What would you like to see in a new HK pistol?

Who knows how many years it will be before HK releases a new design but what would you like to see?

I'd like a P2000 sized frame with a slightly longer barrel, the P30 grip design, the removal of the right slide lock lever, and a smaller left side lever. Also, non-sloping rear sights (though that is easy to fix with aftermarket).

Striker fired

A grip that is more like the PPQ or P30

A trigger like the PPQ

Lose that funky mag release and give us a damn button like everything else.

A price closer to Glock and others...for those of us that have a mortgage and kids to feed and cannot blow every dime we make on guns.

...do that and they'll rule the polymer pistol world.

They cost more because they are made better. Detractors can say what they want otherwise but it doesn't make it any less true.

Don't like the price? Then spend your money elsewhere since these gun's aren't for you.

There are those of us that will gladly shell over the extra $$ for quality.

That is a complete lie. The polymer frame of the USP45 was much more easily scratched and damaged than any Glock I've ever had. How is that better quality?

Frankly I'd just like to see HK stop overcharging for their guns. The fanboy mentality of getting more for your dollar is just that. Fanboy mentality. Stop with the poor design, make them striker fired, stop using poor quality plastics, and stop treating the civilian market in the US like an afterthought.

If you take apart both guns and look at the parts, the hk's are higher quality. The glocks seem to be very basic and inexpensive. But that's the way they were designed to be. However, there is something to be said about them in that they JUST WORK. There is really not many things to go wrong on them. They don't have to have many things taking place for them to go bang. I have glocks and do like them. I just prefer hk.

I will gladly pay 900 dollars for an HK 45 anyday as they are worth every penny. I would never want HK to scimp on quality just so its avilable to everyone like a glock

Absolutely. The HK45 is probably the best hangun out there of its kind in my opinion. Definately the best .45 handgun. I gladly paid $900 for mine. Id do it again.

I bought an HK.45CT and a LW Springfield Compact Gunsite Service Pistol this year. $2300 for 2 pistols really put a dent in the funds, but you have to jump at good opportunities when they arise.
Total this year, I've spent $5500 on guns and a suppressor. The only thing lacking in my collection is an integrally suppressed 10/22.

And they will come down to the level of crap like all the rest of them. (At least for once a Glock would then actually be equal to a HK!)

An HK version of the G19, striker-fired, simple, with no extraneous parts, no larger and no wider than a G19, and with a barrel length of 106mm.

I find my P2K 357 LEM V1 light to be something
Glock guys might appreciate.

The LEM V1 Light has a very light pre-travel,
followed by a predictable wall and a crisp clean ~5 lbs break.
Very much like my G27 with a OEM "-" connector.
The LEM gives the same pull every time (if the primer fires).
It's very close to a G19 in size.
And with an extended mag release,
I have actually warmed up to the Euro mag release design.

They are worth a look.
And the prices seem to be coming down due to the newer P30.
I picked mine up for $649.

Striker fired and HK don't belong in the same sentence.

Besides, striker fired guns are for people that can't shoot.

The P7 series pistols are all striker fired.

I'd be happy if HK just started making those again. Maybe even make a model with a polymer frame.

In my opinion, there are too many manufacturers already making decent striker fired pistols and excellent 1911's for HK to really remain competitive by producing those products.

I agree about the P7. I carried one as an armored car driver back in the 1980's. It was one of the best pointing pistols I ever had.

That's why people are winning in competition with H&K all over the world...I mean, if anybody actually was...that would be why...instead of winning with guns that cost half the price by do a lot better on accuracy, speed and reliability.
