Default HK P2000 9mm

Looked at HK P2000 last night. Thinking about buying one (for off duty and just to shoot).

It really felt great in hands, seems like its to quality handgun. Also looked at VP9 and liked P2000 way better. VP9 is less expensive , but P2000 seems to just fit me better.

Anyone has experience with HK P2000?

Have a V2 LEM. The original trigger heavy pull and a rear sight that was not centered meant I couldn't hit the broadside of a barn with it. Put in a reduced strength trigger rebound spring and firing pin block spring. This reduced the trigger to 5 lb 1oz . That combined with centering the rear sight got this gun usable for me. It's a comfortable fit and well made, but I think the statement that "HK makes the best $600 gun that $900 can buy" is applicable.

That wasn't a sale. HK lowered the price to $650. It's staying there.

It's a great gun. Well, unless you are a portly b.p. agent in a quad accident then it has a detachable grip.

I'd say that nearly everyone shoots a striker fired gun better than a DA/SA or LEM.

I'd take the VP9 over the P2000 any day. Sold my P2000 a few years ago. It was LEM.

IMHO, the USP/USPC/HK45/HK45C light LEM trigger is comparable to a Glock trigger, except with a long and light takeup. The P30/P2000/P2000SK light LEM is a different (and worse) trigger because of the much longer reset. I still plan to get a P2000 or a P2000SK some day, because the ergos are similar to the HK45c, my favorite HK so far.

wouldnt the P30 be more comparable to the P2000. though i dont have experience with either i do have the HK45 and really like the ergos of the new modular grip designs so i would lean towards the P30.

Yeah, I'd be comparing P30 to the P2000.

It's a great HK handgun, now being sold at a lower more competitive price. Lots in service as contract duty sidearms in several countries including ours. 14+ years of reliability in service. Good luck.

Pros: I think it is a great pistol, maybe the best DA/SA made (other than a P30) in terms of quality and reliability. Good ergonomics, an improvement over the USP. Excellent accuracy. A good carry pistol for someone who is hesitant to carry a striker-fired pistol. (The heavy DA serves as "safety.").

Cons: The trigger is subpar. The DA pull is smoother than the USP, but not as smooth as a P30, in my experience. The reset is too long. (The reset on a stock USP is much better). I do not like LEM trigger either because it is too long. The bore axis is a little high. The magazine capacity (if you live in a Free State) is only 13 rounds; it does, however, accept VP9 15-round magazines. The P30's ergonomics are better.

In sum: I do not care much for DA/SA pistols anymore. But if I had to have one, either this or the P30 would probably be it, at least in 9mm.

Default P2000 is a great gun

I have used a P2000 V3 .40S&W as my primary carry gun for several years. It feels great in the hand, shoot flawlessly and accurately (at least as good as I can shoot it). The only issue I have is that the heavily curved trigger would chew my trigger finger, and the trigger pull is pretty heavy out of the box. I did a few trigger mods, including flattening the trigger, and is now 5.5/2.5 lb. pull. I really like the gun now, and have a 9mm version in jail and will probably complete the same trigger work. Here's a pic of the "new" trigger.

Love the P2000, but I can't shoot the LEM version very well.

Great pistol. I bought a used P2K w/LEM years ago. I have no idea how many rounds the original owner(s) put through it (consignment gun from Turners) but I put almost 3,500 rounds through it. It was my off duty carry for 7 months. It functioned perfectly with any ammo I loaded it with.

Only issue is figuring out which variant you want to go with.

This is a necro thread from 2015. If you wanted to show off your P2000, post it in the HK pictures thread in the gallery.

Still relevant though, as I just picked up my P2000 yesterday.

I shot the LEM version before...it was ok. Would like to try the DA/SA one to compare. Good gun over all for a hammer fired polymer.

I absolutely love both the P2k & P2K-SK They've both been 100% reliable with resectable accuracy.

The reset sure is a mile long compared to my USP, but something one can easily adapt to. The trigger itself is nice, just the reset is long. Can't compare this and a nice 1911, just wouldn't be fair.

I have a P2000 and it's ok. I like the double action pull. I thinks it's very smooth. I agree that the reset is longer than what one would like. I also don't like the floppy ambidextrous slide release. The slide release on the right side of the gun moves around ever so slightly. It's not a big deal but just an annoyance. Also I thought the mag release was a little small to reach so I replaced it with a larger one from and HK45. Other than that its a solid gun - can't really go wrong with an HK.
