    The rail system looks updated as well?

    You do not see the frame differences?

    Yes, I was curious about any internal/mechanical differences

    I was referring to the cosmetic differences. The rail is different. And, the trigger guard is shaped like the P2000sk, instead. Personally, I like the 90 degree angle on the US trigger guard of the P2000/USPc 9mm better.

    I agree, cutting the trigger guard back at an angle reduces it's usefulness, using gloves may prove difficult since there is less room inside the trigger guard.

    I owned one for a bit. It was from a cancelled Saudi contract from 2007 I think. Only difference between these and the US guns were the rail and the magazine, which was skinnier than standard P2000/USP9C. Mine came with two 16 round elephant foot 9mm mags. Couldn’t find anymore mags anywhere and also couldn’t find any 13 round mags either, although I had been told they did exist. USP9C mags didn’t fit. It was an amazing shooter (I put 32 rounds total through mine) but as it was super rare in the US, I ended up selling it to someone who would enjoy it more than me (I didn’t want to shoot it anymore....). All the internals were the same as US guns from what I could tell and the guns came factory V1 light LEM. The trigger was really nice.

    Cheers

    GPM P2000 was my first HK. It differs from US version in frame. US version has universal rail and uses USPc magazines. When HK made P2000 they used narrower magazines to allow for slimmer grip. But when they wanted to export P2000 to USA they faced problem of designing yet another 10rd magazine (it was while AWB was still in force). Finally HK decided to use existing 10rd USPc magazines and redesigned frame for US P2000. Funny enough P2000SK was supposedly same for both markets, but early GPM P2000SK also differ (in magwell only) and takes GPM P2000 magazines, but not USPc or later P30 series magazines. Magwell has special ribs that allow to use GPM P2000 mags without them being too loose, but at same time prevent use of wider USPc style magazines. Later also GPM 2000SK got smooth sided magwell like US version.

    Interesting variation of a fine pistol. First I've heard of these.

    If you can find them it’s more like $200-$250+. And that’s only when a unicorn $hits a rainbow!

    It’s the best fitting grip I’ve ever felt in a pistol.
