Not a paintball gun but I know some of you appreciate these:

HK USP .40S&W Custom Combat with 16 round see through mags. My new combat handgun.
As far as expensive out of the box handguns go I shoot slightly better with a Sig, but only because I have more practice with Sig. I think this HK needs night sites OR I might get one of those laser & spot light UTL combos to hang off the rail on the front of the frame under the barrel. I don't like the rear sight for rapid precise shooting, it is all black. The front sight is great so long as I don't break it.

(I'm right handed as are the pistol's controls, but held left handed for camera in this one.)

Thank's for tip - I will either go that route or buy a new rear. I like the fiber front, but it isn't adjustable (unless I drift with punch). I was thinking about replacing the rear with an adequate fully adjustable sight.

Thank you, it shoots pretty good also, after I used about 100 rounds break in and to get my grip worked out on it. It is bigger framed then my other pistols so my trigger squeeze&pull had to adjust to get that bullseye consistently. It functions and breaks down like most other 1911 inspired autoloading pistols, however the polygonal bore looks unique. I shoot slightly down and to the left (about 1"below and 2"over@25ft). I shot it along with a couple other .40s to compare recoil. When going from the HK to something else it is apparent the other's recoil is a little more snappy. When you go from something else to shooting the HK, I at least don't notice that much of a difference. So far I have shot <500rnd factory ammo with no malfunctions.
I got it new at a good price $680. They had desert sand as well as the OD green that I picked.
16rnd mags are at $60 when available! I want to get at least 2 more for a total of 4.

For a foreign out of the box polymer framed double action and 1911ish type gun I'm happy.
