Check in the reference library of hkpro.com. Site is run by hardcore HK aficionados. Some of the guys used to work for HK.

HK45 assembly/disassembly is supposed to be similar to USP

Take it to a proper gunsmith---why risk lowering the value of this fine pistol if you are not handy with tools---or do you even have the right tools for the job---safety first!

1) because it is easy
2) all you need are some punches
3) learning to maintain your gun yourself is invaluable

i recently installed an ambi safety on my usp. it was intimidating at first, but it wasn't as hard as the videos or the instructions made it sound. trust me, it's easy. my advice though is to use a white towel for your placemat. that way if pins fall, you can easily see them and they won't roll away.

the video is good. I have all the punch and tool. However, i'm not sure if usp is the same mechanism with HK45. I think they are should be very similar

Hk45 is based on the usp all of the newer guns all share a modular design with the exception of a few parts that's what I've read
