The USP series are very accurate. Tough as nails barrels. Barrel sits too high in relation to the hand causing excessive muzzle flip. Mags can be inserted backwards under stress. Full size mags do not work in compact versions.

Mine had a small spring break that kept the hammer from cocking. It is the first gun I have ever had to send in for repair and I rarely shot it. It was a nice gun and was very reliable and accurate plus had the 1911 controls. I traded it for a Glock.

I have 2 H&K USP's one Elite and one Standard full size both 45 ACP.
I've fired thousands of rounds through these handguns, without any problems at all.
I've even tried to induce a malfunction by dragging through dirt mud so on.
One thing that I like is the guns ability to be carried Sig style or if you like can be carried cocked and locked like venerable 1911.

We call it Condition 1, I'm not familiar with the trem "Sig style". I think more members would recognize it when referred to as Condition 1. (Thanks Col. Cooper!)

From Wikipedia
Cooper favored the Colt M1911 and its variants. There are several conditions of readiness in which such a weapon can be carried.

Cooper promulgated most of the following terms:
  • Condition Four: Chamber empty, no magazine, hammer down.
  • Condition Three: Chamber empty, full magazine in place, hammer down.
  • Condition Two: A round chambered, full magazine in place, hammer down.
  • Condition One: A round chambered, full magazine in place, hammer cocked, safety on.
  • Condition Zero: A round chambered, full magazine in place, hammer cocked, safety off.

Here is a FULL REVIEW VIDEO:
I agee with you, I have owned and shot many weapons, my favorite is my HK USP. 40, but wouldn't make the claim best ever.( many members will quickly dispute that, even the ones who may not be familiar with the USP's ) I will say that it is the BEST for me. Best is very subjective. Pricey?,, sure. Worth it? IMO, Absolutely. But then again that's just MO. Angto address the post of the guys USP stovepiping, I would guess he was limp wristing, but again just a guess

The ONLY time my usp 40 has stovepiped is when my 15 yo daughter shoots it, limp wristing. I've put around 2k rounds through her, never had it happen to me.

Now that I think about it,my buddy may have been limp writing it.hes a big guy but is still relatively new to guns,we shot my .357 sp101 on the same outing and it was getting the best of him,thought for a second it may jump out of his poor grip on the thing. So he may have been doing the same with the USP and it was just not as apparent as with the sp101

Yeah, i like H&K but, cant see spending a grand for one. I even saw one last week at the pawn shop for $699!!. If they were a little more in my range i would like a .45 USP compact.

I have a USP 9 and quite honestly I don't see what the big deal is about H&K. I bought it because I really wanted to see what all the hoopla was about. The gun is OK, but that's about it. It is overpriced. The magazine release is poorly designed and can easily pinch your fingers. The magazines themselves are horribly overpriced and poorly constructed compared to a metal lined, drop free Glock magazine. A 33 round Glock 9 MM magazine can be had for about $31.00. A 31 round H&K USP magazine runs $140.00. That is insane. Also H&K has a buyer be damned attitude because they are heavily reliant on their military contracts. If it weren't for them they would starve. As I said the one I have is OK, but it is not my favorite 9 MM. I won't be rushing out to buy another.
