H&K M704501-A5 USP45 12+1 45ACP 4.41" V1
[M704501A5]
$811.00
by Andrew C Date Added: Friday 02 August, 2013
As a person who prefers double action pistols, I went looking for a high capacity .45, and I finally decided on the USP. I narrowed my search down to 2 pistols, the Sig P220, and the HK USP 45. I ended up buying the HK USP 45 for the slightly lower weight, and the high capacity magazines. I could not ask for more in a double action high cap .45. This pistol is amazing, from the aggressive stippling on the grips and great ergonomics, to the crisp trigger break and steady recoil. I own several other hand guns, a Beretta 96fs, a Kimber Custom II 1911, a Smith and Wesson 67-1 .38 Special, and a PX4 Storm Sub Compact 9mm, and I have to say, this is slowly becoming my absolute favorite pistol to shoot. If you're a recreational shooter, or a service member who's looking for the characteristics of the .45 caliber in a high capacity polymer double action pistol, I'd be comfortable saying in my opinion, HK should be at the top of your list.

Pros:

Crisp consistent Trigger pull (both single and double action)
Safety can be engaged with the hammer in all positions, including fully cocked.
Aggressive grips, and smooth ergonomic grip angle
Bright 3 dot sight system, very easy to reacquire sight picture shot after shot
High 12 round Capacity (10 rounds in some states)
Large trigger guard facilitating operation with all kinds of gloves
Smooth magazine action, dropping and inserting magazines is very smooth and vast
Large rigid slide release lever, very easy to operate quickly and effeciently
Smoother (than normal) recoil (much lighter than my 1911)
Easy to field strip
Parts are readily available

Cons:

Proprietary rail system needs an adapter for 1913, picatinny and weaver rail accessories.
Bulky block shaping makes concealment difficult
Extra mags are expensive
Double Action pull is a little heavy for shooters with smaller hands
