We’ve got a great video for you this week on the Vickers Tactical Channel. I break down one of, if not the, most accurate pistols I’ve ever shot, the Heckler & Koch SFP9L-OR, or Optics Ready Long-Slide version. Known also as the VP9 here in the states, this is not only a fantastic firearm to check out but this one in particular is going to be my new training pistol for 2021.

wow, what a nice pistol, thanks
I believe they are referred to as “SFP” because civilians in Europe are not allowed to own firearms that have been adopted by the Military/Police (VP9 being the model that has been adopted)
Larry, this handgun was originally called the *Volkspistole* ("people’s pistol", VP) 9 but was later rebranded as the *Striker Fired Pistol* (SFP) 9 in Europe. So amusingly, it’s still designated by a German acronym in the US, while using an English acronym in Germany…
Edit: I sincerely hope you’ll get better soon!
Hi Larry, just wanted to say how healthy you are looking these days, I’m a long time subscriber but been away from the Channel for a while.
Keep dosing what you’re doing man. It’s working.
Who is shooting competition when 9mm is $0.70/round (if you can find it).
Oh you reload? that’s cool… where do you get your powder and primers?
Very Cyberpunk 2077
Excellent video as always sir! Keep up the good work and glad to see you’re on the mend!
What a fine pistol, top notch quality, love the aimpoint going on here
does it come with the large red dot optic ?
One of the only guns where I’ve seen him crack a smile.
Larry Vickers what are you going to do when radical liberal YouTube takes down your channel,and then Joe Biden and the democrats ban guns?
Just heard about your AFT troubles. Hope all turns out okay. Thoughts and prayers Delta.
Good evening Sir,
VP = Volkspistole may sound too much like Nazi, which is why we prefer to use the English term "Striker Fired Pistol" SFP in Europe…. Greets from Austria 🙂
Slide speaks Walther
Is it worth getting the Optics Ready version if you may or may not ever use an optic? Are there any key differences beside the optic mount of the slide it seems like the iron sight is different then the standard SFP9L.
Beautiful blaster! The HKparts enhanced slide cap with no witness hole and the enhanced magazine release are both worthwhile upgrades.
take long shots while hot
Love H&K hand guns! The VP9 and VP9 SK are amazing!
I’ve competed with a 2020 SFPL OR PB with a HS 507C V2 Green and it is very fast , very accurate and reliable
It has less flip than the standard VP9 and based on my 25 yd groups – I’d say that O- ring is a factor – zero malfunctions with over 3000 rnds thru it – can’t say it’s really more accurate than my tuned up 9 mm 1911 but it’s close – It definitely does have the best modular grip system of any polymer striker fired gun by far and that can be a huge factor in recoil management
Why accuracy not demonstrated???
I was able to pick up the vp9 L kit a couple months ago however for the life of me, I cannot find an RMR mounting plate anywhere 😡
The music made me thought about Modern Warfare 3.
Why is it everytime i see larry vickers , i get reminded of adler from cod black ops cold war?
Nicely done Larry good reviews as always, quick question if you can get to it, how much are the classes for rifles and handguns for all platforms and where are you guys located
Larry looks amazing these days! Good work dude!!!!
Great video Sir. I have all 3 of the VP9’s and I agree there awesome and extremely accurate
I like those close up slow mos. The soundtrack is cheesy AF though
H&K didn’t use the VP9 designation in EU because Brügger & Thomet (B&T) produces a VP9 suppressed pistol, designed for farm and veterinary use. It’s effectively the old WWII Welrod pistol with an additional safety, and instructions on how to effectively dispatch cattle or other animals with it’s 9×19 chambering.
I’m surprised you’ve never done a video on the USP.
Hey Larry watch out ATF IS OUTSIDE UR DOOR 😂😂😂
That thing is sweet.
Have you handled any of the Canik pistols? Also what are your thoughts on the holosun closed emitter red dot for us folks who are a little strapped for cash
Definitely not the same pistol as the FN 509LS Edge…
So sick, I’m gonna have to track LAV down and take him up on his word.
Is that what John Wick uses?
My buddy just got one of these.
I agree gun shoots extremely well. That O ring is the difference. With Liberty optic mounted ,shot 10 round group of about 4 inch group at 50 yards on B27. Ammo use was 147 grain Federal flat nose. The group would have been sub 4 if did not have a flyer. The gun is stock , may try the lovo trigger.
I’d love to see a P7 episode.
LAV: “It is so accurate, it is scary.”
Me: “But it’s not a Glock.”
LV is great but saying its the most accurate pistol he has ever shot tells me he has not shot enough good pistols lol im going to get slaughtered for this statement
My HKVP9SK is currently with Rick getting full trigger job. I can’t wait to get it back.
Why do I love these videos so much?
It would be critical to call it VP9 in Germany ( VolksPistole9).
Walther ppq wannabe
I’d have to say that you’re accurate, not the gun. Good fundamentals. Nice gun BTW.
If you have a gun smith mill a slide for an optic, it voids the warranty.
Hello! Thanks for an amazing video! I tried many guns, even my HK VP9L , but I still couldn’t find more accurate gun than my Glock 17L. I do my best with Glock 17L only. Just my opinion.
