Recently my son picked up a used HK USP from my LGS. While we both have been shooters for years, neither of us has had any experience with HK. This weapon came with the "HK USP Compact" manual. I didn't think it was a compact even if that's what was on the cover of the manual. Also the gun has no safety or decocker. After searching the net I decided it was a full size HK USP variant 7. Called HK and they advised that it is a full size pistol, otherwise it would say "Compact" on the gun. Further that it was the LEM (law enforcement modification, hence no safety/decock & double action all the way (we'd figured out the DA part. )HK also mentioned "7.5" which I guess is a variant of variant 7. ?? Forgot to ask him. All of the stampings on the pistol are correct. From the date code it appears ro have been made in 1998. He tried to look up the serial number but couldn't find it and said they only kept the SN's in their computer for a certain length of time; at least the USP's. After that they're purged and are on file with ATF. Hmmm? Sounds odd to me. Guy was helpful and is sending the proper manual. I'd say it's probably a LE trade in. Shows some holster wear but is tight overall and no major dings. Looking for comments from any of you folks who are knowledgeable in HKs. Here's what it looks like. I'd appreciate any comments, info, etc. Thanks.
