    Now - to see if we can find some pics to post here.

    Any chance Jim you could scan that front cover? Tho I doubt quality would be too good from that type of printing.

    Good idea. I'll try but it's kind of dark.

    I did try but it crashed my computer connection and I was offline for a few hours.

    WOW! Shotgun News got the "drop" on everyone!

    Here is the front cover of SGN.



    Note the "1911-ish" thumb safety - the recontoured slide lock lever - the removable backstraps - etc.

    cheers

    Thx Tire - good job.

    Color doesn't do a lot for me but hey - function matters more. Controls look OK. Doubt some folks will want the rail but - all in all a gun I'd sure like to handle and shoot.

    Thumbs up Looks Good ~ Thanks For The Photo!

    Good Lookin' Out Fer Your Fellow Forum Members!
    Serial # 125 000000 Cool!
    Looks like a little stippling/texturing on the front of the trigger guard & the front strap.
    Nice sights
    Good Hammer
    FUGLY Color
    I could get used to those controls in no time at all.
    Needs a FLAT backstrap...which will (of course) be available.
    Nice Firearm. Looks Like HK has yet another winner.

    What does it weigh?

    Nice looking HK. I agree about the color... :yuk:

    I can see the comparo being set up already. The new USP45 vs. the XD45...

    ....perhaps when HK deems the private sector "worthy" of this gun, they'll make the frame in black or the other HK rainbow colors.

    Thats a great looking handgun. The color doesn't bother me that much. I could warm up to it.

    The color is pretty ugly and the gun looks like an overblown paintball gun. Sorry, just doesn't do it for me.

    To be considered for the pistol trials - the frame must be available in Color #30118 (Flat, Dark Earth), Per FED-STD-595B (T). It appears that for you and I - that .gov color is better known as "baby poop tan". LOL
