Ben,Didn’t want to start a new thread......
If anyone is interested, the shop where I just bought my new P30L just got in two Mark 23 pistols yesterday, he swears he didn’t order them. Hk said he ordered them at the 2019 Shot Show where he ordered my P30L.
He said he just wants to move them, he said $1800.00 each. He says that’s a great price on these, I haven’t researched them so I don’t know?
If anyone is interested, PM me and I’ll shoot you his contact info.
Didn’t check any date codes, but no doubt the one I handled today was brand new.Ben,
That is interesting. My local dealer got another Mk23 in a few days ago-I put a deposit on it yesterday.
I haven’t seen a Mk23 in shops around here in many years, and then my guy gets in two of them about a month apart?
Mine is, I think, a BH date code, but it was sold as brand new, and it certainly looks it. I paid a bit more than your dealer was asking-1850 bucks plus the gov’s share(tax).
It is enormous, no doubt. I really have no practical use for one, honestly? I mean, the USP will do anything the Mk23 will, and it’s much more ‘portable’. I still want one, though.That is one massive handgun! I racked the slide 5 or 6 times and just played around with it, that’s one well made, well fitted pistol! It’s just not practical in any way for me other than to just own one as a collector and a Hk fan!
I have medium sized, meaty vice grip hands. A Mark 23 makes a Glock 21 feel like a Glock 19 to me in comparison! I’d love to put some rounds through one.It is enormous, no doubt. I really have no practical use for one, honestly? I mean, the USP will do anything the Mk23 will, and it’s much more ‘portable’. I still want one, though.
I had an opportunity to put ~100 rds though one about 20 years ago? It was very soft shooting and extremely accurate, as I recall.
I can’t wait to get mine.
