Hi,

looking for a lighter hammer spring
I prefer buying factory parts
I know I can but a wolf hammer spring and cut it down to size but I would like to here the experts advice

Edited - as I want to elaborate
after reading here on improving the trigger I am thinking about
1. Light Trigger Return Rebound Spring
2. Light Firing Pin Block Spring

and also considering a lighter hammer spring

I would like to mention this is my main Self defense pistol

should I do any?
another consideration as we are mostly allowed here for only one pistol :( its also my BUG IDPA tool
what are the recommendations?

Thanks!

What trigger variant is your P2000SK now?

Don't think there are OEM lighter Hammer, TRS or FPBS options for a P2000SK V3.
If you really want a lighter trigger?
Reconsider V1 Light LEM.

Look at the part numbers. P2000sk da sa you are out of luck. The light fpbs and trs are for lem. You already have them in da/sa. Again, check the part numbers.

The spring chart is cristal clear BTW

where do you see the comparison do you have separate parts lists for the different triggers
what I found:
in my booklet the TRS is . . . . . 219441
while the light is 209266 (in hkparts)

and the FPBS 209962 vs
light 209296 (in hkparts)

did I get it wrong?

sorry for the simple questions - learning here

What part of the chart do you not understand?
Bottom right has the various triggers and spring parts associated with them for the P2000SK.

Ops, my bad, looks like you can go with the light fpbs, I think that's maybe 1/2 lbs at most though...

I put the Match nickel plated flat sear spring in my p30sk. It will not lighten the pull. But smooths out the trigger imho.

Good luck!

If you have V3 you already have light TRS and light hammer spring.

What you can look at is lighter firing pin safety string and match (nickel plated) sear spring (https://www.hkparts.net/shop/pc/Enhanced-Match-Flat-Sear-Spring-Nickel-Plated-199p1811.htm) and match trigger return spring (https://www.hkparts.net/shop/pc/Match-Trigger-Return-Spring-HK-Pistols-199p2666.htm), however with match TRS you may experience sluggish trigger reset on fast shooting and must keep trigger and trigger bar well lubed at all time. I would not use match TRS in carry pistol.

feeling stupid here - missed that section on the chart :(
Thanks for the explanation!
so for me if I want to keep the SA/DA then its the wolf spring option only

thanks for that info! noted

and as for the nickel plated sear spring a good friend that did replace that after 1K bullets in the pistol said it did not make any noticeable difference
and mine just passed that

Difference with match sear spring is subtle, that it for sure. In my experience it is just a bit more linear in resistance than regular spring.

Exactly what pistol do you have?
What flaws does it have that you don't like?
What are you hoping to gain?

We can't recommend anything until we know what you're looking for.

I'd be careful of using third party springs on a carry gun.
Personally only use OEM springs myself.
Have had light primer strike issues with after market parts.

I understand so keep it original if is a self defence pistol and spend the money on brass and lead

Well shoot my first IDPA classifer with my P2K-sk and I was happily surprised to get a Sharpshooter classification.
Will keep the pistol as is and indeed spend money on brass.

I see you have the V3. You could install the FPBS out of a V1, and see a noticeable difference.

I'm not a big fan of going to a lighter hammer spring. Light strikes can happen with normal springs, so if you go this route, do some extensive testing before considering the gun reliable.

The standard hammer spring is 12lbs on the SK. I bought a Wolff 10lbs hammer spring and cut it down to the same length as the stock. Works wonders for me. IMO, its the perfect carry hammer lbs. Any lighter would be just plain silly due to it being a carry gun and all. Plus, you might get light primer strikes. Hope my experience helps.
