Comments: The H&K USP from Umarex is a very realistic replica of the firearm. The gun is manufactured for Umarex in Taiwan, probably by KWC. Although the slide and frame are made from lightweight plastic, the metal magazine gives the gun a good heft. The thumb safety and ambidextrous mag release function as they do on the firearm, but all other controls are purely cosmetic. The visible hammer, although spring loaded, is non-functional. An internal striker is used to open the valve when firing the gun. This is a non-blowback design, so the slide does not move. The DAO two-stage trigger has a long and smooth pull and releases crisply. Although it has decent power, the Umarex H&K USP, unfortunately, is not as accurate as many other replica BB pistols in this price range. However, for those looking for a hard-hitting, realistic replica of the H&K USP, this Umarex model is a better (and cheaper) choice than the Gamo PT-90.

Performance: Measurements were made on 6/22/09 at a temperature of 75 F and 14' elevation. A ten shot string was fired from a bench rest at 15' using Daisy Avanti BBs (5.5 gr). The highest velocity measured was 442 fps, the lowest was 400 fps (average of the 10-shot string was 411 fps, s = 13). A six shot string fired with open sights grouped at 1.10".

Right Profile:

 
Front View: The ambidextrous magazine release is located at the back of the trigger guard. All of the external controls of the firearm are accurately duplicated on this replica. However, only the mag release and the thumb safety are functional.

Loading BBs: The all-metal magazine of the H&K USP will hold 22 BBs. A speed-loading tool is provided to make it easier to load BBs through the top port while also hold the follower down. The spring follower locks at the bottom of the magazine during loading. Pushing the spring that protrudes through the base plate in the direction of the arrow releases the follower. If the follower is not released, the pistol will not fire any BBs.


 


 
Loading CO2: The CO2 cylinder loads inside the magazine. It is tightened and pierced using a 1/4" hex key supplied with the gun. The lack of a tightening screw gives the gun a clean and more realistic appearance. The gas valve is contained in the magazine.
