HK45 Endurance Test: Week Nineteen

Tuesday, August 17th, 2010

26,334 rounds 0 stoppages 0 malfunctions 0 parts breakages 25,000 rounds... just a memory, now. Number 25,000 happened during this F.A.S.T. drill, shot cold first thing in the morning with my carry ammo (Winchester 230gr Ranger SXT) with all my gear exactly as I'd worn it for the ninety minute drive to ...

HK45 Endurance Test: Week Eighteen

Wednesday, August 11th, 2010

23,905 rounds 0 stoppages 0 malfunctions 0 parts breakages Apologies to anyone who guessed lower than 23,905 on the When Will It Stop? contest, but we've gone another week without incident. Over the past week I've put a lot of effort into using the NRA HQ Range's new target system to establish ...

HK 45: When Will It Stop?

Wednesday, August 4th, 2010

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. ...

HK45 Endurance Test: Week Seventeen

Tuesday, August 3rd, 2010

22,275 rounds 0 stoppages 0 malfunctions 0 parts breakages Are you getting bored yet? Getting ready for the second half of the test, twenty thousand rounds of bulk packed 230gr American Eagle FMJ just arrived. To be honest, the bulk pack may be slightly more portable but it's not as convenient when you're ...

HK45 Endurance Test: Week Sixteen

Tuesday, July 27th, 2010

20,625 rounds 0 stoppages 0 malfunctions 0 parts breakages Well, the 20,000 round point is nothing but a memory. Yes, it took a little longer than previous tests (12 weeks for the P30 and just 10 for the M&P). But the plan was always to go a little slower with the .45, ...

HK45 Endurance Test: Week Fifteen

Wednesday, July 21st, 2010

19,050 rounds 0 stoppages 0 malfunctions 0 parts breakages Pictured above is Freyja, who as you can see has prevented anyone from shooting the pistol over the last couple of days. Nonetheless, there was a major milestone passed over the weekend while teaching in Washington. The HK45 has now gone over 10,000 ...

HK45 Endurance Test: Week Fourteen

Thursday, July 15th, 2010

18,578 rounds 0 stoppages 0 malfunctions 0 parts breakages (this week's report comes from TCinVA after he spent all day Saturday running the pistol during Speed Kills) When  Todd offered to give me the HK45 test gun for the duration of the “Speed Kills” class held over the weekend, my first thought ...

HK45 Endurance Test: Week Thirteen

Thursday, July 8th, 2010

17,014 rounds 0 stoppages 0 malfunctions 0 parts breakages OK. Zero rounds fired this past week. Not exactly exciting, right? The HK45 traveled with me to Montana for vacation over the 4th of July. The picture seen above may or may not have been taken inside Glacier National Park depending on the ...

HK45 Endurance Test: Week Twelve

Tuesday, June 29th, 2010

17,014 rounds 0 stoppages 0 malfunctions 0 parts breakages The HK45 has now been proven to work in Canada as well as the United States! The pistol has gone about 8,000 rounds without being cleaned... not to torture the gun but simply out of laziness, to be honest. I don't think I've ...

Wednesday, June 23rd, 2010

Sorry, folks. I'm in Canada teaching all week. There will be a full update next Tuesday. Train hard & stay safe!
