Default Hk usp compact 40

I was thinking of buying a usp compact 40 but not sure how the recoil is? Can anyone tell me how the recoil is and is it controllable

I have the usp compact .45 and it has very soft recoil compared to other compact .45s but then again the usp compacts are more like a mid-size gun. Full-size usp's have a recoil reduction system and the compacts have a plastic buffer on the recoil spring. I'd say go for it

I tried out the compact before buying the full size USP. Recoil is not bad at all compared to other platforms that chose to place .40 in a 9mm frame. The spring on HK is top notch and greatly reduces recoil. You can see the spring in this thread......http://www.firearmstalk.com/forums/f15/german-stamped-hk-usp-40-a-92349/

That one is the full size, this is what the compact recoil spring assembly looks like.
