Buy HK VP9 9mm Striker-Fired Pistol
The highly regarded Crimson Trace laser aimers attach to the trigger guard of all VP models, matching the profile of the pistol and feature Crimson Trace’s instinctive front activation button. The laser can be installed in minutes and is adjustable for windage and elevation. Adding Crimson Trace models to the VP series is a landmark of sorts for H&K. It means that the VP is now firmly established as one of the dominant handguns in today’s market.
In development for more than four years, the VP9 is Heckler & Koch’s latest handgun and the first striker fired HK since the renowned P7 series pistols were introduced in the 1980s.
HK pioneered the first striker fired handguns, producing both the VP70 and P7 series, designs that impacted several models by HK competitors. But a superior trigger has eluded most striker fired pistol designs. The VP9 trigger surpasses those found on competitors. It has a short, light take-up with a solid, single action type break followed by a short positive reset.
Although influenced by other HK models, the VP9 has all the hallmarks of the latest, state-of-the-art handgun. All controls are completely ambidextrous. Slide releases are present on both sides of the frame and the magazine release can be easily activated by left- or right-handed shooters.
VP pistols are made in Heckler & Koch’s Oberndorf factory in southwest Germany. The VP9 is well-suited for civilian sport shooting, security, military, and law enforcement use.
