New P30SK

New P30SK. The barrel length is not correct on the HK website. The barrel should be approximately 3.20".
I will wait on the VP9SK which has a better trigger.

Looking forward to handling one of those to see if the grip feels too short. That would be a pretty cool piece in 357 Sig especially.

The LEM version might interest me.

I'm interested! If it was a VP9SK it would be a must buy.

It's about time. I would have thought it would have been out a couple years ago.

Nice to see the price point has come down a bit. I'll patiently wait for a VP9SK.

I can't see this working out very well, especially as rigged in the promotional images. The S model P30's were awful, the ambi thumb safeties pushing the hand down into the frame due to their width and placement, which coupled with the P30's high bore axis was a very bad thing. I can't imagine it being better with even less grip frame to glop on to!

A chopped and bobbed P30 can't be a pleasurable shooting experience.

It seems like HK should have come out with this several years ago if ever at all, because I don't see it as offering much more than the P2000SK, while being much less ideal than the anticipated VP9SK. Perhaps the P224 drove HK to offer a P30SK.

It's probably an awesome gun, as I do really like my P30. However, I already have a P2000SK.

Add me to this list that will pass, and is eagerly awaiting a VP9SK.

I actually prefer the look of the 2000sk.
I've never shot a 30, but never felt the need to either after purchasing a 2000sk.

The more I think of it, the more I wonder. From what I've read, HK has been on some hard times financially. Will there be a big market for this gun? Sure the P30 is great, but what kind of market will you have for this when 1. the VP9 is your current hot item and 2. they are competing with themselves (the P2000SK)?

I have been kicking around a new purchase,
I will admit, a VPsk would move to the top of the list quite quickly.

I am somewhat of a horse trader when it comes to pistols,
I keep a G19C, a PM9, a S&W 642, a SP101, and a p2000sk.

I have owned quite a few others, mostly new models that come out, but most end up being sold to fund the next new thing.
What I would really like to find, is a DA/SA in a size between a PM9, and a Walther PPS......that is my holy grail.

Obviously everything I keep is pretty much a "carry" gun. I understand that the fit and finish of H&K is superb, but if I may ask, what makes the P30 that much better than say a P2000??

I ask this completely sincere, I may be more of a lurker here, but it isn't hard to figure out, around here, you are pretty much the uber pistolo aficionado in these parts..

I was talking about a standard P30. I'm not a huge fan of subcompacts. Once I have my carry guns, I just don't see the point in buying many of them.

I like stuff that is fun to shoot at the range.

I don't really think so. The CCW market is really into single stack striker guns these days. If the P2000SK were flying off the shelves, I could see releasing this update, but as it stands, a VP9SK or a new single stack offering seems like it would have been more fruitful.

On the plus side, the pricing I've seen for these appears to be pretty reasonable.

Not every pistolero wants a light trigger pull striker fired pistol. There are many dinosaurs like myself who love, choose, and shoot very well traditional DA/SA pistols. The P30SK will sell just fine. Bill

I hope you're right. I just figured all those dinosaurs would already have a P2000SK.

I'm 40, guess I'm in denial about being a dinosaur

My thing is, even though I own light trigger striker guns,
my preferred summer carry is an appendix holster at about 1 O'clock.
I just struggle with having a light pull, and no safety, pointed at my femoral.
When I carry at 4 o'clock, it just doesn't seem so intimidating.

I know, I know, good retention and no pocket pool, but I just cant feel comfortable. Up front, its Kahr trigger, revolver, or DA/SA

Regards

Ordered one today. LGS will have both LEM and DA/SA triggers in...I requested no manual safety.

Thanks for posting the link yesterday. When I saw it after I got home from work, I was beside myself and couldn't wait to call them up today.

Do I need the SK? Probably not.
Am I getting one? Definitely!
