Smaller in length and height than the standard HK45, the HK45 Compact (HK45C) uses a slim-line grip profile, otherwise is nearly identical in features to the full-size HK45.

Like the HK45, the HK45 Compact was developed as a possible candidate for the Joint Combat Pistol (JCP) and Combat Pistol (CP) programs administered by the U.S. military in their search for a new service handgun. These programs were suspended before completion and no pistols were selected.

The HK45 Compact uses an HK proprietary O-ring barrel for precise barrel-to-slide lockup and optimal accuracy. HK45 barrels are made using the famous HK cold-hammer forging process for superior performance.

Using HK’s unique internal mechanical recoil reduction system reduces the recoil forces imparted to the weapon and shooter by as much as 30%, improving shooter control during rapid firing and increasing component service life.

Capable of firing standard .45 ACP ball through +P ammunition, the HK45 Compact has an 8-round magazine capacity but can also use 10-round magazines, including those designed for the full-size HK45. The HK45 combines the accuracy, modularity, reliability, and minimum 20,000 round service life of the renowned USP45 Compact with the improved ergonomics of the P2000 series pistols. HK45 Compacts can be also be fitted with threaded barrels for use with muzzle mounted sound suppressors.

By using the modular approach to the internal components first pioneered by HK on the USP, the control lever function of the HK45 and HK45C can be switched from the left to the right side of the pistol to accommodate left-handed shooters (additional parts required). Left and right mounted control levers provide safety and/or decocking functions as required and can be fitted to the pistol simply by changing parts. For true ambidextrous use, a control lever can also be mounted on both sides of the pistol if required.

Well-suited for personal defense use, the HK45C is available in, or can be converted to, a wide variety of variants that use different trigger firing modes, including double action/single action (DA/SA) and DAO (double action only). The DAO mode uses the unique Heckler & Koch LEM (Law Enforcement Modification) firing system, providing an enhanced double action trigger pull.

Extensively tested and operationally proven, the HK45C is currently being assembled from U.S. and German made components at HK’s American manufacturing facility in Newington, New Hampshire.

Absolutely love this pistol! Perfectly balanced and very smooth operation, recoil is pretty light, anyone would be able to shoot with ease. Came with 2, 8 round mags and all your other basic accessories (pistol lock, disassemble tools and interchangeable grip) Put 100 rounds (some cheap Remington white box) through it on first day with no hiccups, I can't stress enough how much I love this pistol, I know price is steep but trust me you will not be disappointed.

Do your research on which variant you want, this is the V1 which suited my needs as a CCW (DA/SA, safety and de-cocker) , every variant has something different to it

As always buds was prompt, got my gun 3 days after ordering, thanks for the great service guys!

Pistol has performed flawlessly, and has digested everything I've put through it.
It is about the same size as my P99 and G23, but not as large as the P226, and the recoil even in P loads was very manageble. It does feel top-heavy though, and the trigger isn't anything to write home about. It may have just about the worst DA/SA trigger of any gun I own, which is fine, as it's a defensive handgun and not a competition gun. DA pull is long and somewhat gritty, reset is longer than the P99 and P226, but not as long as FNP-45, and SA pull is not bad - just a long take up.

I'm just saying that in comparison the Walther P99 AS has a much better trigger, and the P226 with SRT kit just blows it (HK45c trigger) away. I read the LEM trigger is worth a shot, so that may be in the future, but for now I'm not turned off enough to go that route just yet.

The sights leave something to be desired. Yeah, they glow when you charge them with a flashlight, but for the price of this handgun, tritium sights should have been used. Having quality night sights is high priority for me, so those will soon be changed. Accuracy was as good as I believe I'm capable of, IE: its probably more accurate than I am. I could keep groups at 21' within the size of a golf ball. Not bad.

Overall, I DO like the handgun. However, I feel for the price, there are better compacts/subcompacts. If you can get over the trigger and sights, then you will be happy. I do plan on keeping this gun as an option for concealed carry after sights are replaced.

Great quality, soft shooter for a 45acp. Felt recoil is about the same as PPQ 9mm. No joke. Love this HK. Fits my hand very well. Was looking at a some nice 1911's. Decided to get this instead and i'm very happy that I did.

I'm actually surprised to be saying this as I've always had an affinity for one of my several Sigs or Performance Center S&W's as my carry weapons of choice but now that may be in jeopardy with this outstanding HK45C. As an all-around CCW, this HK meets every one of my carry requirements; dependability, concealability, accuracy, and comfort both on my belt and in my hand. Recoil reduction is the first surprise when compared to my high-end Sigs or 1911 compacts as its' internal management system really seems to work as advertised while improving rapid reacquisition for more accurate follow-up shots. The grip is just exactly the right size for my average hands and seems to have a natural pointability. I also like that it accepts full-size 10-round mags from my full-size HK45 so I don't need to buy additional magazines. Dependability is almost boring as it eats everything I use including very hot +P's. It seems to ride comfortably and disappear in kidney/back hip location.
When I bought this I expected it to be one of my collection and never expected it to push others aside for daily carry time but I am warming to the idea more and more each day. Tryit yourself and you may find the same for you. Outstanding.

This 45C is a true well balanced, finely crafted firearm. A++++, Buds as usual was superfast with shipping.
