In a World of Compromise, Some Don't.
Back in 1989, Heckler & Koch formed a new design team to begin work on a new polymer pistol. Glock had seemingly come out of nowhere a few years earlier, and HK could see the writing on the wall.

While a technical marvel, it was becoming apparent the HK P7 series pistol was quickly coming to an end. Since the company had pioneered the polymer frame pistol with the introduction of the VP70Z in 1970, it was time once again for HK to re-explore and updated version of the classic design.

The new pistol was going to be heavily marketed to consumers in the U.S., so engineers relied heavily on this knowledge when research and development began on the handgun. In addition, HK also set about designing the handgun around the upcoming SOCOM (U.S. Special Operation Command) contract.

Therefore, it was decided early on that the pistol had to be equally capable of being the market leader for civilian, law enforcement and the military communities around the world. As a result, an ultra reliable, tack driving accurate, modular and user friendly prototype emerged.

Designated the "Universal Self-Loading Pistol" (or USP) is outfitted with an outstanding 5.09’’ cold hammer forged polygonal barrel, which increases accuracy, muzzle velocity and barrel life. The barrel has been threaded to accept suppressors. Machined from solid billet steel, the USP slide and metal parts wear HKs proprietary “Hostile Environment” finish.

This is essentially a black oxide coating that is highly corrosion and wear resistant against just about everything. Another important feature is the patented recoil system that make this gun extremely soft shooting.

The frame and grip on HK USP Tactical's fiber re-enforced polymer make it one of the toughest handguns in history. From the checkering on the front strap-- to its ergonomic grip geometry-- the unique frame was specifically designed to fit a shooters hand.

Since the pistol is hammer driven, HK has equipped it with a traditional double action mode that the company refers to as "Variant 1". Although criticized by some for its heavy double action trigger pull compared to striker driven designs, the pistol is nevertheless incredibly safe without the possibility of an "accidental" discharge. In other words, a shooter has to intentionally squeeze the trigger like they mean it to fire the handgun.

After the initial first shot, the gun resets to a relatively smooth single action mode and stays that way until empty. For convenience and to maintain a slim a profile, the control lever is conveniently located to the side of the frame. The paddle is extended for convenient operation and has three modes: up is safe, down is decock, where the middle position is fire.

The HK USP Tactical will easily and reliably feed all known hollow point ammunition. An integral rail is proprietary and requires an adapter to allows the shooter to easily attach tactical accessories such as a light and/or laser. The extended slide release operates effortlessly.

An advanced polymer frame is stronger than steel of the same dimensions, where the gun is lightweight for a full frame pistol-- weighing in at only 32.8 ounces unloaded. Its surface texture provides positive traction and greatly improve overall performance and control when firing.

The 3- dot fixed sights are high profile adjustable, get on target extremely well and at 8mm in height, is capable of sighting over the top of most suppressors. Rear cocking serrations allows for easy slide manipulation and racking a round in the chamber.

The magazines are very well made and sport a black finished steel body. A pair of 12- rounders are included with the package. Unlike many double stack magazines on the market, they are fairly easy to load.

HK was the first to develop a magazine release that is part of the trigger guard and t
he USP Tacticals paddle style release allows the magazine to easily drop free. The pistol also has a flair in the magazine well that greatly enhances the reloading process.

For service or repair, the gun is backed by a manufacturers lifetime warranty. Overall, the HK USP Tactical is a engineering masterpiece that is extremely durable, accurate and versatile self-defense handgun capable of providing its owner several lifetimes of reliable service.
