    First off my gun is a XD40 bitone. Comes with the special package so included is the speed loader, holster, etc. I am wondering if I should trade my XD40 + 300 rounds for a used HK USP Compact. Its a 9mm variant 1 with SA/DA with 3 magazines (they are dirt cheap anyways). So does this sound good?

    The USP is worth more. If you're thinking about trading the XD now then you'll think about doing it again in the future. You might as well just trade the XD now since you'll probably sell it later, anyway. At least you'll be able to sell the USP for a lot more.

    I'm an XD fan but the HK is worth more. Do it then buy an XD45 :bigthumb:

    I don't think it would be a lot more, but definately more. My XD is practically new with ~500 rounds through it and to sweeten it I threw in 300 rounds. I think realisticly I can get $400 for it without the ammo. What do used USP compacts go for? ~$500 for a good deal?

    $500 for a very good deal. $600 is probably more common. I've got a full sized USP that I won't sell for less than $550. It's not in the best shape.

    I hate SA/DA, I would keep the XD myself. Shoot the USP though first and see what YOU think of it. SA or an SA/DA, two different designs.

    I love the USPs (obviously). I carry them like SAO, but with the added benefit of a DA second strike if you need it :)


    edit: plus it's just worth more. I voted trade.
