I feel the need to extol the virtues of the light LEM recently installed by the capable and efficient staff at HK CS. I just regret not having done this before now. The first shot is now easily controlled, compared to the massive DA pull of the regular trigger on the 45C. The consistent trigger pull is light as advertised and a pleasure to use. Slack has to be taken out of any trigger I have had experience with as the sights come on target so the long pull for the first shot is no problem. The reset point on the LEM is what I just didn't understand from reading on the forums. I had to try it for myself and it seems to be instinctual, for me at least. Quick double taps are easy but they don't occur unexpectedly. I really like not having to decock to make the gun safe after firing. One of the long-time members told me it would be like having a new pistol and it is, indeed. I repeatedly praise HK CS for the prompt attention on this and every occasion I have needed them over the years. Sam is really great as is Travis and the other guys I have dealt with on the phone. Of course, Mark and Bob were the first CS guys I met years ago and they were great, too. Can't get enough HK.

Glad you like it! I just ordered a 9mm P30 LEM... Can't wait to get it! Still trying to decide if I want to venture out and do the inversion myself on my 45c.

Good stuff. I have a package coming back from Sam tomorrow, and I can't wait to get to the range/match this weekend. Sam is good people, what ever they pay him, it's not enough.

Nice to hear credit being given to HK's customer service folks who, as we all know, took a severe bashing over the years as being unfriendly and stout to deal with when needed. As for the lightened LEM, I think it's the only way to go and prefer it over every other trigger save for one 1911 in my collection. Both my P2000 and USPc .40 have them, and I wouldn't have it any other way. The USPc has turned into my favorite pistol. They are amazing pistols!

? for you lem guys, when you carry, is the hammer spring compressed so you have the light pull?

What riceboy said. If you have a round in the chamber, it's a light pull. Long first pull but light pull. I can't be sure but I would say just between 4 and 5 pounds???

Ok, then of you guys with light lem that carry, do you have a safety switch too? Or do you carry with the light pull and no safety?

No safety, not required (and needless IMO) on any LEM.



If I wanted to carry a pistol with a safety, I'd carry a non-LEM cocked and locked.

ok thats what I figured, but how easy would an AD be with the light lem? Excuse the ignorance but I know about the lems and how they work etc. but have yet to handle one.

I have a Smith revolver with a tuned trigger that is about the same weight with a long pull. No safety. The LEM has a longer pull. I don't see a difference as long as I don't pull the trigger until I have determined to fire and as long as I use a holster that is a proven design that is safe for the HK. No shirtails in the holster, etc. In other words, be attentive and careful with any and all guns. Nothing different with the LEM. That's only my opinion. I have dry fired the new Walther PPQ and it is really short and light. I wouldn't feel comfortable carrying that pistol because the pull is so short. I like having the hammer as an indicator of something catching on the trigger when holstering. Others don't seem to have a problem with it. However, with the LEM, I just don't see a problem. Others may differ.
