Default H&K P2000 V2 to V1 conversion

I've been reading quite a bit about this conversion and thought I'd give it a try. For those not familiar with this, the V2 trigger pull is 4.5 lbs for the first stage and 8-8.5 lbs to release the sear. Installing the V1 kit give you a consistent 4.5 trigger pull. While I was at it, I also installed the extended magazine release.

The magazine release was pretty easy to do. One roll pin to remove, a spring to catch as the release is removed and installation was in reverse order. You have to compress the spring to reinstall it so I used a knife edge to compress it and get it in place.

The V2 to V1 involves two springs, detailed here with better pictures than I'd be able to take.

The Firing Pin Block spring was an easy replacement, 5 minutes max. The Trigger Return Spring was much harder since this spring is under tension between the frame, axle and trigger. The use of a 1/16" punch is mandatory (unless you know some trick I don't) because it allows the spring enough movement to get one leg behind the trigger and the other leg pointing forward. I ended up using a combination of 1/16" roll pin punch, a conventional 1/16" punch and a small jewelers screwdriver to work the spring leg into position.

Now, to decide if I want to do the same thing to the P2000 V3 I have.
