Ethan Hunt and Alan Hunley both love the USPc.

The P-series is not a sequel to the USP series. USP is military grade. The P-series was created as a lower cost alternative for law enforcement agencies. If it is simply an improved USP then then USP would be discontinued, but it's not, and there's a reason the USPc costs $200 more than the P2000.

That’s because H&K dropped the price in the last year or two. When I bought my P2000 LEM a few years back - online - it was $800+.

Similarly, you can buy HK45s for $700 these days...I paid a lot more when I sse’d mine back in 2014.

I got to handle the USP9c and the P2000sk V3 last week - the smaller size, lack of a safety, position of the de cocker and $200 cheaper made me go with the P2000sk. I still don’t get why it is $200 less. Quality wise they seem the same

I own the p2000 9mm, p2000 .40, p2000sk 9mm, p2000sk .40, and USP .45. If you don’t need a subcompact, go with the USP compact. The USP models are built like tanks. The old p2000 owner’s manuals mentioned not to shoot +p ammo.

Agreed but my point is that people are still responding as to what op "should" get even though he asked the question over a year and a half ago.

To be real, I had seen that he went back to the USPc before posting. I still posted my response to bring this old post to life. This old post helped me to decide to sell one of my P2000 models to buy a USPc. I figured if I update it, this post can help others that are new to the HK platforms

Yes... I agreed, and you actually weren't the one that "brought this old post back to life."

In Kahr talk, I think its fair to say the P2000 is like the new CM line vs. the P line. pretty much identical mechanically but different in fit and build raw material (not exactly but like cast vs. forge).

My first gun period was a USPc 9 (it doesn't have a patent number just patent pending label). So when I was ready or another HK I went with the P2000, also because of the roster. I will say the P2000 is easier to conceal.
