    Yep. There was a previous thread about this 2 days ago letting us know. Nice! Ditto for the HK45.

    Am I the only one who feels that stuff like this cheapens the brand? I can't help but think of Sig Sauer when that new guy took over (back in the 2000s was it?) and all of a sudden QC went down the tubes and zombie themed guns were the best innovation they could come up with. I haven't been interested in a single Sig product since that era came about.

    Per H&K's customer server; these models are not optics ready and come with 15 round magazines.

    Not quite DE-HK's, these VP's are US-Dist exclusives much like the Sig/Talo.
    Sig I stay with the classic P2x series, an original DE P226 and Cohen era M11-A1.

    Brand cheapening, yes. Less is sometimes better. There’s a reason certain brands have a dedicated following and a lot of it has to do with not trying to cater to everyone. This definitely feels like something Sig would do back in the day.

    Exactly. Instead of importing OR VP9L pistols, HK is pumping out this stuff. I dare say it looks like they may be headed down the Sig road......

    Absolutely agree! This is like the blue polished Kimber pistols and all the SIG crap. Worse than these are the distressed red MR556 and VP9s -- Yuck! The only thing being truly distressed is the brand. This is not what most of us who have been long-time aficionados of HK are looking for. Keep it purposeful, elegant, high quality, expensive and well-engineered.

    When I first started shooting 7 years ago I started with SIG because that was the only name I knew. Once I learned more I realized those tribal and rainbow guns were pretty dumb and eventually became an Hk superfan. However, over the last year or two I have realized that selling guns is a business. Bash SIG all you want but they have it figured out. Why did they sell rainbow guns? Because people wanted to buy them. Why are they limiting their classic series offerings? Because striker fired optic ready pistols are the future. They continue to put out new product and offer products people want. I have waited for 2 years for the vp9L to shoot in uspsa. Hk only offers the slide of a COMPETITION pistol which makes the pistol unusable in the division it's competitive in??!!! Meanwhile SIG has put out 3 different versions of their similar pistol and it's currently the number 1 pistol in it's division by a pretty wide margin. SIG has it figured out, their job is to sell guns. I prefer my Hk's, I have 16 of em, but my SIG's, of which I have 14 have been as or more reliable than my Hk's and they continue to give people what they want. I wish Hk would adopt that business model a little more.

    I don’t compete, interesting point there and good to know.
    To me it makes the VP9L slide and now the VP9-OR/17rd both oxymoron SKU’s. If I were in the market I’d avoid the headache and just go straight to a Q5 Match Steel.

    But I’d be surprised if HK didn’t know this. I wonder if there’s law/license/tariff that’s holding HK… 1.) VP9L-OR/17rd will be a new import/firearm, 2.) VP9-OR/17rd is an existing US firearm + accessories.
