Got one of these less than two weeks ago.

Put it through the wringer.

About 100 rounds of Independence/Speer Al case 115gr
100 rounds of Remington 115 gr target
100 of Win NATO
200 of Federal Purple Box wal mart 115gr
50 of Winchester PDX1
50 of Federal HST

Lubed it once with WC Ultima Lube, haven't cleaned it yet.

Light LEM has a long pull, but the actual trigger is very smooth and it breaks reliably. DA-ish pull with the restrike capability is revolver heavy, not that you'd normally have a use for that.

HK glow in the dark sights are goofy, and I don't like 3-dot anything, but I hit what I was shooting at.

Recoil is gentle, follow ups are fast, sight picture makes acquiring targets easy.

The gun is small and my gorilla hands mean that my pinky is wrapped under the baseplate of the mag, that didn't cause any issues with control or recoil.

Ambi slide release/stop controls are a nice feature for weak hand drills--so is the paddle mag release.

Only gripe was that the pin for the backstrap wasn't centered and it wiggled around, so I had to center it with a punch.





Target is at 10 yards, I think it was either the Al case Speer or the Wally World Federal, moderate rate of fire 1 round/sec.

You mentioned the sights, and because most guys plan to carry the SK models instead of just make them range toys, I'll remind you and others who may be reading here. The luminescent sights work by gathering light. Without light, they will not glow and there is no light in the bottom of a holster.
I see it often when conducting low light/no light training, that when students present HK pistols with those sights, they surprisingly cannot find their front sight post.

I have no use for them.

I'll probably throw a set of Heinie ledge Straight 8's on it. Not sure if the shorter slide will work with them, I have to call Heinie and ask about the height of the front sight post--haven't gotten around to it yet.

Heinie is a great option and a common request I receive from my customers. Enjoy.

If you like the Heine Straight 8's, an alt option would be XS sights... either regular dot, or big dot. Instead of making an "8" with two dots... with XS you "dot the i".. I find both workable, but lean toward "dotting the i"

What is, in your expertise, the best sight option that you have seen. I know you are an HK Armorer. So as a carry gun with a wide quick sight picture, what do you recommend and and install the most, for a CCW pistol that has a purpose of close work on a P30sk?

For rapid close range acquisition, the Trijicon HD is superior. At distance thought, the large painted circle around the tritium will make it more difficult to get fine accuracy, as the large dot will cover most of your target. At night, there is no issue though, as you'll just see the tritium in the center. If you want a smaller outline around the tritium, the Trijicon Bright and Tough sights have a simple white circle.
Dawson Precision makes a nice set that are similar to the Trijicon Bright and Tough Sights.
Heinie makes excellent sights too. No outline and the tritium inserts are smaller, sometimes making picking them up more challenging.
Meprolights are spec'd off H&K factory sights, so no POA/POI shift.
Bottom line, lots of great sight options and I've found selection is a very personal thing.
