This is a great, affordable, light, accurate, and reliable handgun. It has been my BUG for 9 years and I wouldn't have it any other way.

Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but, "affordable"? Surely you concede that a new USP costs more than any other polymer-framed service pistol on the market (and often more than some steel-framed pistols)? -MT2008 14:00, 3 December 2009 (UTC)

Well yes the USP is expensive but the old fart has gotta point, it's a pretty awesome gun.

Without a doubt my favorite tactical handgun

My favorite is the Expert model

I would buy a USP45 in a second if they did something about the trigger-S&Wshooter

--You CAN take it to a gunsmith and have the trigger cleaned up. You might try the Expert model or the Mark 23 if you want a better trigger. Heck, if you're going to go spend $1,500 to $2,000 on a gun, might as well get something you like. I honestly would rather spend that kind of money on a Les Baer or something, but the USP is good too.

I have a question, is the USP Match just a regular USP with the compensator? Are there any othere differences? Is the compensator removable?

It has target sights, an adjustable trigger, and the barrel is extended. The compensator can be removed, but doing so leaves you with a rather awkward looking barrel. It also has the same rubber o-ring around the barrel that the Mk. 23 has.--PistolJunkie 18:24, 9 December 2009 (UTC)

I love the gun except it's got one squeeky ass trigger.

-The best two USP models are the Expert and the Mark 23. That's coming directly from my friends who have shot both in IDPA for years. The Expert and Mark 23 both have better, more cleaned up triggers compared to the base USP models. All of them are exceptionally accurate and reliable. The only compromise you have to make is in the wallet. They aren't cheap.

It has everything. Accurate, lightweight, high ammo capacity, virtually indestructible. But it's big (big grip - don't believe me - hold a Mark 23). And they are expensive.

Funny how its a $1,000 dollar gun yet has a horrible DA trigger pull. I would expect it from a Glock at $500 but a USP? Really?--FIVETWOSEVEN 03:13, 6 January 2011 (UTC)

The pictures are starting to annoy me. Movie prop master cleans up images and then some one reloads his image without doing anything to it or doing very little on this page and so many others why ? edit credit it needs to be a rule not to upload over some one's image unless your changing it for the better or uploading a better image .

LAPD service weapons

Is it legal for LAPD to use USPs in real life or was it just made up for 24?

It's not an official issue weapon, at least according to Wikipedia. Only the Beretta 92, various S&W Automatics and Glocks. The Wierd It 20:17, 24 September 2010 (UTC)

Wikipedia is not a reliable source for information, because it is a Wiki like IMFDB. --L.J. Gibbs 19:11, 5 November 2010 (UTC)

I know for fact the LAPD does use the Beretta (I would think it's kinda common-knowledge, at least to us gun guys), and I have seen LAPD officers with a couple of different S&W autos. I also agree that the USP is not any official service weapon (or at least, I seriously doubt it is). StanTheMan 00:48, 6 November 2010 (UTC)

LAPD also uses the Kimber TLE II 1911. (They call it the LAPD SWAT Custom). But detectives use this gun as well as LAPD SWAT teams.

I've never seen any LAPD officers with Glocks. Just about all of them have the Beretta 92FS because that's their standard issue sidearm. And the occasional old-timers with the 6-shooter .38 Specials.

I don't know of a single police department in the United States that uses H&K handguns. More or less because of the price. They do use H&K MP5s on SWAT teams. Although I see that phased out more and more in favor of the M4A1.

The NJ State Police used HK P7's back in the 80's. I remember a state trooper came to my school to do a presentation, and he mentioned that unlike other pistols, you had to squeeze it to cock it. I don't remember if it was the P7M8 or P7M13, but according to HKpro, it was the P7M8. --Funkychinaman 21:39, 14 July 2011 (CDT)

Apparently H&K USP compacts and H&K P2000s are currently used by US Border Patrols.

LAPD is transitioning to Glock, Upland uses USP i believe, and USP is on the LASD approved carry list. Mercer 04:07, 14 November 2010 (UTC)

There are a few that issue them.--FIVETWOSEVEN 03:16, 6 January 2011 (UTC)

The Maine State Police use the USP .45.

My local PD just switched over from the USP and USP Compact in .40 S&W to the Glock 22 & 23 in .40 S&W. --L.J. Gibbs (talk) 12:12, 2 December 2012 (EST)


Does the USP have a stamped or milled slide? I've heard it both ways. -Anonymous

-It's CNC milled.

--Littlesoldier1 02:24, 17 December 2011 (CST)

Who uses HK USP?

I was reading the "Smokin' Aces" page,and there was a note,that FBI doesn't use USP.That is interesting to me.Why? And,does somebody knows,who uses USP now?

For one, the German Military. Beyond that? The Wierd It 14:22, 17 December 2011 (CST)

Maine State Police use USP45s. Lurker McNasty 22:00, 17 December 2011 (CST)



The new version of the USP Tactical is now called the USP SD, and it doesn't have any special words on the slide. Otherwise it's the same; threaded barrel, target sights, and an extended magwell. 9mm only, I don't know if the Tactical was too. Alex T Snow 13:32, 30 January 2012 (CST)

IIRC the Tactical was originally .45 only, then 9mm came later.-Ranger01 23:33, 30 January 2012 (CST)

What is that thing on the barrel of the USP Match?

It is some kind of compensator? - User: 2wingo

Its simply a weight, attached via the pic rails. The match has a longer barrel, 6" if i recall, and the weight conceals the barrel and adds some mass on the front end to lessen the muzzle jump. The weight is also open on the top side, so the barrel can move freely and cycle properly. The Kaptain (talk) 23:30, 1 December 2012 (EST)
