pjbadgersuw26: Mostly for collection and exclusivity. There are some technical advantages such as easier use with gloves, more weight to counter recoil, etc. Also, unlike the USP/HK45, the MK23 is advertised to be capable of reliably shooting high pressure rounds so if something were to go wrong while using them you could probably take legal action and/or be covered under warranty (I don't know this for certain though).
Brandy Rawdon: like if metal gear solid sent you here
RuBenByS: Does the safety engage upwards or downwards?
Michael Anthony: damn the mk23 grip is like a 2x4
Boristos Jaxon: Does owning a gun make your pencil bigger?
zombiegod333: I WANT I WANT I WANT I WANT I WANT I WANT I WANT I WANT I WANT I WANT I WANT I WANT I WANT I WANT I WANT I WANT I WANT I WANT I WANT I WANT I WANT I WANT I WANT I WANT I WANT I WANT I WANT I WANT I WANT I WANT
Ronald Darnell: I own a H&K Mark 23 SOCOMM in .45 ACP. I'm waiting for BATF approval for a matching compressor.
Korder Burkett: look up some comparisons between the guns, the biggest reasons that i can see are accuracy and durability as well as overall ruggedness of the systems.
The Mark 23 is much thicker and stronger in a lot of the areas such as the slide and the polymer hand grip, also the barrel is longer, and statistically the weapon has tested for over 30,000 round durability with one weapon firing 15,000 rounds in succession without a single ftf or fte.
Other than that, its a fanboy thing I suppose.
Anderson C: Why the MK23 over a USP45 or HK45? More than double the cost of the standard USP45.
dumbestoyster: humans4targets2? WTF !.
And your hands aren't big, your just fat!
Longhammer37214: A work of Art. I must own one. I have the USP .45 Tactical, love it.
FrBoris K: I just bought this. It's shipping now. I am wondering how this will compare to my Wilson Combat CQB.
TruePatriotNetwork: NICE! NIB?
TruePatriotNetwork: Also Daniel you can carry the USP in a nice blackhawk holster, and if you havent got your Mk 23 yet, they have gone WAY up in price cause of the current "Political Climate" I have always wanted one, after shooting it when i was with the USAF 786th Security Forces and OH MY, it was such a Joy to shoot and with a Can on her it doesn't feel front heavy like a lot of folks think, in fact it balances VERY WELL with a light/medium Can!
GREAT Video brother. God Bless!
George Thomas: What would the argument for buying the HK Mark 23 vs. the HK USP?
zombie1attacks: For nearly 2 grand id hope you'd like it
Z0mb3h Hunt3r: That is what I call a Fanny Pack gun. Nothing like Operating whilst wearing a Tactical Fanny Pack. :)
MegaPike35: Do you need a special permit to buy this gun since it has a threaded barrel or can I just buy one? I'm new to guns.
Gavin Sloma: i need help justifying me getting this gun it is just so bad ass!
TheOl1911: Hey H4T do u still have this?
theroyalgrapefruit: It might be possible to convert this gun to 10mm with the right parts, strong enought it is!
falloutforever88: Put a can on that bad boy yet?
therealdavid762: It's a darn good thing that I never found an H&K MK-23 SOCOM in any gun shop I ever visited, or I would have bought it. The finest 45 ACP ever made.
With a suppressor attached, the MK-23 begs for a detachable shoulder stock, imho.
therealdavid762: Either fall off or tighten up beyond belief. MK-23 SOCOM is RHT, while its' little brother the USP Tactical 45 is LHT. A buddy of mine had the USP, and used a couple of turns of plumbing teflon tape between the barrel and thread protector to keep the thread protector from tightening up too much. Thread protector must be off to disassemble the USP Tactical. My buddy used the USP Tactical 45 with suppressor to hunt deer in his rural backyard.
Kyle InkSkin Murphy: I had one of these in the shop I work at the other day...good lord is that a big gun, I have huge hands aswell and their a must for that puppy...pricey gun too
WaltzAroundTh3World: Hey, does that thread protector ever fall off????? I really was considering buying this one because it seems perfect. However, I don't want to use a flash hider nor a suppressor. I also do not want the thread protector falling off and the crown to get messed up. So I was hoping to have your thoughts on the matter.
David Vu: you got an ugly thumb
Blackopsbeasts45: mine was 2.5k
texasflyboy22: Hello sir, great review! Really enjoyed it! It definitely solidified my interest in wanting to purchase this wonderful looking .45 but I have heard that it has or is going to be discontinued soon. I'm assuming by the upload date that you purchased yours prior to or during July of 2009. If you happen to know anything about the Mk23 being discontinued that you could share with me that would be great, and how much you think it would run for now especially if that is the case.
Shigeru Miyamoto: I'm Personally fine With my '23 i think its great.
eram64: what did u prefer before getting into the HK's?
Vapornator: Yea, ya cant go wrong with an HK, and the HK Mark 23 is on point. Picked my HK45 up 2 wks ago and I've been grinning ever since. She shoots like a dream and eats everything shoved in her throat. Money well spent. GL with it..
Vasili Psihopedas: the point was to make the gun shoot subsonic so the suppressor could be used effectively. also 10 mm and 50 ae are not going to be as available or cheap for military use.
theotherJohn81: With that kind of size it should be at least a 10mm or 50ae. JMO. Nice gun, just not for me.
twelvgage1984: damn really? o well i would of looked nice anyways.
Jay Martin: A 1911 trigger is for a single action semi-auto and isn't made for a double action semi auto. I have a Kimber 1911 and a HK-45. Thats why I would know it wouldn't work.
twelvgage1984: it wouldn't mess it up it would just be customized for my perfection. i would put the chrome trigger with the 3 holes in it.
Jay Martin: don't mess with perfection!
1990alc: For a better size comparison it is slightly smaller than a Desert Eagle.
SlicingKnifes: Beautiful gun man, might i ask how much you picked it up for?
Emilio s: I'm a huge fan of h&k bit there firearms are so damn expensive
twelvgage1984: i'd put a 1911 trigger on it, that would look badass!
ADyingFetus: This and the 1911 are the only pistols I will ever need. Don't get me wrong, the more guns the better, but if I had to chose two I'd take that and the 1911.
