I Might Be Wrong: 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
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.
faksen13: @Briggs1700 I've tried some mags true Sig P226 Blackwater Tactical (with
SRT trigger) - it's a bether gun than HK P30.
f0xmuld3r: Military shooting and maybe later some action shooting as they call it
here. I'm going to buy a laser for it though, just for fun...
AlexTEK2: Mi friend you are wrong. Check their page Frequently asked Questions What
is the proper way to pronounce Koch? The English pronunciation is
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
letterpool: did you mark ALL of your bullets red and white???
TheMeisterd84: Heckler und Koch not Kock
faksen13: @radioqrp And so did i after a while. S&W M&P9 want oil on the rails, not
grease (grease glogs up).
Eric EDF Knives: I would not oil the locking surface as the american instruktion say's. Its
a german weapon, If the germans want it to be oilt they would surley
mentiont it I gues.
datzitteezy: I own a p30L. Only have 2 mags though. I can't find magazines anywhere. All
websties are soldout.
faksen13: I bought mine tru the dealer who gets his true Midway. I have 6. They are
of wery high quality, the same you can say about mag-springs. My mags have
been loaded since february, and the springs are still very good. Base pad
is some sort of soft plastik or rubber and works well droped on concret.
Disassembly/assembly is foolprof, when i say so you can trust it. They are
easy to clean with a Arredondo mag brush when droped in sand.
cskillem13: have had my P30L since last christmas, excellent weapon. great performance.
the only thing i dont like is the price, around $900. and it has no safety
unless you count the double trigger.
chazeyboy: its Heckler and Koch, not Heckler and KOCK.
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
clap5: If by the "Locking surface" you mean the "barrel hood" then the awnser is
yes. There is metal on metal contact when the slide moves rearward. I lub
any contact points.
ProudGunOwnerUS: No, it is pronounced like Koch.
Michael Cahoon: I appreciate anyone taking time to attempt to educate folks. I am trying to
decide between the HK P30 and Springfield XD-M 9mm. I have small hands and
the P30 felt perfect when I held it. The XD had larger grip but the angle
of the butt was not right and felt same as Glock. Thank you for your effort
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: Je bent NL's. ik heft ein NL vriendin, en 2 kindere. We bent 2 - 4 keer pr
jjaar in NL, Geldermalsen. What vil you use the HK P30L fore. It is hard to
shoot wery good with beacuse the weight is only 740 gram with mag. I wil
probably buy a CZ SP-01 Shadow for IPSC shooting, it weight about 1187
gram. I tryed it and shoot a lot beter with heavy guns (i also tryed
Tanfoglio and Spinx). But fore Police work its very good.
Hugo Bauknight: Actually, It is pronounced "coke".
faksen13: I have startet to use grease in the rail and on the 4 studs on frame. Oil
dries out in about 100 rounds = the gun runs dry. It dont compromise
realiability but it ads wear. A "dry" gun is good for service weapon. But
for a competition gun it's only ads wear. I have startet to put 1 drop of
oil on locking surface, wear on finish told me it neded oil. The gun have
in 6 months run 4000+ rounds. No problems without, marking of ammo and
pushing slide stop (twice) into battery with a 2 hand grip.
f0xmuld3r: Hey, isn't this actually a P30"L" ?
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
faksen13: @JonPurdue7 :)
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
HecklerKoch45c: you are supposed to drop the mag with your middle finger not your shooting
finger. that way you dont have to change your grip
sharpraiderbrown: it is pronounced like "rooster"......rooster
Briggs1700: Still happy with the P30? considering the SIG P226/SP2022 and the FNP9
piffpete420: And its alot more than the HK
Briggs1700: @faksen13: You have the SIG P226 Blackwater i norge? I've been looking
around to get it it's impossible in BE. Any online available i norge?
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
pmsbassplayer: You mention that you sold the gun. Did you not like it? Please give me your
opinion on this gun.
nwoecb: How do you derooster the hammer?
bigtwo1952: Good H&K video...I would follow the European directions for oiling the
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.
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
gonga05: Good video
faksen13: Norwegian police have bought Insight Tec MX3 (light) and MX6 (light and
faksen13: No, the White is defenently not in use anymore on reloads (it's the culprit
for gluing the firing pin). I alter the marking on my ammo so it's easy to
find mine emtys and keep track of nr of reloads.
faksen13: By the way, Glock 17 is still in use in Norwegian Police - Delta (crack
Anti terror force) stil use it and have no plans to shift to HK P30 (L).
f0xmuld3r: Ok, thanks. I ordered a P30L myself. will get it maybe next week. Can you
maybe make a video on how to change the grips & back? I understand that
there is some locking mechanism to lock the gun?
faksen13: You can now get this gun with a safety lever, the product name is than P30S
faksen13: Yes i do. And i have startet to use 1 drop of oil, the finish show me it
faksen13: @rippspeed1 Sorry, i've sold the gun = no spring fotos from me.
faksen13: I Have allredy made some rawfilm for a more torough presentation of my HK
P30. But i have no time to edit it. Changing grip is a 5 min work. You need
a 3 mm punch (or similar) to push the pin out from de heel of the grip,
slide the backstrap off and the side panels off. The pistol comes with the
medium grip innstalled and the small and large grip in the box.
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)
Pistolero Jesse: I like how you said the correct position for the mag release. I lol'd.
Alkatraz415: Can't wait to get a P30l 9mm. Thanks for the video.
