Saw this on another forum - "The VP9 is not a top priority item for HK when they are delivering rifles and other machine guns to military customers under strict timelines. I do know that HK has farmed out the production of VP9 slides to someone else. Don’t worry, they didn’t have to go far to find someone that was up to the task and able to maintain quality."
Given the nature of HK's in house production, I find it highly questionable. However, I thought I'd post it here. Thoughts?
"Buy once, cry once; or not. Let's be honest for a second; most of you will be zombies one day and I'd much prefer you be zombies with crap weaponry."
What is the (viable) source?
The VP9 in the US is a civilian aimed product, so there’s no rush there in lieu of their mil contracts. And why even outsource the slide = increased cost and less profit.
It makes sense to fill the mil orders first, it’s in their contract. A CNC mill doesn’t care/know what it’s machining, the same manpower just replaces the setup jigs.
I've seen the threads on here about the VP9 and the lengthy arguments that unfolded, so I'm not trying to bring that back to life.
Why would they go to the effort of promoting new updates to the VP9 (e.g. Optic Ready), if the were unable or unwilling to produce them?
