    Default HK45 vs USP45

    Greetings fellow HK enthusiasts,

    What are the pros and cons vs. these two fine pistols.. I'm sure I will end up with both eventually but if you could have only one what would you pick? My current HK experience is limited to the P2000sk and P30 both in 9mm and light LEM.

    They're two outstanding, but different, pistols and playing the old pro and con game will not reveal any mind altering revelations about either one.
    Try them both and pick the one you like best.

    You're going to end up with both anyway, so why not just cut to the chase and get them both?

    If I could only have one, I wouldn't care which one.
    Just give me one of them and I'd be happy.

    Literally hundreds of threads on this exact question. You're right tho, you may at one point own both, a lot of members here have/do own both, some have sold one of them in favor of the other.

    Most common noted pros/cons.

    USP full size 45
    *Pros
    Higher Capacity
    Recoil Reduction System
    Some what better SA/DA trigger(Subjective)
    *Cons
    Thicker/larger grip that sometime is better suited for larger hands.

    HK45
    *Pros
    Slimmer ergo grip fits more hands better
    *Cons
    Lesser capacity
    Stock SA/DA trigger may not be quite as good (Again very subjective)

    Going Light LEM may even the playing field some what in the trigger category. Let us know what one you buy, and how its working for you!

    I flipped a coin and it came up heads for HK45 thanks for the input. I kind of assumed it was a coin flip situation but mainly was making sure there wasn't any glaring difference between the two. Still a couple months out just trying to figure out how to spend the Christmas gift from the parents this year. In the meantime I will prepare by getting some ammo ready and another tool-head and die set for the Dillon. I was staying away from the .45ACP due to cost but now that I have the Dillon I figure I should branch out a bit more. (excuse to buy more guns)

    I had a USP 45, & loved it. Flipped a coin, sold it, kicked in a few extra bucks & ended up with a MINT 45 ACP P9S. My USP was a BMW, but my P9S is a Rolls Royce. GARY

    I own a HK45C and a USP Tactical 45.
    For most of us choosing just one really isn't an option.

    IMHO the big difference between a FS HK45 and a FS USP 45 is ergonomics.
    And that's going to come down to personal preference.

    I have an HK45 Light LEM. It may be the finest 45 I own and I own many. Accurate , soft shooting and very ergonomic. I love this gun
