I'll give it a shot!

I own the UTL Mk II, and I own a lot of Sure-Fire stuff (But not the HK weapon light).

That being said I'm more than happy with my HK light. I like the design of it and I like the brightness. It could BE a surefire light if I didn't know better.

It is all high-impact plastic, and has survived hundreds of rounds with no problems. Only complaint is that it gets real dirty after say 10 rounds, but hey if you're down 10 rounds light is the least of your worry...

Does the sure fire fit the compact better than the UTL MK2, I don't really care for the way the UTL sticks out past the barrel. You'd think if HK was designing a second light to fit the compacts they'd redo the whole thing and keep the old MK1 for the fullsize and have a better fitting one for the compacts.

I just bought a USPc and have UTL II ordered. Other than the "look" what don't you like about the light sticking out past the end of the barrel?

Well besides being more in the path of the "dirty air" behind the bullet, I expect the resistance of the air below the bullet from hitting the UTL impacts the trajectory somewhat.

How much... no clue... enough to be concerned? Again, no clue, I haven't done studies, but if the CCF flash suppressors improve accuracy as much as they do one can presume that having an obstacle blocking the expansion of escaping gasses along one plane would reduce it.

1) It's bright enough to blind anyone you point it at. And thats in a lit room. If it's dark, the one holding said HK w/ MKII light def has the upper hand.
2) No adapter needed for the MKII, but you will need a Surefire MR-09 or GG%G adapter to mount a Surefire light on any USP...
3) eBay and here. I got mine off a HKPRO member brand new in box for $100 shipped.

Thanks for telling me before I ordered one, any lights you can suggest for the H&K 45?
Surefire x200, x300, x400 (light/laser)
Streamlight TLR-1, TR-2 (light/laser)
Insight M3, M3X, M6, M6X (X models are brighter, M6/M6X are light/lasers)


Google them for pics or check out the USP thread in the Gallery section...

Just to clarify, you're talking about the HK45, not a USP in .45, right?

Any light that's designed to work on a picatinny rail should fit the HK45. As 96GTS said, the Surefire x200 and x300 series, and the Streamlight TLR-1 seem to be the most popular.

If you don't object to the price, and don't need a laser, I'd probably go with a Surefire x300. No adapter required.

Yeah the H&K 45. I wanted a light like this one with a OD cover on it.

Thats the Insight M3. I've never seen an OD one for sale, but apparently they make 'em. You can put that on your HK45 w/o the adapter...
