    Default P30L vs. P30LS

    Hi Folks,

    I had a USP V1 back about 15yrs ago- sold it for a P7PSP.

    Now I have question regarding the P30L and P30LS- from my understanding the only difference is the safety lever, correct?

    That's the only difference I know of, though I don't own either.

    Hopefully an owner will chime in here.
    Yes, I still have roll pins. Message me for details.

    WTS: 3x14mm roll pins as used in many HK pistols. Other sizes also available.

    I've handled a P30, a P30S (P30 w/manual safety) and a P30LS (the latter 2 of the 3, I own). Technically, I've read there is a slight difference in how the trigger works between non-safety vs. safety P30-series handguns BUT you will 99% not even feel a difference. So basically, you could say the only difference is the manual safety.

    BTW, in case you're not aware, the P30S and P30LS safeties are IMO the best manual safeties of any 9mm handgun out there. It allows you to holster draw, thumb the safety to OFF, and fire in one smooth, unbroken motion. You can even keep your thumb riding the safety lever all the while. This is different from the USP or HK45 series where the safety lever also acts as a decocker (so if you tried to draw and fire with those pistols, you would run into a potential problem of thumbing the lever down too far and decocking/prevent firing). This is the only handgun I feel comfortable keeping holstered with safety ON for ease of use in a stressful situation.

    Thank you! That is a good overview. I have a FN P35/Browning HP in SA now so that helps.
