    HK VP9 or VP9L with SRO

    Anyone have a VP9 or VP9L milled or an OR model with a Trijicon SRO?

    I currently have an RMR and I am leaning towards an SRO but afraid it might be too far forward.

    cant speak to milled, but OR does not appear to be good. Sat it on there, never fired. Running holosun, very happy with it.

    I threw an SRO 2.5 onto my compensated and magwell equipped VP9 OR ďgame gunĒ today. It sighted in with NO adjustment needed at 25 yards, with my normal 147 grain CCI Lawman FP training rounds, which was quite remarkable (and similar to my experience with 3 RMRís on three other VP9 ORís). It seems that out of the box, the RMR and the SRO are both very close to zeroed on the HK OR plates.

    I was concerned about trying this because the front lip of the SRO is awfully close to the back of the ejector port.

    After 400 rounds, there are a few brass marks on the optic, nothing on the lens, and a few brass marks on the top of the locking block. Iíve never seen this with an RMR, particularly the brass marks on the barrel hood.

    Obviously the SRO optic body is doing some deflection of brass onto the top of the pistol, on occasion.

    Still, zero issues after 200 rounds of CCI Lawman 147, and 200 rounds of CCI 115 training ammo (white box).

    But I sure will be keeping an eye on this. If no issues develop, Iím considering running it for part of a week-long class coming up this fall.

    very nice setup...do the iron sights clear the optic and front sight post to be useable? Looks like like they barely do from your photo.

    For those looking for an image of the SRO on the VP9 OR:

    The group was offhand, 25 yards, 147 grain CCI Lawman TMJ-FP, right after mounting, with no adjustments.

    Functionality

    How many rounds you have through it set up with the SRO?

    Any malfunctions or issues?

    Total of 400, 200 CCI 115 ball and 200 147 Lawman TMJ-FP. No malfunctions or other issues except some brass marks in unusual places, as noted above.

    I will report back after 1000 rounds.

    1000 rounds in and no issues. So, went ahead with SRO install on the newest items as well. Optics ready VP9-Lís. They run nicely, too.

    Just a follow up- 1600 rounds through the VP9 with SRO after a Gunsite range day. Zero issues (except a couple false dots in the SRO window with the sun overhead).
