All Combination of Combat Pistol
History of HK45 Series
The HK45 was designed to fit requirements of the U.S. Military JCP (Joint Combat Pistol) program which had the purpose of arming the U.S. Military with a .45 ACP semi-automatic pistol instead of the 9mm M9 pistol. Heckler & Koch, along with Larry Vickers, an ex-Delta Force operator, and Ken Hackathorn led the design and development of the HK45, Though the program was suspended indefinitely in 2006, HK decided to make the HK45 available on the commercial market as well
as to law enforcement and military groups.
The HK45 was developed as a product improvement of the highly regarded USP45, first released in the 1995. The Caliber .45 ACP HK45 includes several user-inspired enhancements including changeable grip panels (backstraps), a Picatinny MIL-STD-1913 accessory rail, better ergonomics, and more ambidextrous controls.
