Depends on a bunch of stuff: roundcount, condition, sights (are they tritium night-sights or regular white-dots), age of night-sights (they only last ten years), number of mags, capacity of mags, stainless or black, does it have the original case, fired casing, manual, HK padlock.

But generally speaking, between $450 and $700.

Give us ALL the details and we can narrow down the price range for you. Sharp pictures wouldn't hurt either!

thanks for the reply, but the other party and i decided we cant agree. i was going to trade my 1911 for his usp and he was asking for $200 plus my pistol that included 4 mags, 3 sets of grips 3 holsters and factory night sights. his included 2 mags and the case and 1 holster... i then pointed out the msrp difference in my favor which he did not like.. oh well, i still love my 1911 and still get to shoot it. probably wait til i get my taxes back and go get a tactical 45.

Which 1911 model were you planning on trading ? Value for a clean early USP $650-700. Alot of decent 1911's will run $850 & up nowadays. Now if you are trading for a WC, NH or Baer hell no...

Good for you. . . The fullsize USP Tactical 45 is actually my favorite HK pistol (I've got two). It is very much the same as the standard fullsize USP 45 (I've got one of those in stainless), only they kicked it up a notch!

I met a guy who wanted to sell me his well-used older USP Compact 40. I wanted the gun, but he was really stuck on ridiculous numbers. It had most of the finish sanded off the slide down to bare white metal, didn't have the case, the manual, or anything else that came with it, and only had one low-capacity (10-round) mag that was chewed-up even worse than the gun, and looked like it was falling apart. The gun was a mess. He was absolutely firm at about $90 off of the price of a brand-new one with two hi-cap mags. . . and even at that price, he was acting like I would have been stealing from him. I think it was because his entire scope of knowledge about the value was based on absurdly high-priced local gun stores that were asking even more than full list price for them, plus tax. Even when I showed him that I could buy it elsewhere at reasonable prices, and that I was going to have to get the slide refinished, he hardly budged, and openly accused me of trying to take advantage of him. . .

If a deal works for both the buyer and the seller, that's great. But ya gotta know when to just walk away gracefully.

its a springfield lightweight champion (px9149lp) that is in awesome shape. when he first contacted me, he sent a pic of a usp 45 with tactical sights, so thats what i thought he was offering.. turns out thats not the case. when i asked to see a detail pic of the sights he sent one of standard white sights
