    Default New to HK

    Hi!

    I recently picked up my HK P30 V1, I've been running federal 124gr through the firearm just for the range. I'm extremely happy with my new pistol. Only complaint I have would be the reset. I have taken it to some gunsmiths in my local area and they all have told me the same thing that they cannot do anything with the trigger reset. Was wondering if there is a wizard gunsmith out there that can help me shorten the reset of this amazing pistol.
    Also, I've heard the rumor that there is a break in period for these pistols just wondering if that was true. Yes, I've read the manual and understand it is made for 9mm NATO rounds. Was wondering after the break in period if I can look at putting 115gr for the range, and 147gr for carry.

    Thanks!

    1. What is wrong with the reset? You did not describe the problem.
    2. For any modern firearm, there is a 300-500 round break in period.i would shoot a variety of ammo through it during this time period to see how it functions.

    The latest ballistics testing for bullet projectile weights and bullet design indicate that 135-147 grain 9mm is best for self defense applications.

    1. The reset is too long for my liking. I wanted to hopefully shorten up by half of what it takes to reset the trigger.

    2. Ok, was just wondering. I've probably put a little over 500 rounds down range at this time. Was just wondering if after this breaking period if I can start putting 115gr down range at this time, but I will probably just end up sticking to 124gr for plinking. But will take the advice on the variety of ammunition at this point to see how the pistol performs with each.

    Thanks for the info! 😁

    1. If you want a short reset, buy a VP9.
    2. You should have no issue with 115 grain, I buy it all the time as it seems more common than 124 grain on the market.
    3. All modern firearms have a break-in period. Buy it. Strip it down and inspect it. Oil/lube it. Shoot it for a couple hundred rounds. Then carry it.

    I agree with this. I have the VP9 and the reset is short and shoots great with 115 which is what is pretty common down my way.
