Do the USP 9mm recoil springs dampen recoil more than the P30L?

I have one and could probably meet up with the OP at Elite, but as stated by others it actually recoils the same-or-more than a lot of other pistols, so I'm not sure what would be the point of the "test."
If you want a heavier recoil spring, there are rods to use Glock springs... but why not go Glock?
If you want the absolute minimum recoil in a handgun, why not go with lighter loads and perhaps an even lighter spring to cycle them? Or get a CZ SP-01...
Also take into consideration that the USP9 is designed to fire M882, and probably wouldn't work with WWB or the diet loadings I'm talking about above.
[QUOTE=KalashniKEV;3375273]Well, maybe we can still meet up, but the USP9 is definitely harder to charge the slide and-also harder recoiling than a standard CZ-75B.
Your response is informative and revealing. Yes i found the CZ-75 to have an "unpleasant" recoil for my medical condition (tendernitis). If the USP9 is harder recoiling than the 75 it would not work for me. Before my tendernitis bothered me I had think about the recoil difference between the P30L and my M&P 9 and PX4. Now the recoil difference is large. In fact only my 226 and M11-A1 do not bother me.
Have I found my answer with my SIG's?
In search of a Goldilocks gun in 9x19 though, applying all factors which mitigate recoil and also aid in charging- Heavy frame, light loads, light recoil spring, good grip (not FAT or blocky) I would check out a CZ SP-01 and modify it slowly- test light loads first, then possibly investigate light springs to add reliability.

H&K engineers discovered this innovative Recoil Reduction System reduces the peak force acting on the USP grip to less than 300 Newtons (66 pounds).
Peak force shock on competing .40sw caliber polymer and metal framed pistols climbed to more than 5000 Newtons (1102 pounds).
The reduction in peak force should be similar in the USP 9mm
Kost , I have no idea what I just read; but sounds good and I’m in, sign me up! (I once ate 10 Raspberry Fig Newtons and thought that was a lot)
