The new gun: http://hk-usa.com/hk-models/p30sk/
Rumors have been swirling about a new product launch from HK. When we were making preparations for our trip to Nashville, I knew the HK booth would be one of my very first stops. What’s the headline? Well, we’re still waiting. But I wouldn’t be typing this now if there wasn’t something I thought was worth sharing.
HK did bring a new gun to the show–the P30SK. This is a rocking little pistol. The 9mm is 6.42 inches long, and 1.37 inches wide, and only 4.57 inches tall. Even with those dimensions, it still manages to hold 11 rounds. I respect capacity in a carry gun. In fact, I feel almost as much love for inadequate single stacks as I do for bulimic super models. And this gun is hardly inadequate.
The 30SK feels great. The back straps are adjustable. Nothing new there. But the sides of the grip are interchangeable, too. In its largest configuration, this pistol fits my hand and is still very concealable. If you are really tiny–I mean like prepubescent boy tiny, you may need a thinner pistol. Most everyone else would have little trouble concealing the gun.
And the price is exceptional. This pistol should be selling for somewhere in the $600 region. That’s not the lowest priced 9mm, not by a long shot, but it is a great price for this level of craftsmanship. And it has an exposed hammer, and a decocker. All of the controls are ambidextrous. The sights are actual sights, and are interchangeable.
In short, this is everything you’d expect from an much larger pistol, only packaged in an uncompromising compact size. What I’m about to say may shock the pants off some of you, but I’m going to say it. If I came to the NRA show looking for a new 9mm for concealed carry, this would be it. This would be the one. Of all of the guns here (and we’re talking hundreds of models and thousands of guns), the P30SK would be my first choice.
