HECKLER & KOCH USP
The HK USP (Universal Self-loading Pistol) is the first
service pistol based on a modular concept. During development
of the USP, the requirements of the Military and Security
forces have consistently been taken into consideration.
Thanks to the use of an improved Browning locking system
with a patented buffer system, the USP recoil behaviour
is unobtrusive even during the use of the highest powered
ammunition. The buffer system reduces recoil forces and
increases both service life of the pistol as well as
improves recoil behaviour.
The modular design of the USP enables an individual adaptation
of safety and trigger mechanisms to any requirement.
