In fact, it’s only 1/10 of an inch shorter than that model GLOCK and just a tad wider if you include its much larger slide release. The frame and grip are H&Ks usual fiber re-enforced polymer, and everything looks sharp, from the standard accessory rail to the checkering on the front of the trigger guard to its 0h-so-comfortable grip. Technically speaking, the P30 is more or less the classic link-less Browning tilting barrel action, just like the H&K P2000 before it. If it isn’t broke, there’s really no reason to even think about fixing it.The slide (which, by the way, is machined from one solid billet of steel) and any important metal parts wear H&Ks proprietary “Hostile Environment” finish.It’s essentially a black oxide coating and it’s resistant to just about everything up to and including 5 megaton airbursts, if H&Ks website is to be believed. Caliber-wise, you can get it in 9x19mm or .40 Smith and Wesson.You can chose a SA/DA trigger, a DAO law enforcement trigger, a manual ambidextrous safety, spurred or bobbed hammer, a built in gunlock, and even a RFID chip if you’re either European or too lazy to actually read off the pistols model name, information and serial number.
With a fully loaded magazine, the balance was darned close to perfect.The culprit was a bulged barrel due to a round being fired after a squib became lodged.The pistol was sent back for warranty work, the barrel was replaced, and the owner was quite happy that he still had his shooting hand.This allowed me to put a large, somewhat bulkier panel on the right side of the grip to fit the concave shape of my particular palm profile and a flat panel on the other side to get maximum grip with my very high thumbs-up shooting style.
Not only are they modular, but the panels are textured quite aggressively.
Regardless of the set-up you chose, the heater comes with H&Ks outstanding 3.86’’ polygonal rifled barrel which is supposed to increase muzzle velocity and barrel life.
