    Optics planet is listing it as shipping in 7-14 days… at close to fifty clams for a box of twenty.

    There’s a roll pin in the back strap and a connector lug on the mag well visible in the images, so I’m sure it is.

    THIS is why I always wait at least a year before jumping on a new pistol. Looks like a number of things they perhaps should have done, out of the gate.

    Hope the magwell is removable.

    The new Optics ready VP9SK… accompanied by a small portion of the now-legendary social media snark from HK. Nice to see it (the snark) back again.

    Yup, sure does. Both my Hammerli and HK416 versions of this action will do 0.14-0.16 quite consistently- the takeup and resets are very good on both of those. I’m sure with a bit of trigger time...

    I’m sure you’re right, but their shipping charges are considerably out of line from the suppliers I normally use. Pity.

    The only credible reviews I’ve found tag the trigger weight, out of the box, at 7-8 lbs. with a fairly long take up. So, it sounds pretty similar to the Umarex pieces I have. As mentioned, you can...
