I haven't been able to shoot a P2000 yet. I do own a glock 19, so I am familiar with the recoil.
I recently sold a P30 because I needed money for another project, so I know how it shoots.
Question is, which would have less recoil of the 3, P2000, P2000sk, or G19? Using the same grain ammo. I saw some youtube vids, but would like to know from the hk
experts
Thanks if you can help.

I've shot G19's, and own a P30 9mm and an sk 9mm, but have never shot the P2000 either. I own a Gen 4 G26, and the Gen 4's dual recoil springs do help in felt recoil. For me, the sk has a little more recoil than the P30 which is mainly due to size/weight and the difference in the recoil spring assemblies, and to me it has a lot less recoil than the Gen 4 G26 (similar in size to sk). The P30 is still the softest, most accurate shooter I've ever owned, no matter the grain or pressure of the round. Having not shot the P2000 full size, my guess would be that it may have a little less recoil than the sk due to additional size and weight. There are folks in the forum that have all of them. Since I am just a year into my "HKitis", I defer the truth behind my guess to them. I do believe you can't go wrong with any of them. Just depends on the intended use, your exprience, and having the time to send rounds down range. This probably does not help, but GOOD LUCK!

I've read here that the SK has less felt recoil thna the P2000, potentially due to the two staged recoil spring. Don't know firsthand. Even if I did, I'm kind of recoil deaf, so probably wouln't be much help anyway.

The P30 was an awesome shooter. I just want a slightly smaller 9. I do regret selling it, but needed money for a Wilson order which I probably won't see til next year.
I have read the SK has less recoil, then read it has more. I would think the SK would have more because of the smaller size, but it looks like it weighs more on the HK site. 1.55lbs
compared to 1.62 lbs. G19 weighs 1.46 -ish lbs. I am relatively new to HK, not to glock. I do like the G19, but it is not a HK. The P30 spoiled me.

Of the three weapons you've listed, I'd say the 9mm. P2000 would have the least felt recoil.

Well in MY firsthand experience, my .40 P2000 had less felt recoil than my 9mm. P2000SK, so I'd assume the 9mm. P2000 would be a sweetheart to shoot. :25:

Nice and Thanks!

I have shot all three. Never compared them side by side but what I remember the P2000 9mm and the G19 were about the same. The p2000SK was more recoil than the other two.

I sold the G19 so cannot compare them again.

Edit: my definition of recoil here is the muzzle flip.

I've read that too and would like to hear more on that as a P2000 is on my short list. I have shot a P2Ksk in .40 using whatever grain ball that PMC uses and it was not bad at all. I've shot the P30 in 9mm along side the G19 and felt the 19 had maybe, maybe, a little more recoil and muzzle flip. Though I didn't shoot them side by side, I don't think the sk was much more in recoil or muzzle flip the the G19.

I will say I've pretty much scratched the P30 from my list in favor of the P2000, as the grip of the latter felt more comfortable, while the grooved trigger guard on the P30 was an annoyance and distraction.

Just got back form the range. Got to shoot my new to me P2000 and the recoil is very easy. Wasn't shooting any other 9mms so I have nothing for comparison but been shooting for bit and can say the P2000 in 9mm is a pleasure to shoot.

I don't have a G19, but the G26 has a little more recoil than the P2000sk in 9m. The P2000sk in 9M is very low recoil and a very nice shooting gun. You mentioned you have had the P30 and I don't see a significant difference between the P30 and P2000sk, but the grip on the P30 is nicer and it is a little softer shooting. The 2000sk is a great option if you want a smaller gun - similar to the G26.

Since recoil on all of these is likely a non-issue, I would think that there are more important factors than recoil for selecting between them- e.g. trigger, grip angle and ergonomics.

Good Luck.
