HK VP9 Completes Law Enforcement Review

The National Institute of Justice (NIJ) administers the NIJ Compliance Testing Program (NIJ CTP) to determine whether a specific pistol model is compliant with NIJ Standard 0112.03, Autoloading Pistols for Police Officers, Revision A. This is to ensure the pistols purchased and used by law enforcement agencies will perform as expected.

Heckler & Koch (HK) has announced that the NIJ completed the rigorous evaluation of its VP9 and met the highest standards set by the NIJ Compliance Testing Program. According to the international firearms manufacturer, the VP9 pistol underwent thorough scrutiny, including both documentation review and comprehensive testing. The NIJ determined that the VP9 complied with all applicable requirements, making it a reliable and effective choice for law enforcement professionals.

“We’re thrilled to share that the VP9 pistol aced the NIJ evaluation process. Our commitment to quality, safety, and performance remains our core focus. The VP9 is here to back those who protect and serve,” said Jason Whitten, law enforcement sales manager at HK.

The VP9 is the third striker-fired pistol that HK has produced. First introduced in 2014, it features a Picatinny rail, ambidextrous controls, a hammer-forged polygonal barrel, and changeable back and side straps.

Heckler & Koch’s well-known range of products includes the USP series pistols, the MP5 submachine gun, the MP7 Personal Defense Weapon, the G36 weapon system, the HK416 enhanced carbine, HK45, P30, and most recently VP series pistols. HK is now encouraging law enforcement agencies and officers to consider the VP9 a trusted sidearm.
