    What's not to like for three bills? Great deal you got regardless of the finish. That can always be fixed.

    You could add black grip panels or a sleeve to cover most of that up. Add in your UTL and it might just end up looking decent.

    Regarding the "hated .40". PMC 40D ammo is the best kept secret around. 165gr bullet at 989 fps. It just .... thuds. No bite, no bark, no Holly Hannah that's hot (Lawman 53955) just a pleasant thud. I think a lot of shooter's would rethink their feelings towards the 40 after trying that ammo.

    Anyways, you got a great deal so have some fun with it!

    I've heard of a lot people using this stuff to strip paint off of their firearms, might wanna give it a try. By the way, a USP in .40 is the only way.......my favorite caliber. 9mm is just Meh shooting even though I own a few in 9mm. I will add, I started out shooting a 357 mag so there's that.

    That's a steal if it's just a bad paint job, if the firearm is mechanically sound, WOW.

    That's well worth a try with a nylon tooth brush.

    I have to stay off of gunbroker for a while...

    I bought two USP 40 tactical for 500... One was used well and the other was used for a test fire...

    I know you can never have enough but I dont even get to shoot what I have now.

    I'm hoping the inside looks better than the outside.

    I bought one like this awhile back, I used acetone and a brass bristle brush to remove the paint without damaging the finish underneath.

    Nice purchase. If stripping the paint doesn't come out well, paint it again and shoot it until it comes apart. That should take quite a while!
