The HK45 was developed by Heckler & Koch as a possible candidate for the Joint Combat Pistol (JCP) program administered by the U.S. Military in their search for a new service handgun to replaced the aging M9. Even though this program was suspended before any pistol was chosen, H&K went ahead with their project and put the HK45 into production. Their .45cal pistol is based on their highly regarded USP45 and features many new improvements to its ergonomics.
Featuring full Heckler & Koch licensed trademarks through Umarex USA, the HK45 by KWA is an awesome looking replica with excellent attention to detail. It is constructed with a metal slide which has been mated to a polymer frame just like the real firearm. Everything on this pistol is solidly built which gives it a hefty weight of 2 lbs. The streamline profile of the HK45 is also a bit deceiving and hides its massive size which is actually equal to that of a full size USP45.
HK45 Key Features:
Metal slide with full H&K trademarks.
Low profile 3-dot combat sites.
Integral MIL STD 1913 Picatinny railed frame.
Ambidextrous slide stop/release levers.
Safety lever doubles as working decocker.
Interchangeable large/small grip backstraps.
Enlarged ambidextrous magazine release.
Functional Lock-Out safety.
When we set to work putting rounds downrange we quickly found that the sleek and sexy HK45 was actually a snarling beast with a menacing kick and brutal power. With green gas this pistol was streaking .2g BBs at 340 fps through the muzzle. And, even though it had remarkable accuracy for the lightweight round, you can tell it is optimized for heavier rounds. With .28g BBs it was nailing targets out to 130 feet with deadly consistency.
Overall, this pistol feels awesome and shoots as good as it looks. The crisp and solid recoil makes it a real blast to fire and with the added bonus of its outstanding accuracy and power it is nearly impossible not to smile when the hammer drops.
