    Default button release for other models?

    Has anyone heard anything either way if HK plans to expand the button release on the VP9-B to the P30 series and/or other models, or is it just going to be a one-off for the VP line?

    I hope not. The paddle release is awesome! Plus I like tradition!

    I’m assuming if they did, it would supplement existing lines, not replace, like with the VP.

    I really like the paddles on the USP/P2000 series, but I drop mags under recoil with the longer paddles. I realize it’s a hand size/grip issue, but it makes the P30/HK45 series a no-go for me. It’s rare, but I have heard of a few others with the same issue, so it would be nice to have the option.

    I've had this happen 2 or 3 times when shooting my Hk45, but never with any of the others.

    The dual paddle HK uses is superior and faster for me, I don't need a button

    Of course for the 96 percent of the rest of shooters that prefer a button, I hooe you have no problem with HK offering button models, especially if they use the same magazines like the VP9B.

    Happy to be in the 4% who prefer the mag release lever.
    With all of the USPs, Mark 23s, the USP Compacts, the P2000s, P30s, HK45s & 45Cs, VP40s mf'd. without button options, HK has sold an awful lot of pistols to the 4% who prefer the lever, or don't mind it.

    Yeah, but those "Button People" are shooting Tauruses, Berettas, Rugers, and Smiths.
    They have no discerning taste or common handgun sense.
    Let them continue muddling along in their foolishness.

    It's like taking a fine Bordeaux, chilling it, and adding a spoonful of sugar, so it will appeal to the Charles Shaw afficianados.

    At the last HK day Wayne did say that a button release USP was coming. Maybe that turned into the VP9 instead? I like the paddle, especially the VP9/P30 style. I wouldn't miss the Mark 23 tiny ones if they went to a button instead. But I wouldn't really seek the button out over the paddle.
