    Default USP 40 Compact

    Hello, I am new to this site and do not own any H&K products. I have been reading about the USP 40 Compact along with the Walther PPQ and the S&W M&P Shield. Out of these three I will pick one after I get a better feel for them. Meanwhile I have a question about the H&K, the (Specially designed captive recoil spring assembly with polymer absorber bushing). This bushing is it something that will wear out after a while and need to be replaced. I have a couple other pistols with some of these plastic parts that need replacing and am not wanting anything like that in any new pistols. Thanks for any information on this subject.

    The short answer is no . It's more of a guide bushing than absorbing . I had a USPc 357 SIG with I don't know how many rounds on it , looked like new . The USPc 40 compact is a nice pistol !

    I own a couple of the firearms you've mentioned. Although I like them all, and I don't know what your usage will be, I like my P2SK the best.

    I usually carry a S&W 686 plus, but I am going to try something slimmer like a semi auto pistol. And I want one that I will not have any trouble with as a wheel gun has no FTF or any other issue like that.

    I recently purchased a USP 40 compact and like it a lot. As soon as I get a good holster, it will probably become my EDC. I consider the USP40c to be at the large end of cc guns and is not really that thin when it comes to semi-autos, the Shield is the thinnest of those mentioned.

    If those are also on your list, I would lean towards the P2000/sk. The USPc is an issue weapon and I also have the P2000. I find the USPc grip uncomfortable after shooting 100+ rounds or so at once. The P2000 is more comfortable especially with the correct size blackstrap, plus if you ever weapon mount a light/laser you can mount whatever you want.

    Only issue I've had with my USPc was a FTF/FTE on an issued mag after several years of use. I guess some people use Wolff springs to remedy. Mags are interchangeable if you end up with both :)
