I got my 3rd USP new in Box from Buds today, a full size 9mm and noticed the same thing as the last 2 I bought at different places...it's 2 years old. Was test fired in january of 2010. This matters in no way as the gun is brand new...just curious why on 3 occasions I've purchased new USPs from high volume dealers that are 2+ years old. Maybe they make big batches in Germany and slowly import them?? As I said this matters in no way, just curious. Thoughts??

I have been told by a couple different vendors/FFLs that Full Frame HKs do not 'move' as fast as the Compact models...and some larger volume importers have taken to buying large numbers and 'sitting on them' to maintain or sometimes increase values and in some cases manufacture false demand by making certain models 'rarer' than others....

Do not know how accurate or reliable the information is but it does seem plausible to me!

Congrats on the new acquisitions and enjoy!

My USPc in .40 was NIB and it was a BA last July....Dad suggested that maybe they just don't move as fast and a NIB changes hands a couple times between dealers before its finally found its way into our HK addicted paws...Gun dealers are just like car dealers *shudder* they don't like to sit on 'old' or 'expensive' inventory...
