Heckler & Koch now shipping VP9L long slide kits (VIDEO)

For owners of standard HK VP9 or VP9-B models that want a more competition-ready top half, Heckler & Koch has you covered.

The German gun giant’s new long slide kit converts an ordinary paddle-lever or push-button 9mm Volkspistole with a swap-and-go exchange of a loaded slide. The overall length of the VP9L is 8.25-inches with a 5-inch O-ring enhanced barrel, offering a sight radius of some 7.25-inches. By comparison, standard VP9 models use a 4-inch barrel.

The slide has rear serrations, charging supports, and front lightening cuts while the O-ring enhanced barrel is optimized for accuracy. The slide includes adjustable LPA competition sights with a fiber optic front. (Photo: HK)

Teased back in January at SHOT Show, the VP9L pistol itself is not on the market but owners of legacy guns can pick up the conversion kit for $450 to tide them over until it is.

You can place the VP9L slide on any full-size VP9, shown on the new push-button 9b model at SHOT Show in Las Vegas last month. Caliber is 9mm on the striker-fired polymer framed gun. (Photo: Chris Eger/Guns.com)
