    I have both the P30SK and the P2000SK and I found that I like my P2000SK much better and the reason is that my groups are much tighter without having to do anything differently between the two.

    I think that based on the size of my hands, the way the P30SK grip fits my hands is less than ideal. I'm contemplating the purchase of mag extenders for the mag floor plate so I can have a pinky land like the P2000SK.

    I'm curious if you like one better than the other and why.

    Thanks!

    I bought the P30sk over the P2000sk because I liked the way the P30sk felt in my hand. I find the P30sk with the side panels and back strap option has a better fit for me than the P2000sk. I like shooting the P30sk better than my USPc. It just feels great in my hand.

    The P2000SK seems to fit my hand better.

    I'm not sure I've ever handle the P30SK. I have the P2000SK, so it would really be hard to buy the P30SK Since they seem to be so close.

    It doesn't feel that comfortable in my hands, Bucky. I find it hard to hold for some reason. I never shot one though.

    I have and like both.
    My P2000Sk is a 40.
    With 180 gr rounds it groups better in my hands than the P30SK with 147 gr 9mm.
    So guess which one I carry more often?

    The P30sk seems to fit my hand comfortably, especially when I use the 15 round mag and spacer.

    I like both... I just recently got a nice used P2000sk LEM with nites already installed... now I'm Gonna have to fight the urge NOT to by a VP9sk....

    Haven't shot the P2000sk yet, but if it shoots as sweeet as my P2000 LEM... it's gonna be nice!

    I chose the P2Ksk because I have a P2K I love. That and the P2K is offered in three cartridges and the VPsk and P30sk are only offered in 9mm.

    Bought my P2000SK 357 Sig barrel directly from Hk.
    Hk has been producing 357 replacement barrels with date codes
    later than when they discontinued producing guns in that caliber.
    You can still get new 357 Sig barrels for P2000, P2000SK & USPc.

    Thank you both but I believe I checked both and they were out. I have heard they stopped making the P2000sk 357 barrels in 2013. Has anyone seen a BE barrel? The latest I've seen is BD.

    Seems only one place actually has them and they're very proud of them. It also seems that place has deal going with RCM, the only maker of aftermarket HK barrels I know of. They offer 357 barrels for every .40 HK made I believe (I know they make them for the P30, P30L and VP40) but no P2000sk barrel. They even offer them threaded which is pretty rare for 357 barrels. If I wasn't so skeptical I probably would not think they will be on the market right after the HK barrels are sold out. The RCM barrels are high quality, I have a threaded P2K barrel in 40. They are also $80 less from RCM than the other place.

    I've got a RCM 357 Barrel for my P30.
    Shoots low and FTFs.
    Can't recommend them.

    My recommendation is to go with OEM Hk.
    Full Disclosure: I do have a Jarvis that works fine in my USPT45- LOL
