Heckler & Koch has pistol enthusiasts excited for what’s to come. First, it was the company’s striker-fired VP9 was that created a strong buzz, and now something entirely different.
Heckler & Koch has added a new subcompact pistol, the P30SK, to its renowned P30 series line.
The new P30SK (“SubKompact”) is one of the smallest HK handguns made and is ideally suited as a concealed carry pistol. With an overall length of less than 6.5 inches, the P30SK is small enough for discreet, everyday carry but still packs a substantial 11 rounds of full power 9mm cartridges in an easy to shoot, ergonomic design.

The completely adjustable P30 grip feature — consisting of interchangeable backstraps and lateral grip panels — is replicated in the shortened grip frame of the P30SK. Changeable backstraps and grip panels allow the pistol to be easily modified to fit any individual user.
Like its larger frame P30 counterparts, the P30SK is available in multiple trigger firing modes including HK’s enhanced double action only “Law Enforcement Modification (LEM).” For the P30SK, the LEM trigger is configured with a “light strike V1″setup -requiring approximately 5.4 pounds-force to pull the trigger.
Other trigger modes include conventional double action/single action (DA/SA) with a serrated decocking lever located on the rear of the frame. The DA/SA mode is available with and without dual ambidextrous manual safeties located on the left and right side of the frame.
Other ambidextrous controls include dual slide and magazine release levers.
Like all P30 pistols, the P30SK features an automatic hammer safety and firing pin safety.
An abbreviated Picatinny rail molded into the front of the frame enables weapon lights, laser aimers, or other accessories to be easily mounted. All P30SK models have been extensively tested during a three-year development process.
The P30SK has an MSRP of $719.
