Picked up a new P2000SK V2 LEM in 9mm on Friday and managed to get it out to the range this morning. I ran 150 rounds of blazer brass through it along with between 10 and 20 rounds each of critical defense, critical duty, gold dot 147, gold dot 124, and HST 124. Not a single issue. The gun seems to suck up rounds into the chamber like nothing.
I had no problems at all adjusting to the LEM trigger. I may or may not try the light LEM springs, but so far Iím just fine with the weight. It doesnít feel like a heavy trigger to me. I do miss the tactile reset, but the length of pull on the reset is just fine and I didnít have to think about anything at the range.
I was originally planning to add a Glock 26 to my collection, but since I already had a glock 27 and conversion barrel, I decided to splurge a bit and try my first H&K. Iím pretty sure Iíll be adding more to the collection. I love how the gun sits in my hand. I do have plans to add the extended mag release though. I donít have an issue with the style, but itís kind of small on the SK and I find my thumb periodically trying to apply pressure at an awkward angle to activate it.
I ordered a comp-tac shell, but it probably wonít be here for another two weeks and Iím impatient so I dug into my older holsters and found a Foxx hybrid holster for an XDM 3.8 compact that will accept the p2000sk. I'll be taking it out again this week as I picked up a 590A1 that I need to break in as well, but I think I'm going to be carrying this even though I normally try to shoot it a bit more first.
In the size comparison photos its an XDS45, Shield 9mm, p2000sk, g27, and g30s.
Be careful.....you just might end up throwing those Glocks away Just say'n
Nice to have all those. How do they all compare to each other? What is your 1,2,3 choice???
The P2000SK LEM is hard not to like, IMO. About its only weak spot is the slightly slippery grip surface. Easily corrected with a bit of judicious stippling to rough-up the texture. Otherwise, it's a tremendously reliable, durable little unit. Easy to use with the large ambi controls. Supports the softer LEM springs, and (IIRC) the slightly larger mag release paddles. Great choice.
Nice to see it in the photos, for size comparison. Funny how svelte the Shield 9mm looks, next to those "fatties."
than137, I am now officially jealous of you. You just bought the gun I have been lusting after for many years but just can't justify spending the money on. I have held and shot one and it feels better in my hand than any other gun in the world except one and that is the HK P30. I still lust for a P2000SK.
Gongrats and if you ever decide to give it away, please keep me in mind.
Bought a P2000 after years of bashing HK owners. Only took one range trip to figure out what I had been missing. I now own three HK's and carry them just as much as my beloved 1911's
I have a P2000sk in 357 Sig that I absolutely love. Great size to carry and like you said, ZERO malfunctions!

Congrats on your new HK. I began carrying one in 2005. It is a fine pistol. The controls, their location and style are the best fit for me of any pistol out there so far. CDNN usually has good mag prices. I also have a USPc, which shares mags with the P2000sk. For good, fun range time the cheaper 10 round USPc mags can be found for half the P2000sk mag price... sometimes. A full capacity USPc mag gives you 3 more rounds if you end up carrying the HK and an extra mag.
A great gun that shoots and feels bigger than it is. The more you use it the more you'll like it. It feels so competent. Enjoy.
I have same gun, really like it, but am struggling a bit with the LEM system.
