HK 45: When Will It Stop?

4-Aug-10 – 13:24 by ToddG

Per Robbie’s suggestion in this week’s HK45 update, we’re going to hold a little competition. It’s amazing to me that the HK45 has gone more than twenty thousand rounds in less than four months without a single hiccup… especially since it has fired as many as 10k rounds between cleanings. So…

When will the HK45 have its first stoppage?


  1. One entry per person. If your number is surpassed without a stoppage, you lose; you cannot guess again. If you pick a number that has already been picked by someone else, you lose; you cannot guess again.
  2. Entries are submitted via comment to this post.
  3. Posting anything other than your guess disqualifies you permanently.
  4. The email address you use when posting the comment must be valid. If we cannot reach the winner, the next closest guess (without going over) wins.
  5. We’ll use Price is Right rules. Whoever guesses closest without going over is the winner.
  6. For purposes of this contest, “stoppage” will apply to the first instance in which the HK45 test gun fails to go completely through its normal cycle of operation, except for stoppages which are determined by to be ammunition-induced. Essentially, anything that earns stoppage, malfunction, or breakage in the tally being kept each week.
  7. No purchase necessary. Contest and offer void where prohibited by law.


  • Pick the exact round count at which the stoppage occurs and you win a certificate good for one free class. (this certificate is fully transferable so if you do not want it or cannot use it, you can at least sell it on the black market)
  • If no one picks the exact round count, whoever comes closest without going over will win a hat and a genuine HK45 Challenge Coin (courtesy of the folks at HK-USA).

Train hard & stay safe! ToddG
