Operator Notes:

Produced in response to the US Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) contract for an Offensive Handgun Weapon System (OHWS). The H&K MK 23 Mod 0 is actually one of three parts of this system. The system also includes a laser aiming module (LAM) and Knight's Armaments Company (KAC) sound and flash suppressor. This KAC supressor produces 132 dB of noise fired dry and 122 dB when wet (a few ounces of water in the suppressor). The LAM can be used as a white light or Infrared (with IR filter) light illuminator or as a laser dot sight. The MK 23 is a large handgun and is not easily concealed. Then again, it is an offensive handgun and was designed to be a primary weapon in extreme close quarter combat (such as airliners, buses and shipboard). It was also designed to fire +P .45 ACP ammunition. Though relatively new, it has undergone extensive testing and is considered extremely reliable and accurate. It had to fulfil the highest accuracy requirement for a handgun the US military ever required. This weapon can be set to fire single action only, or double action only, according to the operator's preference. The only drawback for this system is it's large size. The civilian version of this weapon is the H&K Mark 23 which differs only in the inscription on the slide and the barrel headspace specifications. There are smaller versions of this system known as the H&K USP (Universal Service Pistol) that are also chambered in .40 S&W and 9mm Parabellum.
