The next pistol I buy will be another .45. The last 3 were 9MMs and I never had a 9MM before that. I think I'm good on 9s. That 6" is long. The trigger variants with the USPs are confusing too. I think I could be happy with an Elite. Does that one have it's own type of trigger because all the info I see just says adjustable match trigger ?
The upgraded USP’s—Elite, Expert, Match, and Tactical—all come with Match triggers. They’re almost always V1–DA/SA with safety & decocker on the left (right-handed shooter setup).
The Match trigger is pretty nice; a little lighter DA, a little lighter & crisper SA, and adjustable for over travel. I have found they do need to be shot in (or dry fired) for a couple hundred rounds before they get really nice.
As for the variants…I’d wager 90% of USP’s are released as V1; of that other 10%, the majority will be V3 (decock only, right hand shooter) and LEM (preloaded/light DAO).
It’s very unusual to see the even variants (left hand shooter) come that way from the factory…and I’ve never seen a factory V5 or V9, and only a couple of V7’s (DAO).
