    Now that the AWB has died I'm back in the market for a hi-cap compact 9mm, and the H&K P2000 looks pretty sweet right now, other contenders include the P228 and P99, but the P2000 feels great in my hand.

    I'm hearing that they are not worth the money, that the LEM trigger is just plain bad, and that they are just not moving from gun store display cabinets.

    Does anyone have one that they actually like, and should buyers go with the v3 trigger (DA/SA) and avoid the LEM set up.

    The SIG P228 is worth every dime of the money spent on it! :cool: :D

    I do not own a P2000, but I have dry-fired one. I found the trigger to be excellent for a double-action trigger. The only factory double-action trigger that might be better is one of the competition model Sigs (The 226 X Line). I decided to look at one after a devoted DA shooter told me how impressed he is with the P2000's trigger.

    I do own an H&K USP which is the P2000's older brother. It's accurate, reliable, and fun to shoot.

    Get the Sig :) Wait get the HK so there will be more Sigs on the market for us Sig junkies :)

    The 228 and the P99 are excellent pistols!!!

    I had a P2000 with the LEM trigger in .40....
    I didnt feel that it was safe... Dont get me wrong, the trigger was great and the gun shoots flawless but I didnt trust myself with that good of a trigger in a DAO and no safety.....

    I traded it in on a P2000 DA SA with decocker and havent looked back since...

    I am left handed and I wanted a true ambi gun, and the P2000... is just that, for left handed or right handed....

    Is it worth the money, well it goes bang everytime... And the recoil for being a compact .40 is no more than my P-01 9mm...Also, it seems to be very accurate. I have about 500 rds through it so far....

    They are pricey but most H&Ks are...

    There are many good guns out there for less moneythat might satisfy you but I wouldnt trade mine for any of them......drf

    DRF,

    does your DA/SA P2000 have the decocking lever thingy at the back of the slide or is it the same type of lever as the USP? i like the P2000 but i'd like the same safety/decocker as the USP series. do they make them like that?

    The decocker on my P2000 is next to the hammer on the left rear of the gun...

    I dont believe the P2000 comes any other way than mine...

    If you like the decocker better on the USP then you will have to buy one of those...drf

    trick question?

    "Does anyone have one that they actually like, and should buyers go with the v3 trigger (DA/SA) and avoid the LEM set up."

    [SS] I have 2 FS USP 9's with the LEM trigger. The trigger pull is smooth, light, and resets very, very fast. IMHO, this is one of the better trigger setups going. The only real drawback to the LEM ... well, there are 2.
    1: that long trigger stroke means you have to manage that trigger.
    2: You'll be spoiled by the LEM trigger and start to hate other guns because _they_ don't have it.

    I don't think it's for everybody, but it's definitely a step forward in triggers.
    All other USP's I buy will have this.
