    H&K USP mag. release

    Thank you for your time, and experience. I just traded a Para-ord p14 for a H&K USP compact in .45 and would like to know if there are any tricks for quicker magazine releases, as the H&K is quite different from other handguns, or is it just a matter of practice practice, practice?

    It is very quick you just need to practice more.

    I have a usp .40 fullsize, and once i learned you should use your index finger and not your thumb, it is faster reload than any gun I've used.

    For me it was easier with the middle finger. But it is very quick.

    I'm with SHOOT, use the trigger finger and the HK has the best mag dump in the business.

    Some people use both the thumb and forefinger.

    I prefer the HK mag release to traditional ones. I use my trigger finger and thumb.

    For me it's just so easy to quickly slide my trigger finger along the bottom of the trigger guard to hit the release.

    I also prefer the HK mag release over the regular push-button type---my very early (1994) full-size USP 9mm has a slightly larger release pads then the later pistols, I wish they still made them this way, even easier then the later small pads.
