H&K quality shines in my 9mm p2000. Like the HK45c the quality is outstanding and I have had zero issues. H&K's true ambi platforms provide for the best combat firearms given the worse of scenarios (strong arm injured for example). Accurate, tough, reliable and proven you can't go wrong with H&K. No Compromise. I have the LEM trigger which I also have on my 45 compact. If I could only get the glock trigger in the H&K or a bobbed hammer (second strike ability) on a Glock...either way would win me over 100%

Joseph P. from Charlotte, NC on Sat, 13 Dec 2014

Put 200 rounds through the 9mm. I found the trigger pull a little long, and the recoil though better than most still doesn't compare to my Smith and Wesson M&P. Definitely a quality firearm, but I find the M&P a better gun, especially at less money.

Samuel H. from Salt Lake City, UT on Sun, 9 Nov 2014

I just bought an HK P2000SK in 9mm. It's high ratings and glowing reviews are well deserved. Took it to the range right out of the box and put 100 rounds through it with not even a hint of a hiccup. It performed flawlessly and is EXTREMELY accurate. I carry this weapon and it conceals great. Love this gun and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a dependable, accurate quality CCW.

Lawrence I. from Indianapolis, IN on Tue, 26 Aug 2014

I bought the .40 version of the P2K. I didn't know much about the ammo as this is my 1st semi-auto. I cleaned the weapon before going to the range. I had Federal, Winchester, Remington, DPX, PMC, Monarch ammo, all in different grains. I went to the range yesterday and fired over 250 rounds and never expereienced any negatives. This gun is incredible. Very negligible kick and the feel is very natural to my hand. The heavier grain seems to have a bit more kick but I am stoked now! I will be hitting the range often. Thanks for the reviews which helped me make my decision!

Which rail does H&K use on the P2000 Weaver or Picatinny?

Seth M. from Hazelwood, MO on Sun, 5 Aug 2012

I have had the P2000SK pistol in .40 (V3) for about a year and a half now which I carry off duty and I love it more everytime I shoot it. I just had to requalify with it last week and it was again flawless. The most accurate pistol I have ever shot including full sized pistols and I have NEVER had a malfunction with it. The qualifying distance isn't very far but even at 15feet all my shots are going into the same hole in the target. I carry it with Federal Hydrashock ammo but have fired even the cheapest practice ammo I can find and have never had an issue with anything. The only extra on the pistol are the night sites that came standard with the police discount through the dealer. I have owned Berettas, Sigs, Smiths, and fired others including Glocks and the price for this HK was well worth it. I have seen it listed for as low as $660 for nonpolice. If anyone would like to know where to get it at that price let me know. I have never shot the the LEM trigger but I have absolutely no complaints with the V3.

Guy S. from Raleigh, NC on Wed, 18 Jul 2012

I've been carrying this weapon as my concealed carry gun for about 2 years. I couldn't find any dealers around that carried the SK in stock, so I never even got to handle one before I made the leap of faith and purchased it. However, since my bedside gun is an HK USP FS .45 w/ ULT, and after 6500+ rounds through it and zero FTF's, I was confident that it would be another great HK gun. I was right. I have about 1800+ rounds through this weapon, a 40S&W V3 DA/SA model. I carry it inside the waistband in a Don Hume and have never had any issues of any type with it. The only way to practice FTF drills is to put a snap-cap in the mag as I can't seem to get it to malfunction, regardless of the ammo I use. Accuracy is outstanding for such a short barrel, even when double-tapping from the draw. Sure, it's a pricey weapon, but we all know the old sayings. I was bend on buying a Glock until the two that I fired both FTF'd on me, 7 times in 150 rounds, clean, with both new "out of the wrapper" and used mags. Perhaps the third time's a charm, but I wasn't willing to bet my life on it. However, no reliability issues with any of my HK's thus far. I'd like to think that I am lucky, but after reading up on just about every HK weapon out there, reliability seems to be the standard. Of the 4 people that have fired my weapon, all 4 have purchased the exact same gun. Two of which while firing a Glock 27 for comparison when they fired mine. I highly recommend the V3 hammered/decocker version although I've yet to fire the LEM version. Call me old fashion but, as a Soldier, I like having a hammer and the trigger pull that's associated with it. Old habits, I guess. Bottom line: superb reliability, well above average accuracy, and just a darn sexy looking weapon. I'm 6'2", and it's a bit small for my large hands, but it's the only concealable, hammered auto that I could find that would meet my personal requirement for reliability (sorry Glock, build a better weapon and we'll try again). Besides, practice makes perfect, and I'll use any excuse I can think of to find a reason to practice. Only one drawback- after firing my weapon, my wife now insists that I buy her one to replace her 2" ported .357 mag revolver that she carries. C'mon, tax return!

Donald M. from Saint George, UT on Sun, 10 Jun 2012

my father carries a p2000 .40 lem dao. i have taken his weaopn with me to the range many times, and i find that the lem trigger has too much travel in it. it is a really light, but takes to long to brake. this makes follow on shots difficult to place accurately. the weapon feels great in my hand, but i really dont care for the lem trigger

Mike V. from Plainfield, NJ on Tue, 15 May 2012

I bought my first H&K a P2000sk .40 several weeks ago and I just oredered one in 9mm to have something cheaper for practice. I was skeptical of HK at first but after a few weeks with my sk I don't have much need for a full size weapon any longer. I have become just as accurate with the sk in rapid fire as with my full size Beretta (probably just practice but I really love the HK). It is hard to explain but it just feels "good". I point and it goes pow. Very natural, very easy. The dual recoil spring does a good job of managing the .40 recoil. It's still a good snap but it is not difficult to control, and is more manageable than the S&W M&P compact I compared it too. I'll let you know in a week how the 9mm version compares. Compared to most handguns the H&K magazine realease is a bit different but it soon became totally natural. I'm right handed and use the traditional thumb push on the left side to release the magazine but it seems it would be pretty easy to use middle finger to work the magazine release on the right side. The slide release works perfectly. I can easily thumb the slide closed with one hand and I have never felt I could push it up when firing to cause the slide to lock open prematurely. The only negative is that my pinkie gets a bit pinched by the magazine with the pinkie extension after a few hundred rounds. I don't even notice it until I've shot 150+ and then it gets noticable. Basically it feels nice and tight when assembing after cleaning and when firing. Like a precision instrument. Just a quality weapon.

Eugene C. from Presque Isle, WI on Mon, 30 Apr 2012

Recently purchased the HK in .357 Sig, and have gone twice to the range with it. Absolutely love it, feel bad for my Sig Arms P229R, which used to be my favorite gun. Flawless in every way. Nice pop to let you know it's getting the job done, but not bad by any means. Very good looking in person. If looking for something small, but with bite, and have the means for the price, I highly recommend the HK. It's been said before, but you get what you pay for...

Trent C. from Colorado Springs, CO on Sat, 18 Feb 2012

Hi Hitttommy, Which model Trijicon sights fit this gun, it's n ot listed in their catalog. I Bought this for my wife, she sometimes lets me shoot it if I am real good and let her shoot my 3" ultra Raptor, the gun would be super with those nightsights. Thanks for your help. Oh by the way for the guy who said the gun was too pricey. (I bought a CZ 2075 in .40 for about $250 less than this gun, wouldn't eat any hollowpoints. Had it back to the factory 3 times and ended up trading it in on another HK, loosing another $75.00 on it.) Moral of the story you get what you pay for with HK! What's total reliabilty and confidence as well as your life worth? nuf said!

Gregory Q. from Asbury, NJ on Fri, 17 Feb 2012

Hi, I don't mean to jump topics but I am new to the site. I own the P2000 357 sig. and I can't say enough how pleased I am with the purchase. I put on the trijicon night sights and it is great addition. I shoot in an inside range and the lighting is pretty bad. I noticed that I became more accurate with the sights. I do recomend you take it to a reputable gunsmith because the gunsmith at the store I bought it at eye-balled the sights on. I had to take it to another gunsmith to get it on using a micrometer.

Jerry H. from Houston, MS on Thu, 16 Feb 2012

If you plan to wear the P2000 or the P2000sk concealed, Here's a great value that you can wear a few different ways...even with your shirt tucked, with no printing....I prefer this to my much pricier Don Hume Leather Custom, and wear it quite a bit more often... just go to activeprogear.com , and search for the ITP tuckable J-hook concealment holster any problems and you can just PM me. a great value and a great little holster

Bart H. from Boynton Beach, FL on Mon, 6 Feb 2012

OK...so it delivered as promised. Accurate, smooth, and reliable. I'm taking a little bit of time getting used to the trigger from a 1911, but it's well worth every penny.

Seth M. from Hazelwood, MO on Thu, 28 Jul 2011

One more thing that I was just reminded about...yes the gun is expensive but well worth it. The best price I found for the P2000sk was about $725 at a gun shop. I contacted HK dealer and found they have discounted price for Law Enforcement. So I got it for $670 which included a 3rd magazine and night sites for free. If I wanted to I could turn around and sell it for much more but I will be keeping this for a long time.

Willie W. from DPO, AE on Thu, 28 Jul 2011

AWSOME!!! i have the SA/DA with decocker. the gun is light, ergonomic, reliable. feeds anything i put thru it. itt ambidexterous, has the interchangeable backstraps. the DA trigger pull is long, hard and creepy, and the break kinda sneakes up on you, nothing i cant live with. the SA pull is decent with a little creep before the break, buts its okay. other than that my only complaint is the takedown of the slide, im not a big fan of the pins thru the slide, and the trigger parts are a little fumbly to put back together. guess nothing is as easy as a glock. other than that i am very happy with this gun. i have over 200 rds thru it with no problems. its light, handles well is a very acurate 9mm considering the barrel length. and can be hidden easily. the price is high, even more so cause i have the night sights on it. if you dont want to spend $800+ get a glock 19 or 23.

Earl G. from Cleveland, OH on Tue, 5 Jul 2011

I bought a P2000sk used from a local dealer. I loved the gun, it felt comfortable, shot great, accurate but it would jam every 150-200 rounds. At first I blamed it on a limp wrist but I corrected that with a change of grip but it still jammed. I ran about 1000 rounds (mult. manufactures) through it It still jammed no matter what I did. I ended up turning it back in since it had a 30 day warrenty and it was getting close to the end. I consulted the factory mult. times but being a used gun they would not service it. I lost confidence in the gun, after reading the other reviews it sounds like mine was the exception to the rule. I was just woundering how many others were jamming up? PS I ended up buying a glock 23, I like the HK better but I have not had a jam from my glock yet! and I saved a couple of hundred bucks.

Herbert N. from Wahoo, NE on Sun, 3 Jul 2011

Very satisfying. I got this gun to replace my para-ordnance, which had a catastrophic failure. Qualified with it the first try, shoots encredibly smooth. Trigger reset is a little long, but can be adjusted down to almost nothing(although I cant mess with the factory settings for liability reasons). All in all, great! Super comfortable to carry off-duty in a neoprene itwb holster. Never had any malfunctions, and i have put 600 rounds of everything but subsonic ammo through it.

HK P2000 Questions & Comments

Walter C. from Perryville, MD on Thu, 2 Apr 2015

I really like this pistol. I was talking to a firearms instructor who teaches at a federal facility and he had a few comments about it, especially with the LEM trigger. He said, he personally liked it, but it wasn't his personal favorite. He further stated it to be everything he thought it would be. Accurate, ergonomically correct and above extremely reliable. He also said this. It was a difficult weapon to teach to those with little to no prior handgun experience. Food for thought for those who are looking at a first handgun and are attracted to H&K quality/ reputation and are willing to pay for it.

Robin O. from Odessa, FL on Mon, 18 Nov 2013

I bought the HK P30 in 9mm and after running 50 rounds through it I have to say its one of the finest guns I have ever shot-en, I am going out thursday and picking up the P2000 SK. For the record I have had Seyer,Kahr,Springfield XD, and a glock. HK for me NO COMPROMISE

Bart H. from Boynton Beach, FL on Mon, 17 Dec 2012

Hey, just got word from someone on the federal side that the slides are breaking in the front where the recoil spring rod goes through the slide's face. (Basically the lower portion breaks off. They are using the hot 155 grain loads. Just a heads up for everyone...

Bart H. from Boynton Beach, FL on Wed, 31 Oct 2012

For those trying to pick between the HK and the Glock, I choose the P-2000. Mine in .40 is much more accurate and easier to shoot. Moreover, there is no trigger safety to shred up my trigger finger in long shooting sessions.

Seth M. from Hazelwood, MO on Tue, 9 Oct 2012

I wont repeat the steps for taking down this pistol but I'll just emphasize that it is VERY easy and fast. I have faith that anyone who has done it before can strip this pistol in under 3 seconds. Couldnt be easier. And I own the subcompact which is as large as I'd want to go for concealment so I cant comment on the P2000.

Bart H. from Boynton Beach, FL on Tue, 9 Oct 2012

I personally love my P-2000 (standard compact size). It is concealable enough to go on an ankle holster and stay concealed under my jeans or suit pants leg. I cannot say enough good things about the gun. AS for the take down...very easy. JUst unload, pull back the slide to the takedown cutout and push the slive release lever out from the right side to the left. One the slide release was out, the slide comes right off. I hope that helps...

Donald M. from Saint George, UT on Sun, 29 Jul 2012

save yourself alot of money and buy a glock!!!!!!!!

Edward D. from Huntingburg, IN on Sun, 1 Jul 2012

fired first 60 rounds yesterday, .357 sig. I like it so far.

Bart H. from Boynton Beach, FL on Sat, 31 Mar 2012

The P-2000 doesn't have a manual safety. It uses a passive firing pin block that holds the firing pin captive until the trigger is pulled. The main difference in the P2000 and the USP Compact is the interchangeable backstrap. it's a little more compact (the P-2000) and the P-2000 is completely ambidexterous. There are some other diferences as well. The P-2000 decocker for the traditional double action is mounted on the back of the frame, next to and below the hammer. The USP can be carried cocked and locked like a 1911. Overall, I like the P-2000 with the double action only LEM trigger. Hope it helps/

Louis A. from Williams, AZ on Fri, 30 Mar 2012

Hey guys... a quick question. What type of safety does this gun have? And are there any big differences between the P2K and a compact USP? Thanks for the help.

Earl J. from Trinity, NC on Mon, 20 Feb 2012

Thank you bcjwriter and str8shooter. That was a quick response. These are just my thoughts... The Glocks, for some reason, to me, just didn't feel comfortable enough to purchase one, plus I'm not crazy about the safety on the trigger either. The .45 GAP (I think it was) held nice but made me scared because of being so tiny, I'm thinking the recoil would our wrists. My wife just had carpal tunnel surgery performed last year and I wouldn't want a couple rounds to irritate that. I held the Spring. XD, pictures looked like it held nice, but when I picked it up, it felt like I was holding a rough cut 2x4. I quickly set it back on the table. An affordable pistol which felt nice was the Taurus 24/7, in the .40 cal. Felt like a glove but couldn't swing the greenbacks at the time. Oh, I hope the P- 30 comes out quick. I...LIKE...THE...LOOKS...OF...THAT..., NICE! HK USP spoiled me, as I pulled the slide back, I think I could have done it with my teeth. All the options and write ups from this website, have drawn me to this gun...now I'm just waiting for a good deal to pop up. The USP .45 was huge in my hand, so I'll keep my eye out for the P2000. This gun will also be for home protection and for my wife to use...I've also heard the recoil is minimum on the HK's. Thanks again.

Bart H. from Boynton Beach, FL on Mon, 20 Feb 2012

dude/w/questions Mine actually came with four different backstraps. It's ergonomics are better than my Glock (hate to say it...) and the grip is much more comfortable. It is about as user-friendly as they get. It you're really concerned, the P-30 should be coming out soon, and not only is the backstrap have different inserts, so do the side of the grip. Another good idea for small handed people are the 1911-type pistol.

Seth M. from Hazelwood, MO on Mon, 20 Feb 2012

Yes, the grip on the P2000 has 2 different sizes as it has 2 removable backstraps to find a more comfortable feel. I have the P2000SK so I'm not sure how the fullsize P2000's grip compares to the USP but the P2000SK seems to be a bit smaller than the USP.

Earl J. from Trinity, NC on Mon, 20 Feb 2012

Just a quick question. I have smaller hands and am having difficulty finding a pistol with comfortable ergonomics. Is there a difference between the full size USP and this P2000, with respect to the grip?

Bart H. from Boynton Beach, FL on Mon, 20 Feb 2012

str8shooter, I bought a P-2000 law enforcement setup as well. The sights are Meprolights. They are made in Israel (or at least used to be), but distributed by Kimber. I prefer them to trijicon only because the white plastic outline around the tritium is easier to pick up, and give a better 3-dot sight picture. They're also cheaper than trijicon.

Seth M. from Hazelwood, MO on Mon, 20 Feb 2012

I also have night sights on my P2000SK .40. I ordered it directly from an HK dealer at a law enforcement price and it came with the night sights at no additional charge without me even knowing they were going to put them on. I'm not sure what brnad they are but they say "TRU DOT" on the rear sight. Sorry I couldnt be more help but there are some out there that will fit.

Sorry for the delay. It doesn't realy say on the package but it has a sticker that says HK P2000 3 dot night sight set. It cost $139.00. I hope this helps.

Bart H. from Boynton Beach, FL on Mon, 30 Jan 2012

Well, I just bought my P-2000 with the LEM trigger. I am looking forward to carrying it. Does anyone out there have any info on holsters for it and what they have found as good holsters, or bad. Also any other feedback would be great. Thanks

Bart H. from Boynton Beach, FL on Sun, 18 Dec 2011

For those who think the HK is too expensive, ask yourself how much your life is worth, and spend accordingly. If one weapon is the best for you, go with it. I know the HK is expensive, but it shoots extremely well with hot .40's.
