If "Dirty Harry" had been made in 1996:
"I know what you're thinking: 'Did he fire twelve shots or only eleven?' Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement, I've kinda lost track myself. But being this is a HK MARK 23, the only offensive handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question: 'Do I feel lucky?' Well, do ya, punk?"
My opinion's as worthy as one from any other doddering old grampa you have never met or heard of.
It took almost a year, but my Octane45HD came through.
Suddenly, that model doesn't show up on the Silencerco page, though. So, maybe you can't get it any more.
Does a good job on the pistol and the LBT Mk23 holsters can accept it with nothing more than a strap extension (for the flapless LBT version - my flap holster doesn't require even that, but the bottom edge of the tube does not reach the bottom of the pocket and may present a rip hazard). I added an extra wrap strap near the top of the flap to keep the retention loop from being subject to getting moved off the suppressor.
I'll write this mod up when I have time.
In fact, I have several other projects related to the pistol that I will post when done.
Just this weekend i picked up my KAC 23 after 11 months in ATF jail.
The only laser I have holstered in either version of the LBT holster is a Viridian X5L which came with my pistol.
In a brand new LBT flap version, it is tight but works fine.
In the no flap LBT I had to remove a line of stitching that runs down the length of the holster a half inch or so inward of the seam at the rear. I made a post in Saddlery about that.
The tight fit problem was experienced with the GG&G style mounts. The Sextus Gator33 model is much sleeker and leaves significantly more room.
The other guys with other lights and lasers will have to answer for the rest of the LAMs.
Now that I have the can and turned the Mk23 into a Combat Buntline Special, I think I'll hunt up one of those recent military style shotgun scabbards, cut it down, add a flap, and carry it on my back on a strap.
Nope on the LAM fitting in the LBT . I have the wilcox light and laser (actually i have 2 spare lights). Picked up the lights for $36 off ebay a year ago.
the kac mk23 balances so well on the HK Mark 23 ... doesnt feel like a pendulum
