Short Fingers a Curse

Tonight I was handling several of my 45's and admittedly the one that felt the best and more natural was the XSE Commander followed by the SW1911SC. I love my USP-C 45 but when I put my hand around it, the index finger and thumb just barely meet. Short fingers and wider pistol grips are a curse. Wide to me, that is. It's no real problem but there is a definite difference it the way it feels over the 1911 grip. I can live with it if for no other reason I don't have to tweak or try different magazine/spring/follower combinations to get it to run. It's perfect as is right out of the box and the various rounds I've tried in it from first rack to last one in the magazine fired, it's as slick as Clinton. You can't argue with that. I wish the USP-C was just a little smaller in the grip but I know there's guys that have thumbs as long as my index finger and it's perfect for them.

Same here. Mine's a USPc9, and even the smaller dimensions are a bit too full for me. However, the pistol is so good that I'm beginning to get used to it. Even with a lower capacity, a slightly thinner grip would be welcome -- provided they change nothing else... BTW, one thing I would do away with regardless is the front trigger guard serrations; they are ugly and add nothing to the gun. I have yet to find somebody who uses the front trigger guard for holding this pistol. IMHO the USPc9 would look much better with a trigger guard like the USP full size, or the HK45 Compact, or even the P2000SK. Just my .02 worth.
