Looking good. I see what you did with that mag pic ;)

So for those of us that don't collect HK's, what makes this one special?

I know. Had an HK45 years ago. I'm just asking what makes this HK special in relation to other HK's

This gun is not overly rare nor does it have any special provenance.Its an AG date code ('06 vintage) and could darn near pass for new. As Nathan suggested, it's an HK :D

This particular pistol is special to me because i am becoming a bigger and bigger fan of the LEM trigger and its a USP 45, something i've wanted to get for a while. The other really cool part to me is the case and cleaning kit which are not actually original to this gun. The case was built for and came in a bunch of different colors for the MK 23 and the following USP pistols: Tactical, Expert, Match, SD9, and USPCT. The case is no longer in production and easily sells for $100-$150+. The cleaning kit, while not rare by any means is nearly complete and is a nice touch and can be found for $20ish.


All in all, i cannot complain. For $650 out the door, it had to come home with me.

Yeah, that's a deal I'd take even if I weren't in the market.
