I personally have only shot the gun and removed slide 3 times, and the lever 2 to look at it and try to figure out the issue. Love this gun helluva shooter
and as for the ambi slide stop lever, should be ok how it hangs low. My P2000 does this, shoots fine.
It seems that a lot of sarcasm detectors failed in this thread, and for it to go on for four pages must make for a record. Your gun is fine. Go out and have fun with it.
Thanks for the above comment, being new to these guns, I should not have taken it out( I guess), but was trying to pin point a problem. I was not sure if he was being serious of if it was sarcasm, but figured it out. I did not pry and tear anything up, I was gentle and took my time after reading how to do it.
Maybe I am stupid, but what does the whole captive thing even mean? When my gun was assembled(over seas) at first it was taken back apart by hk(of columbus) in order to installl the v1 trigger spring which would have already made it not captive, unless they re-captivated it(if this is even possible). If I need to replace the spring I will, but just dont want to do any harm or have any issues
It means you don't remove the slide release completely (off the frame) in order to field strip it, like the USP series. Push it out far enough so you can see the red bar on the slide release, then stop.
HK: No, that does not mean Hong Kong
EDIT NVM. I totally forgot the p30 and HK45s are slightly different. I take back a bit what I said about sarcasm. Not all replies by gtm were smart-alec. About the rattling slide release on the breach side, I think this is fine. About the other things, I won't comment further since I did forget the p30s strip slightly differently from the HK45s, and I was only thinking of the HK45 at the time.
