Welcome back to the fold !
I got one last year for almost the exact same price 470. A VP9, idk what’s up with that but hey I’ll take it!$476? They gave that away.
Nice blaster!A local gun store is having customer appreciation days, and in addition to the deals they have on new guns and equipment, they're dropping 10% off all their used firearms as well. I was on the hunt for a good used J frame, but there weren't any in the case, but there was a nice used HK VP9SK with a holster in there. After several shops low balled my trade, I decided screw it, I'll just go back and buy the HK. With the discount, I walked out the door with the pistol, 2 10 round mags and a 15 round, the case and all the accessories for $476. While sorting through the paperwork in the case, I found the original owners receipt showing it was purchased at another local shop for $634.
I've played with the back straps and grip plates finding the mediums of each are perfect. Got her all cleaned and lubed. This has a fantastic trigger! I don't believe I've ever had a gun that displayed so little movement when the trigger broke. Of the 10 round mags, one has a flush fit base pad while the other has a pinky extension. I'm looking for another pinky extension for the flush mag, although I would imagine it would shoot very similarly to my Glock 26 with that flush pad in place. I fear my play money, or at least a good portion of it, will be going to extra mags and since the holster that came with it really isn't correct, a new holster. For now, I have it in a Milt Sparks I bought for my G26. It fits perfectly in that leather except it leaves the mag release exposed.
Hopefully in the next week or so I'll get to the range and get better acquainted. One mag is currently loaded with SIG Elite Defense 124gr V Crown and the others with S&B 124gr ball. Time to load up on some more 9mm.

I have one and my only complaint is I wish the stippling was more aggressive like the Smith and Wesson M&P 2.0.Congrats!!
I have a VP9. Great pistol.
With the removable side panels and back strap, you will feel like HK made the pistol just for your hand!!
I agree, it does have that slick plasticee feel, but with few exceptions, that's the way most polymer guns feel to me. I'll not rush to judgement just yet. Once I get to the range and sort out the exact combination of grip components that work best for me, I'll be adding a Talon Pro grip. Beyond that so far, I've found nothing else that I really want to change. The trigger shoe is comfortable, the trigger pull is smooth and breaks cleanly, it points naturally, the sights are solid and easy to see, and although it weighs in a couple ounces more than my normal carry 26, in the Sparks holster it is extremely comfortable. With my Glocks there are certain things I feel the need to change right out of the box, this HK not so.I have one and my only complaint is I wish the stippling was more aggressive like the Smith and Wesson M&P 2.0.
I've only had my VP9SK for a couple of months. Feels about the same as my G26 with Wolff RSA. I usually put my thumb on the back of the slide when holstering.I have a question for the HK guys on here. The recoil springs seem a bit light. I haven't shot it yet, but it takes very little pressure to push the slide out of battery. I noticed it when I went to holster the gun, having to put my thumb on the back of the slide to keep the slide in place. That said, I found HK parts has the OEM RSA's as well as a stainless version. Not knowing the round count on this pistol and based on the original purchase date I assume it's not very high, I'm still inclined to get a new RSA. Am I suffering from an abundance of caution or is this a good idea?
