H & K’s New Guns!

(from TFB, in part)

BREAKING: HK Releases SFP9 L, SFP9 SK, Maritime and Optics Ready Pistols


Heckler and Koch has just announced a few additions to their polymer pistol lineup. Known as the VP9 in the United States and SFP9 in Europe, H&K is adding the much awaited long slide SFP9 L and compact SFP9 SK variants to the current SFP9/VP9 offerings. Digging a little deeper, you’ll find a Maritime model as well as an Optics Ready model.

A few interesting features: One, there’s an option for either a push button or paddle magazine release. Two, optional 20 round magazines. Three, an optional manual safety lever.

Obviously we need to dig deeper into the specifications for other hidden gems. But the announcement will obviously elate H&K fans everywhere.

Is this a tempest in a teapot?  Does this appeal to the civilian market?  Is it even available to the civilian market?  And, most importantly:

They are H & K pistols, not known for their customer service.  Do we really want specialty firearms we cannot get repaired, should they need it?

“Why are they making these?  To sell, of course!” (Jeff Cooper)

What do you guys think?

  1. I’ll pass, as usual… Too heavy, too expensive, BAD customer service…

  2. I’m with Old NFO, remaining unimpressed by H & K. The whole Germanic attitude of “what do you mean, fix it? You shouldn’t have broken it!” leaves most of us cold. So no thanks.

  3. Never owned one, shot a couple. They were accurate but also priced well above what I brought that worked equally well. I’ve heard the nightmares of (no) customer service. I never intend to find out for myself if that’s true or not. I have no reason to believe it isn’t.
