    Thats my new project for 2008. Between the two, which one would u choose and why? Pls help me decide on this one (in terms of reliability, accuracy, durability, etc).

    Primary purpose: as my carry firearm.

    Thanx guys.

    I would choose the HK which is better than any other firearm.

    Because you suck.

    And HK hates you.

    220, Sig triggers are IMO better than HKs.

    H&K. Preferably the full-size H&K USP 45. Both are large, bulky and expensive. But the USP has a higher magazine capacity. And manual safeties too- if you've been weaned on the 1911, you will like 'em.

    I know it's overused but: "Shoot both and see what fits better."

    Personally, I'd go with the HK just because HK has a local distributor so parts and mags are easier to get. (Not that you'd be needing any spare parts anytime soon.)

    Better yet, get both and sell me the one you don't like.:supergrin:

    maybe the HK45 can be configured to become the king of single action? equal to or at par with the 1911? :supergrin:

    I'll take the HK.

    - Polymer framed i just don't like alloys
    - Local support
    - Handles and shoots well for me
    - Excellent finish compared to the Sig

    The V1 (Version 1) is the set up allowing the HK to be carried cocked & locked like a 1911.

    :cool:

    Right!

    I have have tried both from units owned by friends and the H&K just feels better to shoot. But that's just me.

    Now all I need is money to be in the same enviable situation as jecht_sphere.

    wow! thanx for the replies guys. it seems HK45 talaga yata.

    This is OT, but the other reason why i want to buy another gun is because my G22C keeps on jamming on me. It's really disappointing. I didnt expect it that way. I tried magtech JHP 180 grain, factory load armscor FMJ, corbon dpx and they all jammed (in about 6 out of 15 rnds). Baka yun akin G22C lang talaga may diprensya. Its been like that since i bought it brand new in Trust Trade sometime in 2003. But because of the jamming issue, i seldom use/fire it.

    I hope the HK45 will not give me the same headache. Anyway, any suggestion which HK dealer in the Phils ang maganda mag offer? And how much (u think it is)?

    Wait for the ribbon cutting of HKTactical at Makati Cinema Square. Thery are just finishing up construction of the store. It is right in front of SOE near the Jethro firing range. Price will be in the 75-80k range I think.

    That's what they said. But i have it fired by a friend and another range officer and it jammed also.

    Likewise, (without firing the gun) i tried to cocked it fast and slow to empty the 15rnds mag but after probably 3-4 cocks, it jammed also.

    So i thought it's about time to burry my G22c and buy a new one.
