I am told the Ameriglo front sight will fit the Expert. It's 8.9mm tall.I agree.. Get one while you can.. however I prefer blacked out target sights to any other kind of sight (for range use). They are extremely easy for me. You could perhaps swap out the front sight with a fiber optic/tritium instead of using nail polish. Not sure who makes one though. I'd just get it and not look back. But consider the .45! I'm bias though.
Thanks, william. Will do when I get it this weekend.Great info. If i end up wanting to swap mine out i'll check out the Ameriglo....
CONGRATS! Awesome! Post some pics and give us a range report when you can. I'm long over due for range time with my Expert. Haven't shot it in 3 weeks. I'm really slippin' here!
I think the Jet Funnel + mag help balance the gun nicely. I have JF on my two CC's and the feel is very well balanced. I am sure it'll be the same with this .40 Expert.Awesome! You're lucky in Florida you can take advantage of the jet funnel/high cap clear mags. In CA the 40 is without these. I held one when I got my .45... they had my .45 Expert, a CA legal .40 Expert.. and a .45 Elite (which I was tempted to buy as well)
I'm sure it does help with the balance. They look very nice. Kind of sets the gun apart from other USP's. . I still don't mind not having it on my .45 though :wink:I think the Jet Funnel + mag help balance the gun nicely. I have JF on my two CC's and the feel is very well balanced.

According to this post, it is. I don't have one to confirm, but you could PM fatmat.I was not aware there was a front nite sight available for the Expert. I like it, I used flourescent model paint on both my 9mm Expert & Elite models for better visibility. But I am really digging the front nite sight replacement for the Expert. Is it the same for the Elite also ?
The grip texture on sides and front/back straps are amazing. Perfect. Sweaty palms don't have a chance against it .Just got the Expert 40 V1. It is really an excellent piece of work - an almost perfect combination of features with great accuracy. This is no CCW though! I put 450 rounds through it in the first 2 weeks. Some people complain about the rough grip on the front and back straps, but when you are shooting it, you don't think about it at all. It does not rough up your hands. You definitely want to have a good grip on it and you get it.
