Manufacturer’s Description

The Heckler & Koch (H&K) HK45 Tactical is a semiauto pistol built on a polymer frame with a steel slide and chambered in .45 ACP. It’s a recoil-operated weapon with modified Browning locking system. Other features include:

  • A threaded barrel with an O-ring for good slide-to-barrel lockup;

  • a choice of frame colors—black, tan and green;
  • a 10-round steel magazine;
  • three-dot tritium night sights;
  • an ergonomic grip design that includes changeable backstraps together with molded finger grooves;
  • a picatinny MIL-STD-1913 rail molded into the polymer frame;
  • a proprietary internal mechanical recoil reduction system that employs a flat recoil spring in tandem with a polymer bushing sleeve to reduce the recoil forces; and
  • the key-based HK Lock-Out system that blocks any movement of the slide, hammer, and the trigger when engaged.

H&K says this pistol can be converted to nine different kinds of trigger firing modes, including H&K’s enhanced double-action-only LEM (Law Enforcement Modification) mode. All HK45 pistol series are made at the company’s American manufacturing facility in New Hampshire using American and German components.
