I am always curious why people modify or customize their guns and of course, did it help improve the action, accuracy, reliability etc.HK - not a lot of aftermarket support. I Really wanted white outline, adj rear sights. HK - you take what you can get - flat black - and be thankful. . Only one co makes fiber optic sights for HK and they are set .250 or higher to be visible w suppressors.
This is not a low profile set-up and you should know that going in.
I can try to get some pictures if you'd like ?
A couple of thoughts here....
Yes the HK is often and unfairly treated like the red headed step child with out just cause. But that is mostly because of the cost. People want cheap and do not consider reliability issues, where the HK excels.
So fewer guns out there mean fewer support groups, fewer trick parts, but that aside the gun is stellar out of the box and not in need of much to bring it up to match grade. You can buy and install a new barrel for $250. yourself, trigger must be done by an HK armorer but they are available and out there. and other than that what else do you need, I mean how do you improve on what many consider to be the Ferrai of hand guns?
Sights, true glow's with tritium... I consider Tritiums a must but glass and CC do not go well together, as they can be some what fragile and once the front rod is gone... Yes they do offer replacements not a good thing if you are in need and it is gone...
Silencers, went with the Osprey, flat low profile, fits the shape of the frame, and lets you use your stock sights.... I CC my HK and did not want raised sights to snag on a draw so I spent a little more and am not sorry one bit!
On the huge plus side is when I purchased the extended (threaded) match grade O ring barrel, WOW that thing will now do under 5" groups at 100 yards!
