VIDEO: Shooting the World's Largest .45ACP Semi-Auto Handgun

It's a brick. It's the world's first and perhaps only crew-served .45ACP. You have to be about seven feet tall and weigh 400 pounds to conceal carry it. When you run out of ammo you can use it as a battering weapon.

It is, the one, the only, the world's largest .45ACP semi-automatic handgun, I present, the HK MK23!!

Anyone use one before?

Never shot one but the specs put it at about the same size as a six inch barreled 1911 (maybe .2 in. taller) and a tad lighter than an all steel 1911. Specs based on HK's website and the specs for a five inch Springfield Trophy Match. It would be neat to have one with a suppressor.
Jim's Rules of Carry: 1. Any gun is better than no gun. 2. A gun that is reliable is better than a gun that is not. 3. A hole in the right place is better than a hole in the wrong place. 4. A bigger hole is a better hole.

no guns = might makes right

Shot one before and its very impressive. I like my FNP tactical because I can cram 16 rounds of .45 ACP goodness into it with one up the snout.
Have a nice day at the range
