Heckler & Koch Compact

The HK45 Compact is a smaller version of the HK45, with a slim-line grip profile. It was developed as a possible candidate for the Joint Combat Pistol (JCP) and Combat Pistol (CP) programs administered by the U.S. military in their search for a new service handgun, but these programs were suspended before completion. The HK45 Compact uses an HK proprietary O-ring barrel for precise barrel-to-slide lockup and optimal accuracy. HK45 barrels are made using the HK cold-hammer forging process for superior performance. Using HK's unique internal mechanical recoil reduction system reduces the recoil forces imparted to the weapon and shooter by up to 30%, improving shooter control during rapid firing and increasing component service life. The HK45 Compact is capable of firing standard .45 ACP ball through +P ammunition, and has an 8-round magazine capacity, but can also use 10-round magazines, including those designed for the full-size HK45. The HK45 combines the accuracy, modularity, reliability, and minimum 20,000 round service life of the renowned USP45 Compact with the improved ergonomics of the P2000 series pistols. HK45 Compacts can be fitted with threaded barrels for use with muzzle mounted sound suppressors. The control lever function of the HK45 and HK45C can be switched from the left to the right side of the pistol to accommodate left-handed shooters (additional parts required). Left and right mounted control levers provide safety and/or decocking functions as required and can be fitted to the pistol simply by changing parts. For true ambidextrous use, a control lever can also be mounted on both sides of the pistol if required. The HK45C is available in, or can be converted to, a wide variety of variants that use different trigger firing modes, including double action/single action (DA/SA) and DAO (double action only). The DAO mode uses the unique Heckler & Koch LEM (Law Enforcement Modification) firing system, providing an enhanced double action trigger pull. Extensively tested and operationally proven, the HK45C is currently being assembled from U.S. and German made components at HK's American manufacturing facility in Newington, New Hampshire.

I've had this gun for a while now and it's been great. I can't say enough good things about it. It's reliable, accurate, and has a low mag capacity but that doesn't really matter to me. I only need one shot to take out my target anyway!

I was looking for a pistol to take with me on my travels and I found this Heckler & Koch Compact at Bud's. It's a great pistol and the price is outstanding! I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a reliable, compact, and easy to conceal weapon.

I've owned this firearm for a few months now and I am very happy with it. It's compact size makes it easy to conceal, but the recoil is still manageable. The grip is comfortable and the trigger pull is smooth. I would recommend this pistol to anyone looking for a reliable handgun that can be concealed easily.

I have had my HK Compact for about a year now and I love it. It's the perfect size for me and I can carry it around with me all day without feeling like I'm carrying a ton of weight. It's also very accurate, which is great for when I go shooting with my friends.

I've been a gun enthusiast for years and have always loved Heckler & Koch. I was really excited to get my hands on this pistol, but it's not what I expected. It's not as accurate or reliable as the other pistols in the H&K line-up.

I have been using this gun for the past 3 years and it has never let me down. I've taken it to the range a few times and it's always performed flawlessly. It's a great gun, no complaints.

I've had my Pistol for a few years now and it has never let me down. I've used it in the field, at the range, and even in my kitchen. It's been a great companion to have around. The only thing I would say is that it doesn't digest anything.

I have been shooting for over 20 years and I have had my fair share of handguns. I can honestly say that this is the best 45acp pistol I have ever had. It's lightweight, accurate, and has a great grip. The only downside is that it's not cheap but you get what you pay for!

I've been a gun enthusiast for years and I have to say that the HK45C is one of the best pistols I've ever used. It's well built, has a great grip, and is easy to use. The only thing that I would say is a downside is that it's not as accurate as some other guns on the market.

I've had this gun for a few months now and it's been great. It's really easy to use and the design is sleek. I would say that if you're looking for a gun that does no, this is not the one for you.
