    The button bros have already ruined Walther. Leave HK alone.

    If you want a button release gun, literally every other company makes one.

    This the only one I have ever seen with push button VP9-B maybe someone has more info but I don't care for the push button.

    THERE YOU GO, fixed it for you.

    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.

    Don't mess with perfection!!!!

    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?

    Not when they try to mess with features that make an HK an HK. 99% of the pistols you see in a gun case can do anything any other pistol can do. But what makes an HK is HK. I'm not a BMW owner but if I was I wouldn't want that company to change their values or product to suit someone driving a civic. There's nothing wrong with a civic, in fact the new ones are pretty dang sharp. But the BMW owner buys a BMW because of the features they offer. HK has always took the stance of being a premium manufacturer. Providing quality and unique features is part of that. Anything less than that, it not only devalues the brand but it takes away from what makes them special. If someone wants a civic, buy a Glock. I can buy an HK, take it to the range and run it box stock without feeling the need to change everything about it. It does everything I need and there is something special about that. When you realize that HK makes true fighting guns, not range guns, your entire perspective changes.

    Knight3124,

    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.

    VP9-Button — nice People’s Civic.
    USP-Button — That’s not a BMW.

    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.
