    Absolutely impossible.

    I set my USP 45 up with a LEM/Match hybrid and No safety, I'm thinking of doing either the USP40 or USP9 up as LEM/Match hybrid with safety, (safe/fire only). Just for a good time.
    I'm gonna leave the USP T 45 as a DA/SA but make sure it's got all the match parts. It's a suppressor host only.

    Brain fart -- meant to say my P30s. The USPs still have their safeties, without decocker.

    When I looked at the parts for sale section I expected to see a lot of safetys for sale because of LEM conversions. Maybe that’s why I don’t?
    In addition to some of us keeping the safety lever on the gun when converting to LEM, in the case of a complete LEM conversion keeping the safety and other parts gives one the ability to put the gun back into its original configuration.

    After 20+ years, I'm now on the fence about *having* to have a safety lever. I recently purchased my first originally-equipped-as-LEM USP, and have to say I'm surprised at how comfortable I am without the safety. I have long preferred a safety as an additional safeguard against a negligent discharge, particularly when reholstering. A year or so ago I learned about being able to thumb the hammer down while reholstering, and that has led me to being more open-minded to safety-less LEM variants (still not comfortable with carrying strikers, unless equipped with a thumb-able striker blocking cover plate).

    The #1 benefit to going full LEM -- for me -- is elimination of thumb-safety lever interference, i.e., having to work around the lever with a "modern" thumbs-forward grip. With my full-size USP 45, I have left it V2 because I can shoot thumbs-forward without having trouble with my left thumb getting around the lever; I've changed my V2 USP Compact 45 to V1 because the lever and my left thumb really didn't get along, but I still wanted a safety for administrative handling (using the right hand to reach over and operate the lever). I'm now thinking seriously of converting at least the USPc 45 to safety-less LEM.
