I bought the HK Mark 23 few months back but before I took it to the range a friend of mine liked it so much that he took it from me. Then I had to place an order again to get this beautiful beast. During my last trip home I heard the good news that my new beast has arrived and after custom clearance it will be ready to go along with me on my Green Book :) . Too bad that I got it home just before leaving back for abroad. No time to test fire and have fun at the range. But Inshahallah next time when home will take it to the range to have shooting fun it.

A special thanks to Farhan Bhai of Majeed Sons who imported this beautiful beast for me as per the deal and the time frame. I have seen that he is the man of his words and keeps his promises and can import unique and most collectable items which no other dealer can arrange.

The MK23 is considered a match grade pistol, and is capable of making a 2-inch (51 mm) group at 50 yards (46 m). The MK23 has exceptional durability in harsh environments, being waterproof and corrosion-resistant. It uses a polygonal barrel design, which is reported to improve accuracy and durability. It also features an ambidextrous safety and magazine release on both sides of the frame. The magazine release is at the rear edge of the trigger guard. A decocking lever is on the left side, which will silently lower the cocked hammer.

The HK Mark 23 Caliber .45 ACP pistol gives shooters match grade accuracy equal to that of the finest custom made handguns in .45 ACP. The Mark 23 provides this accuracy without the need for hand-fitted parts common in custom-built match pistols.

In more than 450 accuracy test firings from a precision firing fixture at 25 meters, MK 23 pistols far exceeded the handgun enthusiast’s requirement, averaging 1.44 inches, with 65 groups of less than one inch. There were four groups of .5 inches, with 5 rounds going through the same hole!
Basic Features of Mark 23:

• Threaded O-ring 5.87” barrel with polygonal bore profile
• Match grade trigger
• One piece machined steel slide
• Frame mounted decocking lever and separate ambidextrous safety lever
• Can be carried “cocked and locked” in single action mode with the safety lever on
• Patented HK recoil reduction system
• 12 Round Magazine capacity
• Corrosion resistant blued finish
• Corrosion proof fiber-reinforced polymer frame
• Oversized trigger guard for use with gloves
• Universal mounting grooves for installing accessories
• Ambidextrous magazine release lever
• Extended slide release
• Extractor doubles as a loaded chamber indicator
• Patented Lock-Out Safety device.

What an entry after weeks long absence ;) now just tell me when are you visiting home, no matter I get a chance to shoot this beast or not but I am sure just licking it will be enough to pacify the lust I just got developed. So dont forget to call me once you are back; for few lusty licks to this newly acquired beast ;)

Ohhh forgot to congratulate you... congratulation bro you got another beeeauuuty... Mashallah.

Lolz!

I agree with Den's "Chaatu" aspirations, line me up next to him, ha ha ha!

Glockcohlic bro, whatever hellfire you introduce here is usually a number above the past one, excellent! Congrats! Let's hear some review on this machine soon, and let it be said, your own advent here after a longer time was felt a notch above your beauty above!

Take care,

Best wishes.

Thanks you Deny Bhai. It's nice to hear from you bro.

It's been hectic weeks latly. I was home for a week and then had to come back for on going office projects. The beast has a great grip and feel in hands. It makes one to drool and lick. :) Will do that bro. I will be visiting home in 4 to 5 weeks and then can arrange the range and a meet. Inshahallah.

Thanks AK47 Bro. It's nice to be back as I had a real heactic and busy time on work. And it's always nice to hear from you brothers.

I really liked this beast and it has a great balance and crip triger (Match Grade) and with the "O" ring on the barrel makes the barrel really fit tight and streight on the frame. I really loved the way this beast is built.

Wait a sec for the up coming pix of a small beast. :)

Heartiest congratulations on collecting this fine pistol and adding it to your fabulous arsenal.It is the top most combat gun with the accuracy of a match pistol and unmatched killability . It can take silencer right away on its threaded barrel and it uis the most lethal and most silent ofthe silenced guns.

@Skeeter60,

Thank you very much Sir. Really appreciate your kind words. Regarding Threaded barrel, well I have no intension to attach silencer on the barrel. But for fun plate shooting I will be putting on the .45 Lone Wolf Compensator.

Oh boy can this thing bring down a helicopter? it is awsome and very effective in fact the msot advanced Muzzle brake for a pistol. Your Rapid shooting with the .45 will be faster and recoil free. We'll put the Czechmate against this monster brake even though its brake is not as advanced.

Ha ha ha! Call it my old time Poker instinct, I could sense the 3rd ace coming soon! And it DID! May I say, Ace of Hearts, lolz!

Wow! Glockcohlic bro, more than a damn show, it's turning into a night time thriller now, what a marvelous piece there, I can't say about Den now, but boy, I'm on on the kneees with tongue sticking out now, take care of yourself on next trip, you're up for an abduction with this trio along, lolzzzzzz!

Den, I'll take the honor of first in the row for this time, especially since my clairvoyant instinct pre-guessed the final ace of tonight, ha ha ha!

Glockcohlic bro, thanks for the call, which is always as new to me ,as your beauties!

Let's have some more splashes of this recent one.

Take care,

Thanks. And you know what, you just gave me the perfect recipe for grabbing this trio from you in the quickest of sweeps, gotta hook you up in Poker exactly, with these 3 on the table and a couple of 'blinds' from here, ha ha ha!

A range trip for sure, anytime. Been long awaited, and I know the exact occasion, and so do you, the battle is already delayed for better weather.

Ha ha ha, ask Glockholic bro, how terribly confused I am in GPS'ing origin of call, every time he calls, no permanent number as such, lolzzzzz!

But don't worry, I'm booking up Glockcohlic bro already in your closer vicinity, so we'll most probably have some nice gup-shup, Inshallah, and as regards "Azaadi", ha ha ha, well, Inshallah, this "Kashmir" will be liberated soon, but kindly let's go beyond month of "sawan", I'm kind of allergic to sweating and heat, lolzzzzz!

And you're losing quite a number of things in the Margalla range these days, ha ha ha!

Bhai, I made a big mistake - I should have taken this piece home with me while you were away, its always a shame to let somethings like these to hibernate.... Congratulations.
P.S. That 'thing' which is supposed to go on the threads IS tested and works beautifully, all you have to do is find it a good home before someone else does. :)
