The Heckler and Koch P2000 is a semi-automatic medium-framed pistol chambered in 9mm, .40 S&W, and .357 SIG. HK is a German arms manufacturer founded in 1949 and is headquartered in Oberndorf am Neckar, Germany.
The P2000 was developed for several European police agencies, and is available in traditional double-action/single-action trigger mode and LEM/CDA trigger mode. The latter abbreviation signifies “Law Enforcement Modification,” or “Combat Defense Action.” This trigger system uses a cocked striking component with a double-action hammer system, the result of which is a constant distance of trigger pull from the first shot to the last. This system is designed to increase ease of use and safety, while preventing unintended discharge.
The P2000 features a 3.66″ barrel, with an overall length of 7″. The P2000 also includes modular grip panels, allowing the grips to be custom-fitted for superior ergonomics. Additional features include an ambidextrous magazine release, standard accessory mounting rails, and hooked trigger guard. The P2000 employs a 3-dot sighting system.
The P2000 is available in a number of trigger variants, which are described as follows:
P2000: Safety trigger with concealed cocking piece in hammer; centrally located decocking lever fires in DA/SA mode P2000 V1: Safety trigger with concealed cocking piece in hammer; constant trigger pull (LEM/CDA configuration) without decocking P2000 V2: Same configuration as V1, but with trigger pull of 7.3 pounds P2000 V3: DA/SA trigger and hammer with decocking P2000 V4: Same configuration as V1, but with trigger pull of 6.18 pounds P2000 V5: Double-action only, with trigger pull of 7.87 pounds
