It seems to me from reading on this board that my Kimber Custom Eclipse and maybe my Glocks are +P rated. However there is nothing in the manuals about +P (probably a CYA thing for the MFG). I had a Tarus revolver that was +P it said so on the Tarus website but again nothing in the manual.

Correct me if I am wrong, but most modern day handguns are rated for +P ammuntion. The only problem is that it reduces the life span of the weapon. But still contact the manufacture regardless.

I didn't see .45 super on there. Do the USP .45 have fully supported chambers? I think .45 super requires a heavier recoil spring, even with a fully supported chamber. ????????????

According to HK, 45 super is okay in the fullsize, but no okay for the compact due to the differing recoil spring arrangement.

The manual for my new S&W #37 says it is not rated for +P
