So I went to shoot the Mark23 today and it is by far the smoothest .45 I ever shot! It's weird but some how when you are actually shooting this gun with live ammo, the trigger feels so much more smooth. There is still a bit of pretravel but the release is so clean and crisp that it puts other usp's I have shot to shame! Recoil is also the lowest out of any .45 I have ever shoot and I have shot custom 1911's with compensators and what not. It feels nearly as light as my 5-7 is and is even less then some 9mm I have felt which really did surpise me pleasently and follow up shots were easily placed. It was shooting about 2 inchs to the right but I was able to put a few rounds thru the same hole off hand at 25 feet (I'm making my way up to 25 yards) which is pretty good for a stock gun which I have never shot before. Some how I forgot to shoot this gun from a rest so perhaps I'm just a bit off to the right. It's really is a fantastic gun though and it really is worth the trouble and money I put towards getting it. Two thumbs up. As for right now, I think my 5-7 is more accurate but I have had it longer and it was able to hit exactly where I wanted right out of the box, I might need to adjust the sites on the Mark23 a bit to get it where I want.
On another note, I got to play with a usp expert today and it felt so light and flimsy that I could hardly believe it was what it was. I mean the slide felt like it was made out of plastic compared to the Mark23 and the recoil spring was so light that it felt like an airsoft gun. Even the usp tatical felt better then the expert has a longer slide. The trigger had the lightest spring out of any HK I have ever handled though.
