    Default VP9 vs. P30

    New to forums...and shooting...and HK! Learning still but loving it. I have questions and want input from others.

    Been shooting the P30. Love the grip, fits my small hands perfectly, like the way it fires. I've adjusted to the long trigger pull.

    My question is how does the trigger pull on the VP9 compare to the P30? Shorter I'm sure but want thoughts from those who have shot both. I could get my own P30 and just run with it but figure the household doesn't need 2 of the same exact gun, I want my own piece, and why not have a new "different" gun?!

    Thanks!

    Completely different as hammer vs striker. Best way, rent one and try it.

    Should have added to my original post...no place to rent around here and I don't know anybody with a VP9 to try or I would just do that. In the meantime just trying to get real world comparisons from the folks who have shot both. Any help there is much appreciated!

    I own both, striker shorter take up, hits wall about half way back, then bang. Reset is shorter on VP9. An LEM trigger is similar, break is still farther back than striker fired HKs.

    VP9 with a Lobos trigger is a dream. Game changer for me. I sold both of my P30s after that. If you are in or near Northern Utah you can shoot mine.

    Both of them will feel close to the same in your hand, which... Is feeling awesome.
    Both of them point the same, which is practically right on target.
    Both of them sight the same, if they both have the same sights.
    Both 9f them recoil about the same, tho I myself tend to feel it a bit more in a hammer fire than in a striker fire, but the barrel is gonna jump about the same, if your shooting the same ammo in both.
    Pulling the trigger. It's like the difference between night and day!!!
    Vp9, you are pretty much just tilting a plastic lever back about half an inch. Give or take. That's about what it feels like. Then you hit the wall. Snap your fingers. That's about twice the pressure it takes to put the trigger past the wall and into the break.
    Reset is about 1/8 of an inch or so.
    AMAZING trigger on the VP9. That's why it's always rated in the top ten best striker triggers 😉
    Almost nothing like the p30 trigger whatsoever.

    Which P30s are you shooting? LEM or DA/SA?

    I like the trigger on my VP9s much more than my P30sk. In SA the P30sk trigger certainly isn't terrible, but it's not as fluid and effortless as the VP9 trigger IMO. When shooting the VP9, I hardly even notice I'm pulling a trigger. The trigger squeeze is a much more conscious act shooting the P30sk. I can barely even keep it on the paper in DA.

    If you love the P30, chances are you'll love the VP9 as well. The P30 and VP9 are two different shooters for sure. You can't go wrong by owning and enjoying both.

    I like them both so much that I have 3 VP's and 2 P30's. Both different but use same mags and fun to shoot.
