The P9 pistol, caliber 9 mm Parabellum, was launched in 1970 by the German company Heckler & Koch. Later, thinking in foreign markets, models were added .45 ACP and 7.65 mm Parabellum. The gun is very striking, technologically, mainly due to roll closure system and polygonal barrel. Another notable feature is the lever mounted on the left side of the frame, behind the arc guard. Due to its placement, this lever can be easily confused with the detent on the charger, instead, is located in the lower part of the handle. Mounted lever cocking mechanism serves as a trigger system. The gun can be fired in double action mode, but when riding the cocking lever can shoot well, though with simple action for the first shot. P9 The first model was a single action only pistol, but was quickly replaced by a P9S, double action model. The added S is short for the German word Spann-Abzug (double action).

In 1973, he launched the third variant, the P9S Sport, with an elongated barrel on it goes a counterweight sleeve, with focus placed at the end of the muzzle. This sporty model is scalable up. The extractor doubles as a charging indicator, if you have a cartridge in the chamber of the barrel. When the system is installed, a pointer protruding from the rear of the slide. In 1981, Heckler & Koch launched an entirely new type of gun: the PSP, Police Self-Loading Pistol or autoloading pistol to the police, which would soon be known as the P7. This gun was introduced many important technical innovations, at least for the time. For starters, the gun had a polygonal barrel. Instead of grooves, the canyon has many drawing piquitos forming a slightly twisted, to print a rotation to the passage of the bullet. Furthermore, the gun has a handle that tightens mounted in place of the trigger system more usual dual or single action.

Then, the firing pin is tight and the trigger can be released. The gun has a delayed closing system by the gases. No guarantor of the slide if the slide is not open after the last shot. To close the slide back pressure must be mounted mechanism. The P7-K3 is a variant of Q7 sports a special model, for which replacement kits available in calibers .22 LR, .25 ACP (6.35 mm), .32 ACP (7.65 mm) and .380 ACP (9 mm short). The Heckler & Koch P7-M8 is, in large part, a variant of the P7 pistol. In P7 the pawl charger was placed in the bottom of the handle. This raised objections from civil market users. That boot latch at the heel of the grip is not very practical for shooting fast charger changes. The P7-M8 has a boot latch on the left side of the frame, behind the trigger guard bow. Other specifications are identical to those of the former P7. The gun is also manufactured in caliber 9×21 mm, for the countries where they are not permitted to use the gauges civil or military officers, such as Italy and part of Central America.

The Heckler & Koch P7-M13 derived from the P7-M8 and was designed especially for tests that the army of the United States made to replace the old pistol Colt 1911 A-1 Army. It’s a 13-gun cartridges, with surety of ambidextrous magazine behind the trigger guard. Other technical details are the same as in the P7-M8. The P7-M13 failed to be admitted as gun regulation in the United States, so the Heckler & Koch had to try the civilian market. For this reason, the company also made a version of caliber .40 S & W, called the P7-M10. The P7-M10 is built more solidly, by its heavier gauge. Strangely, no M10 polygonal barrel but the conventional grooves in the bore. Due to some miscalculations, among other models, for example, in the military assault rifle G-ll with caseless ammunition, this German company ended up having financial difficulties in 1990. In March 1991, the company was taken over by the British Royal Ordnance, a subsidiary of conglomerate Aerospace companies.

Overlooking competitiveness, HK wanted to design a modern gun model, but lacked the necessary financial resources. In the summer of 1991, the company received an order from the Pentagon for development. The Pentagon wanted a special pistol .45 ACP for special units of the army, navy and air force and for SOCOM (Special Operations Command). The SOCOM pistol can be equipped modular, if you will, of a Iaser look, a look of infrared or white light and muffler. In 1994, the HK launched a civilian model, derived from this design SOCOM, the USP (Universal Selbstlade Pistole = Universal autoloading pistol). Due to the assistance extended by the United States for its development, the gun is nicknamed Pistol United States.
