    Default New to the forum Hello!

    Hi,

    Thanks for letting me join this group. I’ve been wanting an HK pistol for awhile and I am trying to decide between a USP 45 and an HK 45. I’ll have to search the forums for any comparison tests.

    Again thanks and I’m excited to learn more and gain knowledge and contribute when I can. Thank you.

    Hi, and Welcome to the forum.
    I have good news and bad news.

    Either of those will be great to start with, but once you have one, you can’t just stop. So go ahead and start making out your list. It is a Great addiction, and this forum and it members are a wealth of knowledge.

    My personal preference is the USP family.
    Good luck in your purchase choice.

    Doc44ga ^^^^^^^^^ speaks truth - like a man who should know what he's talking about.

    Have you considered the USP45CT? Kind of the 'best of all worlds' in 45

    I love the USP, and I will admit to being addicted to the 40 round

    I used to shoot 45ACP exclusively - then one day, changed over to 40 -and have not looked back since

    Welcome! I suggest you visit a gunshop and grip and dry-fire both guns. And if you can, test fire both at the range. You'll see that the USP45 and HK45 are different. If you lean towards the USP45, take it a step further and look at the USP45 Expert and USP45 Tactical. These USPs have the DA/SA match trigger which is much smoother than the DA/SA trigger on the factory USP45. Whatever you decide, let us know what you did. Good luck!

    This is good advice. I used to have Glocks until a friend of a friend showed up at the range with a USP45T. Once I shot that match trigger I had to have it!

    I saw a sale on HK USP 40 calibers LEO trade-ins today. I couldn't pass it up so I pulled the trigger. Getting it transferred to my FFL. I read that the USP line was built around the .40. Anything I should be aware of on these LEO trade ins?

    I’ve owned several USP’s over the years, but I find the grip of the HK45 to be much more comfortable. They’re very different in that regard. I suppose one thing to consider is most USP’s are German made but most of the HK45’s in the USA are made here.

    A trade in is like almost any other used pistol. Make sure to clean it and look over it for any cracks, weak springs, burs anything that does not look right or normal. If you don’t feel confident after watching the process a few times on YouTube, then carry it to a Qualified HK gunsmith and ask him to check it.
    As many have said on here, “HK’s are built like tanks.” If it has had basic care it will outlast you and me both.
