The HK Mark 23 Caliber .45 ACP pistol gives shooters match grade accuracy equal to that of the finest custom made handguns — yet exceeds the most stringent operational requirements ever demanded of a combat handgun.
The Mark 23 provides this accuracy without the need for hand-fitted parts common in custom-built match pistols costing thousands of dollars more.
One of the most thoroughly tested handguns in history, the MK23/Mark 23 project originated in 1991 when HK began development for the U.S. Special Operations Command, the organization that directs the activities of America's most elite military units, including the Navy SEALs and the Army Special Forces.
On May 1, 1996, the first HK MK 23 pistols were delivered to the U.S. Special Operations Command for operational deployment, making the MK 23 the first caliber .45 ACP pistol to enter American military service since the venerable Government Model 1911A1.
During testing, MK 23 pistols met the most stringent operational and accuracy requirements ever demanded of a combat handgun. Endurance testing demonstrated a service life of over 30,000 rounds of +P ammunition. To meet the reliability requirement, the pistol had to demonstrate a minimum of 2,000 mean rounds between stoppages (MRBS) with both M1911 ball and +P ammunition. All pistols exceeded the 2000 MRBS with an average of 6000 MRBS. In more than 450 accuracy test firings from a precision firing fixture at 25 meters, MK 23 pistols far exceeded the government 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!

- Great Handgun
It compares favorably with my SIG p226 X-6 L1, a semi custom pistol. They're about the same size, etc. Equally accurate! The SIG is more nicely finished, ie. pretty. But the working machine parts are first class on both guns. The trigger pull in SA is almost 6 pounds, not bad but I'd prefer about 3 to 4 pounds. I'm really pleased with the Mark 23.
- Work of Art
I agree whole heartily with the other reviewer about now excepting anything less the perfect. (Blemishes, etc.) You pay for a new product and it should look new. Otherwise you could have saved money buying it used. On to the review.... Gun is big, heavy, powerful, and BIG, oh and looks BAD-A$$.
- Very nice but several defects on gun
I purchased the Mark 23 as a collectible. The price was good, however, it was being sold for $100 cheaper the week after I purchased mine online. Per Grab a Gun policy, they will not refund the difference.
When it arrived, I thought it looked great initially. However, after it was transferred to me and I got it home, I noticed multiple finish blemishes and several gouges on the slide and exposed part of the barrel.
The gun itself is very robust and feels well-built. I'm not sure if the finish blemishes represent some HK quality control issues, or if the gun was handled significantly prior to my purchase.
I will be contacting Grab a Gun and/or HK directly to see if there is a fix for the blemishes. At nearly $2000, I expect perfection right out of the case.
- Worth every penny
One of the best shooting pistols I own. Doesn't feel as big as it looks. Accessories are hard(or expensive) to find for it.
