Just acquired -through this Forum - a used P30 in 9mm. It's used, it has been shot, and am really quite open-mouthed really. This thing shoots like a crazy thing, has some form of recoil management system that I can't pinpoint but it's crazy good, fits my hand like a glove, makes unreal groups considering I had never shot it before. Shot it head to head with full size steel Beretta's and could not believe the recoil. I am left handed, and I think this a lefty dream of a gun. Love the magazine release, which is fantastic. It wasn't a novel concept for me (Walther P22) but in a combat handgun is SO welcome for a south paw. So, I am so happy. It's my first H&K, and I feel am late to a party, but the party is still on. ___________ A question: the slide lock lever in my gun is very tight on the left side, considerably looser on the right: is this normal or should I worry about it?
