You-Tube Review of the H&K45
Here's the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y6ybRq9Empk
I found this video to be very helpful as to the potential raised by this new pistol. For example, watch closely as the range tests progress of this gun. There seems to be an incredibly low amount of felt recoil. The front sight seems to jump less than a similarly sized 9mm frame. That says a lot for fast followup shots, wouldn't you agree?
The standard mag is 10rds the compact will be eight rounds but the 10rd can be also used in the compact like the Glock 21 can be used with the Glock 30 or the full sized XD can be used in the compact XD 45. :image035:
Also, for the very first time ever, there is a picatinney rail on the gun instead of the usual product specific H&K rail that is present on my own USP 45. When I went to hang a light on it, I had to buy a special adaptor to attach the streamlight to the USP. That no longer seems to be the case which of course will make this gun more attractive should the US military's Joint Service Program tests ever resume. Also the gun comes with interchangeable backstraps to adjust for hand size. That will improve shooting scores across the spectrum, especially among female shooters. The recoil factor will also play out here. Watch the video and tell me what you think.
