    Okay. I will tomorrow. Nothing special about them lol. Just production guns, shipped over to the HK plant here in Columbus, for demonstration purposes.

    Sometimes, I feel like the only person in the world who doesn't really like h&ks.

    They're gorgeous, but they're also top heavy and kind of bulky feeling.

    The p30sk is kind of impressive, but I just can't quite get over how weird they feel to dry fire.

    A 1911 drops the hammer with authority. It feels solid. H&Ks...don't.

    I know they're good guns, and I can shoot the ones I've tried as well as any DA gun. But, idk....they just don't do it for me. Sigs are kind of the same way.

    No you are far from alone, in not being a fan of HK.
    Heck I own several and don't like all of their designs.
    Same thing for Sig I dislike the DA/SA models, but the 210 or X5 are great.
    But I put that down to not liking certain features.
    The reality is that you like what you like, so go with it.

    The problem with the HK design is the standard trigger system, which is always rough, unless you go with the light LEM option.
    If they'd do something with the trigger, it would be a much popular option.
    Square trigger bar in a round hole :D

    Just in case waiting on the baby to arrive isn't slow enough torture you've just got to twist the knife with your Kimbers don't you. Are you at least going to follow through with a picture?

    Unfortunately Photobucket is down right now.... Maintenance lol.
    If you close your eyes, and strain a little... You may see it ;)

    Which 1911 mags do you guys are using ? Ive ran Nighthawk and Wilson, seem to be preferring the Nighthawks.

    Honestly the Kimber Kim pro mags are quite awesome for the money and I've never had one fail.

    You need to try the match trigger, look for a tactical and try that.
    The match trigger is easily identified, it will have an over travel stop on the back side of the trigger.
    ;)
