Would love to see the ASP version of the P7 M8, Guttersnipe sight, clear grip plates, teflon-s finish, cut away trigger guard etc.

What's that? The image in my head doesn't look like safe handgun.

Not fully cut away eek Just a relief so the trigger finger has less steel to catch on, this would be great on the P7 due to it's ultra safe operation, you still have a fully enclosed guard, would have to drop the heat shield though.

Hi P7perfect;
If you've seen the ASP or played with one, you may know that Paris Theodore's GutterSnipe sight was an interesting-looking but poorly conceived concept.
Neither especially fast nor intrinsically very accurate, it was much less desireable a system than standard Patridge type sights or even "express" sights (eg, the Ashley Outdoors type).
If used on a P7, it would degrade the practical accuracy of that fine pistol considerably.

(As it happens, I consider the stock sights on the P7 to be just about perfect for "combat" sights.)

The other ideas pioneered in the ASP, such as the thinned-away right side of the trigger guard (unfair for us left-handers!), the buffalo horn translucent grip shells, and the Teflon finish, were all good enough for their time, though I've never felt that a full triggerguard was a real impediment, nor have I wished to count rounds remaining in the magazine.
Still and all, it was an intersting spook's gun!

Agreed, although I did like the Guttersnipe and target aquisition was quicker for me - liked to see more of the target through the open sight, accuracy was indeed a pile of arse although it was designed for very close quarter combat. I wouldn't like to change my P7 from it's current configuration (sorry HC'ers), just curious as to what it would look like from a ASP admirers POV. I just loved that gun. The P7 is fast overtaking that view though.
