    You're going to wear out before your HK does. ;-)

    Your LGS is full of ****. Unless they have great prices, don't shop there anymore. That is some seriously bad advice.

    Deal with it when you get there.

    I've replaced the recoil spring a bunch, went through a few extractors, and replaced other little parts as PM, but it's got the original barrel.

    My HK's are all of superior build quality compared to my Glocks.......

    The USP is one of the most rigorously-tested sidearms ever--- have heard stories of 100,000+ rounds, without failure--- samples will vary. [IMG class=inlineimg]https://www.hkpro.com/forum/smilies/wink.gif[/IMG]

    He must have been thinking about Raven, or Jimenez, or Davis, or one of those other "high quality" guns. Seek a second opinion!
