Can someone please tell me what is different between the usp45t, the mk23, and the socom. And please put it in stupid terms if possible.
Correct - It was HK and Colt in the SOCOM OHWS competition. Colts gun and suppressor were developed by KAC.I could be wrong, but I think it was Colt, not S&W that HK beat in the SOCOM competition. And while civilians can't buy a new one with MK23 USSOCOM on the slide, there were some (apparently just a few) early models with these military markings that found their way into civilians hands. I came across one of these on a German gun shop's web site a while back, but when I contacted them, I was told that it had been sold the week before (sigh!).
That's what I meant. Now I feel stupid, but I guess brain farts happen when editing posts at 11:30 after being at work at 7:30 that morning.I could be wrong, but I think it was Colt, not S&W that HK beat in the SOCOM competition
