    Heckler & Koch P7K3

    Somebody hold Dan's wallet for a day or two.P7K3.jpgP7K3a.jpg

    Heckler & Koch P7K3
    In 1984 Heckler & Koch introduced a new variant of their successful P7 pistol. Unlike the P7, chambered in 9x19mm, the P7K3 can be converted to fire three different calibres: .380 ACP, .32 ACP and .22 LR. This gave rise to the pistol’s K3 or ‘Kalibers 3′ designation.

    Inspired by the earlier HK4 which could be converted to fire .380 ACP, .32 ACP, .25 ACP and .22LR. The P7K3 dispensed with the P7′s complex gas-delayed blowback system replacing it with blowback action with a sealed hydraulic recoil buffer (which can suffer wear). The buffer is only used for the centrefire calibres and is not used when the pistol is converted to fire .22LR. Production of the HK4 ended in 1984 with the P7K3 taking over its multi-calibre niche.
    Unlike the P7 the P7K3′s barrel is held in place by a barrel nut. To convert the pistol to fire .32 ACP the barrel and magazine are swapped out while conversion to .22LR requires changing the barrel, recoil spring, magazine and slide. The P7K3 is approximately 20g lighter than the P7, weighing 775g, and is 10mm shorter in overall length. Heckler & Koch ended production of the P7K3 in 1995.

        About 5000 bucks with the two caliber conversions kit. 2500 in the base .380 only

        Notorious for bad buffers, there is a replacement part finally available.

            Yeah....I've had a few in my hands but the price tag was just too much. It's on 'The List'.

            Several local shops have promised to call me if one comes in, but I haven't seen one in a local shop in many, many years. I'd settle for any caliber (if I can afford one, I won't be able to afford a multi-caliber one).

                  All P7 series prices have skyrocketed in past 10 years! Bunch of surplus German police P7 guns came in about 5 years ago (?) and collectors snatched them up for $1K and up price ranges. And yeah its on my list too...

                    It would kill you to know the surplus P7 PSPs that came in during that patch originally went for 600 and are now 1300 - 1500. Shoulda, woulda, coulda.

                        And when the California correction system sold off their surplus HK94 rifles circa 2003-4 they were 1600 bucks. Double shoulda, woulda, coulda.

                          The one I let people shoot at the Freeport Blast was purchased for $600 only a few years ago - it has an import stamp on the slide, so not so collectable, but still a good deal.
