Hey guys, I'm curious if you thinking swapping my Gen4 Glock 19 for a HK P2000SK .40 LEM is a good deal? I prefer my G26 for carry and basically never shoot the G19 because I have too many other 9's. I was thinking i'd like to get a second carry option in .40 What do you think?
I have shot the H&K200 carried by our border patrol agents.
Accuracy is great
function is great
Trigger pull= 2 men and a boy. the double action pull must weight over 13 lbs + and the trigger pull is VERRRy long. The agent who was issued the pistol stated it was around 17 lbs.
Rumor FWIW is that they were trading those pistols in on either a Glock or s S&W M&P.
I have talked with several of the BP agents that are "Shooters" and there seems to be no love for the H&K, however they admit that it "works"
As I do not like Glocks I would do it. If nothing else you may get better re-trade value on the HK if you dont like it.

And forgot to mention the LEM trigger is nothing like a 12 lb DA. Weight of the break varies depending on the variant between around 8 to around 5 after the long slack take up and it's just a couple springs to change between the various versions. Every shot is the same pull.

Where police officers are talking about it.
I myself would be hard pressed NOT to trade, even with the heavy trigger pull.
All these guys posting comments say it took getting used to but they can't imagine a finer pistol.
I would rather die with good men than hide with cowards

Keep the G19. You WILL regret trading it, especially of you have a G26 with which to share mags. If you want the HK, save up for it.
The number of people killed because they didn't have "enough gun" is dwarfed by those who had none at all. Get a gun you will always carry, and add more capability as you grow.
I would make the trade, sell the HK, and buy a new G19 and keep the profit.

I have 3 P2000 SK LEMs, a 40 s & w (extra barrel in .357 Sig), a .357 Sig,, and a range gun in 9mm. If the trigger is TOOO stiff, then go with the light LEM at 5 lbs pull (Still a "Factory" setting). If the one you're trading for doesn't come with the light LEM; the H & K Parts are ± $30.00 and any gunsmith can do the work. All of mine I've converted to the light LEM and they are sweet shooters.
Just a note: Factory heavy LEM is an 8 Lbs pull. The DA/SA may get a little heaver in pull on the first round but not much.
Nowhere near a 15# Pull!

Have Fun and Shoot Straight !!
