went out today to the range and shot my USP for the first time. When i came back home to clean it, i found some dents inside the frame which i'm not really sure if there were in there before i shot the gun. i was wondering if anyone would know what could've caused them, if they're a sign of an impending failure or if they're perfectly normal.

here are the pics:

Don't worry about them, from what I can see from your pics, they are normal. I just pulled mine apart and have some of the same ones. By the way, what were you using for ammo? Looks really dirty.

I don't think I'd worry about them, either. Not yet, anyway. But I do believe I'd want to use a lot less oil while shooting :shock: The USP doesn't need much. Only a drop on each of the metal parts that connect with the slide.

beleive it or not, that's the amount of oil it came with from the factory, or rather the distribution center in Sterling VA. Perhaps they figured they should oil it a lot to keep it safe from rust?


ammo used was Remington UMC 230 gr.

anyhow, it shot great and was very accurate. suprisingly accurate for someone who had very little experience shooting .45 handguns. I was constantly hitting the bullseye from a range of 15 yards. Recoil was pretty severe but im not sure if its less or more than the average 1911. Any comments on that?
