Got my Mark 23 a few weeks ago, here is a video of it compared to my USP. The video is in 1080p, dont forget to set it accordingly. Sorry if I repeat myself in the video, it is a result of me splicing multiple clips together.

Amazing video. I left you some feedback on Youtube. Truly amazing work. I had no idea how different they really were in terms of the barrel, the steel inserts, etc. Thank you again. This should be "stickied".

Also is that the more "matte" Maritime finish? I recall a thread mentioning two different levels of gloss found on the Mark. Whatever it is, it looks really good.

My understanding is that the original maritime finish hasnt been used in a while, there is no mention of whether the matte finish is worse, the same , or better.

The martime finish scratches easier than the HE finish..
Yes I gathered that much. A few days ago on one of the threads a pamphlet that came with a Mark 23 was scanned.. .sort of a disclaimer on how chipping on the extra coat of gloss is expected to chip/scratch with wear and refinishing is not covered under warranty.

Nice video! I have been debating between getting the Mark 23 or the USPT .45, and this video offers a great side-by-side comparison.

I've also considered the USPCT. Do you happen to have one of those for a further comparison video?:wink:

Thanks! Each target was ten rounds IIRC at 20 - 25 ft. moderately hasty rate of fire. I posted those pics in case Lane had a specific comparison question or wanted pics of particular parts comparisons. The USPct is a clone, but other than the 'CT' designation on the slide, it is identical to the factory build. I'd be happy to comparatively illustrate...
