The button bros have already ruined Walther. Leave HK alone.
If you want a button release gun, literally every other company makes one.
Just buy a Glock. Leave HK alone.....

I WANT THE PADDLE. I'm NOT all the 'other people' that whine moan and complain that HK's too expensive and if it just had a button mag release. That way it would be just like ALL THE OTHER PISTOLS OUT THERE.
NOT NO. HELL NO!!!
I purchased HK BECAUSE it's the best and I LIKE the paddle mag release.

I'm new to H&Ks and this forum, but the amount of venom I have seen when it comes to the VP9-B surprises me. I tried and tried again to get used to the paddle release, just couldn't do it. I get it that's a "me" problem, but it kept me from purchasing an H&K for a long time. Once they finally came out with the VP9-B, I jumped on board, and I'm glad I did. It's now my favorite pistol. I don't think the OP wants H&K to replace their paddle release models with button models, just add it as an option for those who want it. Come on guys, getting more folks to join the H&K ranks is a good thing, right?

Welcome to the forum. You have now embarked on the Red & Black road. It's a long journey and along the way you will empty your wallet occasionally. But you end up with an amazing collection of HK firearms.
You will know you have it bad when you start selling your other firearms and replace them with HK's of your choice. Been there, done that.
Again, welcome to the HK ENABLERS forum.
After shooting some of my friends button guns, I don't see how people prefer a clearly inferior method of releasing mags.

When I bought my first HK, the VP9sk, it was to try to convince the other members of our school security department to adopt the gun. None of us had ever held or shot a pistol with a paddle-style magazine release. At first, they balked. But after a couple minutes of practice, they loved it...just like me. Now I prefer the paddles. I've found that most people balk at the unfamiliar, and there are those who will never accept anything of European design. None of that bothers me, as I don't take individual preferences personally. But I know what I like, and I like the paddles.
