KSC System 7 USP Tactical 45 short review

I have been waiting for someone to make a nice factory USP Tactical for a long time. I was pleasantly surprised when KSC announced they would be adding the Tactical to their new System 7 lineup. As soon as Red Wolf had them up on their site I ordered one . Took about a week for me to receive my new GBB.

What you get. The box is a very simple grey box with a Styrofoam liner.


Inside the box you will find the gun, mag, manual, barrel plug, assorted extra paperwork and small bag of unmarked bbs.


The gun itself is very solid with no loose parts. It is mostly plastic but the finish is very close to the real thing. Hopefully aftermarket metal slides and barrels will be available down the road.


The gun has lots of little details that add to the realistic look and feel.


The controls on the KSC are ambidextrous and function exactly like the real steel. The weapon can be placed on safe with the hammer down or with the weapon cocked. The safety is also a decock.


Hows the gun shoot. With G+G .25 bios and propane this is about average.


The gun has a hard sharp recoil and can easily go a mag and half without more propane.


Fitting into a real USP Serpa. This took a little work on the front site channel of the holster. I had already Dremmeled out the channel for my RS Tactical but as it turns out the KSC front site is slightly higher and wider. Be very careful, my KSC actually got jammed into the holster before I Dremmeled it.


More to follow

Hows it stack up to the real thing?



Pretty well actually. There are some minor differences but they can easily be chalked up to slightly different models.


Differences that I noticed.
1. RS has night sights while KSC has a standard sights. It should be noted that both models have fully adjustable rear sights.
2. KSC has ambidextrous controls while RS has controls on only one side.
3. Serial number on the frame is a slightly different font
4. Several of the trades on the RS are filled with white paint

You can be the judge










Disassembly is essentially the same as the real steel. Pop out the slide stop and the rest is pretty easy. One issue I have noticed is removing the outer barrel. The barrel O ring is just enough so that the outer barrel can not clear the slide. I have no doubt if it were to be removed there would be no issues. I have no plans to remove to O ring because I'm sure it would break in the process.


Overall a very nice GBB. At $217 plus shipping it is a bit on the pricey side for a plastic GBB but if your looking for a Tactical it's definitely a great option.

how is the feel of the gun? by feel i mean, with the MK23 heavyweight model, the lower frame felt very solid in the hand. however, for a TM glock 17 for example (at least with the older versions) they felt more plasticy and toyish. how is the feel of the lower and the quality of the ABS?

It feels pretty much identical to the real the gun. The finish on the lower is as close to an exact match as I think you could get.

Actually here it is with an older KSC MK23

How do they shoot compare to the older ones if you have them?
