    How many rounds do you have through it? Let’s see some pics of the whole gun.

    I'm not seeing anything concerning, the plastic around the rails would likely just be overloading... as long as the steel is in place you should be good.

    if the plastic is cracking that bad the metal has obviously been flexing and is compromised as well. personally, i would deadline that firearm if it was mine and start searching for a new frame or see if HK will replace it.

    Here it is being fired with all of it "cracks" without issue.

    You can say that again. Sucks that it happened, but that's a ton of use and anything will eventually wear out. Sounds like yours did...

    I read Federal cartridge put 297,000 rounds through a HK USP45 just replacing recoil springs.
    50,000 rounds of .45acp should not break a USP45. That is about 5 years of shooting.
    Send it to HK and see what they say.
