    So with no mag it's 'easy', which is what I thought you'd find. Sounds like need some hand strength exercises, as my kids mention same but are able to release slide with just thumb.

    Just an update for those who took the time to help me out.

    I got 400 rounds through the gun and still extremely difficult to thumb the release.

    I had one failure. There was one occasion where the gun would not go into full battery. Almost as if the slide didn't have enough force with the recoil spring to force the slide all the way forward. It was about 1/4-3/8 of an inch back. It was during a reload and using the slingshot method. I couldn't believe it since my issue is that the spring seems to stiff and wont allow me to use the slide release, that should also mean it would easily push the slide forward and not have so much "loose" slide play for lack of a better term.

    I can't say for sure there is something wrong with the spring, but it definitely is causing me to second guess the gun. Even if it ate up all the ammo with no other issues.

    Can you take some snap caps to a gun shop and try a different Pistol?

    No issue with the same caps in my p7 or p2000


    I think I'm going to order the stainless recoil rod/1 piece from hk and see if it makes a difference.

    I think, what Waldo was asking, was if you could try a different VP at a store to see if you still had the same issue. IE- there might be a problem with yours that needs to be fixed. ;)
    On that note, have you had anybody else try this out to see if they have much problem releasing the lever?

    That’s not an HK part.

    Saturday I was out with my P2000/P30SK, it takes more ‘effort’ to slingshot than to thumb the release. If you can rack the slide, you should have enough dexterity/strength to thumb the release. It appears there’s something off with your VP9SK.

    FTF, what ammo are you using?
    An lastly, call HK first (why even bother with non-HK solution).

    When I first got my VP9sk last year the slide release was also rather difficult for me. It loosened up over time. I now have 6000-7000 rounds and its almost effortless to drop the slide. I noticed that the slide release was more difficult when the magazine was empty. Give it a few range trips and it should become easier.

    This is my experience as well.
