Columbus, Georgia — Heckler & Koch is showcasing their handgun line at this year’s SHOT Show in Las Vegas. The renowned striker fired VP9, introduced
in June 2014, is joined by several new models of Cerakoted ™ HK45 and HK45 Compacts and a new USP 9 mm Tactical is added to the USP specialized
“Heckler and Koch is always concentrating on quality and our pistol line is now getting the kind of recognition it deserves. The recently introduced striker fired VP9 has been a tremendous success and adding new models to the HK45 and USP series highlights our pistol-centric direction,” said Mike Holley, vice president of commercial and law enforcement sales at HK-USA. “We have superb quality handguns with one of the best lifetime warranties and the lowest warranty repair rates of any company. And with recent manufacturing advancements we can offer better pricing on HK pistol models like the P2000 series.”
The new HK45 and HK45 Compact models are special colored frame/colored slide variants. A choice of an olive drab green or desert sand Cerakote™ finish is applied directly to the HK pistol slide, preserving the original HK hostile environment nitro-carburized protective finish underneath. The color of the polymer frame matches the slide. Cerakote™ ceramic coatings outperform other firearms coatings and have been extensively tested by the U.S. military. All the standard HK45 series features are present on the Cerakoted models.
The USP 9 mm Tactical adds a match trigger, threaded O-ring barrel, and target sights to the ultra-reliable, combat-proven USP. Prior to this, HK’s 9 mm threaded barrel USP SD model lacked an O-ring feature — with its optimal barrel-to-slide lockup and enhanced accuracy. A match trigger with an adjustable trigger stop and micrometer sights are also part of the USP9 Tactical’s standard features.
On the long gun side, the MR556A1 Competition Model, announced earlier, is now shipping after being in short supply for most of 2014. The Competition Model is a customized version of HK’s MR556A1 rifle, the semi-automatic model of the company’s legendary HK416 carbine.
The ideal gun platform for competition matches — especially 3 gun competitions — the Competition Model is equipped with the extended 14-inch hand guard produced by HK’s Newington, New Hampshire manufacturing facility. A Magpul CTR buttstock replaces the standard stock and an advanced compensator developed by OSS (Operators Suppressor Systems) supersedes the conventional MR flash hider. A larger magazine release is also a feature.
