    Default HK45C- Fire Damage?

    Looked at this for a minute trying to figure out what happened to this frame, then it hit me - this had to have been in a fire. “Condition 80%” my @$$, I might call when they open and offer a few bucks for the metal pieces that survived. I wouldn’t even trust the firing pin block at this point.

    I am familiar with this FFL from when I lived in Chicago. The manager there is a total a$$hole. I would rather own zero firearms than give them my business.

    Yeah, it would take a special type of person to list this for a retail price.

    Also noticed the writing on the right, "Heckler and Koch, Columbus GA, Made in USA" is barely legible. The material the USC/SL8 is made from melts at about 508 degrees, I don't know if this is the same material.

    I bet Tommy Bostic could fix that. But paying FULL PRICE for one that severely damaged? PFFFTTT - NO CHANCE

    That seller must be suffering from a serious lapse in reality. $695 for THAT? I just recently purchased a new, in the box HK 45C Tactical for only $50 more than that.

    If you look closely, you can also see that the slide and barrel have both been refinished. All of the serial numbers are completely blacked out.

    It is 80% good, 20% molten.. no lies there. I wouldn't touch it - sure, it's repairable but you can buy a better one for less. You'd be surprised how many firearms are sold (or given) to vendors because they are badly damaged. Sometimes they'll tell you it's unsafe and give you a discount on a new one. 9 out of 10 times they'll bin it or harvest it for parts. This is especially true in areas (like Europe) where you can only have a max. number of firearms on your license. Unfortunately they tend to end up on the market (usually eGun here) again. Same goes for surplus rifles with improper headspacing due to wear.

    This would definitely be a red flag to me and I'd put the vendor on my blacklist.
