I got a new camera yesterday, so I thought I would test it out, figured I haven't really posted anything on my USP.

Its a 9mm, I built this a long time ago, took well over a year to get all the parts in. I do have the click-adjustable sites for it, but I like the standard ones better.

Barrel was made by bar-sto, and is ported, also coated in something like barionine carbind (been forever).

Shoots like a dream ^_^









I'll get some other shots one of these days, including some HDR ones. Right now I am just still getting to know my camera.

Thank you ^_^

Yeah, point and click, I don't notice any muzzle flip either. In fact I am quite sure that it shoots a lot better than I do.

That thing must feel like shooting an all steel .22. Nice!

Last week I ordered the match weight for a stainless USP .45 I have to start the same project. I also have the factory adjustable sights but am hesitant to put them on. When I find a 6.02 barrel for the pistol I will consider changing the sights if the old ones do not work with it. I checked out several companies on line & Jarvis was the only one I can find who will make the barrel for me. Hope mine turns out to look as good as yours.

Great pics!

I got my weight enroute, and ordered a ported 6.02" barrel from Jarvis for my USPF 40 S/S.

Jarvis

I have found jarvis to be a very good company to deal with, have ordered 3 USP barrels from them and all were absolutely perfect.

Where'd you guys get the match weight from? I just sold a stainless USPf .45acp because I couldn't find the parts to build a match.

They turn up on the classified ads here, as well as Gunbroker, Sturm, GunsAmerica etc... every once in a while. You just gotta look out for them, and pounce when you can.

Last time i did a recon run, they ran about 200-250 bucks, but that could have changed by now...

I got mine ages ago, back when it was a whole different ball game to find parts, heck I got the mags before the restriction law was up (but they where legal via a nice loop-hole).

If I remember right a member managed to find a source and got some shipped into the states, however they didn't have the second part, that goes on the other side of weight, that I managed to get out of Australia.

Also turns out there are more than one style of weight, so be careful if you have to piece them together, and the 9mm/40 weight is different than the .45.

Actually had quiet a lot of road blocks piecing this one together, from the sites, to the barrels, to the mags, to the jet funnel, ha I don't think I managed to get two pieces from the same person, and parts use to come up maybe once a year. lol, had to know a guy who knew a guy who could get the parts for you.

Ah, I miss the hunt.

Looks great. Out of curiousity, how do the conversion guns like this shoot compared to the factory Match firearms? Same, better, worse?

Thanks.

Never got the chance to shoot a factory USP match 9, so I couldn't tell you. I suppose it all depends on how far you take the barrel, how well fitted, honed, and what not it is.
