I wanted to comment on the custom work done on my P30 LEM (V2) by Rick Holm. Bottom line is, Rick is a genius, and his work is flawless. He performed the following:

Hammer-fired master reduced reset action package
Electroless nickel on internal action parts
Trigger guard groove removal
Slide release reduction
Trijicon HD sight install

I'm posting some side by side pics to illustrate 4 of the 5 items, but what can't be captured in pics is the incredible difference in trigger action. My LEM is now lighter, FAR smoother, and the reset is cut at least in half. It's really hard to describe the difference. Is it worth the cost? To me, absolutely. Rick is a great guy, will answer any and all questions with patience, and his work is fairly priced, in my opinion. I think he's the go-to guy for HK pistol work, and I could not be more pleased with my pistol.

The side by side pics are the custom P30 next to an as-new stock P30L I just picked up. You can see the nickel on internals, the reduced slide release levers, and the trigger guard groove removal. The latter two are highly recommended and result in much improved ergonomics.

I know that feedback would've helped me when I was trying to decide whether to have work done and who to send it to. Hope this helps someone.

My VP9 has been there since 7/5, I''m getting all giddy with anticipation!

Looking forward to comparing that one to the other 2. Sent FDE to Rick, the 2-black ones are stock.

Yeah, I really love the VP9 handguns.

Rick is the HK Yoda, his work trumps all aspiring Jedi's.

Another plug for Rick...

Got my P30L V0 back a few weeks ago, now have over 500 rtds through it. Fantastic work, everything is smoother, night and day difference in the reset, which is now shorter than my VP9. The only problem is, my other LEMs now feel..."inadequate". My P2K which I thought was pretty good now feels like a 1/4 mile of gravel road with a reset somewhere into tomorrow...... So it's making the trip this week. In addition to Rick's work I'm having the slide, both barrels (357Sig and .40), internals, slide releases and a couple magazines done in Robar NP3.

I put the thin slide release levers on my P2K, but after looking at the OPs pics I might send a set of slide release levers for my P30L to have them modified.

I've four of his, first without 4.1 parts, and now with. Does change how the gun runs, doesn't it? I've been putting on my best times and scores with these.
I might be selling my 30L LEM after this weekend, haven't decided yet. Anyone who is a fan of his work and is potentially interested, send me a pm if you want to avoid me releasing it to general public.

I hear you...That P30L I just picked up will very likely be headed his way at some point as well!

What are "4.1 parts"? I'm fairly new to HKs.

Thanks for that link. Would help to have less pre-travel, but what makes Rick's work so valuable to me is the reduced reset. I just tried mine again side by side with my Lite LEM factory P30L, and it seems like more than a 50% reduction in reset. That, combined with the lighter pull weight and incredible smoothness, makes the LEM as easy for me to shoot as a 1911. It really changes the entire character of the LEM system.

Obviously, mine are both reduced 4.1 pretravel and reduced Holm reset. Reduction in pretravel nicely adds to reduction in reset, very complimentary.
It is in fact 50% reset distance reduction for P30/L comparing to stock.
The only annoying part is paying $350 plus shipping both ways to get reset similar to USP/HK45/Glock etc.

Gotcha. That does sound like the perfect combo!

Rick's website is: Lazy Wolf Guns, a leader in H&K and SIG pistolsmithing innovation

I just got my HK 45 Compact back from Rick, with the same work you had done. The trigger is MUCH better. I cant wait to get to the range this weekend.
As you know, Rick was THE man at Grayguns for the HK work, before he left to start Lazy Wolf. I imagine he is one of the top HK pistol smiths in the world...

LWG performed action work on my P2000, P2000SK, and P220c SAO. Best part is, the guy is just nice to deal with, nevermind that the work is excellent.

Rick could obviously provide a more current time frame, but mine took about 3 months from the time I sent it off till I got it back in my sweaty hands. Not a bad wait for that kind of work, imho.
