The Hk VP9SK (in 9 mm), the widely awaited subcompact version of the popular Heckler & Koch VP Series handgun, offers all of the desired features of larger frame VP pistols but in a more concealable shape.
The VPSK also features the well regarded HK VP precision strike trigger. The VP trigger is superior to those on rival products. It boasts a quick, light take-up, a strong break of the single action variety, and a quick positive reset. In the end, manufacturing striker fired pistols have trigger quality that is unparalleled.
The compact grip frame of the Hk VP9 SK is a scaled-down rendition of the fully adjustable VP grip feature, which consists of swappable backstraps and lateral grip panels. This makes it simple to adapt the handgun to fit
The Hk VP9SK is outfitted with modern, cutting-edge pistol features. The entire control scheme is ambidextrous. Both the left and right-handed shooters can easily operate the paddle-style magazine release, which has slide releases on both sides of the frame.
The Hk VP9SK features the same unique charging supports that are featured on full-size VP pistols from HK. The charging supports, which are uncomplicated parts positioned on either side of the slide’s rear, give you more gripping leverage as you rack the slide backward. Shooters with weaker hands will find it simpler to use the VP thanks to the charge, which facilitates quick reloading.
Numerous tested HK magazines, such as the compact double stack 10-round flat floor magazine and the 13/15-round extended magazine for a more ergonomic fit, can be used with VPSK handguns.
Hk Vp9Sk pistols have an abbreviated Picatinny MIL-STD-1913 rail molded into their polymer frame for mounting lights and accessories.
VPSK pistols use a proprietary captive flat recoil spring that helps reduce the recoil forces affecting the operator and the handgun, improving shooter control during rapid firing and prolonging component life span.
HK’s famous cold hammer forged barrel — made from cannon grade steel — ensures a long service life. Similar HK barrels on 9 mm P30 models have fired more than 90,000 rounds in endurance tests in 2010. The polygonal bore profile, with no traditional lands-and-grooves rifling, contributes to longer service life as well as a slight increase in muzzle velocity.
The VPSK’s machined steel slide is protected from corrosion and wear by HK’s hostile environment finish and all metal components, including springs and pins have superior metallurgy.
