I was wondering if any of you all have seen this (see pics). I just received it new and I noticed the mark on the frame where the back part of the spurred hammer seems to be leaving a mark/indentation on the polymer frame. I won't be able to shoot it until next week and I'm sure it's not going to affect its functionality but am a bit concerned what this will do to the frame over time. Appears to be pushing on that exact spot every time I rack the slide. My USPc and former HK45c never had that mark...

I just got my P30SK with the LEM V1 option so there is no decocker, but there is no "damage" in the hammer slot. It doesn't look like there would be a problem at any rate.
Good luck with it.
Great pistol.

It's new. Other pics online of V3 P30s show that same mark. It really doesn't bother me, it's a gun/tool; however, I just want to ensure that it doesn't get deeper since its polymer that's all.

I have a P30SK LEM, so I can't really help the OP.

But I have to say, it seems very un-HK-like to have a pistol leave the factory, such that normal use causes a deformation in the frame like that.

I would not be real happy to receive a gun in that condition as "new" without contacting HK CS.

Here's pic of mine before the LEM conversion and after 1,500 rds. It started life as a V3. No marks.

In your pic, It looks like it does at the base where the hammer would touch as the weapons cycles, no? The more images I pull off the web, the more I think it's normal.

Thanks. The more I look at it, the more I think it's simply a matter of the base of the back of the hammer "slamming" into the frame when cycling. Looks to be a perfect imprint if you will.

Yeah, that part is normal. It is the corner of the cutout that is kinda boogered up that is bumming some people out. But it is completely good to go otherwise.

If that is how it arrived brand new, I'd take it back. I understand it's a tool, but that is now new in my opinion.

All of my P30 pistols have that mark and it is a normal progression from the operation of the pistol. These pistols undergo various testing including actual shooting at the factory. I would not worry. Bill

Personally I wouldn't be ok with a new gun having that. Seems wrong to me. I'd contact HK.

Be OK with what? If you are talking about the boogered up corner - I bet it didn't leave the factory that way. The other mark will occur from normal use (maybe even dry firing).

My P30sks doesn't have a mark there. Similar marks on the rails from holster wear, but not there from the hammer. About 500 rounds and countless dry fires. For me personally sending it back wouldn't be worth the shipping cost/turnaround time. Unless you call them and they say it might be a real problem.

My p30 sk has this mark from the hammer. There's a p30sk at academy that I looked at the other day that has it too. Google p30 decocker and go to images. Some have it some don't. I don't worry about mine.

Yeah I was talking about that corner. Sorry I wasn't more clear about it. I'm also a bit of a perfectionist. I want my guns to come pretty much perfect from the factory. I only tolerate imperfections after I've had a chance to beat my guns up a bit. My P30SK only has 350 rounds through it so far so it hasn't developed the mark yet, but I trust the gangs notion that it will develop with use.

My HK45 doesn't have that mark either.

As far as that corner goes, it doesn't look like it'd have any bearing on function but it makes me question if the gun is actually new.
