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.
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.
