According to the press release, the VP9 grey is manufactured by Heckler & Koch using special colorants which are added to the frame during the molding process. These color frame models won’t fade or chip, and they’re unaffected by chemicals, sun and exposure to the elements. In short, these pistols are built to last and look the part.
“We continue to add to the VP family of handguns as a response to customer requests,” said Michael Holley, HK-USA Vice President for Commercial Sales and Marketing. “The VP Series is one of HK’s most successful handguns and continues to grow in popularity with it’s ‘precise pull’ trigger, recognized as industry-leading.”
