VP9 Long slide kit - opinions Login/Join 
Member

As the title says, anyone have any experience/opinions on the VP9 long slide kit?

Been eyeing them for a bit now, and have heard good things about them.

Seems like they can be had for less than $400 now, and have pretty decent reviews.

Thanks in advance

I have 2 and think they are awesome. They shoot great, I like the sights that come with it and I think they shoot a little flatter than the regular vp9. Keep in mind I am a HUGE Hk fanboy with 14 Hk pistols (16 if you count the vp9 L's). That said, I don't think they are necessary or really do anything that the regular vp9 does, but I do think it balances the gun well and they do shoot great. Kind of like a g17/34. Worth it in my opinion, but I think it depends on what you are using it for.

I had the opportunity to shoot one yesterday. Its pretty nice, sights are good, functions like an HK. We didnt shoot paper to compare accuracy, but it was fun on the plate rack.

It is tempting, but I'm waiting until I can buy the whole gun.


A Perpetual Disappointment...

I find silly that some manufacturers have smaller frames with 15 round capacity with long slides, I'm curious about the overall balance of the gun.

Balance is good, I didnt notice a weight difference just handling the two. The long slide has some pretty good ports up hear the muzzle.
I hope when HK offers a complete firearm, it will have a match trigger

I put one on mine about a month ago.
Much better balance IMO. I put a Burris FF3 on it and could not be happier. 15 & 20 rnd below.
Let me know if you plan to use optics on it. Went fine but was not a slam dunk.
Shop around on the slide. Prices are all over the place. I paid $360.00 shipped.

Thanks, made me laugh.... Big Grin
Sadly, its purpose in life is shooting paper at the local indoor 25 yd range. Wink
Need optics for small groups these days.
Sucks growing ........ older............

Yeah, I'm a big HK fan but never got into the VP9 - I think it's great they are getting a bit more responsive to consumer inputs / needs with things like this and more rapid development of the VP9SK, etc.

Nice looking pistol, I'm sure it shoots great!

Thanks for the opinions, and great looking pistol!

I think I am going to go ahead and order one, not that I need it, but I do enjoy the VP9, and if it makes it better, why not?

Too bad their shipping is $25.

The guys right below them on the list, Patriot Firearms, only charged $9.95 shipping.

Guess I have one on the way.
