I expect it to not only be bad ass, but also look the part.
Congratulations on your new acquisition. Please post pictures after you have completed all the modifications so that the rest of us can drool over them!

But seriously, I'd like to see what the finished job looks like since I may go down the same route you have.

I didn't know how much I'd like it but the ugly FDE is starting to grow on me. It's just different.



Sku # 81000184 comes from the HK factory with the brown slide. My only concern was the quality of the cerakoting but it looks like HK was responsible (although a 3rd party may have been involved) and it was done right.

Hope to have it done in 2-3 months or so as money becomes available; depending on wait list for the machinist (some places are a 4+ month wait).

Congrats! 9mm is a fun caliber. Ammo is still relatively inexpensive, easy to find and comes in a large selection of bullet weights/styles. It's very pleasant to shoot and easy to shoot well in a pistol like the VP9SK. I still like to shoot the big stuff, too, but when I plan to have a long range session, 9mm is usually what I grab.

Congrats! I'm not planning to make any modifications to mine, right away, since it'll mostly be for HD and range fun (only) while I still live in MD. Whenever I relocate to free America, it'll be a carry pistol. It's nice to have options, though! The VP9SK sure seems inherently accurate enough for casual competition and your proposed upgrades would be ideal for that. Be sure to post-up some pics when it's all done!

Is it even offered in DAO? Sounds to me like you want a P30SK instead.
