1. Tactical Sights - The stock sights are inadequate, plainly put. The rear sight is fully adjustable, however the lack of any kind of dot system is completely unacceptable. After some searching, I'm looking into Meprolight tritium night sights. Currently the application of white-out is working much better than what was previously there.http://www.hk-usp.com/item/29728_Meprolight_Sights__Lasers_MEP_21516__TD_AS_HK_USP_T.aspx
2. Metal Threaded 14mm- Muzzle â€“ Unfortunately, for reasons still not clear to me, KWA has chosen to outfit their NS2 pistols with plastic outer barrels. The thread has been replaced by a custom, aluminum, 14mm- thread, tapped and epoxied into place.
3. mock suppressor â€“ Unless I discover a very compelling reason, I will NOT be extending the inner barrel of the pistol. A mock suppressor will be for aesthetics and to enhance the tactical function of the weapon system. The mock suppressor will NO LONGER have the HK logo to fit with the USP design, but will instead have a custom design.
4. Standard 20mm Rail â€“ The USP design includes a proprietary rail system. Obviously this is unusable for the vast majority of accessories, so for this weapon system I must include a standard 20mm mount.
5. Flashlight â€“ Since no one I know of makes a replica of the USP specific UTL light that I know of, an Insight M3 type will suffice.
6. Laser â€“ This one is still up in the air, mainly because I'm worried the gun and light won't fit into a holster with a laser as well. If I do get a laser, it must be self-contained and separate from the flashlight, which leaves only the NcStar stacking laser as far as I can see.
7. Holster â€“ Again, it's a weapon system, not just a weapon. Therefore it must have a dedicated carry method. Blade Tech's WRS holster seems to be the only (but thankfully good) option.
8. Polished friction areas â€“ It may be superstition, but polished slide rails, controls, and magazine components could aid in the gun's smooth functioning and reduce the amount of paint build-up. To maintain aesthetic integrity, only hidden parts shall be polished, with outward most surfaces remaining black.
9. High-flow magazine valves â€“ Self explanatory. They add about 10fps.
10. Stronger hammer spring â€“ I don't know if one even exists for the USP NS2 yet, or if current aftermarket USP ones can be used. All I know is that it would increase the gun's power, and power is good.
11. Designation â€“ I'm tossing around the idea of OSA: Offensive Handgun System. Maybe I'll just keep the USP Tactical designation, however, I think it's appropriate that since I'm giving the gun a make-over it receives a new name. If I do figure out a good name, maybe I can some how get it engraved in the slide for a nice touch.
12. More magazines â€“ Self explanatory. Because the goal is a weapon system and not a sidearm, extra magazines are a must.
13. Barrel O-ring â€“ I don't even know if this is possible, but there is a cutout in the current barrel for an O ring to stabilize the barrel and aid in firing. KWA's official parts diagram shows an O-ring used to be there, but representatives from KWA have told me that the O ring was removed because customers kept forgetting to remove it before disassembly (seems like a strange answer to me). In any case, I want it there.
Those are the current objectives and standing. I'm looking forward to the discussion and seeing what everyone thinks!
