The firing pin block is a much debated device as many people feel the block is needed.

One novel feature of the gun are its interchangeable grip panels.

Quite a few pistols on the market have interchangeable backstraps, but someone at H&K had the idea that maybe that wasn’t the only part of the stock people might want to adjust.

The Series 70 Colt Government model pistols were introduced in the 1970’s as an update to the aging M1911A1 pistols.
