Our Assessment: This H&K 45C is a single and double-action semi-automatic pistol chambered for .45 ACP rounds. The HK45 was designed to meet US military specifications and is based on the famous USP45 design. This particular gun is the HK45C, the compact variant of the HK45 which is better suited to concealed carry. The gun has a utilitarian matte black finish, an ergonomic design and it remains mechanically sound. This is a great option for personal defense and concealed carry. Good luck on your bid!
