Looking for a P2000sk or USPC stainless 9mm light lem
 
I see these for sale often but I'm always a day late. Does anyone know of a good deal on a P2000sk in 9mm or a stainless USPC in 9mm? Looking for a low round count and in great shape.

I've owned a P2000sk in sa/da and loved the ergonomics and accuracy. After having a G19, I really liked the trigger pull and consistency it had, would the light LEM be close to this or am I way off? The sa/da always makes me hesitate before firing but the Glock setup was perfect for my taste.

I know they are out there so I am throwing this out in case any of you have seen one for sale locally or at a gun show. THanks in advance for any help.

I couldn't tell you where the best deal is, but I do own and carry a P2000SK in .40, with the LEM trigger. I think it's an excellent trigger system. I usually carry mine in an ankle holster. It's light and compact, and comfortable to carry and shoot.

I use the magazine baseplate with the finger lip, rather than the flush mag base. It doesn't add significantly to the bulk or outline of the pistol, but it feels better in my hand and I think aids in the grip and ergonomics of the handgun.

The P2000SK is a great choice. My only complaint, expressed here before, was each magazine supplied by the factory; all three mag springs lost their spring and went "flat." When I spoke with the factory about it, I was told that I shouldn't leave the magazines loaded, and that it destroys the springs. I haven't seen this to be the case with any of my other HK's, and I think the factory counsel is idiotic, but take it for what it's worth. After the magazines sat for a period of time, removing one or two rounds from the magazine released all tension, and the others could fall out or jam the firearm.

I should add that I haven't come across anyone else who had this same problem, and reiterate I haven't had it with any of my other HK's. It could be a one-off deal, but seems extremely coincidental to happen to all three magazines.

Thanks for the input guppy. The sk I owned was a .40 too and I agree it's a helluva gun. I have about 500 rds of 9mm stockpiled and I like the lower shooting prices so I've decided to stick with 9mm if at all possible. For some reason the .40 isn't selling well (at least the used H&K market). I nearly bought a new one at budsgunshop.com last month as they had a sale, $650 brand new with two barrels, the .357sig and the .40. I missed that before they sold out though. Hoping they will get it again and I'll buy NIB.

light LEM is more similar to the glock trigger than da/sa, but they're not really the same. there's a long and very light take up before the break on the LEM trigger, something the glock trigger doesn't have. I converted my USP to light LEM recently, I think I prefer the glock trigger more, but I don't dislike the LEM at all. You can find more in detail discussions on hkpro.com.

Owned HK's for many year's. Like my DA/SA since that's from a revolver guy who went to the DA semi.'s. Never seen or tried a LEM HK did a superb job there no doubt.

But i carry a USPc 9mm stainless very very hard to find. Or my HK45c since i like the .45!! Not much into sub.'s(hand size) even tho they can be made bigger but that defeat's their purpose, good luck....

mattkats1 01-03-2012 22:18

good info guys thanks. I started out wanting only a stainless USPc but it's because I have a soft spot for two tone and as you said, they are hard to find. I missed a brand new one (new old stock I'm sure) at Whitaker's Guns in Ownesboro KY last month. $759 and it was gone the week after I checked it out. Unfortunately I still had my Kimber Ultra Aegis II and couldn't afford the H&K without selling it first. Sold the Kimber 3 days later and boom the stainless was long gone.

One thing I've learned is just be patient, something will happen along.

One for sale now from NW IN on HKpro.com / forums. I think it was $650 with some goodies. I thought about it myself but I'm a little gunned out at the moment. Don't get hung up that is has to be 'light LEM', you can always have it changed later.

Yes I've seen that one. The guy was a real jackwad so I passed on buying it. I tried though!

Thanks for the info though...I'll find one eventually!

sourdough44 01-18-2012 19:49

You did right to pass if you got bad vibes from the seller. I'd also keep an eye on new prices from Buds gunshop. They may not be much higher & you'll know for sure what you're getting. As I remember inventory comes & goes with them.

mattkats1 01-18-2012 22:27

Agree 100% on Buds. I've been patiently watching and added the pistols to my wish list in case they come in again. I missed a before Xmas special that offered a P2000sk brand new in .357sig with a free .40 barrel for $650. It was a deal and a steal but they sold out fast.

UrbanCowboy 02-04-2012 20:13

I have the lighter LEM trigger on my USPc 9mm Stainless and on my USP 45CT. My P2000 and P2000SK which both have the heavier LEM triggers. I preffer the lighter LEM but would say the heaver one is closer to the Glock trigger. That said the LEM trigger has a longer pull and a slightly longer reset. THat being said I myself think the lighter LEM trigger is better than my Glock 30 with the 4# connector and lighter spring.

cowboy1964 02-04-2012 21:10

The LEM weight is pretty easy to change. I changed my P30 from the stock LEM to the next lighter one. It's just knocking out one roll pin and changing the firing pin safety block spring. Going to the lightest requires a bit more work and the mid-weight is perfect for a carry piece.

mattkats1 02-05-2012 12:24

Good info thanks. I haven't found one (uspc stainless) yet and all the p2000sk's are either sold before I find them or priced higher than new. Patience will pay off eventually.

mattkats1 02-06-2012 17:19

argh still looking...whiffed on two SS 9's the last two weeks

Sig Fever 02-11-2012 08:26

I own a USPc V1 in .40S&W and a P2000SK V2 in 9mm. The P2000SK is my EDC but don't discount the USPc models, they are fine handguns and the accuracy is fantastic. Here is one that I sold to fund the P2000SK in 9mm.

Just some Gun Pr0n....
