    Default P2000 V3 Spring Questions

    I am trying to match the triggers between the three pistols, all V3: a P30l, P30, and P2000.

    The P2000 runs 1-2lbs heavier in DA and SA than the two P30s. I keep hammer springs stock for reliable ignition.

    The P2000 is stock, the P30s both have light FPBS springs and light TRS installed.

    On takedown and inspection the P2000 TRS looks identical to the P30s, but runs a pound heavier than the P30s which are identical. The P2000 also appears to have the “light” 209296 FPBS already installed, but the FPBS by feel, though, is notably heavier than the P30s which are identical.

    I am looking to get the lightest trigger return and firing pin block springs for my HK P2000 V3 DA/SA pistol, but am unsure of the correct part numbers. It is my understanding that the P2000 and P30 series use the same FPBS, but the TRS is different.

    I have examples of the light and heavy FPBS in the tool box. Is there a “lighter” FPBS?

    In summary: it appears the P2000 already has both a light TRS and light FPBS installed, but it does not match the P30s. Are there extra light versions of these springs I can swap, or is the difference just the nature of the platforms? The P30s both have over a thousand rounds through then while the P2000 is relatively new, so perhaps I am seeing mileage differences as well?

    Any advice appreciated.

    A P2000 TRS does not even look remotely close to a P30 TRS. The P30 TRS spring legs are in different orientation and longer. Unless you meant the shape of the coil.

    You can't compare the P2000 trigger pull to a P30 because these different TRSs weigh differently, even when the HS and FPBS are the same.

    The P2000 series already have the Light FPBS and TRS from factory. You could try a Match TRS. That will reduce the pull a bit. You could also try the aftermarket "enhanced" FPBS (from Lazy Wolf) but I would not recommend it if the P2000 is your carry piece. Other than that, you're stuck.

    What color is your P2000 hammer spring? Red?

    I just meant the coils and their spacing when looked at from above without removing them from the frame.

    Okay that is good to know. Just the information I was looking for. Thank you! Not interested in the Lazy Wolf parts.

    It is Blue which I think is 12#

    I swapped stock blue (12#?) spring for an 11# spring. DA/SA went from 9+/4.5 to 8/4#

    So the current trigger is: Stock (light) FPBS, Stock (light)TRS, Stock Sear spring, 11# hammer spring.

    Is the 11# considered reliable?

    It isn’t bad, I just wondered if I could get it equal to the pair of P30s. I guess the answer is no. I can live with it and I am sure it will improve some with a couple thousand rounds and dry fire.

    I have a nickel plated sear spring, but my experience with those in the P30 is that the improvement, if any, was not noticeable to me and the hassle of replacing it was significant. Do they make more of a difference in the P2000?

    #11 should be fine.
    The Match sear spring won't make a noticeable difference and won't effect trigger pull weight at all.

    Sorry for the necro post but this was the most relevant thread I could find on P2000 DA/SA trigger improvement. My question is, can you put the match trigger shoe in a P2000? I assume if you can you would have to shave the bottom like you do in a USPc. Also, does the TRS affect the DA pull weight? My P2k is for carry and I don't necessarily want to lighten the DA pull weight, but would want the Match TRS for lighter SA pull if possible.

    I advise against the Match TRS. It won't noticeably lighten (if at all) SA pull. More importantly, it tends to cause trigger return/reset hesitation or sluggishness.

    Never tried the Match trigger itself but I wonder if there is any over-travel in the P2000 because if there isn't, what's the point of having a Match trigger without the stop screw? In other words, if there is no over-travel then you can't use the stop screw and what good is the Match trigger without the stop screw? I am not talking about the Match trigger kit but just the trigger itself (you call it shoe).

    The Match TRS is the lightest factory spring there is, and it does affect the DA pull weight.

    Yeah I have heard the match trigger shoe is pointless on the USPc because there is no over travel to begin with. Probably the same on the P2k I would assume.
