About HK USP
Heckler & Koch is a German company that manufactures handguns, military rifles, submachine guns, and grenade launchers. It’s story began after WW II. when the former designers of Mauser pistols started a machine tool plant in the former arms factory. They had responded to the need of the West German Bundeswehr in 1956 and their need of firearms and built the G3 rifle, which was based on the design of the Spanish CETME rifle. Upon the production, Heckler & Koch began developing new arms. In 1974, Heckler & Koch diversified into two business areas: HK Defense and Law Enforcement Technology and HK Hunting and Sports Firearms. Since then the manufacture of HK designed over one hundred new types of firearms which are used worldwide to the satisfaction of civilians, law enforcers and military. Heckler & Koch have received many contracts and one of them was a contract for the US Military to produce the kinetic energy subsystem, which they successfully done. In 2004, Heckler & Koch was awarded a major handgun contract for the Department of Homeland Security, for up to 65,000 handguns. This contract ranks as the single largest handgun procurement contract in US law enforcement history. Heckler & Koch are now selling firearms to the American market and have three locations, Virginia, New Hampshire and Georgia.
The USP in HK USP stands for Universal Self-loading pistol. H&K released the weapon in 1993 available only as a .40 S&W; a good compromise between speed and penetration of a 9mm Parabellum and the dropping power of a .45 ACP. Shortly after, a 9mm Parabellum version was introduced after the USP .40 S&W caught in the US.The USP standard is also good model to serve the needs of a user who intends to use a single pistol for a multiple purposes. There is also a compact version of the USP that makes the handgun easy to “concealed carry” and stow in various locations.The USP frames are made from polymer and have stainless steel inserts in locations that are subject to the most stress and friction (HK USA Web Site). The use of a frame that is not completely metallic drastically reduces the weight of the USP. The standard model USP weighs in at less than two pounds, regardless of caliber (The Unofficial Heckler & Koch USP Home Page). The polymer material, in addition to being lightweight, allows the frame to be thinner in some areas such as the magwell.
Another feature that makes cleaning easier is the contained recoil spring on USP pistols. During firing, gasses cycle the slide back then the recoil spring pushes the slide back forward to chamber the next round after the recently fired round has been ejected. On conventional weapons the recoil spring is compressed and can literally fly out of the weapon during disassembly if a user is not careful. The USP series also features a lanyard loop, a feature that is common on combat pistols, that allows a user to attach his or her weapon to a belt, strap, or other object. All USP handguns feature an accessory rail under the slide just in front of the trigger guard that allows users to easily mount standard size tactical flashlights, laser sights, pistol bayonets, and other rail mounted accessories. H&K also included a safety device in the magwell of all pistols delivered on or after October 1999 that prevents these pistols from firing when a user activates what is referred to as a lock out device by using a small key. In conclusion, the Heckler and Koch Universal Self-loading Pistol is well designed and suits the needs of a variety of users. Heckler and Koch is able to reach a diverse group of users because the USP is offered in such a wide selection and combination of models and sizes.
