The HK USP Compact is a small frame pistol capable of firing the most powerful cartridges. Based on the full size USP models, these handy pistols combine compact size with optimum effective shooting performance. USP compacts are smaller and lighter than large frame USPs. The reduction in trigger reach and grip circumference increases concealability and enhances shooting ergonomics. Unlike some subcompact semi-automatic pistols that use a difficult to shoot two finger grip frame, the USP Compact uses a narrow, full hand grip frame. Easy to shoot and simple to maintain, the USP Compact is a reliable, safe, accurate and highly concealable pistol. This pistol holds 10 rounds of .40 S&W ammunition and features a blued finish and fixed sights.
