Manufacturer’s Description

The Heckler & Koch (H&K) VP9SK is a semiauto pistol built on a polymer frame with a machined steel slide, and chambered in 9mm. It’s a Browning-type recoil-operated weapon, and it’s a compact version of H&K’s full-size VP9 (read our in-depth VP9 review here).

Other features include:

  • A striker-fired trigger system;
  • a captive flat recoil spring;
  • a cold hammer forged barrel (H&K says it’s made from cannon-grade steel) with a polygonal bore;
  • an ergonomic grip that includes three changeable backstraps, six changeable side panels and molded finger grooves;

  • a large, recurved trigger guard to accommodate gloves;
  • ambidextrous controls, including a paddle-style magazine release alongside the trigger guard;
  • an abbreviated picatinny MIL-STD-1913 rail molded into the frame;
  • diagonal grasping grooves on the slide front and rear, plus additional grip tabs (H&K calls them “charging supports”) mounted on the slide’s rear;
  • a red striker/firing pin that’s visible when the striker is cocked;
  • 13- and 10-round steel magazines with either flat or extended floorplates; and
  • either standard three-dot sights, or night sights.

Note: H&K says you can use the 15-round magazines from the full-size VP9 and P30 pistols in the VP9SK, too.
