What can anyone tell me about the HK USP match trigger. Is it worth the bucks (quoted $92 or $94 from the manufacturer)? What exactly does it improve? My intention is to make the shooting more fun at the range, but is it advisable for a self defense weapon? If I purchase it, does anybody know any HK qualified gunsmiths in the DFW area. Thanks, sleepy

See if you can find a dealer with a USP Tactical or USP Expert that you can dry fire. Both are equipped with the match trigger. CFI may have a gunsmith who can do the installation; I think it is an HK dealer.

Thanks for the suggestions. As much as I love HKs, their trigger's aren't very smooth. CFI appears to be only 15 minutes from the house and work. - sleepy

USP Match trigger... Work on a compact?

Will a USP match trigger set fit on a USP Compact? Anyone tried?

USP Match Trigger only for Full-size

Bennett

The Match trigger parts package is for full-size USP 9 (SN:24-021515 and higher), USP 40 (SN: 22-036242 and higher), and all USP45's.

Check out HK Pro Discussion boards. Nigel has them on sale for $80 per kit.

Good shooting

Ken

I have 2 USP .45 fullsize pistols with the HK
factory match trigger, and they are very sweet
and crisp..
My wife has a .45 USP compact and a gunsmith
friend of mine "customized" the trigger using
HK parts and his own skills...
This trigger is as sweet as my .45 USP's and
even as crisp as my
MK23...
He has a website where you can contact him..
http://www.egsw.com
I highly recommend his work..
My wife uses her .45 compact (with nite eye and the
UTL light) for personal defense...
The only way she will part with her compact is if I
trade her for my MK23 SOCOM...It's that good...
Tell Evan that Todd sent you...
