    Yep, I would just check the side panels before buying. Even so, they will happily send you a new one if you do get a bad one. It's a slight inconvenience, but it doesn't affect function and I don't mind small errors like that when the company promptly makes them right.

    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.

    That's kool! I actually thought it might have been a grey VP9sk side panel that they have in the works that was placed on your gun by accident. Lol!

    Yep, I honestly couldn't have asked them for more. I don't see why HK gets a bad rap for customer service.

    Seems to be an old thing that won't die. I'm relatively new to guns, 4 years or so, and have only heard great reports of their service. And my experiences have been awesome.

    Just picked up my VP9SK LE and it has the same light colored panels, even one of the extended grips is light colored.
    Which department or number did you call to get on the list for replacements?

    Thanks!

    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.
