Heckler & Koch’s eagerly anticipated striker fired subcompact debuts at the 2017 NRA Exhibition in Atlanta, Georgia.
The VP9SK (9 mm) has all of the sought-after characteristics of the larger frame VP models but in a more compact design.
With a retail price of $719, the VP9SK continues HK’s trend of affordability in a superior quality handgun. The VP9SK is made in Germany and carries HK’s Lifetime Warranty.
The compact grip frame of the VP9SK allows the pistol to be easily modified to fit any individual user and is a feature found only on Heckler & Koch handguns.
The highly-rated HK VP precision strike trigger is also part of the VP9SK. It has a short, light take-up with a solid, single action break followed by a short positive reset. The result is trigger quality unmatched in most production striker fired pistols.
Every control is completely ambidextrous. Slide releases are present on both sides of the frame and the paddle style magazine release can be easily activated by left- or right-handed shooters.
TheVP9SK’s charging supports are simple, polymer inserts that are mounted on each side of the rear of the slide and provide better gripping leverage for racking the slide rearward. The charging supports speed reloading and make operating VP series handguns easier for shooters with reduced hand strength.
A proprietary captive flat recoil spring helps VP9SK pistols reduce the recoil forces affecting the operator and the handgun, improving shooter control during rapid firing and prolonging component life span.
VP9SK pistols can use compact double stack 10-rounders with flat or hooked, ergonomic floorplates. New 13-round and 15-round magazines with magazine sleeves that replicate the grip profile of the full size VP will also be available later in the year.
VP9SK pistols are available and shipping now from HK’s Columbus, Georgia facility.
