    Default VP9 with Trijicon SRO

    It has been done before but I still thought you all might be interested in viewing. Slide was sent to Primary Machine to be milled. Turnaround was 6 weeks. Along with the slide & SRO I sent Heinie Straight 8 sights to be installed as well and opted for a complete black nitride refinish. If you're happy with cerakote you could knock 2 weeks off your turnaround time but I'm not a fan. Workmanship is second to none and I currently have 800-900 rounds through the gun since its return, including a steel challenge match where I knocked 37.29 seconds from my overall time from the patch prior. I had taken another pistol course and made slight changes to my gear so I can't attribute all the improvement to just the optic but needless to say I'm very pleased with the work as well as the optic. Also, pay no attention to the Maxim 9. It was just along for this outing.

    man, that looks sharp!!...i just ordered a VP9L slide + SRO for a little milling project....now, with the news of HK releasing an optics-ready VP9 this year, guess i'll have to save up even more money now for another VP9OR + RMR....i'll be broke for all of 2020

    The OR models are convenient/necessary if you change optics often but a custom milling will have a better fit and will sit lower on the slide thus also giving more options on sights.

    Right now I'm pretty dead-set on RMRs and SROs

    Wanted to ask you more about the milling job you had done with Primary Machine....any issues since you've received it back?...i noticed that Ashbury Precision seems to mill and mount the optic on a platform....Primary does not....does it loosen up on ya?....i'm looking at putting an SRO on a VP9 long slide.....any issues with cartridge ejection on your VP9/SRO combo?....also, with the Heinie suppressor sights, is it a lower-third cowitness or absolute cowitness with the red dot?..

    I have a Primary Machine and an Ashbury. I asked some of the same questions so I'll share what I was told but I can't verify this as fact.

    Ashbury Precision worked directly with HK to develop the mount. They determined that direct milling would remove too much metal and make the slide too thin. That might lead to reliability and failure issues so they don't mill as deep and use a mounting plate. The rmr sits a little higher and the co-witness with Heine straight 8s is a one third lower.

    Primary Machine mills it deeper. Mine came with Trijicon Night Suppressor Height sights and was absolute co-witness. I replaced them with Dawson precision blacked out sights in a custom height and then they were 1/3 lower.

    Both shoot awesome and hold zero. I have around 1000 rounds through each with no issues.

    Thanks for the info!...now decisions, decisions, decisions.......I definitely prefer PM's pricing when compared to APO (APO is the cost of a pistol for milling, cover plate, and sight installation...haven't come to grips with that yet..lol)....but i just gotta weigh the supposed "value" of having this extra mounting plate that APO uses...
