    Default H&K 9mm USP vs P30...

    Folks:

    I really like H&K for feel and size. I was originally set on the USP but recently heard the P30 is a must try. Anyone have experience with both? Looking for opinions. Thx.

They are bought great guns, I like the P30 because it had the interchangeble back strap and side plates making it a great fitting gun. Check in the range report section for my report and pictures on the P30.

    Wow, comsubin61, that's a good looking P30. I assume you bought it new? I'm curious how much as I'm starting to get on the serious buy wagon this week.

    yes it is brand new. The price was $ 869 plus taxes. Although I seen it cheaper on line, but I always like to support the local shops so that they can stay open and give out all the important answer as well as allow us to look and feel the merchandise before buying.

    The P30 is basically the next evolution from the USP. I have a P30L in 9mm, and it is wonderful.

    I picked up this USP 9 about a month or so ago. I liked it better than the P-30 or the P-2000. It is a more conventional looking pistol. I didn't care for the rounded styling of the others. To me they looked too much like a Ruger. H&K's are a bit overpriced in general, but the gun fit my hand well, and I thought I would give H&K a try and see what all of the hoopla is about.

    Overall it's a nice pistol, but to be honest I won't be rushing off to buy another. When you consider the fact the gun is half again as much as a Glock, it really doesn't offer up that much more in performance. As I said I bought it because it felt good in my hand, and I didn't own a H&K firearm. So far the gun has run flawlessly, and for the money it should. It field strips easily, and the gun appears to be well made. It is also very accurate. It is one of the better Polymer pistols out there. But speaking strictly from a value standpoint, there are better guns for the money. Bill T.

    Another great feature of the P30 is that it is a true ambidestrous. It has a magazine release as well as a slide release on both sides of the gun. If you find your self shooting with the left hand you will be able to perform both tasks without having to re-adjust the gun in your hands. This is not available on the glock. It has the 3 different grip plates and the rear also interchangeble giving you a variety of adjustments for just about any type of hand, also not available on the glock. It also has a locking mechanism inside the grip to lock the firing pin as a storage safety in case a safe is not available, the glock does not have this option. To make a much longer story short the difference in price from the H&K and the other's ( like the Glock) is in the extra features. It is a little like buying a car, they all get you from point A to point B, but a Mercedes gets you there with comfort and pleasure, the Chevy just gets you there. I am not saying the the Glock is a bad gun, and for self defense I would also choose a glock over many others, but only if money was a concern or there were no H&K's around to buy. Thank God neither was a concern for me when I was shopping for a new gun. I hope I have not offended any of the Glock guys, I was merely stating my modest opinion, if I did I apologize.

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]: I'd be surprised if you didn't offend Glock owners, as they are some of the most passionate owners I've read from. However, I've held both guns, watched both in action as well as evaluated both in great detail and am convinced the H&K is several hundred more for several reasons. But for the sake of a lengthy comparison discussion, they simply put more into the gun. Is it wort the extra $200 to $300? To each his own. I for one hope to own an H&K (still undecided which), a Sig and a Kimber. As you can tell, I'm clearly a fan of finer workmanship, and that's just the way I am.

    So as for the P30 vs. USP, sounds like I need to shoot both a few hundred rounds before committing. Thanks for the thoughts!

    Hence the heart felted apology!

    I am a GLOCK owner, I have four of them actually, and the G23 is my ccw, so I certainly place real value om their function, reliability, and my ability to shoot them. There are still real differences between them, and it is a personal decision if it is worth the $$$.
