USP Expert .45 V1 with cartridge loaded backwards in magazine
Buy USP 45 expert online.The USP Expert (9 mm Parabellum, .40 S&W, .45 ACP) was introduced in 1998, and includes all the features of the Tactical, but instead of the extended barrel being threaded and protruding from the slide,
the Expert uses a longer slide to accommodate the extended barrel. The larger slide adds weight to help reduce muzzle flip and felt recoil. The Expert has adjustable target sights similar to the USP Match, Elite and Tactical, but as on the Elite, the dovetail of the rear sight is lowered into the frame.Buy USP 45 expert online
The Expert may be used with an extended magazine well, or jet funnel, in 9 mm and .40 S&W calibers. These are used with larger-capacity magazines.
The Jet Funnel magazines are opaque plastic and hold 18 rounds for 9mm and 16 rounds for .40 S&W. The jet funnel magazine can be used without the jet funnel installed, in which case they will protrude slightly from the bottom of the magazine well.
However, when the jet funnel is installed, only jet funnel magazines can be used, as the standard USP magazines are now too short to lock in place.
The bobbed hammer was a factory option for the Expert if it was to be used in IPSC for the Standard Division because the original version “in its ready condition” did not fit the box for Standard division in IPSC.
Testing with a variety of ammunition proved the USP meets these high standards. During the USP testing phase, the recoil-reduction system reduces the force on the USP grip to approximately 300 newtons (67 pounds-force).
Peak force shock on competing .40 caliber polymer and metal framed pistols was around 5,000 newtons (1,100 pounds-force).
The primary benefit of low peak shock is a decrease in wear and tear on pistol components, a great concern with the +P cartridge in 9 mm, .40 S&W, and .45 ACP.
Reduction of peak shock forces also contributes to softer recoil for the shooter, although these “felt recoil” values are subjective.
