This is my p30 and I took it down to clean it today and put it back together and the slide stop lever looked lower than normal. Did I do something wrong here? This is the side of the gun with the serial number

It is definitely broken. Does it rattle, when shaken? If it doesn't, take it to the range, put at least 500-1,000 rounds through it and then report back. Once it starts rattling then the gun is considered operational and within specs. Until properly broken in with at least marginal holster wear, the gun is considered defective like many found on this forum.

If that's how it is suppose to sit after break in, I am ok with it, it did not rattle at first, but rattles now, I am also ok with that, just want to make sure I'm not doing something wrong.


Also why would break in cause this?

What is a trs? Would this fix this problem? I'm new to hk and did not intend to take the lever out, I just did.

Damn these guns are not as user friendly as my glocks, but love this gun. I took my side panels off and swapped them out is this goin to mess something up to?

The slide stops are captive, for whatever reason by the TRS. Since you stressed the TRS by the removal and subsequent reinstallation of the slide stops, then I would recommend the replacement of the TRS due to the stress imposed by removal and installation of the slide stops. The TRS IMO is the Achilles Heal of the HK disassembly process.

Goodness. The thing is fine. The thing rattles because the only thing keeping it to the frame is the little nub and the grooves cut into the piece that mate with the actual slide stop. It's not exactly a bank vault fitment. If it bothers you that much, do what people here often say and put some felt tape behind it.
