OK...gonna shake up the thread...hopefully. Sad this platform has fallen off...
Sent this to James at Teufelshund Tactical:
I was shooting a recent match with my RTB P7M13, I had a problem with my high grip S/H thumb pressing the high profile takedown button during firing and either interrupting slide operation or, at one point, causing me to completely launch the slide off my frame during a stage.
Q: How far will a P7 recoil spring launch its slide downrange?
A: About 8 feet or so...into the dirt...
Can you provide, or let me know where I can find a low profile (I consider 'standard') takedown button? This is the only one of my six P7s that have this. Second, the RTB is my backup gun for my every-match shooter that I've got about 7800 rounds thru. What is the recommended rebuild point for the venerable M13?

Update: Purchased a takedown button from HKParts.com on the off-chance it was a low profile and it was just what the doctor ordered!...Perfect fit and nice, low-profile presentation. Just now ordered another couple to outfit my safe queens...

A gun guy I know recently and innocently asked if I still had my P7s. I smiled, said yes, and that they weren't for sale. He changed the subject. :-)

In a particularly sloppy shotgun class many moons ago, I too fell victim to the tap-rack slide launching down range into a murky puddle! The P7 haters rejoiced that day and still celebrate the event at my expense. That was my last day of a high profile takedown button on a P7! cheers

Same thing happened to me during a defensive pistol class with my M8. Slide landed about 8 feet away sights down on concrete. Buggered up my fiber optic front sight. Please link to the low profile button you bought.

As a owner of a P7M13 and a P7M8 I sure don't use them for pistol matches. I believe in my S&W Mod. 52 wad cutter.

Serious shooting at matches. The P7's rest in the safe where they belong !!

Well now, it depends on the type of match, doesn't it? I've used a P7M8 in IDPA matches and done well, but wouldn't bother taking one to a bullseye or silhouette match. Likewise, I had two S&W 52s and wouldn't have let one near anything but a bullseye match.

I have set aside a few for pistol matches but most of the ones I have reside in a safe far away from me.

Hi All!!
https://hkparts.net/product/p7m13-p7m10-slide-removal-button-retaining-catch-p15432.htm/ $30
I bought one to be pleasantly surprised it was a low profile button.
A quick survey found that a majority of my M13s have high profile buttons.
My well-used shooter never did so I thought nothing of it.
I bought a couple more to replace the others.
I too have a shooter and a backup, and then the safe queens.
