    Identify this gun for me

    I saw this on Remington's handgun ammunition page. Can someone identify it for me please. My guess is it is an Hk, with a safety on the side for righties. Am I correct?

    Yeah, that's an HK USP, I don't recall which variant, I want to say the variant 1 has the single sides safety/decocker, but with 6 or 7 different variants, I can't keep them straight.

    Here's some text from HK

    * The operation of the pistol - recoil operated weapon with locked breech and tilting barrel
    * Braking of unlocking and buffer blow via a spring element
    * Grip and magazine made of glass fibre reinforced polymer with corrosion proof metal inserts
    * Modular design with customer-specific design possibilities, for example:
    - SA/DA Variant Double Action/Single Action with safety lever for safety and de-cocking function, arranged on the right or left side
    - SA/DA Variant Double Action/Single Action with safety lever only for de-cocking function, arranged on the right or left side
    - Variant DA Double Action with safety lever for safety function, arranged on the right or left side, without de-cocking lever
    * Integrated support rail for aiming units
    * Magazine capacity 15 cartridges (9 mm x 19), 13 cartridges (.40 S & W), 12 cartridges (.45 Auto)
    * Open square notch rear sight with contrast points
    * Hammer strut lock (Gun lock) with key upon request.

    You guys are SUPER FAST. HOLY COW. anyways, I was right yay. It just looked like it was quite slim in the grip department, and AFAIK the HK's are all double stack. Thanks for the quick replies.

    If you are left handed look at the H&K P2000. It is ambi. I just bought one 3 days ago. It's an awesome shooter.

    All the 'newer' HK's can be made with a left or right-sided safety/decocker (or no safety at all with an LEM modification).
