Well, Hoser....My USP was a compact, so replacement springs
were not available in heavier weight....I just changed them
real often, and didn't use the heavier loadings. I did have a
Bar-Sto barrel made in .40 Super, but the stock barrel for
.45s should work just fine. Remember: Fresh springs are life!

really didn't build it with self-defense or hunting in mind.

muzzle flash and the lack of hair on the front side of my
body that kept me from carrying the little monster!
I agree with both of you. I like the idea of the .45 Super, but just looking at it from a safety angle, it would be better if you could start out with a gun that already shoots that round or go to a competent smith and make sure that your favorite blaster is properly converted to handle and fire that round.

I do believe that the HKs were made to handle high-pressure .45 loads (probably to include the Super), but I'd still have a good smith go and do a once over. In that case, I think that going straight to the source, as it were, would be the best route to go - Ace's .45 Super.

Not trying to sound like an endorser, just my 2 cents worth.

The manual that came with my .45 USP Compact states it will handle +P+ ammo but I have never seen a specification for that loading in .45acp. But it sounds as if the H&K's would be fine with the .45 Super.
