A local gun store has a USP-C in .40 for $489. I'm TOLD it only has 100 rounds through it. Most USPs I've been seeing are in the $700 range. Is this a good price or not?? Should I grab it or not ?? (Not that I NEED another handgun!!)
It LOOKS brand new. The barrel has hardly any wear on the black coating.(The outside of the barrel is coated with a black coating, not sure what) No scratches, dings or damage to the gun. The salesman, which I know pretty well, says the guy traded it in because he didn't like it because the grip was too small. It's no worse than my Taurus PT145 Millenium Pro. I may have to call him tomorrow and have him set it aside for me.
Well, it's NOT an H&K, but for the price, it shoots right well. The one I have prefers CCI Blazers, too, which is a major PLUS!! Other than a DE, it's the only semi-auto caliber that I can legally use for hunting.
FYI, I bought the gun tonight. As soon as I swipe back the camera from my wife, I will post a couple of pics. $520 after tax and out the door. I managed to get a couple of free range passes in the deal. It shoots right well. Out of 50 rounds a good solid 30+were in the black. A compact in a 40 is a bit much, especially for the novice. It has more recoil than my PT145 (45 ACP)
Looks like 2003 for the date code. While I was buying it, I did notice two small wear marks on the slide. Very minor, looks like holster wear. So, I'm hesitant to believe the story offered. The case looks like it's never been used and the magazines are in good shape with NO wear marks. Maybe next week, I can take some pics because the wife and kid are going to New Mexico for a trip for 10 days.
