H&K Announces FDE And Tactical VP Models

Thursday, August 18th, 2016

Columbus, Georgia – Two new models of Heckler & Koch’s VP striker fired pistol have been added to the company line-up this summer. New Flat Dark Earth (FDE) colored frame variants and threaded barrel “Tactical models” join the renowned VP family of 9 mm and .40 caliber pistols.

The new VP FDE models are manufactured using special colorants added to the frame during the molding process and are available in both 9 mm (VP9) and .40 caliber (VP40). The color frame cannot fade or chip and is unaffected by chemicals, sun, and exposure to the elements. FDE models have all of the highly regarded VP features-with the addition of their colored frames. Flat Dark Earth is a tan/brown color scheme that has gained favor among many military and security units in recent years.

The VP Tactical models (available in both 9 mm and .40 S&W) are also identical to standard HK VP pistols, except for the addition of premium grade threaded barrels -only their weights and lengths differ due to the longer and slightly heavier threaded barrel.

The threaded barrels are manufactured at HK’s Oberndorf factory in southwest Germany, using the legendary Heckler & Koch cold-hammer forging process. HK cold hammer forged barrels -made from proprietary cannon grade steel -are well known for their long service life. Similar HK barrels on P30 models have fired more than 90,000 rounds in endurance tests.

“Adding color frame models and VPs with threaded barrels is our response to the many customer requests we received on this phenomenal handgun,”said Michael Holley, HK-USA Vice President for Commercial Sales and Marketing. “Look for us to continue fleshing out the VP Series with customer-driven product improvements. The VP is one of HK’s most successful handguns. Its ‘precise pull’trigger is recognized as industry-leading. VP pistols are accurate, rugged, safe, easy to fit to any shooter’s hand -and they’re fun guns to shoot.”

Both the VP FDE color frame models and the VP Tactical models are made completely in HK’s Oberndorf factory in southwest Germany using all of the company’s advanced technologies for barrel manufacturing, as well as production of the machined steel slide, polymer frame, and all internal components. HK VP pistols are competitively priced and covered by Heckler & Koch’s lifetime warranty.

H&K Debuts SP5K at NRA Annual Meeting

Thursday, May 19th, 2016

The NRA’s Annual Meeting kicks off tomorrow morning in Louisville, Kentucky, and along with it, H&K brings a semi-auto version of the iconic MP5K to the American Market.

Dubbed the SP5K, you’ll notice a few changes from the original. For example, there’s a button-style mag release which was used so that full auto trigger packs can’t be easily installed. Also, the top incorprates a Picatinny rail and it has the old SP89-style handguard.


Here is their press release:

Heckler & Koch is introducing the new SP5K pistol at the 2016 NRA Annual Meeting and Exposition in Louisville, Kentucky. A semi-automatic pistol based on the MP5K, the all-new 9 mm SP5K was developed by Heckler & Koch as a sporting pistol that matches the look and feel of the famous submachine gun. 

Designed and manufactured as a civilian pistol, the SP5K marks the return of the roller delayed blowback operating system to an HK commercial product. This system is well-known for its accuracy and reliability. Originally developed on the G3 rifle, it has been used on many of Heckler & Koch’s most memorable firearms of the last 60 years.

“The SP5K is a unique and historic HK pistol that captures the essence of the legendary MP5K but as a semi-auto handgun,”said Michael Holley, HK-USA Vice President for Commercial Sales and Marketing. “It’s equipped with a special ergonomic handguard that protects the shooter’s supporting hand and enables a stable and comfortable grip. A bungee cord sling is also included and makes shooting an SP5K easy. It’s a fun gun to shoot and goes a long way in recreating the experience of handling and firing a real MP5 subgun.”

The SP5K duplicates the quality and fine details of the MP5, including its precision machined components. The same cold-hammer forged barrel used on the MP5K is found on the SP5K, ensuring a service life of tens of thousands of rounds. The SP5K is manufactured completely in Heckler & Koch’s Oberndorf factory in southwest Germany.

As a large size handgun that uses the proven roller delayed blowback system, the SP5K’s inherent accuracy makes it an excellent choice for target shooting and an ideal household security arm.

A wide variety of accessories can be added to increase its functionality. A Picatinny rail scope mount is attached to the upper receiver and allows optional sights to be easily mounted. The SP5K also comes “ready-for-action”in a custom-fitted, lockable, high-quality carrying case.

Covered by Heckler & Koch’s limited lifetime warranty, the HK SP5K is a faithful rendering of the iconic MP5K as a semi-automatic pistol. Projected availability is July 2016 with a MSRP of $2699.

Be sure to visit booth #3215 to see the SP-5K along with the new Flat Dark Earth (FDE) VPs models in 9mm and .40 S&W.

Could It Be? A Commercial HK MP5K?

Friday, May 6th, 2016

As you may recall, during IWA I showed you the new civilian legal MP5 variants referred to as SP5 which H&K released to German civilians (anyone remember the SP89?). 

Word I got was that it was going to happen here in the US at NRA Annual Meeting as well. Let’s cross our fingers.
