Default Which HK USP deal do I do?

EDIT:Well since I want to eventually suppress it I have decided it is going to be a .45 as most of the ammo is already subsonic. So my two options are:

A. Brand new USP 45 Tactical Compact OTD for $1,164, dealer sale

or

B New USP 45 Tactical full size which i'm waiting to hear back on how much it isSo here is the deal. I want to pick up another USP(s).
What would you do?

FYI: I currently own a USP 9mm (2005) w/ jet funnel and a USP .40 (1995).

I think I would go with B. Its a very good deal. As far as the barrel, I'm pretty sure you can switch them out. Maybe swing by HKPro.com. A lot of knowledgeable people there. Let 'em know what your paying for it,really get 'em worked up!

Nothing wrong with a Sig.

Hell, you really can't go wrong with either gun IMHO. I would take the one that's the least expensive of the 2, and go from there.

If HK's are your thing then you can't go wrong with either. I agree with Jack, go for the cheaper of the two.

Thanks guys did just that!

HK USP .45 Tactical. Gun was brand new, previous owner bought it and ended up selling a lot of HKs to the local shop, one of which was this one. Gun has never been fired, it is perfect. Only "flaws" were that it wasn't in the original matching serial # case, only one 10rd mag, and no manual/papers. Serial numbers matched, definitely could tell it never was fired and I got the shop to toss in another 12 rd HK mag for $1k OTD. So the gun was just under $945. Very happy! Now I need to start working on the suppressor paperwork.

Going to go shoot it this weekend at the latest!



And here is the trio of them together (9mm, .40 S&W, and .45)
