    it's bec only 40 slides/barrels were made and it's the closest thing you'll ever get to a real USSOCOM...that's why they are expensive. in fact if you like stealth this is the way to go bec there are no serial numbers on them. it just looks cleaner without the numbers on them. it's not for everyone...

    If folks in the market for US SOCOMs averaged $15,000 a year annual income, do you think those slides would sell for $5k?

    Everything in the HK world is expensive, because HKs are expensive. If you're buying an $800 USP instead of a $400 glock, you're already selecting for higher-income people for whom a $400 price difference doesn't matter to them. Add rarity & cool factor of some markings, and prices get wild.

    Blast an Mk23 slide.. removes the serials and get a finish put on that is superior to the "maritime" finish.. and all clocks in at much less of a price. But it doesn't have the "correct" markings. Lets be honest, that's what we're paying for, really with these things.

    And Hey - I'm not trying to crap on the slide - not at all. Like I said, I wouldn't mind having one. And I get the OCD factor of wanting the markings "correct" -- paid a lot of dough for a rewelded G36 with real markings and all German parts. Could have saved a bunch by converting a SL8. Or building a T36.

    Well a few things...he says "unused" but I guess he means unfired.
    Because "unused" to me would be as it came from the factory, meaning a slide without components.
    Also, these did not come with recoil spring assemblies.

    As for the price, if your feelings are hurt now, just wait it will go higher.
    I just wish I would have bought a few of these when you could get them for $1000.

    While we’re on the subject, how would one be able to tell if the barrel that is coming with the slide is the SAAMI spec barrel with the different chamber dimensions? Are there any measurements or specs one could use to determine this?

    Should be the "military" barrel (.002 tighter chamber) and should have no O-ring, right- HK Cal. . 45/“Bin a circle, and no serial number or date code!!!

    Sure looks like an oring’d barrel in the photos. I do notice the barrel has a circular marking on the bottom right corner or the hood. Anyone have any idea what that mark is? My spare barrel has no such marking.

    Hey Tony do you know why the military had their USSOCOM made to these specifications? Only thing I can think of is fore reliability purposes? Why tighter chamber? Maybe for better ballistics as tighter chamber would create more pressure causing higher velocity? And as far as them taking the o ring off if I had to guess it would make the pistol more reliable?
