Got a handful of Heckler & Koch P30’s back from the Border Patrol. It’s not often we get a chance to see how much abuse our basepads can take.
The Border patrol uses them as part of the daily equipment. They are in active use each and every day. Scratched and abused, these basepads still work!
Why do we have this pile of parts if they still work? We recalled this part to fix an issue that could become a problem with years of hard use. We don’t want things to break so occasionally we will send out new parts just in case.
The Border Patrol is really happy with these parts. they sent a military Challenge Coin in appreciation for the work we do for them! #HK, #BorderPatrol#taylorfreelance
Check it out! TF ended up on the cover of UN12 as part of a custom HK VP9 build. It features our HK “Border Special” base pads and a custom color Overdrive magwell. Great picture on page 84 of the magazine if you happen across a copy. Need a base pad and a Overdrive magwell for your HK VP9? Checkout our HK parts at http://taylorfreelancestore.com/hk/ .
Our new HK Overdrive Magwells are now in stock. Totally new, the HK VP 9/40 version of our “Overdrive” magwell optimizes what you want in a competition-style magazine funnel:
*Legal for all the pistol games that allow magwells (1 5/8″ wide at widest point)
*Milled from 6061 aluminum billet
*Accepts factory magazines
*Textured for “grippiness” where you want it, smooth where you don’t
*Maximized funnel area
*Available in bright aluminum, black-, or red-anodize

These beautiful spiderweb magwells aren’t machinable at anything like an affordable price. Instead, we had them 3D printed in stainless/bronze matrix. The material offers much of the toughness of steel, with the beauty and color of bronze.
We polished the exteriors to maximize the “white gold” look of the bronze, but left the interiors and the pinky cut-out “as printed” to give the hand a little extra grip, and keep the price down. Fits the P30 line except the P30SK. Some minor fitting of the replaceable plastic backstrap may be required.
The technology of 3D printing in metals is very new, and (like all 3d printing) tends to be quirky. It took several months for the printing company to deliver these, and we’re still unsure if they’ll be able to deliver more. Suffice it to say, if you’re interested in a beautiful magwell like this, get yours now!
Just in this week, HK Competition basepads anodized red — also available in graphite black.
Fantastic additions to the HK VP9, P30, and P30SK, you can’t go wrong with this part.
Not only do they help the ergonomics of the HK for speed shooting (more positive reloads, less “hooking loss,” lower balance. . .) they work great with our stainless/bronze matrix magwells.
P30SK users like our competition basepads as well, using them as a “pinky extension” — increasing their control over HK’s top-of-the-line concealment gun.
These have been a strong seller in graphite black for months. When we asked our customers about doing some in red, they all rose to the idea, offering to buy them in advance! We’re happy to report we have both the HK Red and the Graphite Black models in stock.
