The HK VP9 Family of Pistols
Heckler & Koch are known for their high quality, durable firearms, that come with a hefty price tag. However because of their reliability, the price tag is worth every penny. This holds true for the VP series of handguns. There are numerous different variations within the VP series, but today we're going to be going over three of their 9mm offerings: the VP9, the VP9SK , and the VP9 Tactical OR. These are the American designations for the series while the European models are designated SFP9. There are a few models that are merely minor variations supposedly for Military and Law Enforcement, although these modifications can still be purchased on the standard pistols. To prevent any confusion as to which is which we will only refer to them as the VP9, VP9SK, and the VP9 Tactical OR. The VP9 is a striker fired, semi-automatic handgun. Its development began when the Bavarian State Police requested something to replace the HK P7. Next we have the magazine release. Next comes the trigger.
