THE P2000 US

The newest addition to the Heckler & Koch handgun line, the P2000 “US”
incorporates 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 US uses the trigger system introduced in 2001 on the USP Compact “LEM” (Law Enforcement Modification) model.

This unique 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. The P2000 trigger pull has been reduced to 7.3-8.5 pounds of pressure, compared to 12-15 pounds found on many conventional double action pistols. Optional adjustment (by HK armorers) can bring the trigger pull into the 5.5 pound 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 grips 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.

New for HK is the addition of industry standard mounting rails to the P2000 US, allowing the widest variety of lights, laser aimers, and accessories to be added by sliding them onto the open rail system. The HK P2000 US includes the same recurved, hook trigger guard found on the USP Compact and uses reliable and widely available USP Compact magazines.
