Check out the new additions to the VP9 family on HK's int'l website.

I though it was April 1st when I saw the push button magazine release option. A paddle is vastly superior to a button but I guess they did this to appease the minority.

Also notice the charging supports on the upcoming models are serrated and thicker. Safety levers are also coming, which I know some people want.

I am praying that the SFP9 SK (VP9SK) will be available stateside soon, along with the HK433.

I am still waiting for a polymer-framed P7 or a VP9 with a P30-sized slide length and chin delete.

Looking forward to the button. I have such a hard time with HK mag releases. Its the only reason I only have 3 HKs.

I index my trigger finger and use my middle finger to drop the magazines. For me it works very well.

The next time I work on my Beretta 92's I am going to swap around the mag release to try it using the same finger.

Not a fan of the magazine button change but I'm excited for the new (possible) releases. I just don't understand why so many American shooters complain or have problems with the paddles but whatever. Sometimes I think people need something to complain about so they choose that feature.

Agree, as a lefty I find the paddle release excellent. I can use a button release no problem, but prefer the paddle style.

The side button release will actually be a no go for me.

AGREED! Being left handed and trying to find that little itty bitty button in a tactical situation is not for me.

I do like the paddle release by the trigger guard. we own some with the button on the grip, ,,,i have short thumbs(can't reach it without moving hand on grip) the hk paddle release, is just waaaaaay easier, reliable, and faster if you ask me. I don't have to move my grip when changing mags. my hand stays ready to fire, and with my full hand on the grip, no movement, or fidgeting with my grip angle, to press a button. those of you who have slightly larger hands, longer thumbs, go nuts, me, i love my paddle release, i manipulate it faster than a small button. just my .02

I agree. I have no interest in a button release. not only is the paddle more reliable and intuitive, but on multiple button release guns I've had (especially compact and pocket guns) a situation arise where in my waistband or in my pocket the button got pressed and the mag either fell out then or fell out when I pulled the pistol out.
