While it seems everyone is raving about the striker-fired Heckler & Koch VP9, don’t forget that for decades H&K has been making hammer-fired guns. In this week’s American Rifleman TV web-exclusive video, American Rifleman's Joe Kurtenbach leaves Heckler & Koch’s Grey Room and heads back to the range with HK USA Marketing Director Bill Dermody to shoot the H&K P30, the German firm’s most modern hammer-fired gun. This version is the P30 with the LEM trigger, which has a mainspring that is fully cocked, but the hammer is down—giving a double-action length of pull but a single-action pull weight. Watch this web-exclusive preview and be sure to see this week's ARTV episode on H&K's Grey Room, Part 2 on the Outdoor Channel.
