    I love my glocks. I carried a 19 for 3 years and I've had a 26, 17, and 34. I made the mistake of selling my 26,19 and 17 to fund another project so I tried carrying the 34 for a while. After realizing it was too big to carry everyday, I decided to begin looking for a new compact for CCW. My search led me to the HK P-2000. It has a very reIasonable DA first shot and a crisp SA trigger break. The ergonomics are excellent and overall fit and finish more than justifies the slightly higher price range. I ran some drills this afternn (100+ rds.) and found that this thing groups just as well as my G34 which is longer by more or less 2 inches. Double tap controllability is slightly better than the G19 and the single action trigger really helps with my splits and tapping groups. My only gripe is the limited mag capacity (only 13rds.) but this is a minor issue often resolved by a quick mag change. Oh yeah, mags cost a fortune but I got a decent deal from HKTactical so no worries!

    There are several trigger variants for the P2000. The one I got is the DA/SA with decocker variant (V3). I really like the decocker function but the variant getting the most attention is the LEM and CDA. Both function much like the Glock trigger and there are also no external safeies.

    Here's what came in the case:
    - unit
    - mags
    - manual
    - factory test target (nice touch for a production pistol)
    - complete cleaning kit

    All in all, I really like this small pistol. This will be my primary carry as soon as I go through at least 400 rounds more to test reliability. I'm also prepping to shoot my new HK in the next IDPA match.

    So if anyone is looking for an excellent CCW gun, I highly recommend the P2k. I thought I would never have a better CCW gun than the G19. I thought wrong.

    Hanep ka pare. Side to side comparison with the Glock 19, which is bigger or thicker?

    Congratulations on your HK. A friend in the Philippines bought a USP in 9mm when it was introduced at a gunshow in the mid-90's for P26,000.00 (license included). I guess it was a very good deal. I tried dry-firing it, and the trigger pull is so smooth.

    Dimensions: grip is slimmer than th G19 but the slide is a bit beefier

    Disassembly: parang 1911. Pull the slide back a bit and pull out the slide stop. Barrel and guide rod are similar to Glock. I'll post pics later.

    Thanks guys!

    And congrats to Sweater nga pala! Hope to see you soon!

    Nope. HKTactical doesn't have the P30 yet. I think next in line for local release is the new HK45. I'll keep you guys updated.

    The P2000 also comes with 4 interchangeable backstraps. The P30 has back AND frontstrap inserts for more grip size options. Size difference is negligible:

    .01" less length
    .39" more height
    .20" more bbl length
    .26" longer sight radius

    THe P30 has higher capacity though (15rds vs. 13rds for the P2k) and the sights are Novak clones so that's a plus for some people. It also has a captured slide stop meaning it stays attached to the frame when you disassemble the gun. This is a plus for people with clumsy hands.

    Honestly, I don't understand where HK wanted to go with the P30. It looks like an upgrade to the still relatively new P2000 series but all of the updates border on the marginal to the downright trivial. Plus, they only released it in 9mm. It's kind of a dead end as far as marketing goes plus people are holding out on buying the P2000 just because they expect the P30 to be a worthy upgrade. Another classic example of a solution to a non-existent problem.

    I just studied the P30's specs, it's (P30) grip is a bit longer compared to the P2000. Thus, making the P2000 more concealable in my opinion. That's my only complain w/ my M&P40. The P2000's barrel is also shorter (but negligable as bikethief's experience). I had a chance to shoot the P2000 a few yrs back (it's not that new), sad to say I didn't like the DA pull. It was too heavy for me. Though, the SA is really crisp and light (almost a 1911 trigger). Overall the P2000 would do just fine (or even better) as a CCW compared to the P30.

    Congrats on your new purchase bikethief...

    Thanks chocoboy!

    The DA first shot is , admittedly, not for everyone. The only reason I felt right at home with it is because the other 2 guns in my carry rotation are a glock34 and an SP101 so I'm quite used to DA triggers. As soon as HKTactical opens in MCS, please come and visit so you can sample the LEM trigger that HK offers on it's pistols as an alternative to DA/SA.

    How "soon"? :supergrin:

    Tie-up with the OTHER HK seller? :supergrin: :supergrin: :supergrin:

    How would you describe the LEM trigger? Have read about it before but am still wondering how it feels.

    brawnless: No tie up with any other "seller." HKTactical is not only a re-seller but it's the official distributor of HK firearms in the Philippines so you can be sure we get reasonable prices from them. I'll update BOG on the progress. If you can gather enough shooters we can probably ask for a short demo from HK tactical. The LEM trigger has a long, soft (sub 2 pound pull), take-up and a crisp break.

    Isuzu: It's 10x more ergonomic than the USPc and has a much improved DA pull. It uses the same mags I think.

    bikethief:

    hope they can address the issue of parts availability. nice move too WHILE glock pistols are still scarce.

    how heavy is the take-up (or max trigger pull weight on it)? do their conversions allow for a short and light trigger pull?
