Default HK VP9 POLICE

Local shop has a new VP9 LE MODEL. Other than 3 magazines instead of two, is it the same as any other VP9?

LE has tritium night sights instead on the standard tru-glo sticker sights.

I been with Glock 9mm for over 20 years . Gen 2/3/4 . VP9 does not seem as rugged but trigger is better

Little off subject of the LE vs non LE model topic but it's your thread. I shoot both vp9 and glock 41, prefer my VP9 for some reason.

VP9 owner here. Not much experience with Glocks but the VP9 has vastly better ergonomics and a great trigger. My only complaint with my VP9 is the lower mag capacity (15) versus the Glock 17 (17) even though the pistol are roughly the same size. The magazines are also pricey, as with all HK pistols.

Unless one is exempt the magazine capacity doesn't matter in CA though.

Clocks are fine weapons. I just don't like 'em. I'm an HK fan from way back. When I made the switch from 45 to 9, I went with the VP9. I got an LE (Night sites and third mag) under SSE while I could. Now I could sell mine used for twice what I paid for it new. As much as I love CA, we do some goofy things from a regulatory standpoint.
