    Default USPc 40 to LEM parts question

    Quick LEM question

    I have a USPc 40 that I want to convert to LEM. I believe it is currently a V1(safety, decocker, left side of gun). It already has a bobbed hammer, would I be better off just getting a full Universal LEM kit or getting the parts separately without the hammer for the conversion?

    I am a noob at this, HKs in general, and could use all the experienced info I can get to keep from spending on parts I don't need(need the $ for ammo).

    Thanks in advance

    You need the full LEM kit. The LEM hammer is different (2 piece plus the cocking piece spring) than what you have now. In addition, if it’s an older model year with the old style short catch you’ll need the new style longer catch.

    Conversion of a DA/SA USP series or HK45 series requires the complete LEM conversion kit. The kit however comes with both light and heavy trigger return springs (you'll only choose one) and two hammer springs (the long one for the USP series and full size HK45 and the short one for the HK45C).

    Excellent, thank you for the info.

    My date code is BA, which is year 2010 correct? Does this year need the new style longer catch?

    @Marine0303

    Thank you for taking the time to put together your LEM video. It was informative and helped me understand the parts associated with the conversion. I will definitely be moving forward with my conversion. Is it better to send it to a smith to have it done or is it a project I can tackle myself? I am mechanically inclined so I feel confident I could do it if there isn't a major benefit to sending it off. Thanks again for your time.

    Your pistol has the new style catch installed. The older catch will only be found in the early 90s pistols.

    My pleasure.
    Some guys like to try and do work themselves and you'll surely find a tutorial that can help you along with the process. If instead, you plan to protect your life with this pistol and would rather trust the work to a HK Certified Armorer, I'll be happy to help. You'll find my service is professional, fast and cost effective.

    I may take you up on that. I'll message you through PM. Thanks again
