New .45 caliber pistols added to HK line for 2008

back to newsroom

Trussville, Alabama – The most recent HK pistol design, the P30 is a modern police and security pistol that combines function and safety. First introduced in Europe, the P30 will be available to U.S. law enforcement, military, and civilian customers in 2007.

Ergonomic features includes a special grip frame with interchangeable backstrap inserts and lateral plates, allowing the pistol to be individually adapted to any user. Ambidextrous controls include dual slide releases, magazine release levers, and a serrated decocking button located on the rear of the slide.

A Picatinny rail molded into the front of the frame makes mounting lights, laser aimers, or other accessories easy and convenient. An advanced loaded chamber indicator is easily seen and felt, and positively indicates a loaded chamber. The P30 has a double action hammer with a firing pin block safety that eliminates the need for a manual safety.

Extensively tested, the P30 has already been adopted by European police agencies. Excellent weight and balance make the P30 naturally pointable, easy to control, and accurate to shoot. An open notch rear sight with luminous (non-radioactive) contrast points allows for fast and accurate target acquisition, even under poor lighting conditions. Available in 9 mm for 2008 with available calibers planned.
