    I called and emailed HK customer service. They tell me that only the standard VP9 will get the red dot slide. So, no VP9SK. They also confirmed that there will be no full VP9L pistol available, but rather you’ll have to buy slide kit and a standard vp9

    Why though? :(

    They've had the SFP9 L OR on the international website for a while now. Does US have to wait another year?
    All grown up now!

    That's disappointing.

    It doesn’t look like it on the xender discord omegle website as of yet but there’s no telling.

    I think HK missed the mark here.
    This should have been the VP9L OR.
    They could have killed two birds with one stone: OR and long slide.

    We were told by HK last year that the complete VP9L would be available by the end of the year.
    Now, as per GAMMA's contact with HK (post 41), there will be no VP9L at all.
    This is a huge problem for USPSA shooters wanting to run the L.

    As for the 17 round mags, I think it was a wasted effort.
    But time will tell if these are as reliable as the 15 rounders.
    I sure hope HK didn't compromise reliability to appease the wannabe operators.

    Part number is 200521.

    What's the purpose of a longer slide with an RDS? For most folks, the longer sight radius becomes a moot point, and I suspect that the number of people that actually perform better based off of the recoil characteristics of a longer slide is pretty minimal. So, I'm not convinced that it's all that great a product with a large demographic begging for it, though I am curious as to just how much extra effort it really would be to pull it off; I'm also curious as to if there are any changes to the VP9 slide and/or springs to better account for the wider range of weights the overall slide will have.

    You can buy an aimpoint plate for the VP9.

    Edit: Ignore me, covered above

    Glock produces RDS enabled pistols of every slide / grip combo imaginable yet the long slide G34 is the most prevalent Glock CO platform on last two Nationals' equipment surveys. I can come up with a number of reasons, having one gun well positioned for both irons and optic divisions being #1 reason.

    A bigger issue is HK producing a competition oriented slide and failing to make it legal in some of most popular competition divisions.
    “When you wake up in the morning, Pooh," said Piglet at last, "what's the first thing you say to yourself?"
    "What's for breakfast?" said Pooh. "What do you say, Piglet?"
    "I say, I wonder what's going to happen exciting today?" said Piglet.
    Pooh nodded thoughtfully. "It's the same thing," he said.”

    Yep, and why I am running my p320x5 currently. I have 2 vp9L's that cannot be shot in the division they were meat to be shot in. And don't come optic ready for the division they COULD be shot in. It's a little silly.
