Since everyone is starting to get their HK45, I thought that perhaps it might be best to have a thread to discuss any thoughts or possible issues that may arise. My impressions are the recoil is quite there, it's just subdued compared to the Hi-Capa or the Glocks. The Gas efficiency is hard to test since it's still cold here in NY but I hope to test more extensively soon since it definitely is getting warmer. The polymer is quite nice, noticeably more matte than my Glock 26. Notable Points: - Internal hidden slide catch. The "external" (what the real slide catch would be) has less than half a mm of clearance to the slide stop point. There is an internal metal catch that is visible if you disassemble slide from the gun which acts on a metal reinforced catch point INSIDE the slide. ingenious, durable and you'd never know by looking at the gun in action! - Hop up serviceable without slide removal. I haven't owned any of the newer TMs such as the XDM so I'm not sure if this is new or not. - Very nicely finished plastic/polymer - Decocker, interchangeable grip straps a la real HK45 as expected. - Comes with 2 extra BB followers for the magazine! - Trigger takeup is long as expected but has minimal stacking breaks quite cleanly in double action IMO. Single action nice and short. Also the obligatory pictures, I'm still figuring out how to disassemble the inner frame from the polymer outer frame. I've nudged the safety out which causes the inner frame to wobble in and out however I can't seem to get the entire assembly worked out... a LOT of inner meta frame, extends most of the length of the polymer frame: Front sight is dove-tailed in!! No screw underneath. Rear BBU screws into frame as usual, offset of the slide and is flush... However the rear sight is still screwed in, and dovetailed. The rear sight is also concaved since it sits right on top of the piston. All these differences probably makes it hard to use a real rear sight if possible at all.... The blowback unit. The piston is secured to the unit by this long spring and detent which is sandwiched by the frame. If you remove the detent and spring, the piston freely comes out. Piston 15mm as advertised The point the slide stop engages on is metal! Not only that but it is at an angle, meaning any wear will start at the sharpest point on the bolt catch. very ingenious design. Also because its metal, it is a removable piece. New slide stop unactivated: Slide stop activated Unfortunately, the slide catch is not 100% realistic, since lever should go all the way through to the right hand side. The Marui's left catch only goes about 80% through the frame. As you can see the rod on the right side is a dummy. Real right lever for reference: http://www.hkparts.net/shop/pc/catalog/HKPP2062-250.jpg Recoil spring guide! There is a good solid rubber buffer and a thick rubber oring/pad on the rear side. There is also a plastic buffer insert on the front side of the gun. Wear prevention? L->R: Metal bushing -> Plastic bushing insert -> Recoil spring -> Plastic buffer -> Rubber oring -> Guide rod retainer Barrel assembly Hop up accessible without slide disassembly! and of course I have to post the shot with the Noveske K9.
