HK45- brief range report

Discussion in 'General Firearms Forum' started by Green Dragoon, Nov 17, 2012.


  1. Finally shot it today. (I just rejoined a gun club after a few years off).

    Anyway...shoots like a dream. 200 rounds of junk reloads and no malfunctions. Felt quite a lot smoother and more accurate than the G21SF it replaced.

    My only issue was "personal": Since I'm used to 1911 triggers and to some extent, Glock triggers, it took some getting used to "resetting" the HK trigger.

    Still though, that will come with practice. I love this weapon and after today, I have a large degree of confidence in it.

  2. Good (but not surprising) to hear you are enjoying your H&K.
     

  3. Congratulations. You have one of the premier handguns inthe world today, And yes, the HK trigger does need to be shot in, but once it is, its great. And the reset is longer than most, but its a combat handgun! Its meant to be that way. Once youre used to it, it shoots plenty fast enough.
     
  4. Excellent! I've also just shot mine for the first time last weekend, and have been trying to figure out how to get the front part of the trigger bar not to drag on the frame. I'm trying some grease there this time (TW-25) which I use mainly on rails. Hopefully, it'll work its way into that space.

    I really like the HK45 (and the P30, too!) but am having to adjust to the location of the magazine catch/release. I find myself using my fingers instead of my thumb on both of these.

    I used factory ball 230 gr. to break mine in, and will load up my own 230 gr. FMJ/Longshot for the next round on this.
     
  5. I'm glad you're liking yours. I remember we get them both at the same time. I'm looking at the P30 too.:supergrin:
     
  6. Congrats, I really like my HK's.

    How is the longer reset better for combat?

    JT, not sure it's "better" but military often requires minimum pull weights or tigger reset lengths. It's much more about the fact that militaries issue them to people who often have no where near the experience and training we handgun enthusiasts have.

    Oh ok. I can totally see the military having a requirement for reset length.
     
  12. Great pistol. Congrats
     
  13. Right, except the only military personnel that get issued HK's are Navy Seals. Regular military branches get issued the Beretta M9. Im sure Seals wouldn't have a problem operating the short reset of a Glock.
     
  14. Congrats! On a fine weapon.:cool:
     
  15. Grats on the Hk45!

    Right, except every company always hopes every new design is going to be so great it will be adopted service-wide. :whistling: At the time the HK45 was developed there was rumblings of the US military adopting a 45 service-wide.
     
  17. Thats true. Forgot about that.
     
  18. Congrats, on a fine weapon, enjoy.
     
  19. The US military is not HKs only customer. Or primary.
