze-cocker makes it about as idiot proof as it can get, and it's exceptionally easy to take down and clean. It's also incredibly accurate and has little recoil, but rewards good technique with great results. It's not a forgiving gun in the sense of my P30L, which anyone can shoot well, but I find that shooting with the P7 really improves my shooting with my other guns. It will make you a better shooter, and most of all it's really fun to shoot. It also attracts a lot of attention from gun guys at the range who are familiar with it.

Right. But there is a difference in price.

For example, we sold the "A" grade versions for roughly $599 and the "B" grade versions for $499.

Also I have found that finish isn't always the reason for a lower grade.

That's a big difference. What exactly differentiates "A" grade from "B" grade?

Why do you need a permit to acquire?

Iowa state law. I can buy a rifle, but the county Sheriff has to make sure I'm a law abiding citizen before I can get a handgun. I don't really know what I want so I just got the permit in case I get that HK P7 I'm drooling over.

CCW laws are also different in Iowa. Each county Sheriff kind of makes the rules and you need a pretty good reason before they will let you from what I can understand.

Check this out if you are interested.

Overall condition of the parts and piston.

Ever cracked one of those things open? It's like a wristwatch.

In love the look of the stainless single action.

I am waiting to find a .22 single action in stainless for my GF.

Alejo...attached is a picture of my Ruger .22 Bearcat in stainless. It is a kit gun, so overall dimensions are smaller than that of a standard sized gun. I bought it so I could take my then 12 yr old daughter shooting with me. She learned all about gun safety with this gun and became fairly proficient at 7 yards. I haven't taken her out in while....good idea for this weekend.
