    Default New Member and Question About VP9

    Hello! I am from South Carolina and just joined the forum today. I am planning on buying a VP9 here in the next couple days and I am debating between the black model or the grey model. Both would be the standard model, not the LE model. I understand the grey is mixed in with the polymer as opposed to being ceracoated. However, I am wondering what differences if any there are between the two. This will be my first firearm purchase and I just want to make sure I have all the facts before purchasing. Thank you for taking the time to read this and I look forward to all of your responses and help.

    No difference between the two other than color. BTW you are correct the color is in the polymer and not coated so if the weapon is scratched, bruised etc you will still see grey. Grey is probably a limited run like most color frames so if you can get grey now then do it because they might not be readily available in the future and youll have to pay more. Where as standard black frames are available

    Same polymer is used. Buy the one that is least expensive. If there is a price difference.

    Like @sean415 said, the coloured frames are most likely a limited run. Definitely consider the LE model. Unless you plan on going with different sights than mepros, it's a great value with 3 mags and tritium sights that have a charging ledge. (I read somewhere the latest models have tfx pro's.)

    Welcome to the forum! I got the black VP9 when there were no other choices, but I love it just the same :)

    Thanks for the reply, info, and welcome. I ended up going with the grey standard model.

    Thanks and yeah I did consider going with the LE model but I remember reading some negative feedback about the mepros and I figured I could just as easily upgrade the sights later. I ended up getting the grey standard model this morning and am happy with my decision.

    Thanks for the welcome! I figure I would be happy with either as well since they should function the same. Ended up going with the grey standard model.

    Another question, is there any type of recommended ammo to use? I think I remember reading something about using a certain ammo in the beginning? Thanks for reading and I look forward to a reply!

    I use 124 gr FMJ for my MP5, same for the VP9. Others may differ, and that is fine, I have good luck with the CCI blazer brass. I like the Freedom Munitions 124, it just takes so long to get it after I order it, sometimes upwards of a month, which, I don't understand, but whatever.

    I get the Blazer 124 gr 9mm from Natchez Shooters Supply www.natchezss.com frequently I order it on Monday and have it on the porch by Wednesday of the same week.

    Enjoy!
