    I picked up an unfired/NIB GKK-45 (known as the ACK in Hungary, I believe) a few months ago on a lark. Here are my photos, even though they still don't compare in quality to BAC's. :crying: I'm going to have to monkey with the camera settings and lighting until I can get similar colors and contrasts.

    I like the gun. It's certainly not the most refined piece, but the bluing is nicely done for such a cheap gun, and it shoots well, once you adjust to the gritty trigger.

    Very nice ATX

    They aren't overly refined, but they are solid pistols.

    I picked up a GKK a few months ago but haven't had it to the range yet. I bought it from a friend based on his description, without seeing it first.

    I'm moderately pleased with it; I'm not sure I would have bought it if I had handled it first. The slide-to-frame fit is much looser than I'm used to; other than that, the workmanship and bluing seem flawless. But it's actually larger than a standard 1911, particularly in the grip, which I find to be awkwardly shaped, even for my large hands. For some reason that bothers the heck out of me.

    I've found a couple of spare magazines, but other than that, GKK parts seem to be nonexistent. Well, I knew it was an orphan when I bought it, so I can't complain.

    [edit] I went off to do some looking again, and it looks like Gun Parts Corp has a sizeable selection of spares for the GKK. Back when I first looked their site returned nothing. I don't know if they recent;y got parts in, or their site had the gollywobbles when I looked before.

    I'd sooner compare it to a Hi-Power, which is the gun its loosely based on, not the 1911. It is quite a bit bigger though.

    Congrats, it looks like a BHP and a S&W 39 had a baby.

    Yeah, I guess they do have some traits from both.

    No matter what you think it resembles I personally like the look of it. In fact I will be picking one of these up by the end of April. Very few rounds put through it and it is in excellent condition. Ran into the guy selling it at a local gun show, private owner. Was 13 minutes to close so I got his name and number and have worked out a deal since he is out of state. It should go nicely with my FEG PJK-9HP :)

    9mm, picked it up a month or so ago. Had a problem with the bullets rotating nose down and jamming on the feed ramp (HP). Not so much a problem with ball ammo. I put some S&W style followers in the mags and lessened the feeding problem, but still not 100% with HP, almost 100% with ball. I've got to polish the feed ramp and check the mag lips to see if that helps. Nice gun, like the feel of it, hope to be able to get it up to reliable enough for carry and not just range toy status.
