Control Lever

This manually operated lever is located on the side of the frame below the rear sight. This lever is operated with the firing thumb and can perform both functions of a safety lever and a decocking lever, depending on the parts installed.Note Some variants do not have a control lever.

Control lever as a safety lever - On HK USPs with the "SAFE" position (Variants 1, 2,5,6,9, & 10), the front of this lever is fully raised above horizontal so that the "S" on the lever itself aligns with the reference line on the frame. (See Figure 17A ) With this control lever engaged, the release of the hammer is blocked in the single-action mode of fire. In the double-action mode, the hammer will partially cock but will not release to fire the pistol.
