    Search u can find 1000rds for about 200-210$. Great ammo, a little cleaner than American similar ammo.

    Happy shooting and enjoy



    And YES, strip, clean well, clp or equilavent, scrub good, brushes, etc, get her clean of all the factory clear grease. Apply some fresh oil and (very light dots of grease) on the rails if u want too. Don't overgrease, your hands will get dirty :)

    Enjoy
    Thank you again!! Very helpful!

    During heated discussion on pistol break-in procedures in break room at work I offered a comment, to which someone replied “well how many rounds does it take to break-in your HK?”, to which I replied “one”. I don’t know if that is universally true, but it was a funny moment.

    +1 What he said!! I don't shoot anything lighter than 124gr ammo. Never had a break in period.

    Exactly, 1 round. All my HKs worked from round 1. Even my very first VP9 with the red spring, I shot Blazer Brass 115 cuz it was cheap, no break in required.

    I switched to good 124g, see Articdeth's selection, that's pretty much what I run. I replaced (but kept) red spring to see what all the VP40 spring talk was about...still bang every time.

    Admittedly, 124g just feels better. Only 115 I like is the Federal and GD +P+ stuff, that's fun to shoot.

    My spring is reddish. I have a 2015 vp9. I have not cleaned, lubed it. Is there some special thinge put on the spring by hk? Should I take it off when cleaning, lubing?

    Clean and lube the thinge J, as long as it’s not reddish.

    Just shoot it, i ran UMC remmington 115g fmj for my first 600 rounds, in my vp9sk, never had an issue. Since then, ive ran winchester white box 124g nato, sellier & bellot 124g with a total of around 1400 rounds, never an issue. Its kinda like this, bowling with a 8 lbs bowling ball fast and getting a strike or a 16 lbs bowling ball slow and getting a strike, the end result is still the same. All 9mm rounds have plenty of energy to cycle the weapon.

    Is this ammo-“clean?

    %98 ammo is dirty, don’t worry about it, shoot and clean, or do what many. Of us do.......
    Don’t clean, and just do a quick wipe, and add a couple drops of oil before the range,
    If it’s your HD piece,clean, and lube after range.
    My range junker is the vp9, haven’t cleaned in ....

    Wow, must be 8 months now, no issues, keep shooting her. Don’t worry about it.

    I will correct myself here, ALL ammo is dirty.
    Don’t worry about it, sometimes, the carbon will keep it lubed for you, until a long time, and you may get an FTF or similar.
    Don’t worry about it.
    Enjoy your firearm.

    Clean her when needed. That is all.

    Stay safe.

    Good choice! I never noticed a "break-in" period with my VP9 and I'm sitting at about 5000 rounds in it. That doesn't mean it's not the case though, considering other members have stated their break-in ideas. I would say just definitely take it apart first and property clean/lube as previously stated. One thing I'd add though for your first shooting impressions, the mag release does not protrude as much as other similar firearms so keep an eye on your grip. If you notice your gun not locking back on empty, pay attention to your grip and figure out if it's because your gripping over the slide release (you probably are). Enjoy it though and get used to it! Best 9mm striker-fired gun on the market IMO!
