Looking for these flat inserts.
Anybody have set they want to sell or know who has them in stock for a reasonable price?

They are known as "charging supports" and HKParts sells them. They are $4.95 each. You can't buy them in pairs.

No, OP asked about the flat filler pieces and you linked to the regular charging supports. This is what he is looking for: https://www.hkparts.net/shop/pc/Cocking-Aid-Filler-Left-Right-Set-VP9-367p17213.htm
For some strange reason, those are more expensive at $17.95 per pair, no idea why.

I kind of like the Charging supports, but i guess there's enough milling to not have them.

Yeah, I like the charging supports also.
I wanted the option of running without them.
Practicing reloads and slide work, I'm thinking I'll just keep it the way it is.

A lot of the students I take out really love the charging supports, and they stand out vs. the other pistols they try of mine.

My original inserts got loose and HK installed these free of charge (along with a set of new sights). I wish HK would manufacture the inserts larger than the slots so they didn't move around -- even my new flush inserts have a little bit of play (much less noticeable than the original inserts).

one of the things I like about the VP-9 are the Charging Supports, the wife of a friend was having issues racking the slide on his Glock 19. I let her try my VP-9 and Bingo !!! she own a VP now.

I would not use loctite. Mine have a little up and down vertical play because there is a small gap between the bottom of the meprolight rear sight and the top of the slide where the charge supports fit in. However, it doesn't seem like I could remove them without removing the rear sight.

Mine are tight. These are good for one handed charging against a belt, counter top, or anything for support. Nice to have if one arm is down.
