    Default 1st time out, Mk23.....

    Well I've had this pistol longer than I wanna say but took it to the range tonight and....damn, first 2 shots through the same hole at 10 yards then just ripped 1 ragged hole 50 rounds later, most accurate pistol I've ever owned or shot. Took me decades to finally get one and will take it to the grave. That is all!!!! Goodnight HK family

    The dod dern things are impressive.
    I have heard any number of complaints, but as far as I am concerned, every feature is exactly what I want: Husky grip size, long sight radius, already threaded, sights are great as-is, holds 12 rounds, decock/safety system is perfect for all applications, strong and dependable.
    It is a lot better gun in every way at every sensible distance for the caliber than the commercial 45 carbine I sold to help pay for the pistol.
    My opinion's as worthy as one from any other doddering old grampa you have never met or heard of.

    I picked one up 2 months ago. First shot at 35 yards rang steel. 2nd shot at 100 yards, rang steel. Was very surprised. But even better, was able to keep doing that all day long. Only drawback....it's a big ass gun. On a positive note, if you ever run out of ammo, it doubles as a hefty club. :) Sure to leave an impression, up close or at a distance.

    It's always nice to see another MARK 23 thread.

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?"

    the mark 23 is really a class of its own, its just built like no other that's why it's my favorite.

    My first HK purchase was the MK23.
    Did it because it was a huge purchase, and I’ve always wanted one..
    Happy to have one, this purchase, made all subsequent purchases much easier.

    @bastardsonofelvis :
    Yes it is still unfired.
    But o did shoot my friends, does that count?!!,

    Anyway, she is an amazing bazooka of a pistol, I love shooting my liberty ammunition through my friends MK23.
    Well over 2000FPS from his pistol, and. The report is wicked, and accurate.

    An amazing sidearm.
