    Picked up a P2000 V2 in 40S&W this evening. Four mags, night sights (bright) and an additional HK .357sig barrel. Traded a S&W 380 BG and $275 for it. Can’t find a mark on it, looks like it’s never been carried. BD on the pistol and BE on the .357sig barrel. Really looking forward to trying this one out at the range, perhaps even our local Outlaw match.

    I see several other folks just recently got into a P2000. Feels good to get back into an HK.

    Absolutely terrible deal. I will take it off your hands for $325.

    Well, the wife now has her 380EZ and had zero interest in the 380 BG and I already had my pretty pink LCP so the BG became an extra. On AL the seller/trader was specifically asking for a BG and cash so figured it was a good option. Did some pricing when I came home and it really seems like a good deal. The BG with laser and 5 mags cost me $350. Add in the $275 so I’m into it for $625 total. I’m seeing the P2000 in .40 for around $600+ without night sights. Add another $100 for NS, probably around $150+ for an HK 357 barrel and $70 for the extra couple of mags and it’s a $900+ package give or take. Take a chunk off for ‘used’ and I feel like I’m still ahead on the deal. Pistol looks like it’s never been carried.

    Rather than start another thread, the P30 I just picked up yesterday in 9mm. Fits the same holsters I have for the P2000 of course which is a nice bonus.

    They really are built very well. Now that I'm back into HK platforms I realize how much I missed them. In particular I've been wanting to get back into a hammer-fired pistol and now I've been fortunate to get a couple of good ones.

    Get an extended mag release for that P2000 from Hk parts. Its well worth the $$.
    I found the stock release to be a little too small. This was a huge improvement and it still doesn’t stick out past the widest part of the trigger guard.

    Range report:

    Yesterday afternoon I took my niece's husband to the range. He doesn't have any firearms but is interested (and he's shot with me before). I took a sampling of five different pistols, the P2000 V2 .40 S&W and the P30 V3 9mm were two of those pistols. Wow! I really enjoyed each of those pistols. Starting off with the P30, the DA trigger pull was very nice and smooth. The SA, of course, was even lighter and smoother. It was an easy transition between the two. Accuracy was simply superb. Gave me a chance to show him various types of triggers such as DA/SA, DAO and striker). I might play around with the side panels and back strap a bit but it was very comfortable to shoot with the panels and strap that are on there now.

    The P2000 turned out to be my favorite between the two, though it was a tough call. During one string of fire I put the target out to about 15 yards and was shooting the little scoring box in the upper right corner. Well, I'm not a world-class pistol shot but I am, in all modesty, a very good shot. I use to do head shots at 25 and 35 yards with my G26. But I was exceedingly pleased with how well the P2000 grouped the shots in that little box. Most shots touching and many going through the same hole. That pistol, even with the stouter .40's was pleasant and a joy to shoot. This is definitely going to be my new woods-carry pistol. That allows the G22.4 to stay on HD duty (which gives me a high capacity Glock at each end of the house as well as in the middle).

    So as mentioned above, my EDC and HD needs are met with the Glocks and Sig P365 so this allows the HK's do be used for woods-carry duty and matches. I'm very pleased with these two pistols.

    I ordered an extended mag release for the P2000 (thanks 45caldan). That is scheduled to arrive Saturday. I also ordered a few boxes of .357sig ammo so that I can try that barrel in the P2000. Should arrive Friday. Hopefully it will be just as pleasant to shoot as the .40 S&W. Don't really plan to carry with .357sig but wanted to have the option and some experience with it.

    I received the extended mag release several days ago. Very quick shipping. Haven't had the chance to put it on as of yet, hopefully today or tomorrow. Out-of-state company keeping me busy :)

    Okay, I replaced the mag release with the extended version I purchased from HKpro and love it! Makes a superb pistol even better! This is fast becoming my favorite pistol. Still have the 40 S&W barrel in it and will likely keep it that way. Makes we curious about the P2000sk version.

    Thanks again 45caldan.
