...between USP's that say USP on the handle and those that say HK USP ?
My take? Nothing, cept the mold they were made in.

I much prefer the older stamping, e.g HK USP. If one compares the eject side, the stampings look much cleaner. The only USPs that defy this are the Expert models - all the ones I've seen up to AG have the early stampings.

Like everything German - 1st generation release represents the better in terms of attention to detail. Look at the slide engravings on the USP or the early vs. current P7s. Sure, in subsequent generations functional improvements are made, but so are the profit margins. Matters little if we're talking about, guns, cars, motorbikes, machine tools, etc.

Just my experience...

I know, I know, I know, Pick me, Pick me...

HK does it just to give us something to talk about. It's all a mind game. I have quite a (year) spread of models. A '93, '00, and '03 they all have HK USP on the grips. Two are 40 cal, and the 00 is a 45.
