    Default Should I buy VP70Z?

    I have an opportunity to buy a like new in the box VP70Z. It has all the original manuals, paperwork and test target. Box looks as good as the gun. Asking price is $700. Is this a good investment for my HK collection?

    It is the least desirable of the pistol line. Unless you're trying to have one of each weapon in a HK collection, you'll find more enjoyment with another HK.

    Yep agree with that there is a reason why they comand less then other HK of that time ... Trigger is horrible has a imop unneeded safety ( the military model did not ) ..Frankly I hatted shooting them it was just not fun .... Works run and nice feed ramps but that is about it

    The only expection to this is if its the Italian model in 9x21 as they are a bit rarer

    ^ This. I had one in the 90s and is the worst trigger I've ever felt in 40+ years of using firearms.

    What wrong with you guys?!
    A fella comes on the HK forum and ask if he should buy an HK.
    Well we know what to tell anyone that asks should they buy an HK, buy it!

    What's wrong? The VP70 is HK rehab. Who in their right mind wants that?

    If the $700 is going to keep you from buying something you really want, pass. If you want HK history, arguably the first striker pistol, the gun so futuristic it was used in the movie Alien, and trigger that will make you appreciate the refined feel of a USP, BUY IT! I've owned two, the first like you described in great condition with original box. I sold it after listening to friends tell me everything wrong with it. Fifteen years later, I bought the replacement. Still the same 'ol stinky dog, but I love it and happily keep stored for the days a friend stops buy and ask me about all those HK pistols I own. P.S., I'm the same idiot that sold a P7M13 30 years ago and still want to replace it!

    VP70z needs more love! Of course it has it's shortcomings. OP asked if $700 for like new with box and docs was a good add for his HK collection. I say heck yeah. It's obviously not the best carry, defense or range gun. But neither is a maritime finished "Mark" 23. Doesn't stop us from buying them.
