The new H&K P30L is a long slide version of the P30 pistol. It is identical to the P30 with the exception of having a 4.44″ barrel instead of the P30 3.86″ barrel. The sigh radius is 0.57″ longer.

    These should do well in Canada. Anything with a barrel shorter than 105mm (4.14") is classed "prohibited weapon."

    Yes they are identical except for the barrel and slide length. L stands for longslide. I have been looking at them myself and decided on the l version. The extra half inch still improves accuracy and is still a decent carry weapon.
