    Default P30 accidental decocker discharge

    I own a HK P30, which had an accidental discharge. I removed a partially loaded magazine. A cartridge remained in the chamber with the hammer cocked. I was going to unload the bullet from the chamber by first pressing the decocker and then racking the slide to eject the shell from the chamber. Upon pressing the decocker, the hammer fell and the gun discharged. The trigger was never touched. Fortunately, no one was hurt.

    Needless to say, this should not have occurred and the gun is going to be returned for inspection and repair.

    If it does turn out to be a mechanical/materials problem, it is indeed disturbing. FWIW, a while back, I was involved in a thread where I stated that I decock my P30, USP9 by using my weak hand thumb to depress the decocker and then using my strong hand thumb to let the hammer ease down - an extra layer of "protection" from what you describe as having happened to you.

    Please keep us posted as to what HK finds.

    One more reason to never point a gun at something you are not willing to destroy. Glad no one was hurt.

    yikes. The hammer fall with the decocker did make me nervous for a while when my P30sk was new, but I got over it. Until now.

    I am at loss with this one. Even if a decocker dropped the hammer in a wrong way, wouldn't a firing pin block prevent gun discharging?

    Guess I am too paranoid, never trust the decocker on any weapon. Always rack the slide to eject a round in the chamber.

    I assume it's a stock gun with no work done? I would have assumed the fpb would have kept it from going off. Glad no one was hurt.

    Some experts may chime in, but is the part called the "catch" that should have prevented this?

    That is terrifying. I use my decocker quite often on my USPs and HK45C.

    Definitely a loud reminder to follow all rules of basic firearms safety.
