Since we run VP’s as daily CCW guns, staff is always on the lookout for VP9 products, parts, holsters, etc.
So when this popped up in an e-mail, I was left scratching my head. There seem to be some VP slides and frames for sale on the secondary market.
How does this happen?
My first thought is someone Kaboom’ed a gun. But there are multiple frames available. Also it appears these frames are new or almost new. Anyone who has actually carried a pistol every, single, day would likely agree.
Maybe it has something to do with the aftermarket custom shops producing tricked out guns such as, “The Advocate” by Colion Noir? But I would think those packages use complete factory guns as a base. They don’t need a donor slide do they?
Besides, modern striker guns like the Hk have the slide and frame serialized to match. Switching major components on this type of gun turns it into a “parts gun”. I don’t think too many gun owners would much care for that.
So…it begets the question again: How does this happen? Where are these complete frames coming from? I am legitimately hoping someone educates me.
