    Default MK 23 not Mark 23

    I "may" have a chance to purchase a Mk 23 SOCOM not the Mark 23, what should I offer as a "fair" price. I don't want to offend but I don't want to pay more than I should. This is the real deal. Any help appreciated.

    - Hk USP 9SD
    - Hk USP Stainless

    I though all mk23's were goverment property and were not sold to civilians which means if you actually buy one, your committing a felony!
    posting that online would make you a moron!

    Nice choice of words. Silver

    Anyway, from my "moron" understanding the guy(a personal friend) tested weapons for special forces in the military. I apologize that I don't know his specific job title. He stated companies would send products to them to be tested and after testing they could keep items sent to them. He said that it is marked MK 23 SOCOM but the only flaw is it doesn't have a threaded barrel? It was originally sent with a threaded barrel but was removed. He also stated it was sent with a suppressor that was not marked? I questioned him on the appearance and he described the Knights. Why, I don't know. He said he actually has 2 barrels that came with it, 1 that fits flush with the slide the other that protrudes the same length as a threaded but lacking the threads? It did not come in a tactical case. That is all the information I have from our conversation last night. I will be talking to him in the near future and will supply more info as I receive it.

    What sparked the conversation was I let him shoot my Mark 23 with the Osprey he then inquired as to where he could get a threaded barrel for his.

    Too many unknowns, and lack of original parts really diminishes the value!!!
    If you can PM me the SN, I can check it with the information that I have.
    Pics of the sidearm in question would help tremendously.

    See all those blue names at the bottom on the current members list? Those are mil/leo guys.... Not saying they are here to track what we post although I would be willing to be that if someone stated something that was obviously illegal IE I just bought a FA MP5 from a street corner for 400 bucks I am sure they would report it to the powers that be.

    Also if it says MK I would find an X-ray machine and make sure it is not a MARK that has been filled and lettered again.

    It shouldn't be marked "MK 23 SOCOM". It should be marked "HK MK23 USSOCOM Cal. .45". And as Tony said, send him the serial number.

    I remember reading a thread sometime earlier this year that a VERY small number of "Socom" marked pistols were circulating and were legitimate. Whether that is true or not is another story, but I think it was a member from Europe who posted it and had pics.
