HK45 thoughts

Anyone shot one? Own one (Blade Runner, hint hint), have thoughts on one, etc.?

I have a lead on one at a great price and it's tempting me.

TIA!

negative. You can fire it once we set up a group outing to the range and test it out. You clean it afterwards though lol.

The full-sized .45 USP has a similar feel to, well any USP. The trigger is your standard USP trigger... long travel and can get spongy if not kept clean. Recoil management is good, and if it feels good in your hands, go for it!

I had a USP a few years back. It was a DAO version. I got rid of it, because I didn't like the DAO trigger. I will say it was a good gun. I liked it better than my Glock (except for the trigger). I wouldn't hesitate to get another one. I never had a jam or malfunction. HK quality.

I had the .45 tactical and I liked it alot, then I got a 9mm p2000 and really fell in love. The new ergonmics that hk put into their pistols was the only thing missing from it's previous lines. Solid manufactures who create supurbe weapons.

Willard: When I was home after my first tour, it was worse. I'd wake up and there'd be nothing. I hardly said a word to my wife, until I said "yes" to a divorce. When I was here, I wanted to be there; when I was there, all I could think of was getting back into the jungle.

I really dont think you can go wrong with an HK, especially if your getting a great deal on it.




HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

I rented one at Megasports sometime back. Nice gun, but in .45 I liked my worked over Glock 21 and my Kimber Classic better. I don't particularly like the HK trigger. That said, I love my USP9 with the match trigger group. Stock, I didn't like trigger at all. I only bought it knowing I'd put the match group in. As has been mentioned before, HK makes dead-nuts reliable pieces. You can't go wrong. (but for the money in .45, I'd rather have a nice 1911. trigger snob I am)

Oh, and FWIW, if I were to not mind the crappy trigger, I'd go for a Sig 220ST. 2 out of 3 of my handguns are plastic, but I really love the solid feel of a Stainless frame pistol.

Brian, I might be able to meet you tomorrow mid afternoon at Gat if you want to mess with mine. (hint hint...) Otherwise, I'm hammered till next weekend.

Oh, it isn't a 1911, but she be very very sweet.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.
