Nice. The longslide is particularly attractive to me, especially given how Walther continues to be a letdown in following through with their 5" kit for the PPQ M1, first promised two years ago. Factory 20rd mags is also sweet as well; not looking forward to the pricing, but hopefully they become available before the wretched politicians in my state take us down the horrors of the California rabbit hole.

Good to see it go live but I'm not sure if I want the SK anymore; small pistols and myself don't seem to coalesce well. I buy 'em, then fail to have any desire to put them to use outside of the range. My G43 is a case in point. Spending on "carry-friendly" guns when I won't give up EDCing guns the size of a compact Glock...better spent on other fun guns.

Button release, eh? Now will they use the same magazines? Or is this another PPQ M1 vs M2 annoyance?


Same magazines. Pretty versatile lineup that shares a common magazine. I wish Sig would have had some forethought with their magazines.

P250/320 compact, sigPro, and the P229 could have shared the same magazines with a little modular thinking engineering. But it is what it is.

Saw the notification the other day. The biggest thing that has me excited for is the button release. I could never quite get the paddle release quite right. Won't be getting one this year but it also goes back on my high interest list when looking for another full size.

Too bad, I was hoping for a single stack compact. The market is oversaturated with double stack compacts including HK.

For more info.

I don't like the looks of the pushbutton mag release and the safety looks like it's down for safe up for fire (ugh!).

But there are two trigger options - "normal" and a lighter/shorter option. And they changed the racking "ears" on the back of the slide.

Seems H&K is going after the Walther PPQ. I'd consider a VP9SK and L, maybe the optics ready one as well...

Enlarge the picture. Look at the white line. Down is Fire (line pointed at F). You can see the S under the lever. Up, the line will be pointed to S.

No button mag releases for me, thank you. The paddle release is one of the reasons I like HKs and Walthers. Its part of being German.

They have also slimmed down the cocking ears on the rear of the slide.

I see that now. Thanks. It's not in the best location, kind of far back on the frame. However with the light trigger option (3mm travel 20-25 N force) it may be very good...
