    I would definitely determine that all the after market parts are all installed correctly and not loose or missing.

    Other thoughts:
    How is your recoil spring/guide rod assembly looking?
    Limp wristing can always cause feeding issues. I had to learn to be more conscious of my grip due to some malfunctions with the VP9 caused by poor handling before I could relegate the grip back to my subconscious mechanics. With it happening once every few hundred rounds, it makes me wonder if you just have a bad purchase on the firearm from time to time.

    It is worth noting that the FTFs began after the installation of the match trigger kit. Where I am from that is called a clue. You might consider allowing the person who installed the trigger look at it.

    This goes to another topic tangentially. If you can afford it, it is a good idea to have a 2nd identical defensive handgun in reserve for this sort of inevitability.

    If it were the magazine springs, I'd assume the problem would be more frequent. And I assume you're trying with more than one magazine, unlikely they'd all be going out.

    Post #8 with regards to the stop screw being too far out seems like a reasonable explanation.

    @Hyno I'd suggest turning the stop screw all the way in and shoot the gun again. If you have no more FTF's, then congrats you've found the culprit.

    Well, considering that I have my overtravel screw nearly all the way in, there's no way it is the cause. It's as if I don't have an overtravel screw at all to be honest with how far in I have it set. Is serving no purpose really.

    My USP is a range gun. No need for another identical piece. I think I'm going to purchase a new RSA and see if that solves it, and if not, it will go into HK.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Limp_wristing

    Limp wristing is a phenomenon commonly encountered by semi-automatic pistol shooters, where the shooter's grip is not firm enough and the wrist is not held firm/straight enough to keep the frame of the firearm from traveling rearward while the bolt or slide of the pistol cycles.


    Seems some people are afraid of words they dont understand

    Personally, I think that will resolve your problem.
