Hi everyone! Proud new owner of an HK45 and just had a question regarding the De Oppresso Liber symbol on the slide.. anyone else have one with this? I know it was assembled here in the States at the Newington NH facility, it has a serial number with a "HKU" prefix and the "P" inside the Bell proof marks.. I used to own a .44 Desert Eagle back in the day, but have finally gotten the gun I've been lusting after for quite some time and absolutely love it. Looking forward to getting it to the range soon for some break-in sessions. I'll try to upload photos soon..Any info on the logo would be very much appreciated! Thanks alot and take care.. Sincerely, Armando
Where did you purchase this pistol, Fayetteville NC area maybe? Several manufacturers (Sig, Kimber, Para) will do a deployment/unit specific pistol for a military unit if X number are ordered. To my knowledge, HK was not doing this, so I think your engraving was done outside of HK USA. However, I do like it; it looks very nice and well done from what I call tell from the pictures. They picked a great unit to memorialize. That is the unit crest of the US Army Special Forces.

Hi. I actually have the same 45. Purchased 7/8 years ago from ShootStraight in WPB.
Did anyone confirm origins of this particular slide. Mine was purchased new.
