    I have not heard this before. How are the VP slides made compared to hammer fired HK's?

    I was debating the PPQ and the VP for quite a while. Two things I did not like about the VP before I ever heald one was the braided trigger spring and weld on the slide release. Very AKish. I'm sure I'll catch hell for this but I have a few AK's and prefer the 7.62 to the .556. Could not get one to fit me and the accuracy was so-so. I went to more expensive platforms chambered in 7.62x39 and IMO, it was worth the $.

    The PPQ looked cheaper to me. I really like and prefer the paddle mag release, it's far superior IMO. When I realized the VP40 was heavier and made for 40 and the PPQ M2 did not have paddle release the decision was easy.

    I don't sell firearms that work. I still my my AK's and I'll always have my VP40 unless something ugly pops up with more use. I can't see that happening at this time.

    Yes, oh do tell. I assume you've toured HK factories and talked to the designers?

    Barrels are considered the best thing that H&K produces from the quality of the material to the engineering, machinery/tooling, finishing, inspection, service life and accuracy.
    No skimping was done on the VP9.
    You've got better things to spend time being concerned about.

    This was posted last year by Marine0303, whose opinion on all things HK I greatly respect. Anyone want to take issue?

    I guess it boils down to out of the box performance and no desire to modify it.

    I can buy an LE model and do absolutely no mods to the gun and be perfectly happy with it. Only other guns I can say that about are $3K+ 1911’s.

    Every since I learned to use the paddle on my USP's over 20 years ago, I've come to love it. It's not that I can't use the button on my other pistols but it seems so much more intuitive using my trigger finger to activate the release. The P30L/VP9/SFP9 have a grip that feels so comfortable as though it was sculpted to my hand. I no longer get that "Glock Knuckle".
