I've been reading up on the HK USP series, and I don't entirely understand all of the variants. What I'm mainly interested in is, whether or not any variant is capable of condition 1 (cocked and locked) carry? From my reading it looks like variant 9 may be able to do this?

Any USP experts out there that can set me straight?

You can definitely carry the Variant 1 cocked and locked, don't know about the others.

Variant 9 is C&L.

You can carry variant 1 C&L. This mode also retains the decocker. I believe v9 is C&L with no decock.

Either way, it is a great pistol.

You can carry Variants 1, 2, 9, and 10 cocked and locked.

See here for a full decription of each:

The Variant 1 has a control lever on the left side of the pistol (right handed usage). This control lever, when flipped up as in the manner of a 1911 is a safety and allows C&L. When pressed to its lower stop, below the "off-safe" position, decocks the pistol.

Variant 2 is a duplicate of Variant 1 execpt with the control lever on the right side of the pistol (left hand usage).

Variant 9 has a control lever on the left side of the pistol (right handed usage). This control lever retains only the safety. Up to safe, down to fire, no decocking capability.

Variant 10 is a duplicate of Variant 9 execpt with the control leve on the right side of the pistol (left hand usage).

Most pistols for sale are Variants 1, and I would recommend you go to a shop and play with one, as it is easier to understand with the pistol in your hand.
