    If I were staring down the barrel I'd piss myself.

    The vortex not only reduces flash, but through a gyroscopic effect reduces muzzle flip and felt recoil significantly. Reports also indicate a significant increase in muzzle velocity and accuracy. It also looks badass.

    Nice. Are you a lefty or is it DAO? Have you tested the flash hider yet?

    The O-ring works as a barrel bushing to increase accuracy. It is also more resistant to the elements than 1911 style bushings.

    Left handed metric threads. (Just another beauty shot)

    Conventional rifiling yeilds tighter groups than polygonal rifling. The thread protector keeps the threads safe from damage.

    Any questions? Range report Wednesday.

    It sings!

    The prongs on the vortex sound like a light tap on a tuning fork when you rack the slide. Kinda sounds neat.

    Oh MAN! That's a sweet looking gun. I can't wait for the range report. I think you might just have sold me on USPs in general. And it even sings too? :neener: :D

    No flash supressors on pistols in Kali, not to mention threaded barrels. Nice though.

    CCFA does make a standard legnth O-ring barrel for Californians. It just doesn't look as cool :D

    True, the O-Ring barrel by itself is neat, but with the threads and vortex, it's badass.

    Is that the same pistol you got from CDNN? That's badass! You need a UTL though!!

    I'll have to wait for my B-day to get lights and such. A UTL or similar is the next mod. I blew all the hanukkah money on the barrel/flash supressor combo.

    Yes, that is an CDNN police trade in. Looks pretty good for a 11 year old police gun, huh?

    Can someone link me up to a GG&G rail adapter for the HK. I like the M3 better than the UTL and it's much less expensive if you look around.

    Looks real good! I have the Flash Suppressor for my Tactical and love it. After I get my USPF 40 in Stainless, I plan to do my HE model the same as you have.

    If you want a USP40F in stainless, grab one from CDNN. They are immaculate, just look at mine. They're from the same lot. They are the original models from 1993, but they have the upgraded triggers. The barrels are not polygonal (that happened in 94, but who cares if you're swapping them?)

    Had a CCFA barrel/Vortex suppressor setup for my USP .45. Man, I loved that combo. Great groups, awesome flash reduction, etc. Sold it because I was all but certain I was moving to CA... now I want it back.

    cheers

    man, i can't wait to play around with this thing wednesday.

    By the way, if anyone orders from CCFA, order by phone. The guy is really polite and knoledgable. He doesn't rush you or BS and explains the features of his product well. Model businessman.

    all my gun buddies have been stopping over and drooling. :D

    Can't wait to shoot this tomorrow. I'm leaving for the range at 12:30. Should have the report up before dinner.

    BTW: Final cost for everything you see including all accessories (fobus holster/double mag holder, night sights, 3 high caps) is just under $1000. I'm including shipping charges in that figure. Still far cheaper than a USP tactical with night sights, 3 high caps and a holster.

    Ditto my experience of ClubSoda with CCFA. No, I'm going to keep my local dealer happy and purchase a NIB, its going to match my USPC Stainless that I alreadycarry, I prefer the stainless for carry.

    If it was going to be a range pistol, yeah, I would get it from CDNN.

    true, if you want a show piece, buy new. There's a tiny bit of holster wear on my gun, but i think it just builds character for a self defence gun.
