As a gift to myself for retiring from the Army (Reserve), I purchased a new HK USP .40 Compact from our PX/BX here in Anchorage, AK earlier this week and it was a NIB pistol. I gave it a going over prior to purchasing it and after I returned home, I noticed that it had small ding on the left-side edge, next to the serrations on the front strap of the frame… Is it possible to have this “ding” filled and the whole frame re-dyed?? If so, who would do the best job at something like this??

I know that this doesn’t affect the function of this pistol at all, but I just can’t help but to “zero” in on this “ding” every time I look at it. As with all of my HK’s (HK-91, 93, 94, SP-89, P7-PSP and P9-.45) they’re pretty much “Safe Queens” and that's why I’m hoping that this can be repaired.

Trust me, I have two AR-15 rifles as well as an AKM and an AK-74 in my collection, which have their fair share of dings and scuff marks on them, which doesn’t bother me at all… “BUT” it’s a different story when it comes to my HKs!!!

Thanks for looking and for any assistance!!!

Congrats, and I'd sell the pistol you have, and buy another one if ya gotta have perfect. A repair, no matter how nice....would still bother ya. 2-cents.

Im not sure you can do a whole lot with the "ding"

You might be able to heat a metal thingey up with a torch and smoothe it over, but i dont know how you could re-texturize the plastic.

There are people whom can dye them, you can ask BIG_CHRIS_304 here, how he does it, as well as other professional dye jobs.

If its a new pistol, it is covered under your lifetime HK warranty. . . call HK and see what can be done.
