    Default Is this USP a Factory Creation?

    I am wondering if anyone can tell me if the attached picture of a USP45 is a legitimate factory color? It is a pretty bad picture and it is the only picture. Does it look like a FDE? To me it seems way to gold to be real? Can anyone school me up on frames of color on a USP? Thanks in advance.

    I think I've seen that gun before for sale. It is not factory in my opinion. Looks like a bronze cerakote to me...NOT factory taupe

    Stay away based on what? That it’s been cerakoted?

    Here it is. I knew I had seen is somewhere. Even though its a cerakote...$450 for a usp45 is an excellent price! Offer $400 and youve got yourself a steal!

    Looks/reads like a scam ad to me.

    ETA didn't get past the spelling and grammar to finish reading the ad. I guess a face to face legitimizes it to a certain extent.

    Wonder how much of that Russian steel ammo has gone through it?

    That was my next question after you guys confirmed my fear. At $400 would it be worth it?

    Thanks to all those that replied. BTW it’s got no factory box or anything. Just a magazine and an after market case.
