H&K USP 45 Expert

How come this is almost 50% cheaper than the 9mm version? Are these good or trash? Is it because if someone wants a "target" pistol they want to shoot 9mm and thus more demand for the 9mm version? From what I understand the 45 USPs have more features. Is it any more accurate than a USP Tactical with the slightly longer barrel?

    It's basically an improved MK23
    The 9mm ones are more expensive because 9mm is cheaper to shoot. The USP45s are the most reliable pistols ever made and if you like shooting hot ammo it'll be your favorite pistol. Because of the recoil spring setup you can shoot 45 Super +P+ without changing anything. I've shot a bunch of 230gr 1200fps handloads through a factory usp without excessive recoil or ejection distance.
    They make aftermarket threaded barrels for the expert which makes it functionally almost identical to the mk23. And if you put a brake and a stiff recoil spring in it you can handload to really insane pressure

        Demand for the 9mm ones is higher because the ammunition it uses is much more popular and affordable. This raises the price for the 9mm model.
        What about that does not make sense?

        9mm is popular.
        9mm guns are hot commodity
        9mm is a seller's market.
        Seller sets price higher for more money.
        Buyer still buys because 9mm is good, popular, ubiquitus and always in high demand by security firms, civilian and military markets.
        9mm will never go out of style unless someone makes something that's easier to shoot, has better ballistics and somehow has even less felt recoil, which will happen when the sun turns green.

      Redpill me on Expert vs Tactical. For some reason it is difficult to find a comprehensive comparison of the two variants’ features that doesn’t just state the obvious barrel and slide differences. I am seeing different sources make different claims about sights, triggers, and a few other things.

    barrel length doesn't mean mo accurate.

    9mm is much cheaper to shoot (24 cpr vs 40ish cpr) you can hold mo bullets in a 9mm, and it's easier to shoot a 9mm quickly.

    If you don't anticipate shooting it a bunch, frick maybe a 45 for half the price is a good get. I shot an expert for the first time last week after owning and shooting a standard usp for about 6 years.

    It's *nicer* shooting but not significantly so. basically identical double action and slightly better single action. The expert is much prettier than the standard or elite usp, and is my favorite usp aesthetically

      But sight radius does

      >The 9mm ones are more expensive because 9mm is cheaper to shoot

      demand for the 9mm is higher so they aren't getting discounted like the 45. This isn't complicated.

      Impressive bait, very nice

      they really need to make a 10mm of this. Would easily become the best non boutique 10mm on the market.

      They do/did but the were marked .40. Luckily for you, the vast majority of 10mm ammo is the exact same bullet at the exact same speed as 40 so you're not missing out on anything at all except upvotes on reddit.
      If you want hot handloads/boutique ammo, 10mm is humiliated by 45 so again, you're not missing out on anything except upvotes on reddit.

          USP45 mag holds 14+1 with follower swap and fits flush with the bottom of the frame
          RIA 10mm mag holds 16+1 and extends past the bottom of the usp frame. Put an extension on the 45 magazine to match the length and you're at the same capacity. Or you can just be happy having 2 less rounds of a cartridge that can shoot much heavier bullets with more power than 10mm

          >the vast majority of 10mm ammo is the exact same bullet at the exact same speed as 40

          substantiate this claim. It's untrue. Tired of seeing it. stop peddling falsehoods.

          It's a sad state of affairs. 40 hollow points tend to mog 10mm hollow points too ironically enough

        Why 45 gays have to lie like this? Are they really this insecure?

          I frequently shoot 45 that's hotter than Buffalo bore's 1200fps 220gr 10mm through a stock USP. 10gr of power pistol will get a 230gr bullet going 1200fps without excessive pressure; there's plenty of room for more power once you add a recoil spring and a compensator.
          10mm fanboys have a really hard time accepting that they can't compete with more case capacity and a much more efficient bore.

            how exactly did you determine it to not be excessive pressure? because that exceeds book loads by 33% and smokeless powder burns even faster with more pressure.

            also buffalo bore only gets their 230 gr +P to 950 fps, underwood claims 1000 fps. I'd assume they'd offer a 1200 fps standard pressure load if it could be achieved with an off-the-shelf powder.

        Nothing is popular in Europe because guns aren't legal there. There's a reason why most euro gun manufacturers build and sell most of their firearms in the US.

        you'll get the occasional hunter who wants a powerful pistol for boar defense and very rarely an aficionado who just likes it (pic related).

        but for the most part pistols are 9mm except historic pieces like 1911s, Swiss Lugers or whatnot.

                Sphinx was bought by KRISS to focus on duty pistols and then got into financial troubles.

                the semi-custom Sphinx pistols were reborn (thus the name) as PHX Phoenix, but they only offer 9mm as of now.

            The Danish Sirius Patrol in Greenland carries Glock 20s for polar bear defense as they found 9mm doesn't quite cut it. They also use M1917 bolt-actions as .223 isn't very good for dangerous animals either and they need something that can work reliably in the cold.

    I can't speak to the accuracy of other USPs but I personally love my .45 Expert and it's my favorite handgun. As the other anon said, it's fuctionally an MK23 that's better in every way and cheaper. If you have a chance to grab one I highly recommend it. Personally I'm building mine out as a suppressor host because I can't be asked to go buy subsonic 9mm
