UPDATE: HK sent me the new side panel via Fedex 2nd Day Air. Looks fine!
The more and more I see them the more and more I know I'm going to have a VP9sk in the collection. Good to hear you got a new side panel that fast.

Which department or number did you call to get on the list for replacements?
Very odd, I'm surprised the Germans, being as anal as they all are, would let this leave the factory. When you spend as much as we do on these firearms, stuff like this does tend to bug a person. Thanks for posting and sharing. I just ordered a VP9SK LE and will be curious to see if I'm one of the "lucky" ones who get the grey panel with orange dot!
Glad HK made it right and made it right in 2 days. It didnt always used to be that way. It was never as bad as the "HK hates you" crowd made it out to be, but it could test a man's patience.
It is a bizzare QC hickup though and hopefully it isolated to the bad dye job, of a single side panel.
