So, I've wanted to buy a USP for while now. mainly due to their legendary reliability. I would like a two tone model, I've never been a fan of all black guns. But the two tone models seem rarer than the normal ones, and thus, more expensive. I missed out on a full sized .45 stainless for $650. (https://web.archive.org/web/20190818214627/https://www.gunbroker.com/item/827081450) I'm rather peeved about that. I have several other guns I have been looking at. The first one I am heavily considering is a stainless USP 9 Compact. It comes a match weight, two mags, and the box/paperwork. He wants $1000 for it. Which I thought was expensive, but I this stainless USP 9 Compact just went for over 1000 on Gunbroker. https://web.archive.org/web/20190818224727/https://www.gunbroker.com/item/825573395 and the match weight seems kind of expensive on it's own. Would this be a good buy for $1000? The other things I am looking at are a stainless USP .45 compact for $750, and a full size HK45 Tactical (desert tan) for $730. The problem with those two is the low cpacity. I'd like at least 12 rounds if can manage it. For that reason I've also been considering an FNX45 tactical, that I can get brand new for around $850 brand new. I gotta admit, 15 rounds of .45 is rather appealing. I also could get a USP Match for $1650, but that more than I'd really like to spend unless it's an amazing deal. So yeah, there you go. I make a modest income, but I've been saving for a while to get something nice. I want that USP 9 compact, but I am afraid that maybe that Gunbroker auction just went way too high, and $1000 might be overspending.
