Since a certain parts vendor is out of stock of the Universal Kit and I do not want to pay the additional $20 for the HK45 kit (I have an HK45). I searched and found a vendor that is selling LEM kits marketed as fitting all USP and USP compact models, but did not specify that it would for the HK45. I am assuming it wud probably work as I am wanting to install the LEM light trigger and do not need the trigger or hammer springs in these kits. Opinions? Was there an USP Kit made before that would not fit the HK45?

If you don't need the springs why not just call HK and order the hammer, cocking piece, elbow spring and hammer axle?

Is the LEM kit worth the money?
Yeah, I would say so based on my experience with SA w/ manual safety, DA/SA and DAO. I find it is easier to train with become more proficient with (i.e. become more proficient faster bc of the lack of safeties and manual controls). With putting less rounds downrange these days, I find that is a huge positive.

If the kit you're referring to is from HKSpecialist, then it should work with your HK45 (but not HK45c). The picture shows 1 HS and that's the one for USP, USP compacts, and HK45. The LEM kit from HKParts includes 2 TRS's: 1 light and 1 heavy (standard) LEM.

I was mistaken on the springs to swap out sorry.

HKSpecialist still has the LEM kit for $89.95 ($10 more than HKParts).
HK Specialist - Product Display

Yeah, HK specialist is where I found the kit. I just called the store and they said it would not work with the HK45....Hmmm.
It should work, based on the pic from that ad. But pics do lie sometimes. :wink:
If you're doing a Light LEM, you won't need the TRS an HS from the kit. So that should work. Or buy the parts from HK as Brownie has suggested. They're closed until 9/4, btw.

If you are converting your HK45 to light LEM, then it is my understanding that the USP/c LEM conversion kit would work.
Like you said, you are not changing any springs; you are just changing the hammer, etc.

Priced it out that way and it is more $$$ with the individual parts.
Not a chance. You're telling me you called HK and those 4 parts were more than $80?
