    Default used usp .40 compact

    just bought a 1996 usp compact .40. it appears to have been fired or carried very little. DA trigger pull is 9# 2oz. SA is 4# 1oz. this is about 1# lighter than my 2014 usp compact 9mm. did the older usp's have lighter pull than the newer ones? thanks.....have not posted here in several years.

    Last owner could have swap out a spring or two.

    It's either that, or the springs have fatigued and softened in your 22 yo USP40c due to shots fired.

    Older USP Compacts came with the Match hammer spring (10 to 11 lbs), which is about 1 lb lighter than what comes in your 2014 USPc 9mm (12-lb standard hammer spring.) That explains the difference in poundage that you experience.

    thank you all for input. i suspect the hammer springs are different than the newer USP C 9mm. this pistol had to be a safe queen......the magazines [old style with snap in clips near bottom] have absolutely no wear. was going to go to range today but windchill is about 10 this morn so will wait til weather is milder. will try to post a picture or three.

    enclosing a couple of pictures. nothing remarkable about the pistol except the nice condition considering age. came with original case and owners manual. all serial numbers match.

    for some reason pictures upside down?????

    i sent the USP compact .40 to Robert Burke to clean up and check for parts that may have been modified. He called after working on it and said there was no evidence of modification. got it back today and rechecked trigger weights. double action is a little less than 9# and Single action is 3# 12 oz. very smooth. am impressed with Robert Burke's work, and really impressed with this pistol. p2000sk going to him to do the "carry package" next week. 3 weeks round trip seems to be his norm.
