All of the holsters listed below are designed for the Heckler and Koch HK45 & HK45 Compact. We have been changing designs and constantly enhancing our hk 45 holster to satisfy our clients. Remember should you have chosen a Kirkpatrick hk 45 holster you are receiving over half a century of experience in hand-crafting leather holsters.
How our holsters are built
We start by cutting from the best part of the hide. We then hand dye the holster to ensure a rich deep color that will accent your firearm. All our holsters are sewn using seven cord bonded nylon thread and double stitched in all critical areas. Each holster is then hand molded for a perfect fit and contoured to the hip for comfort. The edges are then sanded and hand burnished to a smooth glossy finish. This helps prevent moisture from entering the edges of the leather. They are then polished and finished with a clear coating to protect the finish. Our concealed carry designs secure your firearm while still providing instant access when needed. Our holsters are built to last a lifetime.
About the HK45
The HK45 was developed as a product enhancement of the well known USP45. It was first released in 1995. The Caliber .45 ACP HK45 comes with many user-inspired improvements including interchangeable grip panels (backstraps), a Picatinny MIL-STD-1913 accessory rail, improved ergonomics, and more ambidextrous controls.
Along with the HK45 Compact; the HK45 was created as a possible candidate for the Joint Combat Pistol (JCP) and Combat Pistol (CP) programs implemented by the U.S. military in their search for a new service handgun to replace the 9-millimeter M9. These programs were stopped just before completion and no guns were selected.
The HK45 utilizes an HK proprietary O-ring barrel for exact barrel-to-slide lockup and maximum precision. HK45 barrels are created using the popular HK cold-hammer forging method for exceptional performance.
