I can only post photos of the USP, as the USP Compact Tactical has a paid hold on it until I sell something else.

The story on the USP is that a LGS 20 miles from me has the contract for ME State Police guns. The ME State Police traded in their USP 45 for HK45.

There were 89 traded in. This was a month or two ago.

So an employee at the LGS picked out the nicest of the 89 when they first came in, and put a hold on it.

Just when I happened to wander in, there were three rather beat up looking USP left, the most holster worn guns I have ever seen. The worst of the 89. And they were just putting a 4th one in the case, nearly pristine, just a little finish off the high points. And they were all the same price! The 4th one came off hold, as the employee who had cherry picked it from the 89 decided to buy a different gun. So now the best of the 89 was available.

Just then they were marking all of them down $100 further.

I took apart the pristine one, and it looked very clean . Very little black missing on the barrel.

They sold it to me for under $500, with 3 high cap mags and an unnumbered HK case.

They had used non police trade in used USPs with more holster wear then the one I bought marked $300 higher in another case.

Brought it to the range . Shot very good. I seem to shoot it better than the HK45 I owned a few years ago (and sold).

Must have belonged to a desk sargent or someone who left it in a desk draw quite a bit and did not unholster it much.

Maybe just shot to qualify? German made in 2002.


I have a suppressor coming in , so I was contemplating getting an HK USP threaded barrel. Those seem to be about $220 or so to $275.


Was poking around another LGS 7 miles from me this am, while waiting for a transfer of a rifle to clear 4473 federal check.

They had a two tone USP Compact Tactical for $975, and a two tone USP Compact for $650. Was thinking it would be better to just get the $650 one and add the threaded barrel and guide rod meant for threaded barrel/suppressor. But the tactical unit seemed more like nickel, and the $650 one seems to be stainless. Threaded Barrel was silver with o ring on tactical. The barrel was black on the non tactical. Threaded barrel numbered to gun on tactical, of course.

Did HK make nickel slides ? Date code was AG (2007) (or pretty close) on the tactical. The tag with the gun being displayed said extra mags, case, and accessories.
They got the case out, and it was the tactical zip case, complete with cleaning kit, 5 total mags, (3 elephant foot), manual , warranty card, and an extra HK USP 45 normal length barrel, unnumbered. I asked how long the gun had been there, 7 months. Asked for a discount, and they made it $925.

Had they had the room to display it with the case or even put all that was included on the tag, I am sure they would have sold it quicker

I will probably sell the unnumbered hk compact non treaded barrel. I never seem to use the shorter barrels when I have a longer one. I need all the help I can get trying to get the holes close on the paper.

Pics shortly on the USP police trade in.

The police usp. I don't think a police gun can be much better unless it were unissued.

In the case was the owners manual and correctly serial numbered envelope with the spent .45 shell The case has the serial number scratched out, but it is probably the original case. Otherwise how would the spent cartridge shell for that gun have been stored?

There is no two-tone or nickel or stainless USP Compact Tactical. It only comes in BLACK. If you see one in 2-tone, it's been refinished and not worth a damn, unless it's under $500.

ETA: There is no other RSA for the CT or if you want to make a CT clone by adding a TB to a compact. It uses the same RSA as the standard one.

Thanks for the info. Interesting to know that stainless or nickel usp compact tacticals were not produced.

Actually, this gun is under $500, if you look at the extras. The retail price of the non threaded barrel $225, the 3 extra mags at $180, and the tactical case at $90. $925 sales price less those items is $430. Granted they are used and not new, but I am happy with the price.

I actually traded that gun in a Kittery Trading Post. The finish is Metalloy hard chrome. I had it done in November 2015. Never had any issues just traded it for a NIB P30 LEM. If you have any questions about the pistol PM me.
