I was asked earlier to post this, and am finally getting the time to do so. I recently purchased my first HK piston in the form of the .45 Expert, but it took my a little while before I had time enough to go out and put lead down range. I went out and through a course of about 250 rounds, all I can say is that I was very impressed. I ran my rounds through 2 - 12 round mags and 2 - 10 round mags and did not have any feed issues or jams. The first session was 100% with dependability. The only complaint was that it took me one magazine to get a feel for it, but that is due to the fact that I had not been able to get much 'trigger time' in the last few months. But after that, things worked great. I shot about half of my rounds at the 15 yard line with the rest spread between the 20 yard line and the 10 yard line (for fun). I used primarily PMC 230gr FMJ and some remaining Wold 230 gr FMJ that I had left (primarily to get rid of them). At the end of the session, The Expert and I cut a hole in the target you could put your fist through without touching paper. I fired primarily with a Single Action trigger pull and was very impressed. It is the closest trigger pull to a 1911 that I have felt in a SA/DA pistol. The DA trigger pull was long, but not bad...it would be accurate enough to stop someone - but I wouldn't want to rely on it for hitting the 'X' when I can back the hammer and have a trigger almost like my Kimber 1911 TLE. HK reports that their recoil system reduces felt recoil, and although the weapon is very managabe, even in the off had, I could not tell much difference between it and my Kimber. The only major difference is that the HK tended to push back a bit more rather than climb, allowing for a slightly faster follow up, but any difference is negligable over the 1911. At the end of the day, I was indeed impressed with the accuracy and dependability that HK is known for. I did not expect the accuracy that I get out of my 1911, but I did. Without actually sitting down and giving you all a measurement between the two, I'd say that it was close enough for government work. Between the two, it is hard to say which is more accurate, but both my Expert and my 1911 are vary similar in accuracy. The only trade between the two for me is that my Kimber has night sights while my HK has target sights with an M-2 Light for the rail. But I don't think one could go wrong with eather. If you are looking for an HK, I would recommend the Expert. For those of you who wanted a very detailed range report, then I appologize for not giving a more professionally detailed account of the days fun.
