Since the USP Compact was launched in 1996, shooters from all walks of life have coveted it. In this episode of TFB TV, Patrick takes his old concealed carry companion out to the range and spends some time getting reacquainted with the chunky pistol. The USP Compact has deep roots in the USSOCOM Mark 23 Offensive Handgun and shares not only elements of its appearance with the much larger handgun but also much of the technology gained by the Mark 23’s development.
The robust design is not the only thing that we got from the USP series, it was also the first handgun commercially available with an accessory rail on the frame. In addition to all that tech packed into its compact polymer frame, HK made it infinitely customizable with near a dozen variants ranging from right-handed V1 models like this one, all the way to DAO and left-handed variants.
