HK USP45CT and the Osprey 45 Supressor

I have recently gotten my hands on one of the HK USP 45 Compact Tactical pistols. These are small 8+1 round 45 ACP auto loaders that are setup from the factory with a threaded barrel for suppressor use.

The firearm is pictured above with the compact base plate on the magazine, a thread protector installed and the standard HK compact (bobbed) hammer. Below the pistol has one of the finger rest floor plates installed.

I prefer the finger rest version as it just feels better in my hand.

This particular firearm, and the HK45c that shares it’s magazine design, has a 10 shot extended magazine available. It has licked up the name Elephant Foot. I will add a picture at a later date.

This is another accurate offering from the good folks at HK. This example is a DA/SA but like the entire USP family the action can be converted to one of more than half a dozen variations by an HK armorer in about 30 minutes just by changing a detent plate and control lever

I admit it looks a bit disproportionate with the compact USP and a full size suppressor, however this is a very quiet and hearing safe combination.

I really like the offset manner in which the Osprey suppressors work. The sights are not blocked and the overall appearance is rather sleek
