    Does the new mag release allow it to function if dirty?

    Maybe not. But it is a cool looking polymer gun. :)

    VP9s don’t work when dirty?

    I believe it works with regular VP9 magazines, and, if that’s true, great job by HK to keep the magazines standard across styles.

    Blech! Why bother bringing out a VP9 variant with an inferior magazine release when they should concentrate on bringing a .45ACP version to market

    Man.....I grew to love paddle releases in short order. This is a step backwards.

    I know you’re just having fun. FWIW, I’ve said the same thing about 9mm and soccer.

    Paddle releases are much better.

    Great to see it finally in USA. HK will sell a whole bunch of them and always great to see more choices available. A Walther rep had mentioned on Walther forum that the M2 PPQ outsells the original M1 version by about 10 to 1.

    I have two VP9s and really like the paddle releases as well.

    Same with my Walther PPQs. The first was a lightly used M1 with paddle release and the second an M2 with the button. Walther did a better job with their button release than most of the polymer framed button release handguns I've owned. But, I still prefer the paddle release M1. Also have the paddle release on a Walther P99 compact. The paddles are just marginally faster to use, at least for me.

    As with most things, it's just personal choice.

    I really like the standard VP9 mag release. I wasn't sure I would when I first got it, but I do like it. The button would not bother me, but I would not choose it over the original!
