Crazy Expensive VP9

You know a pistol has “made it” when custom versions sell for 3-4x their MSRP. Here we have a HK VP9 that is commanding $1700.00!

Wow.

Custom stippling. Slide cuts. RDS

Now before we get into some class-warfare debate, I have been known to pay stupid money for guns and gear. So I don’t have a leg to stand on there. Just ask Freeze (Yes, you’re a douche. —Freeze). But $1700 for a polymer, striker handgun? I just don’t know how I feel about that? But I’ve never bought a $1700 Glock either. And doubt I ever will.

Admittedly, I would like to play with it and see what the experience is like. Maybe learn a few things? Or have my mind changed? For example, why are the internals Ti coated? I think that’s what that is called? But does it help with trigger pull and reset? What difference does that make compared to standard stoning or dry-fire?

$1700. The fact it comes with RDS helps the price somewhat.

Anyway…here you go. A $1700 HK VP9. I suggest you keep this a secret. Don’t want to give HK Germany any ideas about going back to the standard HK MSRP price structure.

The listing is asking for $1700.

    Looks nice, but $1700? I’ll pass thank you. (I’m cheap, I mean frugal) Although I have have spent too much on somethings due to want versus need. That being said, if you get one I’d like to try it. Hahaha.

    kinda reminds me of the Glocks Gabe Suarez has on his site, no disrespect to Gabe I actually think he rocks, but this kind of money for any gun is simply for the collector value and I honestly don;t see the utility of it.

    A Burris Fast Fire on a $1700 Safe Queen? What a crock. The ad should read: I spent a ton of money on ruining a perfectly serviceable VP9 and i still can’t shoot for S… Somebody please bail me out!

    TiN (Titanium Nitride) coated to harden and protect sliding surfaces

    It is a quality finish with some nice properties but I think it often gets applied these days for the look alone, not that there is anything wrong with that…I really like my S3F TiN coated glock barrel.

    • Oh I know what it is. But when you look at the internals it’s being applied on here, it’s realistically a waste. If you are shooting a high-volume gun and want longer barrel life, OK? Sure. On the Trigger ?Sear surfaces? One could make an argument this kinda sets you back.

      You know. A really nice, worn in trigger.

      If you apply it to a trigger setup that has been “fit”, aren’t you messing with the work that was done? And making it hard, if not impossible, to rework it back to where it was?

      And we all know, the trigger mechanisms of striker-guns are famous for their high-friction and wear issues…said none ever.

      Maybe I’m dead wrong? But again, the VP9 comes stock with a FANTASTIC, FANTASTIC trigger already!!!!
