Heckler and Koch unveiled its new striker-fired pistol today. The VP9 is chambered for 9mm and will be marketed to the U.S. commercial and law enforcement communities this summer.
“The VP9 has an excellent trigger with a short, light take-up and solid break followed by a short positive reset. Almost like a single-action trigger in its precision, said Michael Holley, HK-USA vice president for Commercial and Law Enforcement Sales.
“The VP9 grip can be customized to fit any shooter by using a mix of three interchangeable backstraps and six grip panels – allowing for 27 unique grip configurations. A new feature that all shooters will love is small ‘charging support’ inserts that make manipulating the slide much easier.”
Heckler & Koch pioneered striker fired handgun designs with the HK VP70 and P7 pistols more than 35 years ago, Heckler and Koch officials maintain.
The new VP9 weighs 26.56 ounces and is available with 10 or 15 round magazines. The new pistol is scheduled to be available in July and will retail for $719.
