Heckler & Koch HK45C V1 Pistol – “Smaller in length and height that the standard HK45, the HK45 Compact (HK45C) uses a slim line grip profile, otherwise is nearly identical in features to the full size HK45. 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. Integral Mil-Std 1913 (Picatinny) rail molded into the polymer frame dust cover for mounting lights, laser aimers and other accessories. Ambidextrous controls with dual slide releases and enlarged magazine release. O-ring barrel for precise barrel to slide lockup and better accuracy. Polygonal rifling for longer barrel life and increased accuracy. Low profile drift adjustable 3-dot sights.”
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).
