Suppressing HK P7 pistol

 Has anyone successfully suppressed P7? How did the balance and the functioning work out? What was the cost of the whe process, not counting the suppressor itself?

HK traditional loading method. Should still work, no?

P7 с гушаком наблюдал. Глушитель родной, вальтеровского типа - без сепараторов, с параболическими отражателями. Работало, правда не с любым патроном. Баланс получился отварительнейший.
П.С. Фото патрона в магазине порадовало :)

I was wondering if that was intentional...

You'll put your eye out!

Why is the round in the magazine backwards?

Its an homage.

I'd been wondering the same thing...

And the P7M13SD:

Oh, I thought you meant an HK P7 with a really, REALLY big mag for suppressive fire. :-D

ext_243029: I've heard rumors....

... that they aren't particularly quiet due to blowby in the piston system. No personal experience, though.

Если так патроны заряжать - то да, звука выстрела будет не слышно :-)

Should be nice & quiet as long as you stick to HK's traditional loading.

The most difficult thing about suppressing one of these is the barrel. Finding a factory made extended threaded barrel is quite the chore. Having one made is problematic. Otherwise, quite fun!

FWIW, Shannon says that replacing the barrels in those things is a pain in the buttocks.

Given the effort it would take, I probably wouldn't bother.

I've never seen one, save pictures. But in addition to the trouble of getting a barrel and getting it pressed into the frame, I gotta think it's going to make getting the slide on and off over that extended fixed barrel quite a pain as well.

I woulnd't risk messing up such a stunning example of German engineering. I'd buy a drop in barrel for something else.

I've heard that its a bad idea. You need a press to replace the barrel, if you can find one. As mentioned before the gas blowback is fairly loud as well. Of course if you have one sitting around and just have to do it it looks really neat.

Nice magazine. ;-)

Were I going to do anything custom with a p7 I would first contact Bruce Gray at http://grayguns.com/ He likely has more experience smithing and customizing p7 pistols than the next 5 guys combined . From what i have read the p7 design does not suppress well , but it would have a hell of a " wow factor " visually .

Я бы так над магазином Р-7 не издевался.

(Anonymous): I had a P7 once

it was OK, but I had a chance to sell it for half again what I'd paid for it. It's possible, just problematical, and with so many 9mm pistols out there, there's a serious 'Why' factor in there!

It would be easier to get a pistol with a drop-in barrel, Or I could find one already threaded easier than the degree and cost of getting the P7 suppressed.

Major Malfunction is a SOT/NFA Dealer in the central Oklahoma area. While I have had no dealings with him I have heard many great things about his business and the couple of times I have traded e-mails with him the man has been quite helpful. He may be a good source of information.

I'd second Farmdad's recommendation to talk to Bruce at Gray Guns about it. The man is a genius.

А в чем прикол такого заряжания? Задом наперед
