    Default HK USP elite series

    How to tell if USP elite is collectible or not? I've seen a USP elite 45 sell for 2775 and USP elite 9 sell for 2500 on GB recently, but also see some selling for around 1100. What gives? It seems like the more expensive ones come in a brief case style HK case and the cheaper ones come in modern plastic looking cases. The cases alone can't be worth that much right? What am I missing..

    The 9mm normally brings a premium. The case, and accessories do make a difference. The 9mm is not a mass imported US item. It makes it a rare and desired item.

    The 45 elite has been recently produced. And mass imported into the US. At the time that they were in stock you could purchase a new one for $900 or less. As they begin to dry up so the purchase price increased.

    Adding the black euro case increases the value.
    Adding a Merkle weight increases the value.

    Factory target, spent shell case, all accessories, all help the value. Condition also plays a role.

    Hopefully this helps some.
    I’m sure others will chime in with additional information.

    When I think of collectable I associate that with unfired and everything it came with as new.

    It seems like there are very few 9mms as they have not imported them as often. Like Doc mentioned there was a recent influx of 45s not too long ago.

    Doc pretty much answered your questions.

    Makes sense. Trying to figure out how much a HK USP 45 elite is worth. Just has the euro brief case and slightly used. No merkle weight.

    There is a price check section in the Premium section of the forum if you are trying to get a specific value.

    I would suggest posting pictures there and you will receive multiple inputs into the value of the item presented.
