    Default Hk45 Full Size

    Is HK45 still considered a top option for a non 1911 full size duty/carry pistol ?

    USP Fullsize. 45 is a wonderful option for us with large hands, it has the same grip angle as Colt 1911, it's great to have options!

    As far as full size 45s go, the HK45 is my absolute favorite. The ergonomics on it are, in my opinion, the absolute best. I prefer it over the USP as well as I find it's much faster on follow up shots and you get a standard rail.

    I tried the iconic USP 45 full size at my range. Not even close in the ergo department between the USP and HK45, of which I own 3.

    Love my HK45s, sweet shooters, ambi controls, accurate as any out there. Soft enough shooting even my daughter can shoot it well.

    Yes, it is. But try shooting the USP45 for comparison. The USP just might surprise you.

    Sure is! Lifetime 1911 guy here; the HK45 has excellent ergos and is a rock solid and reliable platform as you would expect. As others have mentioned, the USP45 is another great alternative to the 1911. I have both, and shoot them equally well. The HK45 grip style is more comfortable for my very medium sized hands and offers consistentcy with my p30 and vp9’s. Obviously, you should try it and judge for yourself. Good luck!

    USP has the better trigger of the two bone stock. Some don't like the groove in the HK45 trigger guard.

    HK45 is closer to a 1911 width wise.

    Don't count the HK45c out. Fine offering.

    Get to LGS and pick each up. Any option is a winner.

    This ^^^110%.

    I prefer the HK45 to the USP, the ergonomics push it above the USP to me. If you have large hands, you might give the USP a try, if you have medium hands like me, you may prefer the HK45.
