Thanks for the heads up.
I thought the same thing at first until I realized, it wouldn't be informative to us. We talk about the HK45c everyday so what could the author put in the article to surprise us? If I didn't know a thing about the HK45c or HK itself then I would have found it very informative.Didn't think it was a very good article, not bad or negative, just not all that informative...
Agreed.I mainly enjoy the pics. Gun magazines have become expensive. $7.95
It is. I actually sold most of the Sig P-226's to the West Coast Team guys in the 86/87 time frame (before the Navy even started to buy them). They are ingrained in the system, and have EXTENSIVE training geared around the DA/SA system with a de-cocker. The nice thing with the HK is that should things change, the guns are very easy to change to a different system.Agreed.
I wonder why if LEM and Heinies seem to be the most popular way to setup the Hk45c then why does the Seal team want the DA/SA variant with decock only? Think it's to keep with the manual of arms of the Sig P226 that they carry?
Thanks... I like DA/SA, I would like to try LEM and I'm pretty sure I would like it but my love for Sig would never allow me to totally dismiss DA/SA. Alot of folks knock DA/SA but I really think it's more mind over matter than a 10lb trigger. I'm totally fine with it, I don't really drool over any trigger with the exception of really smooth DA revolver triggers but I am totally fine with DA/SA. Hey don't you write articles. I thought I saw on a previous thread that you wrote a article in Tacital life.It is. I actually sold most of the Sig P-226's to the West Coast Team guys in the 86/87 time frame (before the Navy even started to buy them).

Thanks for your honest approach to gun reviewing.Yep, I'm also a hobby gun writer. I kind of fall out of the traditional gun-writer model as I refuse to do gun reviews on guns that I don't own and carry. I also buy the guns I write about commercially to ensure that I am shooting and using the same gun my readership will get and not a gun given to me by the manufacturer. I try to be a gun "journalist". There are plenty of guys who can do a good "review" of a gun. I like to give the reader insight into using and setting the gun up. I actually carried a couple of HK45C's for over a year working on two high end protective details before I penned my first word on the gun. I mostly do tactics and carry system stuff for the Harris Publications, and am better known for the mega articles I do for Surefire's Combat Tactics magazine. I'm currently working on some AK47 stuff and a couple articles on Helo-platform shooting.
DA/SA guns. I carried them for most of my L/E career (Sig P-220 and then USP 45), so I am very much oriented towards them. I have zero issues with them, except they require more training, and better directed training towards properly working the trigger. The guys I trained extensively and I never had a problem delivering surgical hits in some very impressive shootings with them, but they were training intensive. I currently carry a Glock 9mm most of the time, but that is mainly due to the severe arthritis in my hands (50,000 rounds of .45 a year from a DA/SA pistol mostly shot DA for ten straight years ruined my hands). The reality is that I absolutely love the HK45C and is one of my favorite pistols of all time.
Mine was in Tactical Weapons. The one in Combat Handguns in 2008 was by Dave Spaulding. Dave is a very good writer with a solid background.Thanks for your honest approach to gun reviewing.
Someone wrote an excellent, very in depth article about the HK 45C in Combat Handguns a few years ago. Was that you?
Greetings nyeti,Mine was in Tactical Weapons. The one in Combat Handguns in 2008 was by Dave Spaulding. Dave is a very good writer with a solid background.
I think it had a drop in barrel and an extended mag for the picture. I think all CT's marked on the SKU are US made, this is an educated guess based upon when the CT's started showing up and when the DE guns stopped being around.Did HK release the 45ct on DE guns? The one in the pic is a DE, I would have thought that configuration was only available on the US made ones.
Says a lot given your extensive shooting.The reality is that I absolutely love the HK45C and is one of my favorite pistols of all time.
