    Default P30 slide to frame fit?

    Is it typical for a P30 to have a fairly sloppy slide to frame fit? I guess with such short frame rails it's expected, but I want to make sure it's typical - I'm used to guns with zero movement between the slide and frame.

    HKs are generally tight weapons, can you post a pic?

    It doesn't fit like a 1911, but its fairly snug for a polymer production pistol. There will be a little more movement in the front than in the back.

    The slide shouldn't rattle when you shake the gun while it's in lockup, and the barrel shouldn't wiggle when you try to move it.

    Other than that I don't know.

    It's not something a picture would show. It doesn't rattle from shaking, but if I put one hand on the frame and one on the slide I can move it, both up and down and side to side. Given that it's more in the front than in the back like xskylitox said, I guess this is typical.

    My P30 and P30L are very tight. However, my USP45T has some slide/frame play like your P30.

    No slop on mine either. The only HK's I have with very small play between frame and slide are the VP series. The rest are tight.

    How is the fit on your USP9T? My USP45T has a little amount slide-to-frame play, while my USP9 Expert is very tight. Thanks.

    USP9T is as tight as the Expert, as tight as they can be without binding, IMO. All others are equally just as tight with the exception of the VP's. It even seems my HK45CT is as tight as my ed brown 1911, no exagerration.
