Product Description

The HK USP Compact is a small frame pistol capable of firing the most powerful cartridges. Based on the full size USP models, these handy pistols combine compact size with optimum effective shooting performance. USP compacts are smaller and lighter than large frame USPs. The reduction in trigger reach and grip circumference increases concealability and enhances shooting ergonomics. Unlike some subcompact semi-automatic pistols that use a difficult to shoot two finger grip frame, the USP Compact uses a narrow, full hand grip frame. Easy to shoot, simple to maintain; the USP Compact is a reliable, safe, accurate and highly concealable pistol.

Average Customer Rating:
Submitted By: Michael R. on 01/15/2011

I bought this pistol back in May of 2010... have put several hundred rounds through it without a misfire ftf or glitch of any kind - it eats anything I feed it (various factory and reloads).

The primary reason for choosing this weapon was quality and reputation - let's face it, everyone needs an HK in their collection. The quality is clearly on par with any other top manufacture (but anyone researching would have determined this already). So I will point out personal likes/dislikes instead of rehashing what boatloads of other reviews have stated.

For reference, I currently own and shoot: S&W M&P .45, Sig SP2009 9mm, Taurus 24/7 Pro DS .40, and of course this HK USPc .40

Decocker/Safety - this is something I look for in all my pistols, I prefer condition 1 for HD, and condition 2 with safety on in the event of necessary personal carry. The USP has excellent designed decoker/safety and is one of my favorite aspects of this weapon.

Size - even though it's considered a "compact", it's more of a "sub-compact" but still reasonable for concealed carry (if desired) and tucks into small locations for quick access in HD.

It shoots accurate at relatively close range (15-20 yrds), but beyond that not so much (short barrel has it's drawbacks) - but even at distance beyond 20 yrds, center mass is not a problem - 6" groupings or less are achievable - of course this is coming form a non-professed pro or expert shooter, just an average weapons owner. The 3 dot sites are clear and easy to see - front and rear adjustable... white dot have remained bright and not faded (unlike some others).

As stated above, the quality is as good or better than the other three pistols I own and better than most that I have handled otherwise.

One of the pros could also be considered a con - the size; small enough for instances mentioned above, but not ideal for concealed carry. Also the weight; for a relatively small pistol, it's pretty heavy - I'm not sure of actual specs (you can look them up in description), but it feels as heavy as some full size pistols... also the width; it's a bit chunky. None of these are an issue for me necessarily - but I mention it in case others need to consider these factors.

Grip: The checkering is good for grip (especially with sweaty palms), but too aggressive for my taste. I'm far from "dainty" but I don't like having grips dig into my palm when firing. I put a Hogue grip overlay on it and it's more comfortable - but has altered the width of grip a bit (making it even more chunky)

Mag release: This is my least favorite aspect of this pistol - I'm not a fan of ambidextrous anything (mag release, or safety) - not only is it ambi, it's designed in a way that with my shooting style it digs into inside first knuckle of middle finger (shooting hand). It's more of a level than a button, you push down more than in - and because it's not round (like a typical button style) the front edge/corner is somewhat sharp. I dislike this design so much that I've had two gunsmiths look into altering it - possibly smoothing the edge or preferable omitting the right side altogether. It was advised to shoot it a while and see if I can adapt because altering it the way I'd want would disrupt the balance or possibly render the release inoperable... so I deal with it. I would like a factory or after-market option to switch to non-ambidextrous mag release - or install a different style ambi altogether.

One thing I didn't put in pro or con is recoil... well it's a .40 and a compact so recoil is gonna be felt no matter what pistol. It's not a positive or negative for me - it's totally controllable and as expected.

As stated initially, the quality is as good or better than the other three pistols I own and better than most that I have handled otherwise. All in all, I'm pleased with this weapon and would recommend it to anyone that isn't concerned about the minor cons mentioned.

As with all products I've purchased from Hinterland, the price is as good (and in most cases better) than I found anywhere else!
