Watch:  HK VP9SK 9mm Handgun

Hickok45 got an H&K VP9SK and took it out to the range. The VP9SK is a sub-compact model of the VP9.

Personally, I am glad to see H&K in the U.S. shooting market. The prices I am seeing for the vp9sk are close to $600, while the Glock 26 is a little over $500 and the Glock 19 is in the mid $500s. This makes the VP9SK priced close to the G19.

Specifications

From the HK website.

  • Caliber: 9mm
  • Length: 6.61 inches
  • Height: 4.57 inches
  • Width: 1.31 inches
  • Barrel Length: 3.39 inches

Now for the video.

There was once a time when H&K quality demanded a premium price. In the 1980s and 1990s the VP9SK may have cost close to $800. Today, quality is no longer an option, it is a requirement. Maybe stiff competition from companies like Glock, CZ, S&W, Ruger and Beretta is forcing H&K to lower their prices to remain viable?

The price of the H&K VP9SK makes it attractive. However, for some reason owning an H&K does not have the awesome factor like it did 30 years ago. Maybe that is just my personal feelings on the topic? Historically, H&K has set a high bard for quality. Today, that bar seems to be obtainable by a wide range of handgun companies.

Special thank you to hickok45 for making another great video, keep up the good work.
