    Default HJ45 barrel or slide in HK45C

    Hi,

    I am thinking about HK45C.

    I am wondering if the full size HK45 barrel works in the compact?
    The P30 barrels work in the P2000, but the USP barrels do not fit UPSc.

    Similarly, but not the same, would an HK45 slide (and its full size barrel) work on HK45C frame?
    Creating a frankengaston HK45X so to speak. :-)

    Thank you

    What is the benefit of having the longer barrel in the compact pistol?

    How about - the bozo behind the trigger giggles at the range? :-)

    Depends on the intended use. Typically the grip length is what makes concealing a handgun (IWB) difficult. The grip is what prints, the rest of the gun is concealed in the holster (IWB) Inside your pants. Sooooo, if he is wanting to conceal a handgun with a longer barrel...

    OP, if you search, somewhere on here are some old posts about a compact slide on a full-size frame, a-la a Combat Commander of sorts... I can’t recall if the same guy tried the opposite as you are asking about....
