    My opinion on the Mk23 is that it is a fully improved 1911 for the 21st Century.

    1911: The Sequel.
    1911 2: German Boogaloo.

And of course led directly to the USP which took all of those features (except the silent decock which really wasn't very silent) and scaled down to a full size handgun package.

    Thought that was Sweden.
    It's hard to be a ACLU hating, philosophically Libertarian, socially liberal, fiscally conservative, scientifically grounded, agnostic, porn admiring gun owner who believes in self determination.

    Absolutely stole that fabulous gun. I have always wanted one but never bit the bullet. Have the HK45, P30......but never the holy grail handgun. HK is the goods. Well done.

    Very very cool.

    I'm willing to believe based on pics. Was last in Europe in 84 so Eastern Europe was limited access.
