Our Assessment: From https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heckler_%26_Koch_USP#USP_Elite “The USP Elite (9 mm Parabellum, .45 ACP) takes features found on the Tactical, Expert, and Match models, and combines them with a 6.02 in (153 mm) barrel  and hand-fitted 9.25 in (235 mm) extended slide. The Elite also includes higher-profile fully adjustable front and rear sights. Certain models of this gun also have a slightly longer slide release, or have the mechanism itself moved further toward the grip, for increased comfort. The Elite is slightly more accurate, but longer and somewhat hard to carry for uniformed personnel. Most USP Elite models are used as target pistols and can be found in many competitions.” The HK USP is one hell of a tough pistol and were designed to take the worst beating you can throw at it. This one looks to have seen minimal use and comes with just about every accessory you’d want to begin with. .45 ACP’s stopping power is indisputable, the cartridge saw service in both World War conflicts, this 6″ pistol should add some power over a standard 5″ 1911 barrel.
