Scooter, now it makes sense. For those readers who are not familiar with Bruce Gray, Bruce developed a long slide conversion among other mods for the P7
Bruce's work was very good and his P7 mods remain inventive and unique.
You are partially correct; the VP70 was developed as a selective fire weapon and later sold in semiautomatic form.
The P7KS13 was developed as a selective fire P series pistol with a pin-in rear wire stock.
It was never sold to anyone as both heat and reliability were issues and remains at HK to the best of my knowledge.

Looking for update info.

I am interested in Bomar sights. Anybody still out there that works on the P7.

Just throwing something out here. I may be way off, but, here it is...

At one time, I think BoMar had a "universal" model of their rear sight. I think it was meant for handgun silhouette shooters, to put on rifle-caliber single shots. As I recall, the base was not dovetailed, but just a flat-bottomed, solid block that was the same length and width as the rest of the unit. It was pretty deep, too.

IF they are available, maybe you could get a P7 dovetail cut into that base.

Here is my H&K P7M13. Before I sent it off for Robar's NP3 finish, I completely removed all of the exterior tool marks. Then I checkered the backstrap at 30 lpi. (Wow, is the frame hard!) The rear of the slide is serrated at 30 lpi. I beveled the bottom left and right edges of the slide, like the PSP is done at the factory. I also beveled the mag well, improved the top serrations of the mag releases and dehorned the front edges of the slide.

You don't see many P7's done like this. I plan to do similar mods to my PSP before having it NP3'd.

Slo cat.. checkering

Slo cat, the checkering really looks good, Did you do that by hand or use a machine. I would like to do that to mine.
Are you taking work?

The checkering was done by hand with checkering files. Unless you live in Colorado, I can't do it for you as I don't have an FFL. Thanks for the kind words. ops:

BTW, when I checker the backstrap of my P7 PSP, I will do it a 25 lpi. The 30 lpi on the P7 M13 feels just a little too smooth. :P

Best Regards, Slo cat

Slo cat, I love your taste in firearms. P7's and Seacamps. How much practice did it take to hand checker that good. If you don't mind me asking what fixture did you use? I have done some serrations on things but I never used a fixture. The serrations were cut on a sight blade and I could use a vice for a straight edge. Thanks erik
