Watched the videos for the USP and the P30's and the one video said it would work on a P2000 also. Went to reassemble and I can not figure out where the elbow spring goes. I can find no information for the P2000 other than it is the only one with that spring. Can't figure out how to install the piece that goes in with the hammer and uses the hammer pin. Does anyone have a write-up or a armorer manual PDF? Before anyone says I shouldn't have done this, I voided the warranty or all I needed to do was use some compressed air, I am glad I did. I used Break-Free and alcohol regularly but when I got it apart it was so gunked up it was nasty.

I can only assume that the piece you are referring to is the cocking piece?
Here's a parts diagram: HKParts | Heckler & Koch Genuine Parts - HKPARTS.NET

The cocking piece is #35 on that diagram. It will only fit one way, and it's pretty intuitive.


P.S. I've never heard of anyone using alcohol to clean a gun before. Using it on myself while cleaning the gun, yes. Using it on the gun, no.

The elbow spring is the cocking piece spring in P2000 (#36). That spring is present on P2000, P2000SK, and P30 series.
The spring goes to the LEFT of the hammer, between the hammer and the frame. The left leg of the spring should rest on the sear, pointing to the muzzle. The right leg rests on the hammer. See pic below.

Thank you guys!!! I did have the cocking piece in the wrong position. I had the notch on it at the bottom where the hammer engages the trigger bar. Took me 10 minutes once I figured that out. I work on that thing 2 hours this morning. I threw all the parts and a Ziploc and was going to take it to the armorer tomorrow. The spring had me baffled because I didn't know it was there till I pulled everything out. I am a certified GLOCK armorer, but those are easy. I use denatured alcohol as it will strip any oil from the parts. Then it gets some fresh lube.

my tip: a small crochet needle works wonders on that rebound spring, if you think you'll be doing this more often.

I don't recommend it. The holes in the frame will wear if you pull it apart too often. Then your pins/axles get loose and start falling out when you don't want them too. You should see worn out hookers....err, I mean frames that are used for armorers training. Used, abused, rode hard and put away wet.

You might feel better about having the "gunk" cleaned out, but I promise you the gun isn't going to go bang any louder now that it's clean.

I too pulled my 15 year old p2000 apart. I was able to get it back together but the SA does not work. Hammer will not stay set. Any advice? Everything else seems to work. When you run the slide the trigger pulls feels like SA.
