The first prototypes of the USP (Universal Self-loading Pistol) appeared in the early 90ís while H&K was designing pistols for the Offensive Handgun Weapon System program requested by the U.S. Special Operations Command. The USP was officially released in January of 1993 and is still in service by military and law enforcement agencies nearly two decades later.
This airsoft replica features fully licensed Heckler and Koch trademarks through Umarex USA. Trademarks can be found etched on its slide as well as on the grip, magazine base plate and breech.
H&Ks Compact version of the USP was designed with a low profile, low drag design making it a perfect handgun for tucking under your plate carrier. The USP compact features a bobbed hammer, flared recurve trigger guard, white dot combat sights, an ambidextrous magazine release lever, oversized trigger guard for use with gloves and universal mounting grooves for installing accessories. Its thumb safety doubles as a real working decocker which resets the hammer to the forward position for safe carrying. Also included with the pistol are two interchangeable magazine base plates to better custom fit the pistol to your hand.
With a full metal slide the USP sounds as mean as it looks as the slide rings back with a distinctive clank on each bone jarring shot. This NS2 version features a redesigned blow back unit which produces a stronger recoil, higher muzzle velocity and improved gas efficiency. It also features a stronger recoil spring and redesigned loading ramp for more reliable feeding. The magazine has also been updated with a locking follower so you now no longer need a special tool to load it making it is possible to easily reload in the field.
On the firing line the USP Compact quickly proved that size really does not matter in its case. Punching out shots at 320 fps at the muzzle and connecting with targets 40 yards away, this little pistol performs more like a full sized sidearm than a compact.
