This would be my first H&K.

It is a very lightly used, clean, full sized USP .40 Var.1 with six thirteen-round magazines, plus all the original case/lock/manual etc. The date code makes it a 2007.

All my other pistols are .45, but I like the idea of something between .45 and 9mm for a number of reasons.

They are asking $450 for everything.

This seems like a pretty good deal to me, but I've never payed any attention to the used H&K market.

Two general USP questions:

1 - How are the factory sights? Would I need to consider adjustables or other aftermarkets right away?

2 - I  see some trigger complaints - How is the match trigger? Worth it? Easy to install or easy to find someone to install it?

Thank you for your input; please be kind,

I love USPs especially .40s

The sights are fine I prefer nite sights if they dont have 'em though

The trigger isnt great but plenty manageable I dont know anything about HKs match triggers

The match trigger works better for me.

Get it.

Don't worry about the trigger, just start putting rounds through her.

The only sights you should get are Trijicon's. I have them on both my USP 9 and USPC 40/357Sig

Good deal!  That's what I have into my beater lefty decock only with four magazines and holster––and mine's a 1994 with burnt out night sights and plenty of wear and tear.

Totally a "buy now".  I really like my USP.

Buy it. You won't be sorry. If you don't buy IM me and I'll buy it, I'm looking for another one.

I'd have already bought it. That is a great deal, in my book.

I have no complaints with the factory sites, save that they don't glow. They do what they're supposed to and are easy for me to pick up.

Personally, I have no complaints with the trigger, either, but I'm not very picky about triggers. To me, it's not quite as good as a decent 1911 trigger, but not different enough to bother me. I'd shoot it to see what you think. I've never send a gun out for trigger work and I won't be starting on my USPc.

The ONLY complaint I have with my USPc is that mags are pricey. Other than that, I'm completely sold on the platform.

I would buy that in a heartbeat. That's a great price.

I have been shooting three dot night sights my whole life. I actually prefer them over others. Even in competition I run them. Works for me.

If you decide you want the match trigger and you're in Austin, I can install it for you. PM me if you're interested.

Buy it.  I have a USP40.  Mine was lightly used too.  I love it!!!!  Use it as one of my ccw pieces.  Mine is a V1 DA/SA that can be carried cocked/locked.

These are very accurate pistols.  DA to SA transition can be a little getting used to but no biggie.

Thanks for your input, everyone; got it, shot it, .

Looks like I'll need lots of practice - I was hitting pretty low.

Point of Impact is BEHIND the front sight when sights are properly aligned.
