    Default USP9c question

    Just a question, not a complaint, but I will admit it doesn't do anything for me.

    Does anyone know what the purpose of the "hidden" hammer is in the USPc pistols. I'm assuming there was a purpose but I'd just prefer that it just stuck out so it was accessible like all of my other hammer fired pistols.

    More snag-less. Just order you a hammer with a spur.


    Anyone who legally can, should carry a firearm and train to use it.

    Only if you carry it decocked which I don't see any reason to do.

    Well I run mine in V3 so decocked it is. No real need for spur. If you need to put it down on a round, just decock. Plinking in SA fronm the get go ain’t what it’s made for. But, just order the hammer you want.

    well to each his own but it's cocked and locked for me. Saying "Plinking in SA fronm the get go ain’t what it’s made for" is just naive.

    Perhaps, but like you said, to each his own. I do agree that a V1 should have come spur’d.

    Yeah, I'd prefer a spur on my USPC 45, but I didn't change it. Had it since '06.

    As @dguillory said, the snubbed hammer is to provide less to snag during concealed carry, which I like better than fully open hammers. But if you want, I believe HK has a longer spurred hammer.

    The bobbed hammer is ‘designed’ for Cond-1 carry, regardless if the difference is minimal.
    I have the USP9c and ‘next genr’ P2000, both DA/SA. Since you carry the P2000 DA, the spur works. Although I carry my USP9c DA, I still retained the bobbed hammer. But in the USP9c, spur/bob is user preference.
    I believe there are Euro USP9c there were issued with the spur.

    flphotog, there were a bunch of "carry" guns that came out with the bobbed hammers, during that time frame. (Still are, tho now they're leaning more towards "internal hammer" designs) Both in the autoloaders, and the revolvers. The intention is that it's supposed to cut down on snags, but it also cuts down on hammer weight, as well. Theoretically, that cuts down on trigger pull weight. Theoretically.

    I've never been a fan of bobbed hammers, and yeah...I'd replace it if I got a pistol that had one, and had the option. I want a hammer that I can get my thumb on, dernit!

    It also runs along the lines of the LEM variation. There is no single action with the LEM, so there's no manually cocking the hammer. Therefore not as much need for a spur on it. Theoretically.

    I've seen them with what passes for full spur (HK USPs have what I consider to be a minimalistic spur in comparison to some others) bobbed, and almost completely flat.
