Just seeing who all has one, and if you do how do you like it? Id love to grab 1 for the collection, but as far as shooting goes would I be better getting an usp and then modding in the match trigger, sights etc.?

Basically I guess what im asking is, will a std usp with the upgrades shoot just as well as a out of box combat competition will?

Unless you are exceedingly skilled, the standard USP will shoot more accurately than you can. It does for me. But you'll enjoy the CC anyway, if you can find one.

IMHO yes.

It's cheaper if you build one on a police trade in LEM pistol if you can find one cheap and shoots just as well as one with Combat Competition on the box. A true collector will want it to be marked on the box as such but as far as I can tell that sticker is the only way to tell the difference from a factory CC and a clone that's built correctly.

+1 Lem trade is the way to go. I found a good deal on an early USP & ended up sending To HK for the CC treatment & overhaul.:41:

I've got one (actually two), and LOVE them! One in 9 and one in 40 - the hybrid LEM trigger is a work of art, a thing of beauty, an engineering masterpiece.

No reason not to build one - have fun and happy shooting!

I had the parts from the LEM & match kit prior to sending to HK. I did not have a few parts needed to convert the old style catch to the new style. I Just called the HK customer service number, had a RMA generated & shipped it to them. Shipping was about 70 to overnight. It went out on a Tuesday & came back two days later,on Thursday. I was very pleased with the quick turnaround & prompt service. IIRC it cost around $100 for the trigger work,additional parts & return shipping. I also had some non warranty issues repaired at the same time , hard to factor exact cost for the trigger job.
Trigger now breaks @4.0lbs
I now want a .40 to have both..

Awesome man, think thats gonna be the next hk, a full size 45 usp. It just so happens columbus is a little over an hour away, I wonder if they'd let me drop it off?

thats rediculous, so basically if I have issues with my p30, I have to pay shipping for no reason?
Don't shoot the messenger. I didn't write the policy.

I've had a CC clone, AND the real thing, and I couldn't shoot either one any better than the other...
As Terry already mentioned, build your own, as it *CAN* be much cheaper that way. :wink:

I love mine, I have ten magazines for it and shoot it all the time. Most people that try this pistol say it has the "best HK trigger they have ever felt"

That's because it DOES have the best HK trigger they've ever felt. :wink:
I think I was up to 16 mags with my last C.C. IIRC...?
