Poll: Do you want to see a Competition ready HK?

Recommended Posts

A VP9L set up for production division:

5" barrel

Short reset trigger with over travel stop.

Bigger internal magwel

Bomar style adjustable rear sight, fiber optic front

Get rid of that groove that the trigger passes through and rubs my finger.

This would be the perfect.

Does HK make a gun that will allow lightning fast mag changes?  The paddle release is a horrible idea well executed.  Button releases are where it's at.

Hopefully that is true. I just asked the individual I deal with at HK and they said No. I would hate to think they would keep the team in the dark that much but who knows.

I spoke to one of the German engineers at SHOT. He indicated a long slide VP9 release at NRA and  a factory extended mag laster in 2017.

Nice! I like the VP9 more than the PPQ because it just fits my hands perfectly and the trigger good. I would prefer an American style mag realize because it's a subconscious manipulation after all of these years but I am sure HK will stick with their style. Aftermarket springs and guide rod options would be great.

I do not have a clue when they will be released. I didn't even know they were in the works. Learned from Instagram that they were being released in Europe.

I would like to see one. Not necessarily own one.

Sorry to resurrect an old thread. I’ve been looking to get an USP Expert. In HK’s description it says USP Expert was developed especially for target shooters.

I wonder how many people actually use it in competitions?

Ive been shooting pistol matches for several years now and have never seen an Expert used in any match and that would include IDPA, USPSA, NRA Action Pistol, and steel challenge.  I have an Expert in .45 and while its impressively accurate Ive never been tempted to use it in a match.

@dave33, thanks for the reply. Since you actually have an Expert and have years of competition experiences, may I ask why you’ve not used it in competition? FYI, I’ve just ordered one but haven’t gotten it yet. It won’t hurt my feeling even if it’s not suited for competition in comparison to other choices.

Most of the comps I shoot are better suited to 9mm (at least for me) so my Expert in .45 is at a big disadvantage from the get go.  But aside from that it just doesn't swing and point as naturally for me as my other guns do, never been a big fan of the paddle release, and the black on black sights with the combat sight picture don't suit my eye for the gun games so much.  Lastly, for comps I'm not much of a DA/SA trigger guy, so there is that as well.

 

Dont get me wrong, I think its an amazing pistol and built like a tank, I'm sure you will enjoy yours.  I would love to have an Expert in 9mm (probably .40 too) just because I think they are really cool guns but if I did they would sadly most likely end up as safe queens as my .45 sort of has.  I still get around to shooting it occasionally but there's no danger of me wearing it out.

Dave, appreciate your input. Thanks!

 

You are welcome.  Hope you enjoy the new gun, I'm sure it will serve you well.  Please share a range report with us when you get some rounds down the tube, would love to hear your thoughts on it. If you haven't found it yet, there is a pretty good forum dedicated to HK guns, HKpro.com I think is the sight.  Lots of good info and support for HK guns there.

They announced at the Shot Show that they will be bringing into the US the VP9L, and you can also buy a VP9L Kit that you can put onto your VP9 to make it an L.

P30L optics ready with a match trigger. See about some factory mags that fit the 141mm mark with the package. I'd get with that. I've been debating running my HK45T as a factory pistol for a few matches.

I'm looking for it in the hammer platform, but I think striker is all anyone is going to make anymore. I think my P30L LEM was almost there, but the break just isn't as good as the USP.

 

I'm converting a recently acquired USPf 9mm with match parts, and have the jet funnel for a the mag capacity giggles. It's just not quite there, and I'm not sure if I can justify the cost/benefit ratio of keeping my favorite brand for my USPSA Prodution gun.
