    Default New 17 Round VP9/P30 Mags

    Hey Guys ,
    I picked up a new P30L that came with the new 17 round VP9/P30 Mags .
    For the pics the 17 rounder on the left and the 15 rounder is on the right.

    The mag bodies are the same except for the two extra holes.

    Here is the spring assembly. as you can see the spring is a bit thinner on the 17 rounder.
    The biggest differences are that the mag follower and locking plate have been cut down.

    Here is a close up of the follower and the locking plate

    Also there is a slight thickness difference in the base plate.

    Edit: The thicker base plate is the 17 rounder.

    Hope this helps for everyone who was wondering.

    This is great but what I’m really wondering is where did you find a P30L!?!? Lol

    If the mag bodies are the same, I assume that HK will eventually sell upgrade kits (follower, base plate) to the public.

    Where and whom I got it from is top secret, but I will tell you that I have had it on order for about 9 months. I am really happy it is here!!!

    Thinner spring and one less coil. I smell compromise.

    I hope they keep offering the thicker spring/15 round magazine parts. A thinner spring with wimpier follower doesn’t interest me.

    I don’t see it as a compromise, most every other manufacturer reliably gets 17-19 rounds from the same sized magazine. HK is just catching up.
