Our Assessment: From http://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/2015/03/26/heckler-koch-p7m13/ “For many collectors the P7 is a sought after example of HK’s design prowess. At seven inches long, five inches tall, an inch and a quarter wide, and weighing almost two pounds, the P7M13 is a rare version of the P7 which some consider to be the penultimate of the series. Originally designed as a higher capacity P7, the M13 variant utilizes a double-stack magazine capable of holding thirteen rounds of 9mmammunition. For those unfamiliar with the P7 design, the pistol is based on the Barnitzke system, a gas-retarded blowback system that utilizes bleed-off gases from each round fired to drive an operating rod which cycles the slide. In many ways this system is similar to modern piston driven rifles (AK and AR variants) but in other ways the system is unique all to itself.” This item is in Excellent condition, retaining about 93% of its metal finish, showing only a few minor cosmetic marks on the high strength polymer grip panels. The polygonal rifling is highly pronounced with no erosion and the pistol has a superb trigger pull that is initiated by squeezing the fore grip of the grip frame. Four 13-round magazines are included (we CANNOT be sold to California residents or residents of states with high capacity magazine laws) along with a nice soft zip-up case that has three magazine pouches. In all, it would be very difficult to find a tougher, smoother and more elegant duty or self defense pistol. Please see our pictures and good luck.
