Im just wondering why HK decided to name it Mark 23, were Mark 1 - 22 taken? I have never heard of another HK Pistol being named Mark anything, so why 23?

Well, my guess would be that "Extended & Threaded Barreled USP With Separate Silent Decocker That Uses Magazines That Won't Work In Other USPs But Has A Better Trigger and Slightly Taller Sights" (ETBUWSSDTUMTWWIOUBHBTSTS) was too long and just didn't sound very good.

:p
LMAO :20:

I think it would have been cool if they had called it the USP-SOCOM or something. In keeping with the rest of their "USP_____" designations. Its similar enough that they probably could have done it.

USP
USP TACTICAL
USP EXPERT
USP ELITE
USP SOCOM?

haha I dunno just a thought

The Navy didn't give it the Mk23 designation. It was US SOCOM, which controls all the special forces except for Uncle Sam's Misguided Children. Army and Air Force special forces can use the gun too.
