P30 .40 for P2000SK 9mm: Wise Trade?

Transitioning from .40 to 9mm over the past few months, and my final .40 I've got to sell/trade is an HK P30 V3. I've got a deal more or less panned out to trade it (with Trij Night Sights) for a similar condition P2000SK 9mm without Night Sights, but he's throwing in 100 rounds of ammo. Ammo doesn't quite make up the difference, but trading HKs can be tough given the small market-share they make-up and trying to find someone with one willing to trade. I think I'm going to move forward. Anyone think I'm getting significantly shorted? (no caliber arguments please).

I own a P30 40 and a P2000SK 40.
Both fine weapons.
Both bombproof and super accurate.
The SK is easier to carry and is spooky soft shooting (dual RSA).
It's my during the week EDC.
If I could only keep one? It would be the SK.

IMHO a trade of those two, in like condition, is a fair one.

I like my p2000sk 40 LEM so much I bought a matching one in 9mm. The P 30 sounds nice, but never owned one. The prices sound at least close to each other.

If it works out better for you then do it. Value wise is pretty close.

Did it! LEM trigger, which I was hoping for. Not sure if its heavy LEM or light LEM. Have only handled the light LEM once and this feels a little heavier than I recall, but I'm still not sure. Its from 2007 per the casings. Did they make light LEM back then? Anyways, like the way it feels. Will shoot it this weekend Lord willing.

Light LEM is just a swap of the FPBS and TRS - no big.
The result is 4.5 lbs sweetness.

I highly recommend upgrading to the extended mag release.

Let me know if you need part numbers...

Sure, I'll take the part #'s. I like to frequent HKparts.net. They're already sending me some more mags and the flat mag floor plates. This must be the V2 heavy LEM based on my quick research. Like the way it feels. Haven't shot it yet...range trip Sunday.

Easy to swap? I've installed various trigger parts. Never swapped this part. Imagine its not too tough?

Had a gunsmith do it.
There are youtube videos on the net.
And HKPro forum technical threads on how to do it.
The TRS is the tricky part - I understand - LOL!

HKCS will do it for you as well.

Range Report

Shot 100 rounds today. Cheap ammo, all of it, that I picked up as a part of the trade, and the HK ate it up without any problems.

This is my first time to shoot the LEM. And I LOVE it. Its not even the Light LEM, but I don't think I'm going to mess with swapping it out. The first stage doesn't seem heavy to me at all. The second stage is nice, and the reset is fairly short and palpable. I was very accurate with it, better than expected for not having shot the LEM before, and I am by no means a marksman.

The thing that surprised me is that I brought a magazine with the flat floor plate installed, and one with the floor plate installed that comes with the firearm (not sure what to call it, but has the pinky rest thingy). Anyways, to my surprise, I preferred the flat floor plate. Surprising to me because on my G26's I prefer the Pearce +0 floor plates. But I think that because the HK pinky-rest floor plate is curved in, my hand was too big for it and I could not grip the pistol comfortably with all three fingers. So with the flat floor plate, I rested my pinky under the grip and it worked just fine and was very comfortable.

The gun is also a very soft shooter. (This may have been affected by the fact that I shot an S&W .500 Magnum revolver first!).

Overall, definitely a keeper and was a great trade.

If you're happy with the V2 heavy LEM?
By all means keep it that way - LOL.
I prefer the flat floor plate mags too.
Highly recommend you upgrade to the extended mag release.
IMHO that's a must have option.

Put the extended mag release on it, and went ahead and put one on my USP45 while I was at it. Very easy to do. Nice upgrade. Thanks for the info. Saw you post the same thing over at HKpro.com. You must be the unofficial spokesman for the extended mag release

You're giving away my, not so secret, identity - LOL!
Glad you enjoyed the upgrade.

For some of us we do not have an infinite monetary situation so this is how we upgrade our stable.

I tend to not sell/trade either. But, I have limited room in the safe and was consolidating calibers from .40 to 9mm and .45.

And I am glad I made this trade, the SK is great! I've also recently ordered a USPc 9mm and am eagerly awaiting its arrival.
