The color frame additions to the VP9SK subcompact model are a natural development as these sought-after colors (Flat Dark Earth, Grey, and NATO Green) are popular and already available on the standard VP models. HK color frames cannot fade or chip and are unaffected by chemicals, sun, and exposure to the elements.
A small-scale version of the completely adjustable VP grip feature —consisting of interchangeable backstraps and lateral grip panels —is present in the compact grip frame of the H&K VP9SK. This allows the pistol to be easily modified to fit any individual user and is a feature found only on Heckler & Koch handguns. Molded finger grooves in the front of the pistol’s grip also instinctively position an operator’s hand for optimal shooting.
The highly-rated HK VP precision strike trigger is also part of the VP9SK. The VP trigger surpasses those found on competitors. It has a short, light take-up with a solid, single action break followed by a short positive reset. The result is trigger quality unmatched in most production striker fired pistols.
The VP9SK has all the features of the latest, state-of-the-art handgun. Every control is completely ambidextrous. Slide releases are present on both sides of the frame and the paddle style magazine release can be easily activated by left- or right-handed shooters.
All VP models are made in HK’s Oberndorf factory in southwest Germany using all of the company’s advanced technologies for barrel manufacturing, as well as production of the machined steel slide, polymer frame, and all internal components. HK VP pistols are competitively priced and covered by Heckler & Koch’s lifetime warranty.
