My love for the H&K P30 pistol is no secret. I still consider it the single best handgun on the market today and even though I’m enjoying the heck out of the 1911, there is no comparison in terms of reliability or ease of maintenance (not to mention that my box stock P30 was actually more accurate than my 1911).
Darryl Bolke, aka nyeti on many gun boards, has been running HK pistols since before I shot my first gun. He’s also come to be a fan of the P30 in particular. Yesterday, he posted an excellent article at Modern Service Weapons about the modifications he’s made to his personal P30 which is absolutely worth reading. Darryl can also attest to the fact that the P30 will work when fired from a Weaver stance, something probably no one else on Earth has tried. (I’m going to pay for that when I see DB at SHOT…)
