Hi all,

I just placed a order for the trade in usp 40 cals at summit gunbroker. Very nice gentleman to deal with by the way, has anyone else looked at these deals? What do you guys think, I've nevered owned a .40 cal HK. Are they as soft as everyone says they are to shoot?

Yea, It does not have much recoil, I think due to weight, the firearm has some meat to it.

I think they are soft shooting. id also say that they are softer than many non HK brand 9mm. The usp is one stout beefy pistol

I've had this gun since it came out originally. I think it's the best full size gun you can get. I saw that sale, and if I didn't already own one, I'd buy. That's a very good price. The recoil does make the gun unique, and it does shoot like a 9mm. I had my Glock 23 magnaported and put in a DPM recoil spring, and it still had more muzzle flip and recoil than the HK USP 40 without a doubt.

I checked the website and those prices are fair. I picked up a used usp .40 at my local shop 8 yrs ago for just a bit less. USP's look sweet with a little wear

I looked at the picture advertised closely and I thought it had a date code starting with K ( KE, I think. ).

You may want to check the post by toosixty on this thread, just for you information:

I think if you decide to carry it, some of the guys have recommended doing the update on the firing pin if the date code is from the K era.

Is it tougher to get parts for this early version? I am thinking about buying one. Can these early versions be converted to LEM?

I have a KE dated USP 40, from ~1993-94. A while back I looked into updating it. I think HK might update it for free if you pay to ship it in, having communicated with them via email. I believe you need the update to be able to convert to LEM, but I forget the details at this point. I didn't end up sending it in as I'm pretty satisfied with it as it is., but it was tempting.

I have had other .40 caliber pistols and really disliked them. Until I fired the full size usp 40. Not snappy like the other .40 caliber pistols by other manufactures. In fact, I liked it so much I bought the UPS compact in .40 also in stainless this year. You will like this caliber with HK. Congratulations. It is the best full size .40 made and on the market.

He said so far the date codes are ranging from 99 to 04, is the updated parts more or less because excessive dry firing without snap caps can break the firing pin?
When ever I practice dry firing I always use snap caps.

My ffl got it today, unfortunately I won't have time to go get it till Friday but from the pics that were sent I would say that they are rough. I might have a frame issue based off of pics but like I said I won't know till I can actually get my hands on it. From the picture where the magazine release is it appears to be cracked or broken. So we shall see come Friday when I can physically check it out.
