The "small letter" Sterling P7M8 looks like it was phosphate coated or at least doesn't have the polishing I've always seen on other P7M8s. Maybe just my old computer but is this really new as advertised (by the factory) or was work done afterward?

Could it be an overrun that was originally scheduled for foreign purchase?

Is it factory or aftermarket? If factory, how many of these did the factory produce for sale.

It's hard to tell from the unsharp pix being lit from either side with different intensities of light, check the shadows. All you need to make the finish look a bit wonky. Everything that would come with a new pistol is there and it looks pretty good to me. I have an AC (2002) Sterling that I bought new and an II (1988) Chantilly in almost perfect condition.

The current price doesn't surprise me, either. Here's my track on that:

Heckler & Koch P7M8 4.13" Bbl Pistol in 9x19. Blue Book of Gun Values (39th Edition) indicates between $1750 in 95% condition and $2250 in 100% condition for this gun. I have 435 recorded prices for this model gun from $525 to $6969 over a period of 16 Yrs 2 Mos ending December 10, 2019. The average price as of that date was $1594. No refurbs, no refinishes, regular sights. Adjusted to two magazines. All represented as 95% or better. No distinction for import location or engineering revision, if any, no special editions, no distinctions for box, papers, tools. Current or last MSRP is $1515. The last 80 prices I have for this model since 01/01/2019 range from $916 to $6974 averaging $2382.

Chantilly:
