    Hey guys, I just got my hk usp 40 refinished (the slide was ceracoated black) and the firing pen spring replaced. I took it to the range and put a couple hundred rounds through it, and came home and cleaned it. Upon reassembling the gun, I dry fired it DA and the trigger felt gritty, I don't know how to describe it felt like sand in there almost. I've never noticed this before. Is there something i can do to remedy this problem, or does it need to go to a smithy? I've taken this gun down and cleaned it numerous times, and never noticed so I don't think its something I've done. Any thoughts? T-I-A for any help

    Detail strip it and completely clean all parts and be sure to grease them good.

    Nah, it'll shoot in fine. They are always gritty when they are new (and yours basically is). I thought it was the trigger bar that caused it, but it could be the firing pin...
