    I want to buy a black MK23. Hoping to spend about $1700. Help me find one in that price range! LNIB is fine. CDNN is out of them.

    May I ask why you want to spend $1700 on a gun? Why not get a USP .45 and have some money left over for ammo, training, or another gun?

    It's a gun I've wanted for a while. No, I'll never use it to its full potential, but I have the money to buy one right now, they don't make them anymore, and I can take classes any time. I want to get one before they go from very hard to find to impossible to find.

    I'm not really worried about suppressing it. It'll be really cool if I get one, but I really like .45.

    I'm just really not into the tan. Plus there are like a million tan ones and very, very few black. I know, I know... I'm stupid.

    Why was the Mark 23 discontinued? Was the USP Tactical it's sucessor?

    But it DOES cost thousands of dollars, so doesn't that kind of defeat the purpose? :hsughno:
