Heckler & Koch USP Expert 45 45 ACP

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

Rugged, reliable and very accurate with different types of ammunition. We like carrying the USP Expert 45 cocked and locked, but welcomed the decocker as an extra safety.

We were able to operate the HK ambi magazine release with the strong-hand thumb by shifting the pistol in the hand. But some shooters will use the middle or index finger instead.
The recoil buffer assembly included 2 springs but the unit was removed as one piece. The O ring at the front of the barrel assisted in lockup.
The trigger bar seen reaching from above the trigger to beneath the hammer made single action fire feel lighter than its 4 pounds of resistance. But, in double action the press felt long and heavy.
