I don't have much to say that hasn't already been said about this one. It was 100% reliable through its first 100 rounds, has the best striker trigger I've ever handled and it was as accurate as I could ask for.

First rounds at 7 and 10yds:

And some at 15yds:

Thanks for the report, it's more confirmation of a great job HK did with this pistol. My VP9 has performed equally reliable and puts a hole where it's pointed.

I was expecting more words. Nice shooting.
Not much to say really, its as good as it gets for a polymer striker fired mid-sized gun. I like it better than my PPQ's but I still prefer the HK45 and CZ 75. I'll likely carry it this winter.

If you can grab a pistol out of the box and have it group like that and give no troubles....does the recoil and feel of the trigger even factor in?

I don't think so. Groups like that and no malfunctions means whatever the trigger, recoil or (sigh) the grip angle might be...it means diddly....you have a pistol that does exactly what it should do.

Congrats...I am going to buy one of those real soon myself...they are too good to pass up.

If you're just standing there, punching paper in no particular hurry, then no.

Of course it does. If somebody can shoot good groups with a crappy trigger, that doesn't mean they want to. If I'm going to spend money, I'd rather do it on something I enjoy shooting.

I think it does factor in. I had a PPQ and just didn't enjoy shooting it as much as some others that i owned. Sure , the PPQ trigger along with the ergs made it an accurate gun to shoot but i had other guns that did the same things (Glock, XD) that were more fun. And , I'm sure the grouping has more to do with the shooter than the gun.

What's the weight of the trigger pull?
I don't have a guage at the moment but I'd say ~5lbs. One of my PPQ's is 4.5 and the other is 5.5 and this feels very close to the PPQ's.

Nooooo! Must...hide...wallet!!

Seriously, $550 seems like a great deal. Maybe I'll get lucky and my range will get a rental so I can at least shoot one.
