Our Assessment: This Heckler & Koch USP-45 Compact is a semi-automatic pistol chambered for .45 ACP rounds. The USP series of handguns were designed by Helmut Weldle from 1989-1992. The USP-40 was the first variant to be introduced in 1993 followed by the USP-9 and finally the USP-45 in 1995. The gun was designed for use by military and law enforcement, but it soon became a hit on the civilian market as well. This specimen has some light handling wear but it remains both aesthetically pleasing and mechanically sound.
