If I were you, I'd get a USPt 45 instead of the 9. You won't hate the trigger on the SD-9, but you won't like it as much as the trigger on the tac 45. Also, when you suppress the USP-t, you will have a suppressor that works for your USP-ct also.Thinking about picking one up as a suppressor platform. Already have a .45CT. Am I going to hate the trigger on the 9? I understand that it doesn't have the same trigger. Also, no o-ring on the barrel. Does it make a difference at all?
With ammo prices the way they are, HK needs to wake up and pay more attention to their offerings of 9mm. The SD is about the biggest rip-off in the entire USP line. No match trigger or O-ring. Your paying a $250 premium for a threaded barrel. The 45 Tactical is about the same price and has the O-ring and the match trigger. Remember, if you buy a match trigger and have HK install it it will cost you $200.Thinking about picking one up as a suppressor platform. Already have a .45CT.

You could sell the HK barrel that comes with the SD, probably get enough $ to buy a Jarvis threaded O-ring barrel. Then, I would send to HK to have the trigger done. If you can find an SD for under $900, it may not be TOO expensive.Here's the thing. I already have a .45CT that has a suppressor on it. Right now I'm going with a 9mm for the sound. There's a substantial difference in the way a 9mm sounds suppressed and a .45 sounds suppressed (unless it's a Gemtech Trinity, I swear that thing is a loudener), and now I want the quiet one. I don't think it would be at all cost effective to buy a USP 9 and buy an HK threaded barrel or adjustable sights.
It would if you want to shoot lead, $250 for threaded Jarvis barrel with O-Ring
Thinking out loud, the o-ring shouldn't be hard to add I would imagine. Unless the 9 barrel is ungodly thin any machine shop could turn down the notch for the o-ring correct?
Almost impossible to machine HK barrel without O-ring to accept O-ring
How intensive is the match trigger install? If it's anything like the LEM install it shouldn't be too hard, but I'd rather not get in over my head if I can help it. The 9 also offers the jet funnel and 18 round mags. I've never heard anyone saying too much ammo is a bad thing.
$115 for the trigger, folks say have HK install it, otherwise warranty may be void, trigger often does not work right
Any other thoughts or considerations that I haven't covered?
Um... it's a great pistol. Just like my regular USP. But it's not worth as much as a USP tactical in 40 or 45.Don't listen to all the hupla the USP9MMSD IS A GREAT PISTOL ,AND XTREAMLY ACCURATE! ALOT OF PEOPLE BASH THEM ,BUT DON'T OWN ONE! I AM VERY HAPPY WITH MINE!!!!!
Please explain in more detail if possible, I've been thinking about buying an SD for my collection. I have a match trigger I could install myself. Do you think it would be more worthwhile to get a standard FS 9mm and a Jarvis threaded barrel for $250, sell the FS 9mm barrel? Given your last post, its OK if you consider this as a dumb question, LOL. Please just post any other thoughts.9SD is a "good" gun. I'm questioning whether the extra cost of a threaded barrel is worth the cost hit over a 9mm full size standard (No O-ring, etc.). I've had mine 6 months, and it's not spectacular. I'd rather shoot the 45 Tac or my Expert if I were looking for what the SD claims to bring.
If I were to do it all over again, I'd get a 9mm FS.
