I checked my VP9's trigger pull with a Lyman pull gauge, which shows a consistent 6.5 pounds. This is a bit heavier than the advertised 5.5 pounds. I know I can add the match trigger spring kit, but I'm not interested in that and would like to keep the pistol stock. Is there anything else I can do, or will the pull weight decrease with time?

Check out Rick Holm Lazy Wolf Gunsmith

My competition gun clocks in at 3.92lbs and is as good as you can make it

I agree, Personally I would not want the trigger pull on a daily carry gun at 3.9 lbs.. I would prefer a clean 5.5 with minimal take up.

If your comfortable breaking the gun down, you can remove the dis connector and polish out the two stage feeling type of hump. I did that when I installed the lobos trigger, which has a slightly different geometry in the trigger design. I use this gun for IDPA only and I didn't want too light a set up, mine comes in right around 5lbs or so, but the lyman digital is hard to get consistent pulls with IMO. I assume it will also lighten up further with usage or heavy dry fire practice but have not got to that point yet myself.

I've got about 1500 rounds through it, with many more dry fires. I would assume that it's well on its way to being broken it at this point.

There are some great HK armorers/smiths on this site you could PM if they don't respond to this thread.

As mentioned above, I imagine that a few of these guys could dial in your trigger weight pretty close to where you want it.

TheSigArmorer.com - Robert C. Burke - not sure if he offers a vp9 service package, he does work on HK hammer guns though.

The pull weight will decrease with time. Try measuring the trigger pull toward the lower end of the trigger to see what that shows if you are not already using that.

I don't have a Lyman gauge but I estimate my VP pull at about 5lbs even. It is a lot better than the three Glocks I have. Another thing that makes it superior is the relative shortness of the pull.
