Introducing the HK VP40

VP40

Say hello to the HK VP40.

The VP40 is a striker-fired pistol with a polymer frame. Closely resembling the original VP9, the VP40 shares many of the same features and innovations of the original handgun. Lets go over a few of these, plus talk about some of the differences…

HK G36 .22 Rifle from Walther

HK G36 Walther Replica

Walther is introduced a HK G36 replica rifle chambered in .22 LR at the 2015 Industry Day at the Range (aka Media Day.)

The new rifle is officially licensed by HK and retains the looks and relative feel of the G36. I had a chance to spend some time with one at the range and put some rounds through the gun.

Here are the details on the gun and my first impressions…

HK45 Tactical

HK45 Tactical Suppressor

HK announced the introduction of the HK45 Tactical to the civilian market.  It looks like you will be able to get them in all sorts of tactical colors and with a threaded barrel.

Probably the oddest thing about this product announcement is that the HK45 Tactical is shown in a photograph with a “dummy” sound suppressor and is captioned “depiction of suppressor does not constitute endorsement.”  Huh?  Do they not endorse the use of eye protection either?

H&K MR762A1 Rifle

Heckler & Koch brought some new toys to Media Day 2012. The rifle that caught my attention the most was the new H&K MR762A1. This rifle is the 7.62 mm version modeled after the company’s MR556A1, which is chambered in 5.56 mm. This is the civilian model of the H&K 416 that was developed for military and law enforcement use.

HK MR762A1

The rifle sports the H&K gas piston system, ambidextrous features, and 10-round standard polymer magazines with the ability to accept the 20-round versions designed for the 416. The MR762A1 also offers a whole lot more.
