P2000sk slings brass?

1124 Views 9 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  amstaffHK
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...

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.

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.
