They are fairly popular among those willing to pay the price.
But you won't see much about them here because there is very little done to them by pistolsmiths.

There are a few 'smiths who work on them:

Cylinder & Slide https://shop.cylinder-slide.com/ccp51/c ... &ref=CP112

Bill Jarvis http://www.jarvis-custom.com/

Teddy Jacobson http://www.actionsbyt.com/

and Bruce Grey ([email protected] or 916.853.1132.) up around Sacramento. Depends upon which model you have. There may be more information at the HK Pro site at http://www.hkpro.com/ . Probably there are others but I am not aware of them. Parts may be hard to come by so fewer 'smiths work on them along when looking at shear volume there are far more Glocks and Springer XDs in the world.

You guys had me going there for a minute. I was thinking I never saw a H&K revolver. Then I realized you probably posted this in the wrong area

I got rid of all mine, too. I had a P7M8, a USP Stainless compact .45, a50th anniversary USP boxed commemorative, and a .40 compact with the LEM. I worked for them for a few years back in the early 2000's. What a fun gig that was. I got a heck of a deal on all those guns. Sold 'em all for a killin, too. Had too, really. Times were hard and Alabaster was trying to keep a roof over Mrs. Alabaster's head. I really don't see many HKs around these days. Understandably so. crazy expensive, and I don't think they have the same build quality or engineering that the P7s and HK rifles had. When they went to polymers(After the VP), they fell off, IMO. Same with the rifles. After the roller delayed systems, they went down hill in a hurry. I sure do want a 93 these days. I think Century makes a clone, but that frightens me.

Keepin' a roof over the bride's head is VERY important, Alabaster. A nephew of mine, who I trained to shoot, got a gig as an LEO on a on a local PD. With an eye toward his career aspirations, I trained him with my Colt Gold Cup Trophy (my only flavor of big bore semi-auto). To my great surprise, when he got on the job he was issued an H&K in .45ACP. I was amazed that such a small department would outfit the troops with such an expensive weapon and such a great caliber. He continues to carry it, approx 10 yrs later, and qualifies very well with it.....

wow, that's kewl. I know it seemed GLOCK ruled while I was there. There were some departments who would buy, more that would T&E the USP's, but very few would turn their check to the $ deal G would offer them. It seems they're a bit of a collector's piece. People "In the know" dig em and can bring themselves to drop the coin for one, but most people it seems don't get what the hullabaloo is about. I like 'em, but there are others for the $, I would prefer, and there are others for less $ that I would prefer too. P7 being the exception, to mee. THere are few handguns I find even close to that gun for overall quality. Reliability, accuracy, easy of carry. THat lil gun has it all.

I own 2 USP's. They are the most reliable semi's I have ever owned (others include SIGS, Berrettas, CZs, Rugers, Kimbers, and a Colt). They run no matter what you feed them, how dirty they are, etc. Pull the trigger and they go bang ... just like my Redhawk and Service Six. Not as accurate as my SIGS or 1911s, but plenty accurate as a combat weapon. I wouldn't sell 'em ... that's for sure and for certain.
