Hey all,
I've decided to make my USP my "nightstand" gun. Now I know the UTL will fit, but is there anything else out there that's better that will fit the HK rail?


Thanks
Rich

you can get an adapter and mount it under the rail so you can use other mounts

I'm running an X200 on my TAC with a sidearmor adaptor. I'm very pleased with both components.

Insight's M2 fits directly on the rails.

It's a UTL that says "M2" on the side instead of "UTL."

Subsequently, it's also usually cheaper to find than a UTL.

Thanks guys. How does the M2/UTL stack up against some of the newer lights out there now?

The M2/HK UTL are decent lights and they seem to hold up quite well. I have had no problems with mine but then again, they don't see all that much use because I think gun mounted lights are about a worthless as tits on a bore hog for civilian use. Still, they are plenty bright and seem to do the job they are intended to do. The BLAST 7 unit is very nice indeed also, but quite large. The Laser Devices (makers of BLAST) also have a more compact version that fits the HK rails and it too is very bright, brighter than the HK/Insight light to me. Surefire also makes a dedicated HK light that does not need an adapter but I have not seen that particular model first hand. Howeer, every other Surefire light I have is fantastic. IMO the 6P hand held and gun mounted lights that I have used for the 870 and AR-15 are far brighter than the UTL/M2 lights.

so the question I have is does anyone make a good holster for the USPT with a good light/laser combo, maybe with an open bottom for a suppressor

The Blackhawk thigh holster for the Mark 23 fits my setup perfectly. I have a CCF flash suppressor and the X200 on sidearmor mount mentioned above. The extra length of the flash suppressor makes up for the shorter slide of the TAC. I've also tried the eagle holster for the Mk23, but it is sewn shorter, so it doesn't fit with the CCF.

Lots of great deals to be had on ebay (I hate to say it even though they are anti-gun shits). I bought a slightly used M3 for $75 and it looks/works great.
