    Default P30sk Compensated

    How bad of an idea would it be to buy a threaded barrel and compensator for my P30sk?

    If you love the p30sk, and will use the gun in various configurations, I say go for it. With a 13 round mag, neat little package......

    Though I might do a qd match weight, rather than threaded barrel and comp.

    Unless the threaded barrel will also facilitate a suppressor

    Or need the pic rail for a light......

    While the vp9 is a fine gun, if you like hammers the p30 series is great. I like my trio, and just got a qd match weight for the "L" to give it a try.

    I am a fan of hammer fired over striker. I hadn't considered the QD match weight. Has anyone weighed in on it's effectiveness?

    In response to the original post I don’t think that’s a bad idea but, I do have questions about what effects a comp would have on the reliability of the pistol. I’ve seen race guns that had tuning issues for reliability when a different format of comp was applied to the build. That being said, I still want to experiment with putting a comp on my pistol. I have hit a wall on the project, I cannot find a threaded CHF barrel for the P30SK. I want to stick with a polygonal rifling as to not sacrifice any velocity or accuracy. In reality I just want a threaded barrel to have the option of using a suppressor and to have the extra barrel length to utilize for as much velocity as I can get, I want that more than I want to add a comp.

    I'm also concerned about the reliability of said idea. For now it's on the backburner of projects, but if I ever get it done I'll update with how the reliability has been effected.

    @Lord_Othe_Dance it's a gimmick. It looks cool and has zero impact on reliability. It adds weight to the front which theoretically offsets muzzle flip. I don't find any reduction in flip on a full size P30L or USP with these type of "Match-style" weights. They do change the balance of the pistol which takes getting used to. Again, in my experience they look cool and don't hurt reliability so totally worth the $150. Also, you can use them with a threaded HK barrel or a non-threaded extended barrel by EFK or Jarvis.
    As far as a "compensator" consider that you can get EFK Firedragon barrels with different styles of porting in them to act as a comp. Not sure if Jarvis offers that. EFK barrels can also be had in stainless finish (contrast from the black gun) or all black. So for this project you have options worth looking at.

    Others can weigh in here, but I believe there is no impact on accuracy from polygonal rifling.
