The HK45 itself has a good amount of weight and even though its a compact, it doesn't feel overly small. It also comes with an additional back strap for you to swap out if you so choose. Back to the weight, even without the magazine, the HK45 still feels weighty in hand. It's a made out of polymer plastic and its feel is quite nice. The texturing looks good on the HK45, and the same can be said about the back strap. The slide is aluminum and the sights are 3 dot style. The slide features serrations upfront and at the rear. The trigger pull itself is very smooth just like on the real HK45. Unlike many other pistols, you actually don't have to remove the slide. With each HK45 you get a key and you can adjust the hop right here in the front under the barrel. In terms of forward-thinking, this scores pretty high marks. The base plate on the magazine does provide a comfortable rest for my hand. You can actually use a mock suppressor and its 16mm CCW head to fit on this gun. Being a gun with that also features double action, if I don't rack the slide the gun will actually not fire. However, after you have racked the slide and de-cock the gun, you can actually fire using double action. This gas airsoft pistol offers crisp and quick blowback and cycling, providing a highly satisfying sound as it cycles through the shots. The slide locks back just like the real HK45 when the magazine is empty. Magazine changes on the HK45 are quick and easy with the magazine dropping out of the pistol when you press the magazine release button.

I watched the Redwolf TV episode where the guys did a pistol challenge. I saw one of them use this pistol and it got me thinking about it. I ordered it and the same parts that were used in the video. I have to admit, its pretty good, no wonder why it seemed to be the one everyone voted for!
