It will be mine...






.... and suddenly I have the craving to buy an H&K pistol. I have no idea why. Anyone own one? You never hear much about them and I would like to hear from anybody who owns one. Also, I would be buying a suppressor for it and would like to get a .45acp tactical (barrel already threaded). A mark 23 would be cool, but the ones I have seen at gunshows are damn near the size of a desert eagle. Also, what is the going rate for a USP tactical? Prices seem pretty sporadic on the net, but from what I can tell they are priced like sigs.

An HK was the first gun I wanted to own. An MK 23 to be exact....till I saw and held one at a gun show. Just to big. Then It was on to a USP. Had my mind made up on a USP .40 compact. When I went to buy that first pistol I walked out with a Sig P226. Just liked it a little better. HKs are great pistols. Still like them and always drool over them when i'm at a gun shop.

It's huge and expensive.

USP 45 Tactical is more practical but less exclusive. USP 45 is great, the most accurate polymer gun. The rail is proprietary. Great guns.

I had to buy one to years back just because I needed a 9mm can. H&K was the only one I could find with a factory threaded barrel. It shoots fine, little bulky, but I hardly shoot it anyways.

I carried it for 6 months on my second deployment, and hated it.
Its a really big double stacked mag, which makes the grip HUGE. and the slide release is a looong reach.

The mag release was on both sides, which was nice. The trigger guard is really big, which allows you to wear fat gloves, and still fire the pistol. I dont remember much about the trigger pull. I dont have any pics with the silencer on it, But here is be putting a couple down range.

Its a big pistol

After looking at the picture, I remember the safety being rather difficult to work. Its just so flat, and there's not too much to grab onto.

Speaking of big, that's a big picture. Why don't you shrink it down some?

I had a USP Compact .45 and loved the gun, regret selling it. It was the absolute best plastic gun I have ever shot, and if buying another one would be my first choice.
Have seen them recently at the shows again for around $700 which is what I paid 13 years ago.

Mk23's are HUGE guns. But, they are also one of the best pistols you can get, so incredibly good in so many ways. Concealment isn't one of them though.

I hear you. I know they went through hell in the trials that SOCOM put them through and passed them with flying colors. I wouldnt buy the pistol to conceal. I really prefer full sized pistols for target shooting and walking around with on the lease. I have one handgun I use for concealed carry, but all my others are full size.

They have always appealed to me as a target pistol.

Just let me know man. If it were me I would look at a USP compact tactical.



I like the size and shape of the compact line over the full size line of pistols personally. I dig the MK23 but dont think I would ever buy one because of its huge size. It would be useless for me personally.

I bought a USP.40 in 1994. I have put thousands of rounds through it. It is still the best pistol I have ever owned/used. The only thing I have done to it is replace the mag springs with Wolf since I kept them full for years.
