The Heckler and Koch Universal Self-loading Pistol is a semi-automatic large-frame pistol chambered in 9mm, .40 S&W and .45 ACP. The USP was introduced in the late 80s and HK designed it specifically for law enforcement and military use. Later on down the line USSOCOM picked it up as well as other allied forces.

The USP stems from the Model 1911 pistol, a popular and dependable design from the 20th century. Where the USP differs is the polymer grip instead of metal, which makes it lightweight at around 1.5 pounds. Shooters can pull the slide back to set the trigger for single-action or de-cock it with the safety and set it for double-action. It has an ambidextrous magazine release and safety. On the front of the lower receiver is a universal rail, so lights or lasers can be attached. And, for further safety and to prevent unwanted users, it has a patented Lock-Out Safety, which disables the weapon with the turn of a key.
