I was just wondering why the wonderful USPCompact 40 never got an optional two stage spring recoil buffer thst has worked so well on most of the other HK pistols? It seems like it wouldn’t be that hard to fo… and even SK line weapons use them….

I have two Compacts & wondered the same myself..
They went with the flat wire spring & the buffer instead..
The original full size USPs have the locking block spring loaded which IMO hasn't been improved on in 30 years which was designed for the 40 S&W USP Full Size & then the MK23..

IIRC Recoil Reduction System is in following H&K
*Mark23
*Full size USP - All Calibers
*P2000SK - All Calibers
*P30SK - All Calibers
(Not sure about the VP Series pistols)

It already has two stage spring, well they say the 2 spring setup is the USP's tragic flaw...lighter spring, but there are some sources of confusion why.

Whoever 'they' are/is could NOT be more wrong, actually the Recoil Reduction System does it's job remarkably well, it's the heart of those H&K pistols that use it, and allows those H&K pistols to achieve extraordinarily high round counts with less wear than would normally be present without the Recoil Reduction System

While it does work for wear and "felt" recoil reduction, there are some that believe that the 2 stage recoil feel makes shooting fast more difficult. I believe Bruce from Gray Guns was one of them. It's kinda felt weird to me as well, but I'm not sure if I shoot at a level where it's a detriment yet.
