Here it is as promised. I picked it up for $650 with 4 mags each with 12 round capacity + the extension. Hope the pics work!

BBsteel,

I would say you got a good deal. It looks like that gun was hardly used from what I can tell from your pictures, the bluing is hardly worn on the barrel. I bought my USP full size used and I have been really happy with it and I would say mine was more used then yours.

Good Job!

The blueing is a little worn on the barrel but not too bad. The low resultion pics do a good job of hiding it. Really though, it shoots very smooth with little muzzle flip. I couldn't go wrong with nights sights and 4 magazines.

I got a new (used) USP 40 coming in today. Hopefully it should be delivered (to my FFL) just after lunch.

cool gun. all guns will show barrel wear, no big deal.
it's gonna be reliable good gun. ;)
Also, HK threads won't have lots of replies, nothing to talk about when your gun works great out of the box. :p

all you can do is shoot it and take more action pics.

Mines from Jan 95. I can tell because mine is a conventional barrel, they went to the polygonal barrel in Feb 95. If my barrel ever wears out I am going to upgrade to a polygonal one.

It has an AE date code on the barrel so I assume 2004 if I read that correctly.

A:0
B:1
C:2
D:3
E:4
etc.....

The 4 mags and night sights finalized my decision. Now I just need to get my shooting down. I'm a novice yet.

Be very careful with that HK and keep a good eye on it.... They tend to multiply if left to their own devices:D

If you can't shoot right with your USP, you can't shoot right with anything. Today was my second day at the range with my USP 40, nearly every shot was in the red zone. For me the USP puts the shoots right where I want them.

I have 3 Hi Caps, and 3 Clinton Mags (aka 10 rounders). I have Fiber Optic sights coming in.

PPGMD....I CAN'T shoot right with anything admittingly. This USP is smooth as heck for the .40 cal but I don't think the short barrel is great for me to start with.

Check out my post in the "General Discussions Forum". Maybe you can give me some insight based on the literature and picture of the target I posted.

Thanks!

Practice Practice Practice. I go to the range everyday and put 50 rounds on target through each of the two pistols I take with me. I save money by using WWB ammo from Wally's World, and taping up my target.

Take every step as a drill, pay attention where your shots are going and attempt to correct deficiencies in your techniques.

No matter how many others I buy, my USP40 seems to be the one I drift back to when I get bored with the others. I'm kinda on a M&P40 and M&P40c kick right now. But when I get bored with the M&P40, the USP will still be there. Unless I can afford a USP40c, the M&P40c is it for the compacts.

I've already sold off my XD40 (although I like their 45 so much it'll be staying).

By the way, for anybody in the same boat I am in - the M&P40 fits very nicely into a USP40 holster.:D

I really liked the P2000 9mm (full size) too. Very well could be my next purchase. I also have a 9mm M&P that I really like but do prefer the DA/SA triggers with a decocker.

Wow, I would say you did quite well on that price. HK mags are notoriously expensive.:barf:

BBsteel,

The P2000 is actually a compact size gun. I'm pretty sure the P30 is the fullsize, updated version of the P2000. The P2000K is the subcompact version.

how much would you say a 98 uspc .45 ss is worth? thats the only compact .45 at the store right now and they want 850 for it :what:

Edmond, thanks for the correction.

never summer, I'm not sure on your question...hopefully someone else has seen some for sale.

$850 might be a little bit high for a '98. This place: www.ordnanceoutsellers.com has USPc .45's with night sights for $759.

I would check with CDNN at cdnninvestments.com - they have it in the $650 range i believe.
