The KWA MK23 is the quintessential offensive handgun. Now, when I say offensive, I mean offensive. This handgun is just as capable as and carbine or SMG in terms of accuracy and power. Yes, it still can be used as a sidearm. However, if you are a player that uses primarily pistols, or transistions from field to close-quarters during play, this is the pistol for you. And of course, being KWA, the preformance and build is flawless. And if you are Metal Gear Solid fan, I'm sure you recognize this piece of hardware.

Construction

The lower body of the pistol is constructed from a high-impact polymer, making it very durable. Seriously, you could run this thing over with a truck. The top slide is constructed from the same steel as the real firearm. This adds a bit of weight, but also the most realistic feel and operation.

Maneuverability

The MK23 is a very large, offensive handgun. At nearly ten inches long, it's not the most CQB friendly handgun, but experienced operators should have little difficulty getting it around corners. Adding a suppressor to the pistol only worsens this minor fault of the pistol. The sights are quite tall, and can sometimes snag in a holster. It has plenty of weight to throw around, but not enough to where it becomes a burden.

Comfortability

Nearly identical to the HK USP in terms of comfort. Plenty of checkering on the grip, and even more ridges on the trigger guard. The grip itself is rather beefy, perfect for operators with large hands, but those with smaller hands might have some difficulty operating some of the pistol's features.

Trigger and Trigger Operations

The trigger is identical in size to that of the HK USP. However, it features several vertical grooves along its front side, decreasing the risk of finger-slippage. Once cocked, the trigger pull is almost null. The pistol can be fired as fast as the trigger can be pulled, witch is rather quickly, due to the snappy trigger-return. The trigger-guard is completely oversized, allowing two fingers to be placed inside, even with the thickest of gloves. It's nothing short of an operator's dream.

Safety Mechanism:

The safety mechanism is a small paddle-type switch on the both sides of the frame positioned directly on the rear of the frame. This provides a very natural-feeling safety operation, no matter what hand the operator is using. The safety is nearly silent, perfect for stealthy ops.

Magazine Operations

The magazine release lever is cradled under the rear of the trigger-guard. This makes the release completely ambidextrous, and easy to use in a pinch. The release has plenty of grooves, so even gloved operation is flawless. The magazine itself holds a staggering 25 rounds, but suffers from the lack of the ability to utilize a speed-loader. Rounds have to be loaded by hand, one-by-one, due to the double stacking style of the magazine. The magazine holds enough gas at a time for around one and a half magazines.

Sighting System

The sights on the pistol are adjustable three-prong sights. They also feature night-sight dots, which honestly are a bit small for such a long handgun. Finding the front sight can take a moment in low-light situations, but the distance between the front and rear sights only guarantees more accuracy.

Rail System

Despite having about three inches of usable rail-space, the pistol can only accommodate a USSOCOM designed LAM (laser-aiming module). These are not commercially available, and a Picatinny or Weaver adapter will run you about as much as the pistol itself. As far as rail-space goes, this gun is metaphorically dead.

Accuracy

The pistol is amazingly accurate, due to KWA's famous NS2 gas system. Targets can be reached at lengths previously available only to rifles and sub-machine guns. Firing at a blistering 360-380 feet-per-second, the pistol is still able of hitting a quarter-sized target at 100 feet.

Realism

The pistol looks and feels incredibly realistic, featuring full H&K trademarks plastered all over the gun, and an individual serial number. The weight is practically identical to the real firearm, minus the weight of the rounds. This is simply as close as you can get to the real thing. Period.

Conclusion

Overall, this is the perfect pistol in my opinion. Sure, some could complain about it's size. But, if you are like me and have large hands, the pistol is a natural fit. Also, if you are looking for something that packs more of a punch but can still be holstered, this gun is for you.
