  • HK usp-c

    So I picked up a usp compact last night. It's a little bit fatter than my glock but after shooting one multiple times at the range I'm beginning to like it.

    Does anyone have any good resources for these pistols? Websites, etc? Also if you own/shoot/carry one what do you think of it?

    What caliber and variant? I carry a USPc (variant 1) in .357sig on and off-duty and I love it, as long as I have a choice I'll never switch to anything elkse. It's rugged, fits my hand well, is relatively light, very accurate, and 100% reliable from the first round I put through it.

    The best online resource I know of for HK stuff is www.hkpro.com.

        It's a .40, variant 1. It's new but it's an older model, the letter say it was made in 97. I bought it because it was 2-tone and caught my eye. I'm pretty excited to go and break it in.

            I'll work on it, I don't own a digitial cam, a few friends do though.

            I hadn't realized that the older models don't have the HK lockout feature on them. PLUS, this one has an all metal hammer, no rubber tip on the end of it like the others I've handled.

            Oh, does anyone know a good resource for HK mags? Night sights?

              I own a USPc 9mm, that I use for HD, very nice gun. Beside HKPRO you could try http://www.hk-usa.com/wforum/index.php
              That's a forum of hk-usa itself, with a direct line to their customer service.

                    USP Compact .40

                    I carried a USP Compact in .40 S&W for six or seven years, until about three months ago when our department authorized 1911 type pistols. The pistol was a variant #1, but I bought a conversion kit and our rangemaster changed it over to the LEM (Law Enforcement Mode) with the light (pre-cocked DAO). Except for the very long take-up on the trigger, it shot very well. I changed the sights to Novak's tritium version and those worked well, but now I think I'd prefer Tru-Glow's (http://www.truglosights.com/) fiber optic/tritium combination. Check them out! The fiber optics are exceptionally bright during the day and as easy to pick up as the tritium is at night.

                      Could someone explain the attraction of these guns? I got a USP 9 in my shop, used, and took it out and shot it. It was OK but thats all it was. It didnt feel especially accurate. The single action was crisp but the double was typical spongy. It wasnt a bad gun by any means but I am mystified why someone would plop down $800 or more for a polymer gun like that.

                        Well, #1 in my academy class with my old USP 45 that has over 100k rounds through it. I guess that's my attraction.

                          In the back of my mind I had wanted one for awhile. WSP issues the USP, or USP-c to their troopers, the DOC also qualifies with the USP. I have applied to both and because I had already wanted one, had some extra money, and another firearm to trade in for it, I decided to go for it.

                            is that a magazine from a full sized usp? all the mags for the usp compact ive seen have the grip extension.

                              Full size mags won't fit the C models. You can get either base pad for the C and F models. I actually traded my flat pads for hooked ones on my F but found they are made out of a weaker plastic.
