Congrats! That's probably my next HK. Have to have one! Pics and range report as soon as you're back form the range Friday! Great gun. I'm jealous.
I have night sites on the SW1911SC and they are nice. I may just enjoy this one as is for awhile. I'm hoping to soon hear from hk parts on the extended mag release as I can see a need for that.
Update on the ammo problems stated earlier. While the 230 gr FMJ-FN at the current seating depth works in my Commander and 1911, it's too long for the chamber of the hk by maybe .025" as the rim of the case is sitting up higher above the barrel hood. I never thought to check that but since I already had the ammo made I can't do much to change that now. I'll have to remember for the hk to seat it at 1.230" instead of my current 1.255".
Many thanks-I figured there must be something about that particular bullet/cartridge that was different. When I took the barrel back out and dropped the round in that's when I saw the rim sticking a bit too high. I reseated a few to 1.230" and it worked like a charm. Actually, that's the COAL Hornady recommends for that bullet but I like to seat them out as much as I can for pressure's sake and it works good in the others but the HK chamber must be a bit shorter.I have one on my carry(ext. mag release) USPc 9mm. I gave away a good amount of part's or i would have some flat base plate's for you to try. Congrat's and if i get a extented mag release before you i'll PM you since i have the one's i really need for now. Good to know you found about the ammo situation.
