It’s possible that the Heckler & Koch (HK) USP45 Compact Tactical .45ACP pistol will soon be replacing the SIG P226 9mm pistol as the standard issue pistol/sidearm for the U.S. Navy SEAL’s. This information is unconfirmed, as yet.

The HK USP45 Compact Tactical pistol is apparently a Commercial Off-the-Shelf (COTS) USP45 Compact pistol with minor modifications. The HK USP45 Compact Tactical pistol incorporates an extended threaded barrel (for a silencer/suppressor) and Heinie-like heightend fixed sights. Magazine capacity is 8 rounds, barrel length is 4.46", and empty weight is 1.72 lbs.
