HK P30L

Recommended Posts

Are these popular models for comp shooting? Are they liked as much as Glock, STI or Sig? Any reason not to shot them in comp? I have wanted one for a long time but haven't purchased yet. My carry gun is a Glock and I target shoot with a Sig 226. Anyway, thanks.

Its a fantastic gun that I would trust my life to, yet for competition, there are better alternatives with larger after market support.

For me, the DA/SA trigger is not great for competition.

Everything else, I love the gun, and the ultimate SHTF gun for me.

I carry my P-30 regularly and compete with it occasionally. Mine is a DA/SA version which I like. Not much after market support, not a lot one can do to the trigger etc. But, reliable, durable and light to carry. I have some pistols that are fussy about what loads they shoot accurately but not the P-30.

Thanks for the replies, I appreciate the insight. Well I guess my list will include 3 pistols now instead of 2. When will it stop??!!

I used a P30L for IDPA for 2 years and went from novice to sharp shooter. You can be competitive with it, but it could greatly benefit from a trigger job.

Is LEM necessary to have the lighter DA and shorter SA reset?

LEM isn't a DA/SA. LEM is a "pre-cocked" DAO with an intermediate reset.

I shoot a P30 with the Bruce Gray trigger job and love it, I normally compete with a CZ Shadow. The trigger feels almost as good as my Shadow, I haven't shot a match with it yet, but plan to soon. Mine is SA/DA, and I'm picking up an HK45 with LEM this afternoon.

You can do the LEM mod on the USP's as well and then take it a step further but doing the Hybrid LEM/Match trigger set up. I have a USP9 LEM I am having converted to the hybrid option.

I would love to try them out in IPSC PD here in the Philippines, although I never seen anyone yet here competing with it. We have the V3 ver here, and with a 12lb hammer spring and a lighter fpbs, I think it can be competetive enough. I dig the reliability and durabilty of th HK's :)

I used to shot product with a P30LS ver 1 ... I keep tweaking it but it need a better recoil spring to make it more softer.

I shoot a P30 in 9MM and I've often wondered if the P30L would have a more controllable recoil impulse. I have arthritis and I'm becoming more sensitive to recoil as it gets worse. I find that the P30 seems to generate more recoil than most of my 9's, except for the very small ones, like the SA EMP.
