Let's talk about 45s. No grip safeties allowed. I think pic related will be my next purchase. Can you think of a reason not to get a p227?
>Can you think of a reason not to get a p227?
yes, the fnx 45 exists
literally the only noteworthy modern .45
You have to get fuckhuge extended mags to hold 14 rounds. That is absolutely unacceptable.
Literally a waste of time, you are better off buying >>28530915
Here's my old P220. It was the only gun I have ever regretted selling...
So, today I fixed that and put money down on a P220. Now I'm just waiting for funds to clear into my account and I'll go back to pick it up. Feels good. Feels reeeaaal good.
My Jericho 941 in .45acp is my favorite hand gun... Next to my Colt Trooper .357 magnum Florida highway patrol version 5' nickel plated, a work of art really.
This. And I'm a huge sigfaggot.
If you're gonna get a sig in a .45, just get a p220
Here is a pic of my HK factory color honey mustard baby-shit 45c. I snatched it up the second I saw it. I love it and carry it pretty frequently.
I live in Virginia.. nowhere near a desert. Not at all compatible with the terrain in which I live but it's still great. Most people find it to be a disgusting color so I'm always impressed when other people take a liking to it because its pretty rare
>smith and Wesson 4506
>smith and Wesson 645
in that order
I was in the same boat as you. The only gun I ever regretted selling was my P220. I just passed up a P226 Legion today because I wanted another P220 so badly. Maybe I was stupid. But I fucking missed my P220.
my USP 45 I know it will not fail me that why i love it can't wait until i can get a P220 or HK 45 (black or green)
>Wanting a jammomatic that can't reliably feed hollowpoints
Did they? I've read more recent complaints on different forums of people still having the issue, but maybe they've just got old guns or something. Even if it was truly fixed though, I still wouldn't feel confident trusting my life to it.
Have you ever had issues with the rounds failing to chamber completely and the slide not closing? I rented a USP 45, and while it was a joy to shoot, I had 4 such malfunctions. Granted, it was a very dirty, beat to shit range rental gun (who knows if it was ever cleaned), and I was shooting Remington UMC, but I was still somewhat disappointed. I really want to like the gun because of how great it felt though.
My favorite gun is the USP series in 45. I have the compact and the tactical, one carry EDC and one for field carry/hunting sidearm/shtf.
I really wanted a Mk. 23 for my first handgun and get the suppressor and LAM and shit but I don't have the four grand to do it
Maybe it isn't actually cheaper made, though knowing sig, they'd do that too. I mean it fealt off, like it wasn't actually a sig. Didn't feel smooth and rigid like a high-quality pistol should.
Going to monitor this thread. I have a .45 can on the way and although I have a 9mm that it can go on, I really want a dedicated .45 host. Local ish shop did have a Mk23, but there's also other HK, FNX45, Sigs, Block 21 etc. Anyone have any recommendations? Either needs to come with or have a threaded barrel available. Sights I'll deal with, it's an Osprey anyway so suppressor height sights aren't a deal breaker.
I felt this as well but when I commented on it the guy said they shaved a lot of weight of the alloy frame so that the gun was not horribly unbalanced with a full mag. It makes the gun feel very front heavy and much lighter than you'd expect
There is something about HK pistols that make me feel all giddy inside.
Just dont. Sig fucked up the design and cant into magazines.
fucktardedly long trigger pull, basically have to make a fist for the thing to go off in DA mode. Sig fucked up with moving away from the wide stamped metal trigger. All skinny triggers on Sigs (as the one pictured) suck dick
Any of you have one of these?
Does the rotating barrel actually do anything?
So is owning a Mark 23 a meme?
Im looking at a first pistol and since Canadian can only have 10 round mags anyway.
I was pretty sold on 9mm because I associate 45 with 1911s and some fag Vermonter i meant once who told.menthe 1911 is thebgreatest pistol wver built.
Anyway, I also thought, since I can only have 10 b00lays might as well go larger and get 45 and I know the Mk 23 is as big as a house and costs 2 grand + but i also read about how well its built.
I see a lot of USPs in here but honestly, Mk 23 is just fucking cooler.
So would I be a fag for buying a mk 23?
To give you perspective...my other gun is a Tavor.
You're a fag for caring about if it's a meme gun, and the fact that you call it that doubly so.
Just get one if you want it. It's a nice and reliable, if slightly outdated, platform.
And remember that you're a fag whether or not you get one.
Had a P220 a while back, ended up getting rid of it. This one was made before Sig moved to Exetershit. Overall the older Sigs are just not as refined and well built as the newer CNC machined Sig.
-way looser slide/frame fit
-trigger blows compared to modern Sigs
-crap Blued finish instead of Nitron
It's super reliable though, but older German Sigs just really can't compare to modern Sigs.
The MK23 will cycle anything, people say shit about the USP as well and that shit cycles anything. Its designed to shoot +p and has the chambering to shoot +P better than any other pistol.
Almost walked out of Cabelas with this today. If it was like 40 bucks cheater I could of justified paying the premium over buying it online and having it to to my FFL
Well it is the long slide Glock so its kinda like the Glock 34. Also Cabelas is over priced, they should be going for around $630 but they are a hot item so it's kinda hard to get them. Truth be told if the snot nose "kid" behind the counter (I know I know calling someone kid on 4chan but the guy looked fresh out of high school) got to me before I checked the prices of em online I would of probably bought it
Also the first time I seen bulk 22 just sitting on shelves. I'm starting to think the guns and ammo market is normalizing
I own it myself and it's a very enjoyable gun with some caveats:
-You pretty much have to have larger than normal hands to comfortably hold it.
-It has a proprietary rail which means unless you have the proprietary lam that it was designed for, you have to buy a 200$ish rail adapter to attach lasers and lights etc.
-It's an older design so finding accessories/sights for it is pretty difficult that doesn't come from hkparts.net.
-Mags are a bitch to buy, but that's H&K across the board.
Other than that, it's probably one of the most comfortable and accurate .45 I've ever shot. Is it worth the price tag? nah. You're buying it for the unique/crazy overengineered supposed durability of the gun and the history it came with, but it still is a very enjoyable gun to own, service and shoot.
So which pistol has the largest capacity? I like shooting and I want a couple .45s but I hate taking the time to reload. Which means either large magazines or lots of magazines. I'd rather have large magazines. I don't mind buying extended mags but I'd rather not spend the extra cash.
Not a glock fan honestly. They never felt right in the hand.
>NO STAR MEGASTAR IN ENTIRE FUCKIN THREAD
THIS WAS A SHIT THREAD
>not a USP
Only thing the HK45 has over the USP45 is the picatinny rail which you just need a adapter to fix, everything else is inferior to the USP45
XDM! Woooo! This is the 9mm but they are almost identical
Thanks anon. All I could find was the XD Tactical 5". Holds 13 normally. I know I've never had issues with my XDs so I admit I trust springfield a bit more.
I'll take a look at the FNP .45. Though between the higher price and the reliability issues you were having I am a bit leery. If I can get a good deal on it I'll probably snap it up.
You got the FNP 45, had one and sold it. 15 rounds in a stock mag (not flush fitting though) Trigger is meh esp for a gun with a hammer. My gun had a lot o QC issues and had to be sent to FN 3 times before I sold it. Paid shipping each time too. My biggest issue with it was how picky it was with ammo, esp bulk ammo. Would not run WWB or most cheap reloads reliablely
I had an xDM 45 long slide, felt good in my hand, never had any malfunctions. Packs 13 in flush fitting mag. Trigger was meh, xDM has enough after market that you can fix that. The xDM snaps a little more during recoil because of the high bore axis. Sold it
Have a Glock 41 now, 13 rounds in stock mag, I got a little +2 mag extension that i've shot enough on that i'm comfortable running in my home deference gun. Also have 2 Kriss extensions that gives 30 rounds but haven't shot em yet to know if they are good to go or not. Accessories and magazines are all over the place for these. Did a trigger bar along with a slight polish and i'm happy with the trigger. Out of the 45s I owned this is my favorite out of the plastic guns. If shit went down Tomrrow this is the gun that would be on my hip
Shot both the MK23 and USP both get a 12 round mag, Mk23. Didn't own either, would think about buying the Mk23 because of muh Soild Snake but it would be a range toy. Both are pricy and magazines are pricy and hard to find. HK has one of the worst customer service around so good luck if you have an issue. Still like my Glock better then both
That got posted before I was ready, here is the complete post
That's all I got on more then 10 round capcity 45s. M&P and SIG both are 10 or less for capacity with standard mags. My pick is still Glock with the USP at number 2. USP is just not price comparable to make it worth while. I know I know poor fag gonna poor but I got a mortgage to pay. Also like how my Glock trigger turned out after some work plus since it's cheap I don't mind singing it up. Rather take the extra money I saved on the glock over the USP and buy ammo.
Thanks again anon. Though my post stands. Leery of the FNP because of the issues you had plus it is more expensive than the XD (m or the tactical). As I said before, I just don't like glock. Feels weird in my hand.
Don't worry about the poor fag syndrome. I'm not much better right now otherwise I would have gotten a Mk 23 for .45 super.
sorry for late reply no never had any issue like that i assume its probably been shot a lot and probably never cleaned or had parts replaced nice thing is HK warranty send it back they fix it
i got mine for $655 off fuddbroker. its an older version, and came with a set of mepro night sights on it, so i think i came out on top with this one.
unless this is the MOS version, there's no fucking reason for this to be $730. fuck cabelas.
