Garrett TheGun: I have exact problem with fingers! Shortest thumbs ever! I can barely reach mag release on Glock 42....I have learned and trained to break grip to release mag
thomas au: how big is your hand?
Glutton4Punishment: I no longer have my SIG P226 or P228. I have a P30 myself, now. The SIGs were nicer guns, but the HK is the BETTER gun. Lighter, better handle, ambidextrous, and MORE RELIABLE. Go to the YouTube search bar and type in "SIG problems". You'll get a couple of pages of videos of MAJOR problems from SIGs. Then try "HK Problems". Not a single video. HK pistols are just more reliable. SIG has gone downhill, they haven't been good competition for HK for over a decade. They have cut far too many corners and let their customers down.
faksen13: I liked the gun but not the sights for ipsc competition shooting. I bought a S&W M&P9 pro. Nowdays at least dawson presitin have sights for this gun.when i owned a P30 it was only tritium sights.
pmsbassplayer: You mention that you sold the gun. Did you not like it? Please give me your opinion on this gun.
vdub5818: Fwiw tapping shouldnt be necessary to remove the sear pin. If you are getting resistance then not everything is lined up right. Also be careful with removing the slide stop. One leg of the trigger return spring rests on the slide stop. Thats what actually stops the slide stop from being removed. Just lift up the leg of the TRS a bit when removing to avoid daging the TRS
urukang: The models with a deroosterer piece has a button/lever next to the rooster to the left. You can reach and handle it with your thumb with both hands.
urukang: Actually I'm right, because if you want to say in the German way, it's said as I proposed above. Since it's a German company and German gun, I propagate using the German pronunciation to call it "proper". Just like New York shouldn't be pronounced as Navh York even if that's how it sounds in other languages based on its written form. Check out any German videos about HK guns, and you'll hear. Here's a youtube link.: watch?v=FD2MwlQ0n_I
AlexTEK2: Mi friend you are wrong. Check their page
Frequently asked Questions
What is the proper way to pronounce Koch?
The English pronunciation is pronounced, “coke."
urukang: Actually... It is pronounced as Koh. And when you pronounce "h", it should feel like as if you were starting to let out a "k" as in "key". BUT, you don't pronounce "k" fully, you just tighten your throat as if you were about sound that. Easy, isn't it? You're looking for a hissing sound , kind of.
faksen13: @nwoecb I tried to reply earlyer but it did't work. This gun have LEM V1 trigger group = no decoker. It's Only the V3 trigger group who have deroosterer.
faksen13: @radioqrp And so did i after a while. S&W M&P9 want oil on the rails, not grease (grease glogs up).
radioqrp: nice video.. i realize you sold the P30, but for others reading this,: for me, Euro vs US instructions, I oil the top of the barrel lightly since it has friction here against the inside of the slide, under the top of the slide. For the rails i use a gun grease since these areas really need lube and the oil often evaporates and runs out of the gun.
vdub5818: @themeister technically it is pronounced coke not kotch or kock
faksen13: @rippspeed1 Sorry, i've sold the gun = no spring fotos from me.
rippspeed1: Hey Faksen13:
I have a P30L and I usually oil it and grease it with Lubriplate SFL-0 grease... It makes my USP and my P30L runs smoother.
Can you show a video of the actual spring of the for the V1 for me to compare springs... Thanx
faksen13: @JonPurdue7 :)
faksen13: @impalor1979 I dont know, it's a slow proses and hard to say when it happend. Gun have now close to 9000 round true it. It helps if you dry fire the gun, this help you learn the trigger feel without the "disturbaense" of the disscharge.
faksen13: @HecklerKoch45c Havendt tryed it, but it sounds like an idea. I have now receved the S&W M&P9 Pro, i imidiatly shoot bether with it. Mainly beacuse bether sights and sight length (warren tactical have stil not released their sights for P30 :( ). M&P is still new so it might improve, but i call it a draw when it come to trigger (M&P have mutch shorter reseth). M&P mags are flimsy compaired to HK mags. Overall feel is that HK P30 is "premium" gun, M&P is god quality (like MB and Toyota)
TheMeisterd84: Heckler und Koch not Kock
HK P30, small hands, V1 trigger group, issues and lubrication5
