Originally designed for the American market with features favored by U.S. law-enforcement and military users, the USP has found international acceptance as an accurate and ultra-reliable handgun. All USPs use a fiber-reinforced polymer frame stiffened by stainless steel inserts at areas subject to stress and friction. The USP control lever, a combination safety and decocking lever, is frame mounted and quickly accessible, unlike the slide-mounted safeties common on many semi-automatic pistols. Using a modified Browning-type action with a special patented recoil reduction system, the USP recoil reduction system reduces recoil effects on pistol components and also lowers the recoil forces felt by the shooter. The modular design of the USP's internal components allows the control lever function to be switched from the left to the right side of the pistol for left-handed shooters. The polygonal bore profile provides increased velocity, easier cleaning, and longer barrel life and the universal mounting grooves allow for easy accessory installation. The USP Tactical incorporates a fully adjustable rear sight, a higher-profile front sight, an extended threaded barrel and O-ring, a match grade trigger, and an adjustable trigger stop. This double-action pistol features a blade front sight with an adjustable rear sight and includes two 13-round magazines and the original factory hard case. Its grips, metal, and bore are all in excellent condition.
