    Let me specify--- I have never seen a "factory" AH (07) stainless USP9FS (unless photoshopped)--- only 96-01 and 09!!!

    Atz1 may see this as a good sign.

    He's looking for a FS USP 9 SS.

    This just goes to show if he is patient and keeps looking, shaking the trees as he goes, he will find one.

    Nice find!

    Anyone remember the Fox TV series Fastlane? 2002-03, only one season. Lots of cars, women, and guns.

    Tiffani Thiessen's character had a stainless USP compact, probably 9mm. Both were sexy.

    Absolutely gorgeous!
    Maybe someday I will actually see one in person so I can try to buy it

    I think you made the right call @anavrin0901 - you wouldn't have been happy shortly after the buy because of the fact you want it in 9mm. I've had to settle on converting my tan and grey USP Compacts to 9mm with FireDragon conversion barrels. I wouldn't do it with a .40. I've managed to find 3 SS USP9 Compacts over the past 5 years. They are out there and they do go for sale, you just have to stay on it. I don't know if there will be another release like in the 2015 re-release, but I sure hope so. A re-release of the full size USPs in SS would be nice too. Anyway, hunt for what you want and don't settle on a 40 if that's not what you are really after.

    Thanks I appreciate it! They seem to come in 6 year increments so here’s to a SS 9 USPc in 2021! I noticed one being used today in the newly released Netflix movie THE OLD GUARD

    Revisiting this thread because @AGG raises a good perspective in post #21....If he’s never seen an AH stainless USP9FS (only 96-01 and 09)....it begs the question, does anyone here other than the OP own an AH stainless or have firsthand experience seeing one? Does the OP have the only AH stainless ever, or is this not a factory stainless and refinished? Intrigued by this. #UnsolvedMysteries

    I'm sure there's more out there, but I'm in Canada so it may have something to do with it. It's defiantly an original stainless, the underside of the slide is clean with no brush marks, wouldn't make sense to do all that hand work underneath if it wasn't legit.

    Makes sense now--- it appeared factory--- just never seen an AH in the U.S.!!!
    Also explains the gray plastic case.
