    The manual has pictures, parts diagrams, and step by step instructions that are going to be a much better help in your understanding than just reading what someone wrote on an Internet forum. It sounds like you are very new to guns and reading the manual and taking a course or finding a local person to show you how to handle a gun is going to keep yourself and others around you safe. If you aren’t willing to put in the effort, maybe you should get rid of the gun.
    Do you even HK, Bro?

    I already took a course, read the manual. Course just taught basic safety and plinking .22. I was looking for direct personal experience with VP9 from owners. Maybe videos any of you made that shows not some words and drawings in the manual. Manual is only words and drawings its not a video.
    Are you saying VP9 can discharge by itself without any input from user?

    Hello,


    I'll give you some products that will work. I use slightly different products but what I'm giving you in the links will work just fine. You can read the owners manual and check youtube videos on how to clean and field disassemble a VP9 or VPsk and you should be good. You can also checkout Hickok45 or Sootch on youtube. Just make sure what your read or watch on youtube jives with manual.

    The VP9 series does bring a boatload of these guys into our forum. 90% of them disappear after a month or so; I wouldn't worry about reading their posts.

    I am here to stay, ask questions and learn as long as I live which I say would be at least 500 years or more.

    In addition to the previously mentioned RTFM (Read the .... manual), pictures are worth a thousand words. Search VP9 cleaning on youtube and you'll find countless videos of takedown and cleaning.

    When I bought my first gun I found a you tube video on how to field strip it . Sitting at the kitchen table I disassembled and reassembled it several times with the video running on my laptop. It's really quite simple once you've done it a few times. You can find countless you tube videos on how to clean and lube. Again, simple enough after you've done it a few times.

    Cleaning supplies are a matter of personal choice and you probably would have trouble finding two people on this forum who use the exact same products. You will need cleaning solvent, gun oil, 9mm sized patches, pistol cleaning rod, 9mm brush, and 9mm patch holder. You can pick these up at most gun shops, or at Walmart.

    When I bought my VP9 it was dripping in oil from the manufacturer. I had to give it a serious cleaning to get it range ready.
    Be sure to use 124 gr ammo for the first 500 rounds or so (as per the manual ) . i didn't and had multiple failures. It ruined my first day at the range with the VP9. The manual states that the gun was designed to use 124 gr NATO. After those 500 rounds you will be able to use 115 gr without issue.


    Hope this is helpful.

    Dude, your new here, please have some humility, and be a wee humble.
    We were all new once. Please be cool, and don’t just hit us with arrogance, you’ll be ridiculed.

    I was new, came in here firing on all 8 cylinders, and was quickly humbled, and stifled.

    There are absolutely no dicks in here, just good descent people.

    In time you will learn quite a lot, as I have.

    As far as your question, yes, field strip, get to know your firearm, clean, scrub, clean the Barrel, add some good oil, reassemble, and hit the range.
    The manual is a good guide to your our firearm.

    No I’ll feelings.

    Shoot, clean, repeat.
    Or test your pistol, shoot, shoot, for months, and see how long it takes, and how dirty you can get her before a FTF happens.
    Entirely up to you.
    Enjoy your new pistol, the VP9 is a blast!
    Enjoy, and make a range report for us.

    Cheers

    Ps: use some nato pressure rounds or +P rounds for a while, or for the life of the pistol.
    They power through most FTF ‘s and the like.
    Enjoy your new pistol.
