So H&K Guys, what you think???


April 3, 2007, 05:02 PM
First post here bye the way!:)

I have a line on a USED H&K USP Compact .40 cal variant 1 that comes with night sights and 4 magazines (2 12's and 2 10's). The gun is in great condition with minimal wear and comes with a box. The date code is AE (2004). The shop is asking $650 for it used. I'm torn between this and a P99 AS .40 cal.

I can't wait to get home and check my blue book!!

CDNN is selling the Custom Combat USPc40 with Novak night sights for $640 new. Just another option.

The one you're talking about sounds like an okay deal though.

good deal, mine has dot sights 2 13rnd leo mags box papers got it for 570. AE datecode as well.

for 80 bucks extra you get night sites and 2 extra mags, id do it.

If it fits you better than the P99, go for it.

If not, don't. :)

The CDNN offering might not still be there - they sell out quickly once their catalog goes out.

The gun you describe sounds like a pretty good deal to me. Either way, you'll be happy. You know that once you've had an HK, you'll be hard to please with anything else. :rolleyes:

BTW, check as well.

That's not a bad price for an outstanding firearm. Especially, given the extra mags your getting with it.

Jump on it.

Sounds like a great deal in my opinion. How many rounds through the gun?

April 4, 2007, 09:43 AM
I think that's a pretty good price. I just got a USPc .45 NIB w/ night sights for $760. And that was by far the best price I'd seen on that gun.

I'd go for it. Its not a great deal, but a good one none the less.

April 4, 2007, 10:43 AM
Good enough deal that I'd say take it if you're wanting a USP 40. It's a bit more than the going gun-show rate I usually see, but that's without the extra mags and night sights, which I think make it a pretty good price.

April 4, 2007, 11:33 AM
welcome to THR, yeah i agree take it!

April 4, 2007, 12:06 PM
You won't be sorry with the H&K, i just bought a USP full size in .40 S&W and love the gun. Now I am thinking about a USP Compact too. They are accurate, easy to take care of, and from what I hear very reliable.

April 4, 2007, 12:47 PM
It's a fair price. If you want the pistol, get it and don't look back. I know I love mine.

It's a good price. Great gun. Go for it.

Thanks guys! I can get one brand new for $720 so I'm debating just doing that. Not sure what kind of night sights or who installed them. I called the gun shop and they said they only gaurantee the gun functions and not accuracy. No return policies there so I may hold out and spend the extra $70 for a new one. I'd hate to get it and find out some guy put the sights on himself and then have to get that fixed. I don't really care about the extra 10 capicity mags since ebay has them all the time.

Hmmmmmm. I'll let you know what I do!

Its not a bad deal with the magazines, thats about 200 bucks in magazines. So I would say subtract that roughly about from the gun and you have the semi average value of the weapon. I based this on the assumption that the used HK mags would still go for a premium of about 45 bucks average new factory mags is 55 for 12 or 10 rounds are usually the same exact price. I would say go for the HK I love mine.

April 4, 2007, 10:32 PM
FYI, Seen the 10 round mags on ebay with the finger extension for 12.95 + 7.00 for shipping.

Well guys thanks a lot...geeeeeezzzzzzz.

I went in today to give a look see again. So happened to be the guy that traded the USP in in the store. He told me the night sights he had done by H&K and the gun was accurate as hell. It came with 4, 12 round mags so I heard the reasoning SoCalShooter gave me with cost of mags.

Yep, I bought it and will give it a ride next week. Let you know how it spews the lead then.............

so where are the pics?

You know that once you've had an HK, you'll be hard to please with anything else

yeah, what he said above.

April 6, 2007, 09:21 PM
COngrats! It should serve you well! I do look forward to seeing some pics ;)
