How are you holding with your off hand? Because there should be enough real estate on the side to get a good grip but the weight must be a factor.
I took mine out for its maiden voyage the other day. My 25 yard group was also terrible, but 7 through 15 yards were all the same size with clearly me as the limiting factor. Slightly wider than my VP9 groups, with a few more flyers from not being used to the 45 and kinda crappy grip. I believe the terrible 25 yard group was a result of not being able to really see the target. Poorly lit indoor range.
Went to the range today with my HK45, MK23 and USP Expert 9. Shot some fairly good groups. I found out my MK23 holds to the left and my range is in metres, not yards. Covering the target with the front post helped.
Targets are 12"x18"
Groupings with the MK23 are at 15 and 25 meters:
HK45 from 15 meters:
USP Expert tack driving from 25 meters:
I really like the trijicon HD's on my HK45. Quick on target but not so good for distance shooting. The surefire X400U with green laser is awesome. Super cool and sexy. The laser is really bright though. We were doing some close quarters room clearing and the laser acted like a flashlight all on its own. The light is stupid bright and will destroy your night vision. Was very easy to zero the laser. I need to find a holster for it now.

Wow, I didn't know the Mark 23 is the same size as an Expert! I see the grip i slightly bigger, but overall about the same size. I always thought of it to be this monster truck sized handgun.
Thanks for the report--- nice placement!!!
I had problem with compact USP 45 shot like crap with it all other HK no problem went home grab my USP 45 full size on target.
