The HFC USP is a Full Metal replica, as everything that's metal on the real gun is metal on this one. The metal parts include the slide, barrel, trigger, mag and slide catches, safety/selector switch, hammer, recoil rod, and magazine. The frame is made of matte black plastic, but with no flex, bending, or other detrimental flaws. The grip features checkering on the front and rear, and textured side panels as well. You should have no issues holding on to this thing when firing. The checkering is more or less perfect, offering enough grip to be secure. The front of the frame has a closed end USP specific rail for mounting lights, lasers, etc. You need an adapter to mount things on it, which is available at various retailers. There is also a lanyard loop at the bottom of the grip, behind the magazine.
There is one mechanical safety on the gun, and that is the 3 position lever located on the left side of the frame. The topmost position is safe, middle is semi, and the bottom is full auto. Clicking it into the fire modes is quite easy and smooth. When on safe, the trigger pulls entirely, but is disconnected from the rest of the firing mechanism. The magazine release is ambidextrous, and is located at the base of the trigger guard. This replica has a working slide catch. The sights are black and feature white painted dots for enhanced target acquisition. They technically are fixed, but you can drift adjust them for windage. The included magazine is metal with a plastic base, and holds 18 6mm BBs in a double stack configuration. The base has the extended finger groove, but the package comes with an extra flat one.
The package contains the USP, its magazine, the extra magazine base and a plastic carrying case.
The USP (Universale Selbstladepistole or "universal self-loading pistol") is a semi-automatic pistol developed in Germany by Heckler & Koch GmbH (H&K) of Oberndorf am Neckar as a replacement for the P7 series of handguns. Design work on a new family of pistols commenced in September 1989 focused primarily on the U.S. commercial and law enforcement markets. The USP was formally introduced in January 1993 with the USP40 model (the base version) chambered for the increasingly popular .40 S&W cartridge, followed soon by the USP9 (using the 9x19mm Parabellum cartridge), and in May 1995—the USP45 (caliber .45 ACP).
