I think everyone who was tuned into HK's German social media knew the VP9 Match was coming.

I'll be really interested if we see some sort of SP5-SD, SP5-10, HK45L, VP45 or (dare I say) "SP7"... or some really wild factory SBR options.

We know China for making cheap and knockoff versions of quality gear. Are they capable of making equally quality gear at a much lower price? I’m sure they are, especially if a company takes their proven production methods, design, and materials to China. Much like what is done for many of our cell phones and other tech products, there’s no reason they can’t. Will they be enthusiastically accepted by the gun buying public, ummmm, that may take a while.

They already are being enthusiastically accepted by the gun buying public. The vast majority of red dot optics being purchased by the public these days are not US made.

Seems like I'm the only excited for the match. I will be buying one. Hope the official reveal is soon so I can put an order in.

I posted this on another thread, but I’m wondering if HK may of taken the UCP off the shelf and given it some updates for the US market?

I might be too if I didnt already have a VP9L OR with a threaded Jarvis barrel and Gray Guns action job. I‘d jump on the mag well though.

Did anyone hear how long this media event is going for?
Some other announcement keeps being teased.

Hope so. If they gathered a bunch of people to announce a pistol that they already make with a better trigger that's pretty sad.

The HK UCP (Universal Combat Pistol) is the counterpart pistol to the MP7 that HK developed back in the early 2000’s that fired the 4.6x30mm round. Like what the FN 5.7 is to the P90.
I would be as excited to get a UCP as I would a SP7.

I think the odds are better for a single stack 9 than an UCP though.

As someone who attended some previous training at HK, I agree HK is taking steps in the right direction with regard to the civy market. Are they where I’d like to see them? No, but things don’t happen all at once, or over night. ... If there’s any area for improvement, it’s the limited quantities, which only drives scarce product to auction sites.
I agree on both your points - well said

HK: What do you want?
HKPRO: Everything + a civi MP7
HK: OK, but we can't do civi MP7 because it won't meet 'sporting purposes' clause.
HKPRO: Cool, so you'll announce civi MP7 at SHOT?

HK: Here's a SP5K
HKPRO: Where's the SP5?
HK: Here's the SP5 plus a long-barrel version for states with antigun laws
HKPRO: That's ugly. Also where's the SP5K-PDW??
