I purchased a threaded barrel from HKparts to use on my p30. I will be using a silencerco suppressor. The question for you all: can I use the same
sights that came with the gun or do I need something taller to accommodate the suppressor? My suppressor app went pending Nov 7 and I'm still
waiting for it to get thru the system, so I don't have it to see if the current sights will work. Thought maybe some of you had experience with
this or other guns that you shot suppressed.

Do you know the outside diameter of the suppressor you ordered? It would be an easy thing to measure into your pistol. Take a cut down pencil with the eraser just sticking out of the barrel. Cut a round disk the diameter of your suppressor from paper & pin it to the center of the eraser. There ya go!! You can then figure out how tall your sights need to be. Heinie straight 8 sights are taller than stock sights. They also make even taller ones for the P30 if you need them for suppressed ones. I would NOT order anything until you have the suppressor in hand & on your gun. But the disk exercise will give you an idea of where you stand.

The damn Feds can take forever (2 years!) to get off their butts & issue a permit. We at work have some for rifles take 20 months. I HATE THE BATFE!!

Heinie makes even taller ones? I'm thinking about running my Thompson machine Isis 2 on my p30 and the sights just miss the tube. So I need something at least 1/8" higher....
