My buddy just picked up a USPf 9mm. Unlike my usp's (I have a .45 Full and a 9mm Compact), the mags are made of plastic - which I knew was gonna be the case - dont know why they do that but nonetheless.

The problem I had was not that they were plastic, but that they rattled around once inserted into the gun. When I put my metal mag into my USP .45, there's no play with the mag in the magwell - it's firmly in. These things are wobbling around. I don't think it causes any mechanical problems to the gun but it sure makes a very expensive gun seem very cheap, very quickly. Is this normal?

My HK mags are metal for both the .45 and 9mm USP.
I guess new ones are plastic. I prefer metal also.

They are metal for the USP COMPACT 9/40

They are plastic for the USP FULLSIZE 9/40

All USP .45 magazines are metal.

Are they wobbling with rounds loaded or unloaded?

I wouldnt worry about it one bit either way.

Marksman14,

You're right my USP 9mm mags are plastic. How did I miss that? Haven't
shot it in a while, not my favorite caliber.

They do wobble when inserted into the pistol.

I agree. As long as the pistol functions properly, I wouldn't worry about
the magazine wobble.
