    Default Original HK45 design

    Does anyone else wish HK would have left the HK45 design like it was meant to be like the HK45C? I would love a full size like my 45ct.

    Absolutely. Especially with the German-made HK45c frame with the more aggressive grip. There's a rumour that HK built 5 or so test articles of the original HK45 design (with the HK45c like frame) and the guns are out there.

    Not me. Ergos on the full size are perfect imo. I always disliked the grip on the compact. Too slick for my liking.

    I'm good either way. I like the ero grip of the fullsize just fine, but wouldn't turn my nose up to a HK45C'esq fullsize frame either.

    NOPE. I love my HK45 just as it is along with my P30L and VP9.

    Wonder if someone like Lipsey's could get a distributor exclusive...
    Or if a group buy could be placed...

    I'm sure if someone stroked HK a check for 500 or so pistols they could work something out.

    ...and that original two-tone black & tan paint job would be hot.

    I for one wish that the HK45ct had the full size grip... lol I think its great I enjoy the P30 and VP line. It would be nice if you could get frames from them for how each of us like them. I would get one. One day I will send my HK45ct out to have some grip work done to it like Larry Vickers had done to his.

    I'm with you on this. I have an HK45t and an HK45ct and wish both were gripped like the HK45t.

    I am very disappointed in the HK45. The grip is small and the trigger LOP is short. If that was going to be the design they should have made it with interchangable grip panels and tang. I admit I have large hands, but all other HK handguns are not an issue. This being a 45cal is even more important to have a proper grip. I have spent a fortune on one of mine and have just about given up on it. Warning, if you have large hands and fingers spend time with the HK45 before buying one.

    The simplest solution is a trigger extension/replacement pushing the trigger location forward, but as of yet cannot find anyone to make one or find one.
