Biggest problem I've ever seen with police trade in is holster wear.

Sounds like a great deal...I'd jump on it.

I've purchased a number of LEO trade-ins and have not had a problem with any of them.

Given what I know about USP's (including my own) it would take three or four generations of LEO's to wear one out. I think someone on the web ran a torture test on a USP where he fired 20,000 rounds through it without cleaning and it still did not faile to fire
FWIT, Buds in Lexington KY often sells department trade-ins and I have yet to see a dissatisfied customer. I would be more comfortable with a department trade-in than one whos history is lesser known.

I've been searching for this very gun for awhile now. May I ask which store is offering them? (I promise I won't buy yours!) Thanks.
Great buys. I have bought several Leo trade ins. Not a bad one in the bunch.
LEO's don't shoot a lot. So the round count will be low.
However, they get carried a lot, so if you are nuts about finish (as I am) you won't want one.
As with anything, a great price trumps cosmetic appearance.
Look at Gunbroker and see if the LGS is really a great price. If it is, go for it.
River City Gun Exchange in Sacramento has them. There's 15 left now.
They come with the original case an 1 mag. The ones I picked through were in excellent shape. I snagged one that cannot have been fired more than a couple of dozen times and has very minor holster ware. I was way happy when I saw it. What a killer deal, $617 otd.
Thank you so much for your quick reply. It so happens that I am less than 2 hours away and I will be there tomorrow to pick mine out. Are the "safety" and "fire" markings painted in white and red?
I'd snap up a couple of them. Most LEO guns are only shot during training and recertification. GREAT buy at a great price. Safety and fire marks are in red and white.
