Default HK P2000 LEM DAO 9mm

I'm burnt out reading all the AW talk.... registration...featureless...etc. Figured I'd get back on track with this handgun "project".

A few weeks ago I posted sort of a novel idea, about buying a .40 on my 40th:
http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/s....php?t=1212013

That said, every time I went to the LGS, I'd find a .40 I like, and I couldn't help but tell myself: "Damn this would be nice in 9mm...." - I shoot mainly 9mm & 45.

Initially I was drawn to an off-roster and steel .40, but I can't seem to get my mind off this pistol: HK P2000 LEM DAO 9mm

For those that own this pistol - tell me more.

Can it be barrel/slide swapped to .40? (In the event I want to celebrate my 40th as initially planned).

Clearly - I'm still undecided!
Thanks for your time!

I'm sure this is not super helpful, as it doesn't addres your barrel swap idea, but I've always avoided H&K pistols simply because their mags cost so much. I typically buy 5-6 mags for any auto loader I own, and that's about $250 for an H&K.

Last I checked P2000 mags were $27 a piece. They're not Glock cheap, but that's not too crazy.

I really like my P2000 in LEM 9 mm.

P2000 mags are cheap. $20 to $30 ea.

Not sure of the barrels are interchangeable.

It will be cheaper to buy another P2000 in 9 mm. The price to change out barrel and slide would be the same price. Slide is not interchangeable between the two calibers.

Love my p2000 converted LEM!! Mags are in the expensive side but they aren't cheaply made either. Overall great gun, love the ambi controls. I did a thread on my conversions and little mods that I did to it.

I have and carry the p2000 Lem. Trigger takes getting use to but worth it. I like the idea of hammer fired without a safety. You can thumb the hammer while holstering and see it come back as you take up trigger slack. I like the platform.

Thanks!! I'll check this out!!

I like the ambi controls too, I'm a lefty. But I power stroke the slide on all my semis anyways, regardless of controls.

No info on the 2000, but ive had a few USPs and loved them all. My hk45 prompted the hk45c, which has prompted the wife to get their striker fire, hopefully next month????
We are an HK family.

Pretty sure a P2000 will be my next HK pistol in either .40 or 9. And yes no mag disconnect

I hear ya on the power stroke/sling shot method. Being a lefty as well, I just like having the options if ever needed it's there. If you do decide to go with the p2000 I highly advise to upgrade your mag release to the bigger release. It's like $20 but well worth it, easy install and makes a difference. The paddle took a little getting use to. In the beginning I caught myself trying to press instead of pushing down. If you already have paddle style mag releases then you won't have any problems at all. LEM trig does take a bit of getting use to as well but nothing you won't catch on to after a magazine or 2.

^ it would be my first paddle mag release gun, and a range toy, so I think it would be a nice intro to that platform. I can't imagine I'll hate it. Usually one "different" feature on a pistol doesn't turn me off. Though rare, I have a few pistols with at least two features that turn me off and those are always first in line for the classifieds LOL

Thanks! Maybe a .40 on my 40th is not in my future...

Two versions of the HKP2000 are on the roster.
V2 - LEM DAO
V3 - DA/SA with decocker

The V2 LEM is a long heavy trigger, I found it to be to heavy and modified it to be a LEM V1 - Spring kit available from HK.

Try dry firing both before you make a decision to go for the LEM, you might prefer the V3.

The decocker on the V3 is on the back of the slide. It's an odd place but if you can accept the magazine drop placement you can learn to live with the decocker placement.
