Heckler & Koch’s VP9 pistol has proved very popular among women, and even more so since the release of the “B” model, which offers a push-button magazine release instead of the H&K paddle release—a feature many women indicated they did not prefer when surveyed in our NRA Women's first Ladies Pistol Project.

Now Davidson’s has announced its latest Exclusive pistol produced in conjunction with Heckler & Koch—a VP9 with a gray polymer frame, offering a striking contrast juxtaposed to the H&K black finished machined steel slide with front and rear serrations.

The push-button magazine release is reversible, while the slide lock is completely ambidextrous, as are HK’s patented charging supports—simple components that are mounted on each side of the rear of the slide, and providing better gripping leverage for racking the slide rearward. The charging supports speed reloading and make operating the VP9 easier for shooters with reduced hand strength. The VP9 pistols uses the proven P30 steel magazine and this Davidson’s Exclusive comes with two 17-round magazines.

HK’s famous cold hammer forged barrel—made from cannon grade steel—ensures long service life. The polygonal bore profile, with no traditional lands-and-grooves rifling, contributes to longer service life as well as a slight increase in muzzle velocity.

The Exclusive VP9 includes three interchangeable backstraps in a matching gray polymer, green luminous front dot sight, serrated blacked-out rear sight, picatinny rail, and mag loader.

Manufacturer: Heckler & Koch 
Model: VP9 (B)
Item # 81000782

Barrel: 4.06” hammer-forged with polygonal rifling
Overall length: 7.34”
