This is a discussion on HK P30 in 9mm arrives and I'm not all that excited within the Defensive Carry Guns forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; Originally Posted by SCfromNY I can not beleive it feels cheap.

At any rate, another good option for trigger work is Bruce Grey at GGI. Pricier to be sure, but the work he and his people do is absolutely fantastic. I got reduced reset carry perfection package done to my P2000 LEM, and it turned a gun I loved into a gun that I will NEVER, NEVER part with for as long as I'm on this earth. They refitted and smoothed out the action, put in an internal overtravel stop, reduced the trigger weight down to just under 5 lbs, reduced the reset by what feels like 50%, and nickel-finished all relevant parts. Check them out too.*
*I do NOT work for GGI and am not affiliated with them in any manner. Just a very satisfied customer.
Like JD said, back on topic . . .
The P30 is a great gun, nothing cheap about it to be sure. Just give it some time, and if you don't like the DA/SA consider changing in a LEM trigger. Most HK shooters I know prefer the LEM over the more traditional DA/SA pull in the P-series.
Ok so I shot it this weekend and it is growing on me. It is probably the softest shooting 9mm I have ever shot. Somehow even softer that the all steel guns I've owned.The trigger isn't good at all but like some have said....a quick trip to see Bruce at GGI would probably fix that.My wife mentioned she really liked how it felt to her so I think I will have her go shoot it to see if she wants it as her HD gun.
LOL. A Sig snob calling an HK cheap. That's a good one.
Kimbers are the guns you show your friends....Glocks are the ones you show your enemies.
I have 3 HK pistols. HK45C, P2000 and P2000 SK. P2000s are in 9mm. I have sold P30 since I did not like the grip and trigger.
IF you won HK I would go with LEM V1 or light trigger. My P30 was DA/SA and I just could not shoot it!
All of them are LEM V1 light triggers and they shoot great. My 45C surprises me how accurate it can be. I wish they would have SRT like some SIgs. It is more personal choice to get a proper pistol. Sig has his own style but they are heavy and bulky.
HK so far never failed me not even once, after 6,000 rounds combined.
I like the PPQ better on all facets. IMO, Sig make too many similar models, "just for the sake of it", and H&K should make it cleared in their advertising exactly what each different trigger does. "I happen to know, but many on several forums that bought these guns, didn't know what was available. Like the different LEM, triggers available, and the many options of decocker safety and nothing. I imagine that a lot of folks buy the P30 and have to change out the trigger or end up selling the gun, because they just didn't do the research before buying it. If a friend who won the IDPA with a LEM 45 caliber model hadn't had shown me, I would not know that there were so many different barrel lengths, and trigger options, even different models of the LEM trigger. I believe that for the money the PPQ is a better value and a better shooter overall. I can't see spending over $800-1000 dollars on a Plastic gun personally, it goes against my grain , having been brought up on steel and carrying 44 years now. I do carry a Kahr PM9, or an XDS, for daily carry, so have nothing against Tupperware guns, but don't see paying a grand for one. But that said, the PPQ is just an outstanding gun in it's superb trigger and accuracy, I don't see that P30 having any unique features to make it worth that kind on cash. It doesn't do anything that a glock 19 doesn't do.
I'll trade you that HK for a G17.
The G17 is a great gun, but it just doesn't feel right in my hands. I love my HK .45, and it is my primary carry, even more so than the PM9. I just have some issues - and it may be some issues with my hands in general, due to old wrist and knuckle injuries - with holding and shooting the Glock. Like I said, it's a great gun, a fine gun, but it's just not for me.
Give me that HK and I'll give you a Glock.
I'm in favor of gun control -- I think every citizen should have control of a gun.

No price difference there, lol.....
If there are no dogs in Heaven, then when I die I want to go where they went.
Im a big fan of the .22LR for bear defense.
Just shoot the guy next to you in the knee and run like heck.
I have a P30s in 9mm and love it, there is nothing cheap about these guns - not even the price. On a serious note I wouldn't trade any of my HK's, or my Glock 23C, or my Walther PPS. I use a P229DAK as my service pistol and for as much as I love it, it's just to damn heavy for concealed carry (IMHO). I think you made a pretty even trade, and once you get used to shooting it you will fall in love and want another HK product for your stable.
