HK P30 tactical - is there such a thing?

HK often makes a "Tactical" version of its top handguns, most visible by the protruding, threaded barrel. Is there such a version of the P30 or will this one be more marketed as a police duty gun instead of a military sidearm, thus lacking a tactical version?

"Tactical" model handguns are often defined by two (most notable) things... the threaded barrel, which PSP kindly provided the link to, and tall suppressor sights, which Heinie makes, and can be found at the same website the barrel is located at... under all things P30.
If you like the P30, which is hard not to like, a DIY tactical model is but several hundred more dollars away.

Thanks for the information - but I could only do with a off-the-shelf package like the USP 9SD, because I live in Europe and I reckon it would be almost impossible (and yet if, still rather unaffordable) to import a separate barrel... Guess I have to stick with the USP if I wanna have it "tactical", though I reckon the P30 is a step forward in ergonomics and design...

The P30 is amazing!!!

I just bought one - my first HK - and its ergonomics are superior to anything else I've held. Unfortunately, I don't believe HK officially manufactures a P30 threaded barrel. You'd be better off buying a P30L barrel and paying a smith to thread it at this point. That's how the barrel HKparts offered was manufactured. I presume it must work and be safe.
You have the right to be offended.
