Love this pistol! Current German military side arm and ya gotta love the price At Arms Unlimited!!!
Gun is great. Your importer can learn about a better place to put their import mark. Lol
This is a very interesting pistol with close tie to USP.
Missed getting a P8 back around 2000, jumped on the P8A1 when I seen it on AU, the import markings are on the slide below the extractor and hardly noticeable… no regrets here, great collector piece.
The P8A1’s safety one of the reasons I like it over other HKs. When the safety is on, the safety lever is in the way of where I put my thumb and it is hard to grip the gun. When the safety is off in the upward position and out of the way, I grip the gun correctly. If I lower the hammer with the safety lever, the gun goes automatically to safe. Many people don’t like it being different or opposite from a 1911, but it works for me.
I’ve been looking for one of these for 12 years since first shooting one in Germany. Glad to finally have found one. One of the best shooting guns ive had the pleasure of owning.
I was trained on this gun during my military time and couldn’t believe that AU had them. Ordered, had it shipped to my dealer and picked it up today. Amazing gun, very accurate and just plain beautiful. Thank you AU this was an amazing experience especially for a first time online gun buyer.
It's an HK pistol, it works. Just shot it with a surplus bundeswher holster in challenge to great effect. I do wish they didn't engrave the import mark directly on the right side of the slide. Other p8a1 imports engraved it on the metal serial plate on the frame. Another place could be on the bottom of the slide itself. The engraving is professional and good quality, but in a lazy place in my opinion.
100% satisfied with this transaction. Ordered on a Saturday, shipped Monday and arrived Wednesday at the cheapest shipping option. NV to OH. Great price for a great piece. First time customer and will be back. Thank you.
