I just had to go and do it. I could not have all 1911's. My HK USPc .45 in Stainless just arrived from Buds and I DROS it on Thursday. After shooting many polymer guns. The USP/HK series has the closest controls of the 1911. Same grip angle and in the short time I have shot it my muscle memory is a seamless transition from 1911 to USP.

Some stock eye candy.

What version of trigger and safety did you get?

V1 Right handed safety and decock. Can still carry it Condition 1.

As you have followed the tradition of Condition One, JMB would certainly allow forgiveness and even, in his inquisitive greatness, understand your curiosity and interest in something new.

However, do not ever wear a "No Compromise H&K" style T-shirt.

Congrats on the crunchen-ticker purchase!
:D

IMO you should get your HK armorer to remove decock and run it lock/fire. If you leave the decock feature then do not ride your thumb on top of it like you would a 1911.

I doubt you have lived your life sinless. I will confess at the first range trip. :D

Thanks I will look into that. Any suggestions on a HK smith?

Nice pick, and nice handgun. Now you can be an elitist snob :D

I kid, I kid but at least you can speak of owning both JMB's design and the HK as well.

I thought 1911 owners were already snobs. Well according to GlockTards! :p

Good question...I see you are also in the south bay of LA...

Any other south bay calguns HK fans out there wanting to post a local HK smith?

I'll see what I can find from HK...

I'd shoot if before worrying about removing the decocker. All my friends and family with HK's "ride" the safety and no one has an issue with decocking it by accident.

Good choice in gun. Now sell the rest of the 1911's to fund more HK's.

A HK45 is the last HK I want. I could never get rid of my 1911's especially after I just picked up this beauty last month. :p:p:p Yes its snobbish!

No sin in buying the HK, but I've got to admit I just don't get them. I have a few 1911s but also have "the other" stuff - a CZ 97, a few BHPs, a Tanfoglio in 41 AE - so I'm by no means pure 1911. Having used the big HK "whatever it is" with the threaded barrel I though it was OK, but nothing to swoon over. My Smith 745 has better (Whichita) sights, better trigger - OK I didn't shoot better groups .... :(

So I get that the HK is a nice gun, I thought so anyway - but I don't get the high "ooh & ahh" factor of their pistols.

Meh. I kind of wonder, if John Moses Browning were alive today, what would he think of using polymer in guns? My guess is he would heartily approve and have designed stuff that would put other guns to shame. He was nothing if not innovative, and from an engineer's standpoint (which is after all what JMB was), how could you not like a material that was strong, lightweight, durable, impervious to the elements, and could be easily shaped and molded into almost any configuration?

Buh but but then the 1911 snobs couldn't make fun of Tupperware fanboys!:43:
