Heckler and Koch P2K 357 Sig V1 LEM Light

Holy Moly this thing is a shooter.
Runs 357 Sig like butter.
Fits my hand like a glove.
This has instantly become my new carry gun.

Thanks everybody!
I'd just bought my HK P30 40 LEM a few weeks earlier.
And ran across this NIB P2000 357 LEM for $649?!?

I love the 357 Sig round for Self Defense.
And just couldn't pass up a NIB HK for that price.
Thought this opportunity would pass me by If I didn't jump on it.

Every once in a while things work out.

Sucks that HK is giving up on .357 Sig.

You don't know how much I agree with you.

Range Report Part Two.
Went back to the range with my P30 40, P2000 357 and a boat load of ammo.
Both guns are P series, LEM V1 guns with Big Dots and Hogue grips.
Practically sisters.
(I swapped the P30 Pachmayr for Hogue at the range after some shooting)
Heckler & Koch Forum
The two primary differences to me are the grips and caliber.
As dreamy and the P30 feels just holding her, I clearly and decisively favor shooting the P2K.

Ergonomics, felt recoil, buttery operation and free hand accuracy
are aspects hard to quantify - but undeniable.

I love my new P2K 357 LEM.

I have a gun buying problem, and you are not helping. I own a 9 mm P30 and I really like it, but my biggest gripe is the slide release is too long for my grip style. I shoot thumbs forward, and my right thumb rides the slide release to the extent that it doesn't lock the slide back. I wonder if I could fit a P 2000 slide release on the right side of my P 30?

For a while I was thinking that the P 30 would be the (almost) perfect appendix carry gun for me. But now you have me wondering if the P 2000 isn't the perfect compromise between the USP and the P 30. Do you really like the P 2000 grip better than the P30s? (I have never even held a P2000)

While the .357 Sig cartridge isn't my cup-o-tea, the P2K is a fantastic firearm in any caliber. I have the P2Ksk in .40 and It's easily my favorite sub-compact pistol I've ever owned.

Congratulations!

Couldn't agree with you more on how nice a P2000 shoots. P2000 .40 is my home defense gun, since all my Glocks are modified, I'm always amazed how well I shoot the P2000, it's almost effortless to be accurate with it, if that makes sense - fantastic gun.

And at $649, you got one hell of a deal.

I don't think so. Try the shorty P30 slide release.

"But now you have me wondering if the P 2000 isn't the perfect compromise between the USP and the P 30.
IMHO that's exactly what the P2K is.

" Do you really like the P 2000 grip better than the P30s?"
Yes. And Hogue grips make her even better.

Yup, I thought about it.
And at that price I decided I needed two! LOL
Second identical twin P2K 357 LEM arrives Thursday - Woo Hoo!

Now I can play Underworld/Tomb Raider

I carry a P2000SK in .40 in an ankle holster. It's a handy, comfortable to shoot, compact pistol. Mine has the LEM trigger, which is an excellent feature.

I JUST picked up a P2k in 9mm (my first HK) and I absolutely love it.

I hate when the light sticks out past the muzzle; on my G34 it is just right.

Since I'm not carrying this gun, is there a way to switch out the springs in order to give it a lighter trigger pull? It will strictly be a range gun.

Thank you, Doyle. How does the SK compare to the other one?

I may look into one for CC.
