    Default Polymer Framed Pistols

    @Marine0303

    James,

    Of all of the polymer framed pistols that HK now makes is the USP the easiest of them to work on?

    I read your post on the VP9 Armorer's Class and I noted you stated there were a lot of parts and probably should not be disassembled by someone that does not have some formal training.

    I have embraced the USP line and that was the reason I wanted to take your USP armorer's class some time.

    Thanks,
    Jeff

    Jeff,

    The USP is the basis for all of the hammer fired pistols that followed it. What I mean is that they are all just modifications from it and are very similar in their form and function. As such, working on a P2000, P30 or HK45 is very familiar and easy if you have the basis down. Furthermore, all are rather robust in their construction.
    The VP9/40 is still a robust pistol in complete form, but some of the internal components are a bit more fragile and it really was not designed to be repeatedly and easily disassembled and reassembled.

    Adding to what James just mentioned , I work on all of my HK pistols , including my P7's . I replaced a sear spring in my VP9 years ago and decided then I'll never go into one a again. There's a couple of areas that are tricky at best to deal with . I still own 4 of 'em and the stock pistol performs just fine. HK / Germans in general design stuff that doesn't really lend itself to modification , it functions just fine out of the box , especially the VP series.
