The first of the many recent additions to the Heckler & Koch
handgun line, the P2000 and incorporate features of the successful HK
USP Compact pistol with the latest innovations of HK engineers. A
refinement of a design created for several European police agencies, the
P2000 is available with a traditional double-action/single-action
trigger mode and the LEM/CDA (Law Enforcement Modification, also known
as Combat Defense Action) trigger system first introduced in 2001 on the
USP Compact "LEM" model.
The HK Law Enforcement Modification 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
Developed especially for a U.S. government agency, the
Law Enforcement Modification (or LEM for short), is a unique trigger
mechanism created specifically to improve the trigger performance and
reduce the weight of the Double-Action Only (DAO) trigger pull on HK
With this mechanism, HK pistols can be fired like a
standard DAO semi-automatic pistol where every round is fired by simply
pulling the trigger fully rearward with the hammer starting at the
forward rest position. The design of the proprietary HK LEM system
allows the weight of the DAO trigger pull to be reduced to a smooth and
constant 6.18 - 8.5 pounds (27.5 - 37.8 N) because the two-part hammer
is pre-cocked every time the slide moves rearward. Trigger pull on
conventional double action pistols is 12 - 15 pounds (53.4 - 66.7N).
The unique LEM pre-cocked hammer system combines the
advantages of a cocked striker component (constant level of trigger pull
and short trigger travel from first to last round fired) with a double
action hammer system. Optional adjustment (by HK certified armorer) can
bring the trigger pull into the 5.5 pound (24.5 N) range.
Using such an enhanced trigger system consolidates ease
of use and safety into a convenient, innovative trigger operation �?" one
that prevents unintended firing. And in case of an ammunition-related
failure to fire, all that is needed is an additional second or third
pull of the trigger without the need of first pulling the slide back to
re-cock the P2000. The enhanced LEM trigger system combines the
reliability of a double action revolver trigger with the crisp, precise
trigger of a single action pistol.
