So to celebrate the AWB expiration, I decided to go out and buy a new gun.

I brought home a HK USPC in .40. My first HK.

Have not shot it yet, and not sure what to expect as I am more used to SIGs, Glocks, and Berettas.

My only question so far is that the extractor seems to be more redish than the rest of the slide. I don't think its rust as I applied some Hoppes #9 which had no effect. Any ideas?

Anyways, pics below:

Very high quality carbon steel can take on a purpleish/reddish hue to it over time. I have a couple of SIG's with red hammers (They are my red headed stepchildren and I love them so. :D )

Congratulations on the very nice pistola.

Congratulations! :D

Did it come with normal capacity, 12 round mags or the neutered 10 rounders?

The top of the extractor should have some red paint on it. It's the "loaded chamber indicator"

Would this size pistol be a good CC gun? I held a USP 45 and it looked hard to conceal. Your HK looks a lot smaller. Can it be carried cocked and Locked? Does it have an auto decocker?

Nice score man!

I'm also planning to buy a new gun to celebrate AWB being dropped.

My favorite gun store has a sale of 5%-50% on ALL products including guns next week, so I'm going to take a look and see if there is a gun that strikes my fancy.

Nice!

I went looking for a USP9 on Tuesday (couldn't get out on Monday), but all I found was a TA31.

I too recently picked one up.


Yes, it would be a great CCW gun. It is basically almost exactly the same dimensions as my Glock 30.

The only thing that sucks with these German guns are that magazines are kinda spendy.

nice purchase! looks like mine did 5 years ago, all new and shiny. now its a little worse for wear looks wise but still functions perfectly after 8,000+ rounds.

the extractor is painted red underneath, then black over the top of it. its not the same HE finish as the rest of the gun, its just paint, and will wear off from your holster exposing more of the red paint, but it too wears off leaving bare metal exposed. i'll try to get a pic of mine for you and post it later today. i think you'll be very pleased with your purchase. www.fourfourmagstore.com has 12 round mags for it for $40/ea. i'm sure there are others too.

excellent way to celebrate the end of the AWB!

I might be able to get some for you at $28 each. I just got some for my USP .40 full size. Drop me an e-mail if interested.
