If you could fabricate them, I bet they would sell here. They are really hard to find. I don't think HK sold them seperately so the chances of buying one seperate from a match gun are few and far between.

That is a nice price for an awesome pistol. The USP .45 is a great pistol. One of my favorite to shoot.

Welcome and yes I'd say you got a good deal.

I paid a couple hundred more for my HK45 this week, but there were three magazines, so that eased the pain a bit. :)

Someone recently had polished their slide and it looked like glass. It was awesome, but he recently sold it. Since you are into working with metals I'm sure you can figure out a way to make yours look really nice. Post pics please.

There have been some match weights available seperately. They sold for around $300 (+/-50 or so). I don't know of any available now, but a complete Match pistol can be had for just over $2000.

ETA: if you're a fabricator, shouldn't you be able to get an extended barrel for your gun, and design your own weight from measurements. It's going to non-authentic, anyway, so who cares if it isn't exactly like an HK original (which might be a property rights infringement, anyway)?

I put the 45c mag release lever on my USP and it made a world of a difference. Best $25 I've spent on my firearms

No bennies to removing the HK finish from the barrel at all, sure to invite plenty of rust to the barrel/interior of the slide. Previous owner of my USP .45 polished the barrel hood, that was enough for me to send it to Virgil Tripp for hard chrome on that barrel, slide, slide release. Welcom Home jaceh14!

I polished the top of my barrel hood as well, because it came without the HE finish, and was looking a little beat up. That was over 10 years ago not a spec of any discoloration since. Also gave the feed ramp a nice shine while I was at it. Made cleaning the ramp much faster.
