The HK USP was made for the .40 round. My full size has never missed a beat and is easy to shoot. I carry it cocked and locked.

The BHP .40 is a nice one. I don't like it as much as the 9mm BHP, but it is my favorite .40.

Actually even though the XD is striker fired it is a true single action pistol. When you rack the slide the striker is fully cocked unlike some other striker fired pistols. Mark
A pistol need not have a hammer in order to be single-action.
And how about the ability of cocked n carry? Manual decocked? or even the ability to decock?
It take more than the ability to fully cocked a firing pin to be Single Action. When someone ask for a Single Action pistol recommendation, give him a SA pistol. Don't sneak in a striker pistol just because you are a fan for it.
There are many SA pistol out there (not many in 40 though).
Beside the CZ I mentioned, how about
Beretta Steel I
Tanfoglio Witness Elite
ps: Though, they are harder to find and the price will be an issue. Good luck.

How about the Springfield EMP in 40S&W. Mine cost right at $1000 and is a true 1911 style SA. It is also very accurate.
