Does anyone know if the HK45 will have a metal or polymer out barrel? From the looks of pictures and videos, the barrel looks like it is constructed of metal but than again looks can be deceiving. I love the HK USP line of guns so far but my only gripe with the series is the polymer outer barrel. I'm really hoping that the production line of the 45 has the metal barrel.

The Polymer barrel is there to cause less strain to the internals of the NS2 gas system. Generally, polymer barrels on KWA pistols don't bother me, but I can understand for your case, that it is something you do not like about the USP's. The USPs barrel at the ejection port is quite visible compared to other pistols. As for now, I'm not sure myself if the HK45 prototype has a metal barrel or not. It's always subjected to change.

That's my guess.  One of the "good" on-line overseas sellers.

Ehobbyasia also has it and even though its only a 5% discount it comes out a little less as the shipping is $7 less.

Hey all, well I just bought my first KWA and its an HK45 and I love it. I was curious since this post has been made, if anyone has come up with a metal outer barrel for the hK45?

So far I have only seen one with a slide sold as a set.  I would like to see just the barrel myself and hope someone can share a link...

Yeah i think you are referring to the Shooters Design slide and outer barrel set Boobie purchased.  http://kwausa.com/fo...showtopic=10283

I liked it but he seems to be having some minor issues. I actually like the look in the pic posted bt Viet better.   Maybe something like that will become available.

I found the RA-KWA Tactical .45 CNC Steel Outer barrel, would this fit into an HK45? They also have a Match outer steel oute barrel.

That would be nice.  I fished around and found the RA TECH threaded outer barrel: http://shop.ehobbyas...p-tactical.html

It was referred to in another thread.

thanks, as I was going through the forum, It seemed this topic has come up a few times. I can only find boobie's video and the usp 45 and usp tactical seem to work, but the fit was not perfect.
