For those who don't like the paddle release HK is releasing the VP9 B. Which stands for button release.

I've been a fan of the paddle release since I bought a Walther P99 back almost 15 years ago. So easy once you get used to it after enough practice.

Nice to have a choice, although I like the paddle release a lot better.

I have a long slide kit on the way to review. Looking forward to trying it out to see what it can do.

Longslide holster compatibility for 2A products.

Go 1) Pancake
2) Outdoorsman

NoGo 1) IWB
2) Molle with light would need to be modified for a proper fit IMO.

I like the kit so far very accurate and no malfunctions.

You might, but your gal is stellar at photos.

Post photos and show us this X-tended slide then contrast/compare o' wordy-one!

Liking the Long slide so far. First 100 rounds it was throwing brass in my face like a Glock. Next 200 rounds putting brass in a nice pile. 100% reliable dropped it in sand no issues. Good accuracy past 25 yards if I do my part.
I'm going to go on a limb and say a optic ready one will probably come out soon. Once the Germans do their typical over engineering.

I did predict in my article HK would over engineer the optic cut.

I have replaced my G19 with my VP9 for EDC. (It’s all GPCs fault) Only issue I have is the price of mags sucks.
