A lot of folks out there really like the H&K’s new striker fired pistol, the VP9. It feels great in your hands and shoots very accurate. But before you get one and fully trust your life with it, let’s find out how reliable it is by doing some torture tests. Thinking you’ll never go through such harsh environments or situations where your gun gets thrown, don’t be so sure that it will never happen. I never like to jump on a new product that just gets introduce in to the market. It needs to have a longer track record. I would say at least 4 years (but that’s a person preference) just like with the the M&P Shield. On the other hand, the Glock 43 is probably on great reliable gun but it just came out.
This torture test was done by The Military Arms Channel.
Can the VP9 take a beating and still function like the Smith & Wesson M&Ps and Glocks? Time to find out!
