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.

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.
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.
