    I believe they are. In fact I'm almost positive. The primary difference between the Compacts and full-size is the barrel length if I'm not mistaken.

    Whenever I've gotten new mags, all I ever ask for is "Need a 12-round mag for a USP."

    No, they're not the same. Full size mags are a bit larger (wider and deeper). They won't interchange.

    The P2000/P2000SK can use compact mags though, maybe that's what is causing the confusion here?

    Hmmm well there you have it. I get my mags from my local shop that knows me by name. They prolly just knew what I needed.

    Glad someone else jumped in with the correct info.
