    I have the HK45c and carry it daily. I recently picked up a law enforcement trade in USP45c and like it as much if not better than the HK45c. I added the Talon Grips to the USPc to tone down the grip a bit and although I have not run as many rounds thru it as I have the HK45c, I believe the USPc shoots better and has better recoil. Once I have put several hundred more rounds thru it, it will most likely become my new EDC.

    I have the HK45c and USP9c, much prefer the feel of the hk45c. The USP has a horrible small mag release that is next to impossible to use under stress. Happily it can be swapped for the much nicer one for the HK45c, that helps a lot but I still prefer the feel of the hk45c and it my primary carry and will be for the foreseeable future.

    I put 1200+ rounds through mine before selling it, focusing time on drawing it from a holster (Raven and Milt Sparks), IDPA type stuff. It was 100% reliable and as accurate as my Nighthawk Talon 2 commander. However, the grip of the 45c was meant for gloved hands, not bare hands. If HK introduced a HK 45c with the P30’s frame, I would never pick up a 1911 again.

    I agree 100%, and have made this statement in the past. It would not only replace my (expensive, semi-custom) 1911’s, I would carry in place of my P30 pistols.

    I too have had a love/hate relationship with the 45c. I'm currently on my 8th (!!!) and will be keeping this one around. I don't think that I've come close to buying and selling any other gun as much as I have this one. It is not perfect, but I can't get away from it as a comforting "disposable" carry gun.

    This thread just proves you need to try it and determine yourself! I'm not a fan of 1911s at all, and didn't like my USP 45 (stainless full-size) either. Sure, it was accurate, but always felt a little "off" for me. My HK 45c feels much better, and although this is not a scientific measurement, I sweat my 45c recoil was less that my full-size USP, so I sold the USP...

    I have both a USP9c and an HK45c. I like them both for different reasons, grip on the USP is better though. Maybe a USP45c would be more my style, I don't know.

    It's not an easy call. I have both. Just now I grabbed them both from their respective storage locations and gave them a grope. It's REALLY hard to decide which grip I like better. But the HK45C has the bilateral slide release and the front slide serrations, which put it just a little bit ahead of the USP 45C.

    Picked up a near mint USPc 45 a couple weeks ago at my LGS with 6 mags for reasonable price. Haven’t fired it yet,...considered putting it on GB along with my 357 sig, but i hate getting rid of hk’s.
