Real or Fake HK USP Tactical?

4294 20
Guy on armslist has a USP Tactical 45 for sale. I noticed that it does not have "Tactical" stamped on the slide. He states the earlier models did not have "Tactical" stamped on the slide. Is this possible, or could it just be a regular USP with threaded barrel? Every full size USP Tactical I have ever seen has had the "Tactical" stamping, and the compacts have "CT". Any info would help.

Ask him if the serial number on the threaded barrel matches the frame. To my knowledge, all 45 Tacticals were marked as such.

I mean, it may not be a true Tactical, but it's still an HK lol. I'm just not going to pay the price of a Tactical if it is not. Still has a factory HK threaded barrel and aftermarket night sights.
Add a Match Trigger and it's a complete USPT clone - LOL!
Seriously, if the price is right?
Why not?

I've got a USP Match 45 Clone that I like a lot :biggrin:

That's what I was thinking, but I don't see him coming off the price that much. People in my area see any and all guns as gold. I was going to try to work out a trade with him.

Why can't you buy one online? Or is it not an option for you?
Well, with buying one online vs in person, usually cash deals you can haggle some and you actually see it in person. No FFLS are needed either, and you can save on shipping. For the right price, I would buy one online. I'm a Ky CCDW holder, so no issues with background checks if that's what you were implying lol.. I buy the majority of my Guns at Buds Gun Shop, which is 3 miles from my house.

OP I have been watching used 45 tacs on GunBroker and I have seen several go for $850< bucks. Dont know if you ever buy used or not but they seem like pretty decent deals

Likely you will not find a good one under $850 without quite a wait and some luck. The .40 is available at that price point.
