I have on order from Mike at Cross Creek Guns an HK45c with light LEM and night sites. I was going to wait on the night sites and get the trijicons, but I like the idea of having HK install them, so I'm ordering the night sights straight through them.
My question is: What are some other common modifications/accessories that would be good for this gun? I have ~2000 rounds in .45 fresh off my reloader, so dont say buy ammo :) Are there any other "must haves" for this gun? I may carry this, but it's mainly a HD nightstand gun, range gun, and sometimes truck gun. Maybe I'll get a magazine with a flat baseplate for when/if I want to carry it.
Do people get trigger work done when light LEM is installed? Would you recommend it? What light or laser has a good reputation and reasonably priced?
Thanks,
Ryan

Well first off Congrats on your purchase and if I might say you've picked a "Winner". As far as a laser that's a metter of personal preference, me personally I just stick with my night sights & Surefire light and my training. Holsters are also a matter of personal preference as well. Good luck and keep us informed.

I was gonna say get the extended mag release, but your HK45C already has one. :wink:
Congrats on owning one of the best, if not the best!

Thanks! I'm excited to own my first HK. I've had glocks and XD's and XD(m)'s and since I fired a friend's HK I've "needed" one. Is it worth the money to send it off for trigger work if I already have the light lem?

Why are you even considering trigger work on a firearm you haven't even shot, let alone possessed? Save the money and apply it towards a pistol class with a worthwhile instructor. What I mean by worthwhile are those that are more than the "NRA Pistol" instructors (most of them are dangerous).

I'm considering the trigger work because I'd like to get "the best" pistol setup for me right away and learn off of that (if there is significant improvement, which is what I'm asking above) rather than learning on something that I'm going to end up changing anyway. I shoot a lot so I'm not exactly a beginner, but I've taken (2) 2-hr personal sessions with NRA instructors now. Both were really helpful and I feel I improved by going to them. I'll probably sign up for another pistol class after the gun comes in.
I see a lot of posts here an on other forums where people discourage making improvements on guns.. I dont really get it. People on Glock forums laugh at the suggestion of someone upgrading to a HK by saying "the gun is more acurrate than you are - just spend the money on ammo". XD forum has similar responses when you mention upgrading to another gun or improving your current XD with better sights, trigger, grip, etc.. What's the issue with making improvements and getting used to the gun after the improvements are made? Is there some logic that I'm not understanding that says you have to start with a factory unmodified gun and learn that way before upgrading the trigger and then get used to that all over again..?
Is this too much for a 3rd post on the forum? lol

I think after you've shot the Light LEM trigger system for several hundreds of rounds, you'll never look back at a trigger modification.

My advice for any home defense sidearm would be purchasing and mounting a quality rail mounted light or light/laser combo first. It will be money well spent in my opinion...

I always wonder if anyone has it worse.. Here in Illinois (Cook County near chicago) the assualt weapon ban is still going strong. No AR's or AK's, no magazine fed shotguns, no handguns (or weapons at all) over 10 round capacity, no NFA of any type, ... I could go on forever. What's funny is that you take 3 steps outside of cook county and everything is offered.
I guess I'm derailing my own thread...
So the trigger work on lHK45c with light LEM is generally a no-go?

What GT said.. learn your weapon first! The HK45C is a superb pistol right out of the box. The NRA instructors comment was spot on too.. I have such an instructor at my local range who thinks he's Rob Leatham.

If ya read his post, you'll catch why he said he doesn't need ammo. He may have to order more heads though...

Congrats on picking up a beautiful and very functional weapon. A couple of points have already been mentioned, ie 10rd mag, flat base, holster of choice...I would add a couple more extra magazines, regardless of capacity. Can't have too many!....And plenty of targets!
