New “Long Slide” P30 Pistol joins the HK handgun line

back to newsroom

Columbus, Georgia — Heckler & Koch adds a long slide model to its P30 pistol line with the introduction of the P30L (for Long). Introduced in both Europe and the USA, the P30L has a slide and barrel that measure a half-inch longer length. Otherwise the P30L is nearly identical to the P30.

The P30 (introduced in 2007) is a modern police and security pistol that combines function and safety. Ergonomic features include a special grip frame with interchangeable backstraps 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 self-decocking, double action hammer with a firing pin block safety that eliminates the need for a manual safety.

Extensively tested, the P30 and the newly added P30L have 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.

Aside from conventional single-action/double-actions models that feature the serrated decocking button on the rear of the slide, double action only versions are also planned. These models will use the proprietary HK “LEM” (Law Enforcement Modification) trigger.
