Paintball
Experience:
2 years
Similar
Products Used:
Delta 68
Marker Setup: Spyder Xtra stock, 17 inch barrel (dunno the company)
9oz Co2, 45 round hopper (smaller target, fun to use), Draxxus paint

PMI USP stock with Rage holster
Recommended
Upgrades:
Nothing really. If you add a bottomline, then you've missed the point of having a pistol. If you add a E-force grip, then you have an automatic pistol with 10 rounds... why?
Strengths: Lighter than other pistols
Cheap
Accurate enough
Very effecient
Weaknesses: Magazine difficult to reload
Piercing screw didn't work at first
Review: I bought my USP today, and I thought that it would work straight out of the box. I was wrong. The thing wasted two 12grams on me, since the piercing screw doesn't work. As much as I want to believe that this is a great product, at this point I can't reccomend it.

I'll take it back to the shop and see if they can fix it, otherwise it will be replaced. If the second one doesn't work, its getting a rating of 1... a product has to work to be ranked higher.

[edit April 27th]

I got it back from the shop after having it fixed, and it works beautifully! I'm getting much faster at relaoding the thing, and I suppose it isn't so much harder to reload than other pistols. It is VERY effecient. Tne 12gram is good for about 33 shots. It shoots fast enough for me, and it has a decent shot grouping for a pistol.

[edit Sept 4]

Finally got around to using it on the field. My Xtra kept breaking balls, so I had to use the USP often. It was very reliable, getting me two hits (considering its a pistol and there were two guys per team, this is good). Reloading was an issue. I think I might try the Overlord.
Conclusion: Because this is the best pistol I've used (but it reloads slowly), it gets a 9. You want a good cheap pistol that works well, this is the one.

why have an automatic pistol? the beretta 93r and glock 18 are both automatic pistols that work quite well for their purposes, CQB, and that is how I use my USP.

Yeah, but they have more than 10 shots per magazine. In fact, the Glock18 has an optional extended magazine. If you want to fire off ten shots in under a second, I guess that's your choice. But with the USP, the slow reload means that it isn't a good option.

[EDIT April 17th 2006] If you extend the magazine on your USP, however, I can see it being pretty useful in close. Not to mention rather unique. Who else on the field would have an automatic pistol?
