Firearm Description

The first of the many recent additions to the Heckler & Koch handgun line, the P2000 and incorporate features of the successful HK USP Compact pistol with the latest innovations of HK engineers. A refinement of a design created for several European police agencies, the P2000 is available with a traditional double-action/single-action trigger mode and the LEM/CDA (Law Enforcement Modification, also known as Combat Defense Action) trigger system first introduced in 2001 on the USP Compact "LEM" model. The HK Law Enforcement Modification trigger system combines the advantages of a cocked striker component (constant level of trigger pull from first to last round fired) with a double-action hammer system. Developed especially for a U.S. government agency, the Law Enforcement Modification (or LEM for short), is a unique trigger mechanism created specifically to improve the trigger performance and reduce the weight of the Double-Action Only (DAO) trigger pull on HK pistols. With this mechanism, HK pistols can be fired like a standard DAO semi-automatic pistol where every round is fired by simply pulling the trigger fully rearward with the hammer starting at the forward rest position. The design of the proprietary HK LEM system allows the weight of the DAO trigger pull to be reduced to a smooth and constant 6.18 - 8.5 pounds (27.5 - 37.8 N) because the two-part hammer is pre-cocked every time the slide moves rearward. Trigger pull on conventional double action pistols is 12 - 15 pounds (53.4 - 66.7N). The unique LEM pre-cocked hammer system combines the advantages of a cocked striker component (constant level of trigger pull and short trigger travel from first to last round fired) with a double action hammer system. Optional adjustment (by HK certified armorer) can bring the trigger pull into the 5.5 pound (24.5 N) range. Using such an enhanced trigger system consolidates ease of use and safety into a convenient, innovative trigger operation — one that prevents unintended firing. And in case of an ammunition-related failure to fire, all that is needed is an additional second or third pull of the trigger without the need of first pulling the slide back to re-cock the P2000. The enhanced LEM trigger system combines the reliability of a double action revolver trigger with the crisp, precise trigger of a single action pistol. A set of simple-to-install modular grip panels allow the P2000 to be custom-fitted to any shooter’s hand. An ambidextrous magazine release and dual slide release levers make handling the P2000 natural and easy for right and left-handed shooters alike. Industry standard mounting rails allow the widest variety of lights, laser aimers, and accessories to be added to the P2000 by sliding them onto the open rail system. The HK P2000 includes the same recurved, hook trigger guard found on the USP Compact and uses reliable and widely available USP Compact magazines. A limited edition P2000 German Police Model features a "closed" accessory mounting rail system and a tapered trigger guard.

  1. P2000 os a poor frame design and HK's customer service is horrible. Review by Very disappointed HK fan

    I'll start off by saying I've always loved HK's. I believed they made some of the best firearms BUT this is not one of them. I purchased this gun as a duty weapon for law enforcement. I love the ability to function the gun on either side of the frame. There is where the problem is. The slide release on the left side of the frame is held by a very thin piece of polymer. You rotate the right side slide release up and it fits nicely in a cut out. Then you remove it. Only problem is the very thin piece of polymer is only attached to the frame by two tiny pieces. One of those pieces broke. I wasn't doing anything special and I didn't drop it or yank on anything o cause it to break. I called HK and they told me they have had issues with the same piece Breslin on some guns. They told me sometimes the polymer is just weak in that spot. So I got an RMA number to sen the gun back and was told the shipping charge would be $70. As you can imagine I called HK and they told me they wouldn't do anything about the shipping because I had to have done something to their gun to break it. The new rep told me they don't ever have problems with that piece of the gun. So I paid the shipping. On the outside of the box I wrote the RMA number down and they returned to sender saying they had no record of me sending them the gun. I called them and spoke to someone who sent me a label to send the gun back to them. I got the gun back quickly only to find they bent part of the polymer frame and basically melted plastic and moved it around to try and hold it together. So now I have a bent frame that looks like a seven year old put it together. HK said too bad, I broke it originally. The gun is a good gun aside from that. Buyer be ware with HK, their customer service is non existent. I only wish I could post the pictures.
