The USP was originally designed for .40S&W (although 9mm and .45 USPs each have their place in the world). The USP Compact came after the fact, and was introduced in more than one caliber.

Originally designed around 45 acp, changes were made and they were introduced in 40, 9 and 45 in that order a year apart. The USP prototype was apart of the OHWS.

just a warning OP. don't try to use +p+. the muzzle flip is a bitch. I've owned my USP compact .40 since about 2002. my dad was a cop for 29 years, I let him fire it and the first thing he said after he finished the mag was damn, that's got a hell of a muzzle flip. I was relieved because I thought it was me.

In this case, though, the USP is a very good gun. I have owned all kinds of modern handguns, Smith and Wessons, Sigs, Walthers, FNs, Rugers, Berettas, Colts, HKs and others, and sold a large number of them. The only two I still use are Glocks and HK USPs. The P30 deserves honorable mention, and if they ever figure out a finger extension mag floorplate, I will buy one again, but as it stands, there's something special about the USP. It does everything right and nothing wrong.

The USP has one of the last good HK triggers. Double action is about as good as a 10 pound trigger is going to get, but single action is crisp with about a 1/8" reset.

Just a word of warning, keep orange peel oil away from the laser etched numbers. My carry gun is a USP compact in 40, and it has been for 8 years, and the first week I got the thing I got a little orange peel oil on the serial number on the left side, I didn't notice right away and now there is a slight discoloration around the number. Its not noticeable in most lighting conditions, but I know its there, and it has always pissed me off.
My recommendation is to buy your mags from Midway, they are cheaper than hkparts, but if you want a .357 sig barrel (which you should eventually) get it from hkparts. Same for any other parts, the only thing that is cheaper from midway is the mags. My compact has an LEM trigger, which I absolutely love, but some people hate, my full-size has a match trigger (well worth the money if you are going to keep your safety). Don't waste your money on the extended mag release, unless you have tiny hands. I carry my usp compact almost every day, and I shoot it better than my glock 32.
>>
I'm just saying, I bought a .40 because I wanted to get into major power factor for USPSA. It goes bang. Has manageable recoil. Good capacity.

Daddy likes.

You can argue "the worst of both worlds" and the "the best of both worlds" all day long and at the end of the day protip it doesn't really matter because .40 kills people fine and is easy to fine

I don't particularly like it, but a Glock 22 is probably my next purchase

Spoken like someone who doesn't own a .40 caliber handgun yet. If 9mm and .45 ACP are to be considered good calibers, then .40S&W should be considered a very good caliber. It's not the best for everyone, but it does a good job killing people through barriers.

The USP has a superior trigger to both the P30 and P2000 and it doesn't have any finger grooves in the grip. The USP has recoil reduction systems that the other pistols don't have except in SK versions. The compact version is slimmer than the full size USP and all P30's, and it's actually a good size for carry, about the same as a Glock 19.

.40 is the covered blowjob of the handgun world.
>>
>>28598750
It offers almost no advantage and many disadvantages to 9 and 45 while stealing marketplace space that rightfully belongs to them
>>
The only reason to buy a .40 is to buy a glock 22 and put a 9mm conversion barrel in it. That way you can shot cheaper 9mm ammo now and if there is a end of civilization as we know it kind of situation you can use the .40 ammo left over at police stations.

I go for high end 45s. I can't see myself paying over $500 for a fucking 40 handgun. If I got one I'd just get a Glock because it wouldn't be something I would show off.

USP and USP Compact are very different guns. It isn't a chopped version like a Glock 17/19.

The USP Compact has more in common with a P2000 than USP (size, same mags).

USP compact is much more of a 9mm/40 gun.

It's only real advantage is its ability to go through windshields better.

For that you get more recoil, more cost per round and less capacity.
Get a 10mm or switch to a 9mm

It does have the P2000/P30 polymer buffer instead of buffer spring, but on the other hand, it has the USP shorter resetting trigger, and it lacks finger grooves in the grip.
>>
>>28606342
>It's only real advantage is its ability to go through windshields better.
The same characteristics allow it to do a better job killing people behind any kind of barrier that they might be hiding behind, such as a car door, wall, or anything else. It also makes .40S&W a barely acceptable innawoods caliber, and 9mm too weak for the woods.
>>
>>28606925
So why not just use 10mm?
>>
>>28606935
10mm handguns are bigger/thicker and a lot less shootable. Actually, I do carry a Glock 20 when I hike in bear country. I just mentioned that because some people might live in Alaska or Montana and want their EDC to double as a bear gun for the rare times when a bear might wander into their backyard.

Despite what James Yeager tells you, every caliber and every handgun is a set of compromises, even the Glock 19. To some people, the slight increase in muzzle flip of .40 over 9mm is acceptable, considering the further increase in muzzle flip of 10mm. I would ideally like to carry a .32 caliber pistol, since it packs a punch while having even less muzzle flip, but unfortunately, it's not that powerful of a round and there are almost no modern polymer handguns chambered for it. Hence, the compromise of 9mm.

But the Mk. 23 is even heavier, surely that thing can handle 10mm pressure?
>>
>>28607700
Since USP's are made to handle +P loadings, and .45 Super has similar ballistics (not sure about the pressures) to 10mm, I would say yes, most likely.
>>
>>28597923
Im thinking about buying a USP40c and maybe getting a .357 sig barrel for it. How does it handle recoil?

>>28598430 here. The .40 Compact has more muzzle flip than a Glock 19 and considerably less muzzle flip than a Glock 20 - as two points of comparison that I'm very familiar with. It's very shootable. HK designs their guns specifically to mitigate recoil so as to increase their service life. The compact has a different system for this than the full size (polymer buffer as opposed to a short, heavier, secondary recoil spring), and I think it's not quite as effective, but it does mitigate some recoil as opposed to not having it.
>>
>>28601005
you are incorrect

Only Tacticals have match triggers, not full-size USPs
