    I am interested in getting an HK P2000. What should I know about it?

    I know I want just the HK P2000 and not the P2000 SK. I also know that I want the V3 since this is the double action / single action and not just double action only. I also want a 9mm and not .40.

    Anything else to keep in mind?

    Mine is an LEM in .40. Boringly reliable. You’ll be happy with it.

    I carried a LEM P2000 in .40 on duty for over 10 years. Boringly reliable is spot on. To spite sand and grit, dirty or clean, I fired thousands of rounds and do not recall EVER having a single malfunction. I’m retired now and though I prefer Glocks for carry, I am looking for a used one in .40 with the LEM trigger to go with my LEM USPc.

    I’ll be picking up a used v3 in .40 next week. Have been looking for another pistol in .40 since I have a surplus of ammo after I got rid of my Glock 23. From what I could tell, I’m really going to enjoy it. The trigger was nice, fit and finish was everything I’ve always heard that HK was. And for $355 out the door with three mags, I think it’s a pretty good deal.

    HK triggers sometimes feel like there is no way you can shoot them accurately but the sum of the parts come together when you shoot one and the result is an easy to shoot well handgun.

    I'm very interested in the LEM system. Looks like a good blend of hammer and striker. I do prefer a consistent trigger pull.

    Excellent pistol.
    The SA\DA can be cleaned up, and Bruce Grey sells a Short Reset kit.
    You really can not go wrong with the p2000, it is kind of over shadowed by the USP and P30.

    I have one in 40 w/LEM and love it.

    Whoever got one for $355 is stealing it.

    The main draw for me is the flatness of it.

    Ok so what kind of variants are out there and which one should I end up with? What is the LEM trigger?

    I want 9mm and V3 so I have DA / SA and not DA only. What else should I be looking for?

    I've had a P2000 V3 (DA/SA) 9mm for over 10 yrs now and it is one of my favorite handguns. As others have said, it is accurate and has been 100% reliable. It's ergonomics are noticeably better (for me anyway) than the USPc which I tried first. While it is not my primary carry, it is one that I would again with no hesitation. I personally believe it is (has been) one of the most underrated pistols of the DA/SA crowd. My trigger is around 9#s in DA mode (a little heavy and somewhat long like typical DAs, but predictable and easily mastered) - SA is around 4.75#s and is quite sweet.

    I saw it at my local store while picking up another purchase last Friday, couldn’t walk out of there without putting it on layaway. Always check the used section

    The P2000 is likely the most under rated HK handguns out there. Of course all HK handguns are great and well designed. Can't go wrong with one.

    Yeah I tend to think of very high prices when I heard the word HK, but this one is very reasonable for how nice it is. Also, the ergonomics look great. It's like a little USP.

    I carried a P2000 LEM on and off duty for 8 years. Thousands of rounds with no probs. I’d have bought if I could have when I retired. I managed to get a USPc LEM through employee purchase plan years ago. Love it.
