I'm eying a used USP Compact 9 at my local shop but I've noticed when rocking the gun back and forth...or tilting it up and down, I hear something sliding back and forth on the inside, seems to sound like a plastic piece. The gun's functions seem to all work fine. I'm not very familiar w/ the HK line, I was wondering if this is normal?

Yes, it's normal. It's the recoil spring buffer, a white plastic ring around the recoil spring.

Thanks for clearing that up....and yes, I agree, airfsoft is lame.

I know some people think that buffer sliding will give away their tactial advantage. Well, while I don't agree that a sliding buffer is going to give away one's position, if it bothers you, you can put a heavy grease like MiliTec-1 grease on the spring and it will keep the buffer from sliding so easily. After you put a few thousand rounds through it, it will start to get buggered up and will quit sliding around so much, but the buffer is still good.
