    The paddles are the best feature of HK pistols. So natural and ergonomic.

    When I shoot non paddle pistols I always find my thumb searching for the location of the button. It varies wildly from pistol to pistol. 1911s - Sigs - Berettas not much of an issue, others require a bit of hunting.

    I added a jet funnel to my USP9 Tactical SD. It's not a particularly accurate pistol, so perhaps I can get more lead downrange faster with the jet funnel.

    Before:


    After:


    I didn't realize that H&K made a metal plastic coated magazine for the USP9 until I saw it on robertrtg.com. The jet funnel requires longer magazines, so I got one metal and two that are translucent. They hold 18rds. The two long magazines hold 31rds according to the witness holes, but the package said 30rds for some reason.

    Decided to take the plunge. This is the V1 iteration, and came with three mags and night sights. It's a representative of it's time - no replaceable backstraps/side panels, no optic cut, and kind of big and clunky. I think it's great. I also note that H&K still includes an owner's manual instead of having to go online for one.

    Hey, I'm interested in the plastic coated steel 18 round mag. I have the translucent 18 rounder. What, if any, advantage is there to the poly coated steel mag?

    I'll have to defer to others regarding the plastic versus plastic coated metal. I've never had an issue with either. My guess, and I'm just speculating here, is that perhaps HK was told by a customer that they had to have metal magazines with their contract pistols. It's definitely an interesting magazine, but I can't say that I'm going to somehow get better real-world performance out of it.

    Yes, a military/police contract might be to blame or perhaps the gamers? A heavier mag would, in theory, eject faster....?
