    Good evening everyone,
    I have been coming to this site for years and finally decided to sign up as a member. I have always enjoyed the insight and experiences that everyone shares here.

    I just picked up an HK Mark 23 and Im on the way to the range to put it through its paces. I will post some pics when I am done.

    I have to say that after handling this pistol for a while I am amazed a how well built it really is. Big, no doubt, but it is another exceptional product from HK.

    Cant wait to make her go boom!!!

    To the OP the MK23 is a awesome weapon. Its more of a novelty but still an awesome gun to own. Congrats, I bet it will be a blast at the range.

    Harhar I had to read that twice. Fortunately someone else quoted you first so the white text popped a little better.

    Enjoy your new cannon. 12+1 of 45 ACP ought to solve most of your handgun problems.

    I feel like I used to see them for about $1600 used just a year ago. No longer, I'm afraid.

    Not sure about that, but it is accurate.

    I have several 1911s that will outshoot my Mark 23.

    That may be true. But none of the 1911's say "I'm a bad@$$ uber Teutonic operator" as well the MK 23. And that's really what it is all about.

    The MK 23 is a fantastic pistol and one of the finest pistols ever built!

    And...


    It's way too fat for my hands. :crying:


    Congratulations!
