Last month, Heckler & Koch released their latest innovation: the VP9SK, the subcompact version of their popular VP9.
Here’s a bit about the gun:
Length: 6.61 in.
Height: 4.57 in.
Width: 1.31 in.
Barrel Length: 3.39 in.
Sight Radius: 5.73 in.
Weight (with empty magazine): 23.07 oz
Magazine Size: 10 rounds
The VP9SK retails for $719 and is made in Germany. Currently, the firearm comes with a 10-round magazine but H&K will release 13-round and 15-round magazines later this year.
For this test, I shot 400 rounds: 200 rounds of Winchester 115 grain full metal jackets and 200 rounds of Remington 147 GR (HTP) Jacketed Hollow Points.
The VP9SK comes with low profile 3-dot photoluminescent sights, allowing for quick acquisition in both daylight and low light situations. The height of the sights is a good balance between snag-free drawing and one handed manipulation situation should the situation arise.
The VP9SK, like it’s full-size brother, comes with interchangeable grip panels that allow the user to customize the feel to their liking. That, combined with the texture depth and pattern, assure positive control and minimizes palm fatigue, even after several hundred rounds in a single shooting session.
