This gun has the best ergonomics of any pistol I%u2019ve shot. Both in how it feels and how easy it is to actuate the various releases. It has adjustable grip panels on the sides and blackstrap to customize to hand shape. It also has the best ambidextrous slide release lever I%u2019ve experienced. It is very easy to actuate with the trigger finger without adjusting your grip or lowering your arm from a sight picture. Same with the mag release. I use my middle finger to come up and tap it down for the release. I actually prefer this style than side buttons now. Some people take issues with this style but I find it more functional. Again You can do An action reload without ever adjusting your grip or dropping your arm from a sight picture because your trigger hand can manipulate all the levers and releases.
From just the ergo aspect I find this to be superior pistol. After buying and shooing many pistols, Sig Sauer, Springfield, Glock, Ruger, etc. I realized the most important thing beyond price and brand is ergonomics.
Beyond that is a very smooth trigger with a very 1 to 1 visible tactile response to trigger squeeze and seeing the hammer cock back. Some guns have a lot of take up or dead space before the hammer moves. But this HK gives a good idea of when it%u2019s going to pop. The LEM trigger is very nice and very light and smooth.
The fit and finish is very top notch as you would expect from HK and the price. It looks and feels quality. Those with a country of origin bias the gun says Made in Germany and the magazines are made in Germany so no cut corners on parts or components. Another bonus is it shares the same mags with the VP9.
I really dig the sights on the gun. Brief exposure to light makes them radiate quite brightly, better and quicker than the Siglite sights on my P226.
After well over 1000 rounds I say this is a very reliable and comfortable gun to shoot. It manages recoil well consummate to its class and weight as a duty/compact pistol. With the LEM trigger I find it very good and accurate with rapid fire shooting drills.
I highly recommend this pistol and am hard pressed to think of a better one of its type.
