HK 45c vs HK P30: Field Strip Question

1583 Views 4 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  XTrooper
Hi all,
So the other day I was fortunate enough that my LGS had an HK P30. I already have an HK 45c and love the gun immensely. I was handling the P30, inspecting it before I put money down on it, and I noticed something. When I went to remove the slide release lever I noticed that I could push it out so far and I was able to pull the slide off the frame, but the slide release lever stayed in the frame. Whereas on my 45c the slide release lever on the left side of the firearm will come out completely when field stripping. I kind of liked this about the P30.

Is this a feature reserved for the P30? Why isn't it on the 45 as well?

In the p30 it is not needed to remove the slide release completely for take down and normal cleaning, it is captive like TooSixy said. If you want to remove it though, first remove the slide, then rotate the the slide release lever counter clockwise about 45-90 degrees. It should come out easily. DO NOT FORCE IT! You will break your TRS.
