Finally the rumors that been around since the Mark 23 first came out have come true. HK announced that the Mark 23 along with the SL-8 are being discontinued.
Maybe they will do a last of 500 run???

They charge to damn much for a rifle that has to be converted into something useable. Fuck em!
Link Posted: 7/28/2010 6:54:55 PM EDT
I cant imagine they sell a lot of Mark 23's when you can buy a usp tactical for half the cost

and the SL8.......
Well its the SL8

Mark 23 =

SL8 =

They should do a run of VP-70s to make up for the fact that they are dropping the Mark 23

Why would you do this to me?

I'd be very curious to know production numbers on the Mk 23. I doubt it was more than a few thousand. That was always a very limited niche market.

God I hope this means they have plans for a G36. I know it doesn't... but I will continue to hope.

HK ran between 1000 and 1500 a year, each year over their production life time. My two were AB (01) date coded and were in the 8000 and 9000 range which corresponds perfectly to roughly a thousand a year.

If you want a Mark 23 and are near Birmingham, I just had to pass on a brand new one at Mark's Outdoors for $1650...

I agree that's a lot to pay for a pistol but it is a good price for THAT pistol. Personally, I would rather go with the tactical which they had as well but I can't remember how much it was. They had a counter full of USP fullsize and compacts as well as the HK45c...all at or near wholesale pricing.

Why, do you have to do some room clearing in a squirrel nest or two?

It's funny. I actually thought about you and your recent purchase when I saw all the HKs. If I remember correctly the HK45 wasn't that great of a deal...something like $889 or maybe $839. I can't remember for sure. I think they had about three of them.

At about $.50 per round I would rather not fuck with 4.6 x 30mm in what would be essentially a range toy..

I hear that John Travolta bought the last MK 23.......


Damn, if you gents like guns....you might want to rent From Paris with Love. Travolta does some serious work with a MK23 and KAC can and the footage containing the mk23 is FANTASTIC.

Glad I bought my MK23 when I did. It's a great gun.

So does this mean that they might let someone make licensed G36 clones a la MSAR and the AUG? Would be cool.

That looks like a B&T suppressor
