HK VP9/40 Elite Marksman Kopis
Named after the curved blade of the Spartans, a people who embodied the warrior spirit, the EM Kopis trigger system is equally at home on the battlefield as it is on the competition course. Unleash your HK VP9/40 with a Kopis system and bow down to no man.
The Elite Marksman replaces the factory trigger shoe, trigger bar, sear catch, disconnector, sear spring, and trigger return spring.
A few years back, while I was still on my quest to create a Glock trigger that I could be happy with, I ran across the HK VP9 and Walther PPQ. All the big articles pitted these two guns against each other, and normally they gave huge praise to the triggers in both. I had a PPQ for awhile, and the trigger was nice, but I never found it to be the game changer it was claimed to be. When I came across a VP40 of my own, I found the stories of it’s trigger to be a bit embellished as well…..so down the rabbit hole I went and this is what came of it.
The Elite Marksman for the HK VP9/40 takes a decent trigger, tosses out the factory plastic shoe in exchange for something more comfortable and with enhanced travel characteristics. Next up I looked at the weight of the trigger itself, and while it was relatively light, I knew that with some tuning it could be brought to a level that would be at home in a match ringing steel, or in the hands of a professional where accuracy matters. That was not all, as a mass produced firearm, there was a certain amount of undue friction in the system which did not allow it to live up to it’s potential.
With the components of the Elite Marksman installed, you have a smooth action that meets up to a clean, yet brittle, wall that is easy to shatter at your whim.
The HK VP9/40 is not the same as disassembling a Glock and can be somewhat involved. It is recommended that a skilled gunsmith install this trigger system for best results. Guide to disassembly found here
