    Nice, a little behind the curve but good to see that HK continues to evolve to market change.

    The way the market is,clean it up,put in it's box and sell it.Many people do not check the internet and do not know what is new. Also ask full price,you can always go down.

    I really like the Luminescent sights my VP9 came with. A RDS would be nice also.

    :cool:

    Glad I didn't buy one last year.

    I have seen the new ones in shops local. I really like them and think I will eventually end up with one.

    I have no interest in a VP for some reason, but I can see picking up a few of the new 17 rd mags for my P30 and USP9c.

    I got a 17 round mag in to use with my ancient VP9. No need for RDS.

    I just got issued a Trijicon RMR for my duty weapon so we’re getting used to them. I still hate it.

    So the new mags work in the old VP9s?

    So really the only change is the red dot cutout and sights? Big whoop. If I had an old VP9 I wouldn't sweat it.

    It's certainly not unusual for major gun companies to continually revise, refine and update their existing models. They do it with cars, motorcycles and computers. Why should firearms be any different?

    BTW, the HK shooter in the video has pretty decent trigger recovery technique.

    RDS is not quite the magic wand some people believe it to be

    No big deal

    Just be grateful they're not introducing models based on finger grooves / no finger grooves

    Good idea with the optic cut, and the blacking out of the rear sight

    Cool additions to the VP9. Looks like HK is starting to listen to their customers with the SP5 and now these needed updates.

    This!
    Also, I would love to see HK offer +2 mags for the USP line.

    I hope the VP40 is next for an upgrade. I might finally buy one and get a 357 barrel.


    OP, I don’t understand what you mean by less than a year. Were there recent upgrades before the new mag and optic cut? I think my VP9 is almost six years old.

    And yet Glock, which revolutionized the popularity with their MOS, still won't produce a G43 with a factory cut.
