"The HK USP is a fairly comfortable pistol with a good amount of recoil. The safety and decocking lever work well. The DA/SA is consistent and crisp when pulling the trigger. I would like the front of the pistol grip to be rounded off like the back-strap. This would make it even more comfortable. The three dot sights make it easy to sight in, but the front sight should be slightly larger to compensate for the distance from the rear sight (this would make all three dots the same size when sighting in). A major flaw with the pistol is the slide release. It unintentionally comes out when cocking the pistol (this is more for right-handed shooters who have their finger placed just above the trigger guard). A detent clip/spring would prevent the lever from sliding out and causing the slide to jam up on the lever. One last complaint is the weight of the pistol due to the fact that the outer barrel is plastic. It seems the magazine is almost as heavy as the pistol. When you remove the magazine, the weight is unrealistic and almost feels flimsy. With that said, the structural integrity is seemingly sturdy and durable. The recoil rod and spring guide mimic the real-steel pretty well (has a secondary buffer spring). "All I can say about this gun is that it feels good, it looks good, but there are parts of it that could use some work. I don't know if the USP I got was already faulty or not, but after putting 50-80 rounds through it and taking it to one airsoft game and using it once then, the catch on the slide stop completely broke off, looking like extremely cheap and flimsy metal, and then there's the fact that no airsoft shop I have looked through has a replacement piece.
While the whole thing looks and feels great, it seems to be made from cheap parts, and will be returned and refunded as soon as I can manage. "The KWA USP is officially my CQB weapon of choice. Unless I'm rapid-firing, there's no way to miss a target.
On December 28, 2014, I used nothing but this USP for the entire day at my favorite CQB arena, and I never lost a firefight while using it. I played a bodyguard role for two different VIPs, and I took down the only enemy to sneak around my allies with a single shot. I was also the last one alive in a room under siege, and I managed to hold it using the USP with three rounds and a Cold Steel rubber trench knife.
I actually did not buy this gun. Airsoft GI accidentally sent this instead of the USP Match, but refunded me the difference. I later bought the Match version, but I still use this one more.
So this gun's performance is amazing. The magazines are all high-quality and hold enough gas to get the job done. It has also never double-fed, jammed, or malfunctioned. Muzzle velocity stays consistently around 280-300 fps. The sights are fantastic; I can acquire my target easily and fire several shots with both speed and precision.
I make sure to keep my USP handy with two spare mags in my favorite shoulder holster when not in use. (http://www.evike.com/products/39483/) If I foresee a situation that will require a lot of ammo, I borrow the magazines from my larger USP Match, a great field pistol. Overall, it's a great value, even if the gun itself is $150. Rest assured that you get what you pay for with this model.
- ~300 fps muzzle velocity; CQB-friendly, but still nothing to laugh at.
- Perfect accuracy, easy-to-use sights.
- Full HK trademarks.
- Durable; has been dropped once or twice, with no consequence.
- Compatible with slightly longer USP Match magazines.
- Compatible with most (if not all) full-size pistol holsters.
- Looks great, especially when paired with an MP5.
- Expensive, but totally worth it.
- No extended magazines available. "I have owned this gun for about 8 months now, and have fielded it several times.
-Great looking replica
-very comfortable in the hand
-fires quite accurately with the hopup adjusted properly
-ns2 is very efficient, around 3 mags per gas fill, sometimes more
-fires consistently around 330 fps
-easy to disassemble, clean, and lube
-TRADEMARKS, H&K trademarks are beautiful in my opinion
-The safety, it feels very loose, and when engaged, if i pull the trigger down a few times the safety wiggles into fire
-polymer outer barrel, it has not given me any issues i just wish it was steel
-no threads available unless you purchase a new outer barrel
-No rail on the bottom unless you order and adapter "This pistol has great performance and the look and construction is excellent. The one big problem that happened is after firing maybe over 100 bb's, the slide stopped fully cycling. I took the gun apart and there was no problem but when I disassembled the ns2 system I noticed that the rubber on the piston head which allows the gas not to escape was cracked and part of it was gone. Without the piston head the gun will not work properly. It was very shocking to think kwa put such a crumbly crackly rubber. If you buy this gun I would make sure that you oil the piston head after every 3 mags or so. Great pistol but only lasted for a little over 100 shots. I hope you learn to take good care of that pisto. Head so you don't waste 150 dollars. "When this gun is actually working it is FANTASTIC. However it came to me already broken (faulty O-Ring and recoil spring). Now after returning it, it works flawlessly. It is a little weak on the recoil, but it can only be so good. It's lightweight, with metal where you need it and not where you don't. It is also actually balanced, unlike most pistols I've seen. Overall, it's a 9/10.
-Realistic weight (fairly light)
-Great hop up
-Decocking lever (pull down on safety switch)
-Godawful repair/warranty service from KWA (you actually have to get it serviced through Umarex USA)
-No threaded barrel/removable orange tip "This KWA USP is another great gbb from KWA. When I opened the box and picked it up, the gun was very solid and felt very nice in my hands. The upper slide is metal and the lower frame is plastic, but nice plastic. This gun is licensed so you get the beautiful H&K trades on it. The gun also has a functional decocking feature which is activated by pushing the saftey catch down. It is much wider than a 1911 and is slightly wider than a Glock so if you have small hands, this can be a big gun for you. The slide wobbles left and right but it is very small and not noticeable when in use on the field. One full charge of green gas can last you a little more than 2 full loads of bbs. Very gas efficient and accurate up to 100+ feet which is impressive for a handgun. one thing to note is that the outer barrel is plastic and the gun was very dry when I opened it up. The plastic used on the outer barrel isn't terrible but should be handled with caution. As for the internals being dry, it can be easily fixed with some proper lube. Overall, a great, reliable sidearm.
NS2 system is reliable
Good weight and functional decocking system
Wide gun (can be a con if you have small hands)
Ambidexterous mag release
Licensed by H&K
Outer barrel is plastic
Needs MAJOR lube
Pros outweigh cons here, so go get this gun! "This is the best gun I have ever had. It is 1/1 to the real USP and it shoots amazingly. 200+ feet I got right in the center of my target. Olny one problem, the hopup breaks easily. "OK first things first i absoultly love this gun......but it has some minor problems. I had used it in a pistol only match and it worked perfectly for it. after shooting this gun multiple times and using multiple mags, something very weird happened....... the safety catch broke...... not very helpful at all.......
1. nice decent fps
2.not a gas hog
3. nice sights
1. the safety catch
2. the ugly orange tip
all in all it is worth it but be careful about the safety catch "if you are looking for a pistol this is it
easy to shoot
reallistic down to the serial number
its too good "This is a fantastic weapon and one of my favorite pistols i have shot thus far. KWA is known for their great weapons and this is no exception. My friend purchased this and never used it because he is always rocking his KWA M4s system. He allowed me to use it and i was unsure. I fired one shot at a target that was unrealistically far away and the bb made contact. At once a large smile cracked my poker face. I put my CYMA galil down and wanted to see how i could do with only this one pistol. Every one else was out on my team and i clutched the whole game. I ended out taking out 8 people with it in less then 20min. I would not recommended using it as a primary, but there are few better secondary weapons out in the airsoft world.
The feel in your hand is comfortable, and the switch from safety to fire could not be much smoother. The box is padded which is nice, you may even want to transport it in the box.
The only down side is that the mags are expencive, at $40 for a mag you would be saving money with a m9 ptp, though m9s are less enjoyable. This weapon is great and you cant go wrong with KWA.
This review was to help potential buyers and if i helped you please say so in your review, thanks. "I totally agree with the post before me! This gun is the best bang for your buck!! I have had it for a few months and it is still amazing everytime I shoot it.
Out of the box it shot 380. I can go through a mag and a half with a fill of gas when it is 60 degrees out. and it is quite loud.
The only thing that I have had a problem with is the piece on the gun that locks the slide back snapped. It doesn't affect the performance. The gun still shoots like normal. A new piece is 14 bucks.
I highly recommend getting this gun even though it is a bit expensive compared to other guns. and the extra mags a 40 bucks a pop. Which is also kind of expensive. If you have the money, BUY THIS GUN!!! Displaying
