"In a World of Compromise, Some Men Don't".
In 1989, HK formed a new design team to begin work on a new polymer pistol. Glock had come seemingly out of nowhere two years earlier, and HK could see the end of the P7 pistol line, so they decided they should explore the use of polymers for their next handgun. The new pistol was going to be marketed heavily to consumers in the United States, so HK conducted extensive market research here in the United States, information that would be relied upon heavily as they engineered the new pistol. HK set about designing their new handgun in preparation for the coming U.S. Special Operation Command (SOCOM) pistol contract. HK decided early on that their new offering had to be equally capable for the American commercial market, law enforcement and military communities around the world. As a result, ultra reliability, modularity and a user friendly configuration became part of the design focus.

The name HK gave to their new pistol was the Universal Self-loading Pistol, or USP. The USP incorporated a new polymer frame with a buffered Browning locking system. In order to make these two simple and robust components work together effectively, HK had to spend serious time and money to get the slide design right. If you analyze the USP slide, you’ll notice how much more robust this system is when compared to the slides of other polymer frame pistols. However, this larger slide design is perhaps the single biggest reason the USP is considered one of the most dependable and durable automatic pistols in the world today.

HK has simplified the buffering component of their modified Browning design and uses a flat wire spring and a polymer buffering sleeve. The flat wire spring can cycle more times before it takes “a set,” giving the new design a less intensive maintenance schedule, and the polymer sleeve absorbs the impact that the buffer spring once managed. The trigger break on the USP is excellent. The double action pull is close to 12 pounds, while the single action pull breaks closer to 5 pounds. The trigger guard is over-sized a bit, so shooters with gloves can still easily fire the gun. The ambidextrous magazine release lever extends below the trigger guard. It is not a button, but an actual lever, but very easy to use.

The .45 Tactical model is an enhanced version of the USP that was designed for users who need the features found on the HK Mark 23, but in a more compact pistol. This pistol approach the precision found on the Mark 23 by adding an extended threaded barrel with a rubber O-ring, adjustable trigger, and adjustable target-type sights. The .45 ACP model of the USP Tactical is constructed on the USP45 frame. It comes with two 12-round magazines. The generously sized ejection port and a large claw extractor ensure positive extraction and ejection of spent cases while the extractor does double duty as a loaded chamber indicator. The barrel features polygonal rifling for enhanced accuracy, easier cleaning and longer barrel life. The slide reciprocates on four steel inserts that are integral to the fiber-reinforced polymer frame. To make it southpaw-friendly, the pistol’s magazine release paddle is located at the base of the triggerguard where it can be activated by either hand. The slide release is well shaped and positioned for easy manipulation and the control lever (a.k.a. safety/decocker lever) can be mounted on either side, although moving it to the starboard does require additional components.
