HK USP 9 Gets Tactical Overhaul for 2015

hk_USP9_tactical_FFor 2015, Heckler & Koch (HK) is giving its popular USP 9 pistol a series of tactical upgrades.

The new USP 9 Tactical model combines the USP platform with HK's tactical pistol features such as a threaded barrel with an O-ring, a match trigger with an adjustable trigger stop and adjustable target sights.

As with all full size USP pistols, this Tactical version in 9mm utilizes a modified Browning-type action and HK's patented USP recoil reduction system, which lessens recoil effects on pistol components and lowers the recoil felt by the shooter. The USP 9 Tactical also utilizes the same control lever that can be switched from the left to the right side of the pistol to accommodate left-handed shooters.

Similar to previous models, the USP 9 Tactical can be converted from one firing mode to another, including a combination double-action/single-action (DA/SA) mode as well as a double-action-only (DAO) mode. The USP 9 Tactical accepts a number of different suppressors.

Armed with SIG Sauer's 9-inch-barreled MCX Virtus Pistol loaded with Black Hills' 125-grain TMK ammunition, Beckstrand attempts to ring steel at 600 yards with help from Hornady's 4DOF ballistic calculator in this segment of “Long Range Tech.”

How to Adjust Scope Parallax: Everything You Need to Know
