Hey guys,
I've had VP9s and absolutely love them. Never had a problem with the inner trigger guard due to the short trigger pull. Recently picked up a P30L V1 in .40. I converted it to the V4.1 and put 150rds through it yesterday. It shot great, but noticed it was about 2" low at 10yds. Already have a shorter front fiber optic sight coming in from Dawson. It shot great with no hiccups but noticed the "trough" inside the trigger guard was quite annoying to my trigger finger. No matter how I placed my finger, it would pinch/rub. I decided to disassemble the frame again and take care of the "trough". I started with a sanding drum on a dremel at low speed and began recontouring the inner trigger guard. Once the "trough" was gone and everything fairly even, I started sanding from 150 all the way up to 2000. Once final sanding was done, it was hit with plastic polish for a refined look. Already feels 100% better. I'll have everything reassembled once the nickel plated sear spring arrives from hkparts and the internals receive a fitting/polish. Hope this helps others who are hesitant about taking a dremel to their frame. Just take it slow and keep it at slow speed to not burn the polymer.

I've had this problem when I shot the P30L, at first my figure placement was great but after 50rds I noticed my group shots were going all over the place at 7-10rds and finger is riding down on the trigger guard annoying me. I noticed when I placed my finger properly center of the trigger, I was getting my group shots again at the same distance. I thought I was the only one that did this lol however my trigger was still stock on the gun.

It was frustrating to say the least especially when the VP9 is keyholing every shot at 10-15yds. The P30L is a phenomenal gun, however it needs some tweaks to really make it a consistent shooter (at least for me).

I had this finger pinching "problem" when I got my first P30. After adjusting my grip and finger placement on the trigger this "problem" went away.

Another Guy had that done by Lazy Wolf Guns. http://www.hkpro.com/forum/hk-handgun-talk/276826-p30-custom-work-lazy-wolf-guns-3.html That finger pinch is what turned me away from the P30 or P30sk Gun Trigger Shotgun Gun accessory Airsoft

This is true, I'm a big striker fire guy and use to shooting striker fired pistols, but I know it will take practice and adjustments to get use to their trigger system.

Hate the grooves on my P30L and P30SK.

Unrelated to the grooves, in order to improve my shooting I tried adjusting my finger placement to more consistently pull straight back (i.e., not push the point of impact to the side). I just realized (as a result of this thread) that I don't notice the grooves anymore.

That said, if H&K ever offered the polymer portion of the frames without the grooves at a reasonable price (I don't expect they will, the frame is a serialized part), I'd be all over them -- even though I don't normally rub my finger on them anymore, I still hate 'em!
