Our Assessment: From HK’s website, “A recent HK pistol design, the P30 is a modern police and security pistol that combines function and safety. Ergonomic features include a special grip frame with interchangeable backstrap inserts and lateral plates, allowing the pistol to be individually adapted to any user. Ambidextrous controls include dual slide releases and magazine release levers. Extensively tested, the P30 has already been adopted by several European police agencies. Excellent weight and balance make the P30 naturally pointable, easy to control, and accurate to shoot. An open notch rear sight with luminous (non-radioactive) contrast points allows for fast and accurate target acquisition, even under poor lighting conditions. During a 2010 endurance test, a randomly selected P30 test pistol fired more than 91,000 rounds without any major component failures.”. This is a fantastic pistol for carry or home defense. This pistol comes equipped with Wilson Combat sights, Parker Mountain Machine compensator, and Gray Guns short reset kit. With a comfortable, modular grip, ambidextrous controls, night sights, and HK quality, you can’t go wrong with one of the finest modern pistols made. Please see our pictures and good luck!
