We show that for many moduli spaces M of torsion sheaves on K3 surfaces S, the functor Db (S) → Db (M) induced by the universal sheaf is a P-functor, hence can be used to construct an autoequivalence of Db (M), and that this autoequivalence can be factored into geometrically meaningful equivalences associated to abelian fibrations and Mukai flops. Along the way, we produce a derived equivalence between two compact hyperk¨ahler 2g-folds that are not birational, for every g 2. We also speculate about an approach to showing that birational moduli spaces of sheaves on K3 surfaces are derived equivalent.
