I'm thinking about getting a Mark23 HK.. think the gun is worth it? It's almost $2000...
In a world of compromises, some people put the bullets in the magazine backwardsâ€¦But it doesnâ€™t matter, because our gun is on the cover of the Rainbow Six video games. Look how cool that SEAL coming out of the water looksâ€¦ If you buy a $2,000 SOCOM, you will be that cool of an operator too. And chicks will dig you.
Then there is the Mk23. Which is huge, accurate, reliable, (which it **** well better be, since it is the size and weight of a Mini-14) costs as much as a used car, huge, and is universally despised by the SF that it is issued to. Talk to anyone that is in an SF unit. The Mk23s theyâ€™ve been issued sit unused in arms room. Did I mention that it is HUGE? But thatâ€™s okay, because the HK fan boys will explain that it is an OFFENSIVE handgun. (scratches head) whatever the **** that is supposed to mean.
They are reliable, but so is a $125 Makarov. Only the Mak has a better trigger.
