HK P30 LEM Box to Match Review

Not too long ago Patrick Kelley released an Out of the Box and Into the Match review of the HK P30 L V3 in 9mm. In this video, Patrick puts its Law Enforcement Modification (LEM) model cousin through its paces. As always, a basic new gun cleaning and lube is the only prep work Patrick does before hitting the competition range. Patrick is on a roll with this HK P30 series of handguns. Like its cousin the P30 L, the HK P30 LEM is no slouch. As long as you apply good pistol handling fundamentals, this pistol hits its mark every time. Watch this video to see why Patrick is ready to add this handgun to his collection.

“What can you say, it is an HK! They run, they feel good and they are accurate…oh and the LEM trigger…neat, safe and easy to use.” —Patrick E. Kelley

About the HK P30 LEM Trigger

The HK Law Enforcement Modification (LEM) trigger system combines the advantages of a cocked striker component – constant level of trigger pull from first to last round fired – with a double-action hammer system. Using such an enhanced trigger system consolidates ease of use and safety into a convenient, innovative trigger operation—one that reduces the chance of unintended firing. And in case of an ammunition-related failure to fire, all that is needed is an additional second or third squeeze of the trigger without the need of first pulling the slide back to re-cock the pistol. The enhanced LEM trigger system combines the reliability of a double action revolver trigger with the crisp trigger of a single action pistol.
