    I have been looking all over and can't find anyone or any store with a USPc .40 in a Variant 3 for sale.

    Everyone either has Variant 1 or LEM, nothing else. I called damn near every gunshop in my area and not even their distributors can get them, I also checked GunsAmerica and found nothing, and I checked the classifieds of every gun forum I could think of and found nothing.

    Where can I buy a USPc .40 in Variant 3?

    Thanks

    I looked too, if you find one you're a better shopper than me. You're probably going to have to buy a V1 or LEM and have it converted or buy the parts and do it yourself.

    I'm not sure it would be a great idea to get a V3 anyway...

    V1 is meant to be carried cocked and locked. V3 would be carried DA? If you're going to do that, you should probably just get an LEM trigger setup.

    I don't want to carry cocked and locked, and I hate the LEM trigger. If I wanted to carry cocked and locked then i'd just carry my Springfield 1911 TRP.

    All I want is a traditional DA/SA gun, I don't know why it's so friggen difficult to find one in a USPc.

    V3 basically replicated a SIG function, traditional DA/SA trigger and a decocking lever. Some people prefer it, I'm still in the air. :dunno:

    That's exactly what I want.

    I'd love to get a standard 229, but my thumb can't reach the decocking lever and that's no good.

    Oh I know... but no one likes the HK DA trigger (or the Sig one for that matter). I don't understand why anyone would want to use the DA pull - it pretty much guarantees a poor first shot.

    and if you can't find a V3, it costs like $20 to convert it between Vs.

    I'd have to disagree, maybe I had an oddball, but my USP45 had one of the smoothest (albeit long) DA triggers I've used. I'd only rate a very well worked Python over it.

    For that matter, my 226 has a decent DA pull, but then I do shoot it a bit.

    I don't mind the HK trigger at all, but I always figured it was because I'm a noob. All I hear from people is how the HK DA trigger is shit.

    I still prefere the SA pull over the DA pull.

    OR

    No, the trigger probably is just fine. People like to bitch about things. They also like to have excuses why they can't shoot good "Well the trigger on this gun sucks, that's why". I can honestly group my Makarov about the same as my 1911 at combat distances (7 yards) and the Mak has a horrible trigger pull. In SA it pegged the trigger gauge at 10 lbs, I'm guessing DA is ~15-18 lbs. It's all in the trigger control and working around the gun's faults to be proficient.

    My USP's DA pull is shit compared to almost every other DA gun I have shot (autos, revolvers, anything). Not just long and heavy (nearly 13 pounds) but gritty as hell. The SA pull is 100x better, but still not as good as the SA on a SIG or a nice revolver.

    I almost never shoot it DA and I carry it cocked and locked.

    :confused:

    So, V3 just doesnt have a "safety" on the control lever?

    So, why not get a V1, and just not use the safety? :confused:

    people do like to complain about triggers. I never had a problem with the DA pull on my USPc but then I put it down for some months and was shooting the 1911 a lot. Now when I go back to it I totally screw the first shot! But realistically, that's because I'm out of practice with the weapon, nothing to do with the pull being "bad"
