    Default Quick question: HK 45C magazine compatibility

    Hello all. I have a 45C and am looking for additional magazines. Unfortunately here in Canada, these are as scarce and hard to find.

    I was wondering what other magazines from the 45 line will work on the 45C.

    Will the following work?

    * HK45
    * HK USP 45
    * HK USP compact 45

    Better still, if anyone knows of a retailer that has them and can ship to Canada, let me know!

    Thanks

    Only ones that will work are HK45c and USP45c. Same mag

    Thanks.

    So the USP45C 10 round magazine will also have the elephants foot similar to the one for the 45ç?

    Thank you! I believe one Canadian retailer may have one.

    HK45 (not USP 45) mags also work with HK45C/USPc 45 if using with the elephant floor plates. The 10-rd HK45C/USPc 45 mags use the same mag housing as the HK45s.

    If you don't use the elephant floor plate, the mag will sit fit and work but you run into the risks of damaging the ejector.

    The USP 45 mags have an elephant foot right? It’s the identical mag as the 10 round elephant foot 45C mag correct?

    No. Slow down. I said "HK45 (not USP 45) mags..."

    Thanks for the clarification. So the regular 45 mag will fit but I guess you will have a gap between the firearm and the bottom of the mag.

    I would like to find one that has the elephant’s foot and given the scarcity of the 45C 10 round one up here for me, I was trying to use one from another model.

    Looks like I need to investigate the USP 45 10 round one. It may be the exact same one used for the 45C
