I handled a VP9T today in 9mm and I noticed something that puzzled me:

The recoil spring force was noticeably heavier than the base version.

I've not bothered to read any technical specs of the "T" so it could be well documented and known by all.

Has anyone handled and compared them? Mine was a sample of one "T" and three base models.

Thanks.

It's got a VP40 RSA . Cases going about 4 to 5' @ about 3:30 ?

Didn't shoot it. I handled it at the store today.

What I don't understand is why a stiffer recoil spring for a suppressed weapon. It should be "less sprung".

That said, I do NOT like how easily the VP9's slide can be pushed out of battery.

I had intended on purchasing a VP40 RSA and after handling the one today I have decided to do just that - without checking part numbers of the VP40, VP9 and VP9T. If it works reliably then that's what they shall wear.

Suppressing a weapon increases recoil forces. That is why a heavier recoil rod assembly is used.
Didn't deduce that.

Thanks.
