While catching up on our custom-gun backlog, we’ve been finishing a number of H&K P7 projects lately. We’ve had requests to post some pics of our current P7 work, so with your indulgence here’s a few snapshots of an M8 that Torie and I just completed for a good and patient customer from Ohio.
This pistol has our beavertail conversion, 30LPI hand checkering, a bit of magazine well beveling, action work with an over-travel stop and modest reset reduction, Meprolight night sights, and is finished in SuperBlack.
As shown, these can be checkered but it’s far from easy, requiring more of a graving style and some specialized stuff to work with. After 35 years of this work you wouldn’t like my hands and elbows, unless you were my orthopedic surgeon.
