My "new" p2000sk (40 smith, looks pretty well used, not as advertised by any means) slings brass about twice as far as the newer P30L, so I'm just wondering.... No failure to feed, fire, or eject and this is with the Winchester 180 grain HP ranger load. Is this "normal" and what I can expect? Is the replacement spring on HK Parts the same spring for the 9mm, 40 & 357 Sig? Love the weapon, but it is slinging the brass quite a way at the range. Thanks in advance, tim

P.S. No, you can't have it to "help" me with my question...

I have a 9mm, and it seems to eject with as much heft as my p7's.

Chuck, thanks. I've just ordered the new assembly. Wondering if "one size fits all" is correct as there's only one listed. Seems to me the 9mm would be a bit less recoil than the 40 with 180 grain loads?

Any paint on your existing spring? The inner spring in my P2000SK 9mm is painted Red. The "full size" P2000/USPC recoil spring (same spring in both pistols) is color coded Red for 9mm and Blue for .40S&W.

There may only be one recoil spring assembly for the P2000SK, though. It's a double spring assembly.

Let us know what happens to your ejected cases after the change. This assembly may wear faster shooting .40S&W than 9mm.

Just looked at the springs. The smaller (inner) spring is, in fact, red on my sk. The larger spring doesn't really have a color code that I can see, so I'll just have to wait and see what's there on the new assembly. I will report back, once I've range tested the new assembly. Thanks, tim

P.S. I've just contacted HK Parts about the springs, so I should have an answer soon. Will post as soon as I can.

This may be a normal occurrence as my P2000SK in .40 S&W also throws its brass approximately 3' farther, on average, than my P30LS in the same caliber. This has been the case from the first rounds fired from these pistols to date. Also, neither throws its brass a distance I would characterize as excessive. I don't think it has anything to do with the condition of the recoil spring assembly in your SK.

Red inner spring is what's in my 9mm P2000SK.

As the recoil spring weakens with use the slide velocity increases and the ejected brass goes farther. About the most evident sign to replace the recoil spring.

All P2000SK pistols use the same recoil spring assembly regardless of caliber, the spring is always painted red although it wears/flakes off rather quickly. There is only a single part identification number for the P2000SK recoil spring assembly for the 9mm, .40S&W, and .357SIG (#207119).

Strong positive ejection is not a flaw in a service pistol, it is in fact a desired trait.

Good info right there ^

With the p2ksk using a universal assembly for 9mm,.40/357sig along with it being a low mass slide it's going to sling it regardless IMO. Don't be disapointed when you put a new assembly in and don't notice any immediate difference, not to say you won't but I'm putting my money on no difference if so very minimal.
