VP Tactical & VP9 Grey: HK Makes Waves at SHOT Show 2017

Recommended Posts

Heckler & Koch is showing off a few different goodies at SHOT Show this year, including new colored frame variants in the VP striker fired pistol family, as well as the threaded barrel VP Tactical.



Available in both Flat Dark Earth (FDE) and Grey, the colored frames are manufactured using special colorants added to the frame during the molding process and are available in both 9 mm (VP9) and .40 caliber (VP40). They include all the same features as a standard VP. The VP Tactical — available in both 9mm and .40 S&W — also share the same features as standard HK VP pistols, but with an added premium grade threaded barrel. According to HK’s website, only their weights and lengths differ, thanks to the longer and slightly heavier threaded barrel.


The threaded barrel’s on the HK VP Tactical are made at HK’s Oberndorf factory located in southwest Germany, using the famous Heckler & Koch cold-hammer forging process. The company’s cold hammer forged barrels, which are made from proprietary cannon grade steel — are highly regarded for their long service life. According to HK, similar barrels on P30 models have fired more than 90,000 rounds in endurance tests.
