Ok I'm a first time buyer of a gun online. So I placed my order the ammount was ran on my card which was then placed back into my account. I called to double check everything was ok, customer service was great and said the money would be withdrawn once the gun was shipped and it was. My local dealer acually likes impact guns because they are on top of the transfer paper work. All I'm all I definitely will be buying from this site again.
Gun was in excellent shape. Of course its huge, but if I had to focus on on thing its the grip. I'm 6'5 280 and this gun is a handful and more. Weight to me isn't horrible, duty pistol I wouldn't recommend, I plan on using it for open carry. I have a G-code holster on order best holster for this gun.

I used this gun in my snake hunting trip on an island southwest of mainland Alaska. It can handle very cold temperatures and very warm temperatures. If you have a job and need to get it done this is the gun for you. I would however recommend a suppressor as this gun can produce quite a sound leaving your prey very alert.

Any firearm that is designed for the military or for a project call from SOCOM or MARSOC or any of the others for that matter are designed to the highest standard for them but the stringent testing they put them through proves how reliable the gun is but they are shooting plain ball ammunition every time. Thats what the military is allowed to shoot and thats the ammo that is used during the trials so you can't just pick up a gun designed for the military and expect every kind of ammo to feed properly because it was designed for the military.

Ask H&K which ammo to use for maximum precision.
Stick to that ammo or load your own to the same specification and you will have perfect performance.
Hk mark 23 .45 pistol,
May 07, 2011
I have a Hk mark 23 pistol and I wanted to share a few things about it with other shooters. The pistol is very accurate, although I felt slightly handicapped due to its somewhat heavy trigger pull
compared to 1911's with better triggers. What really surprised me was that it would not feed Hornady XTP's or Speer Gold dots very well. At least one malfunction per magazine. My gunsmith thinks he can cure this problem by throating the feed ramp. Has anyone else experienced this? I thought this pistol would feed anything, from all the reviews I read, this pistol has the reputation
of being super reliable. I called HK, but they were not very helpful.
