So I have always maintained that my all time favorite pistol of all time is the Sig Sauer P226, and in that line I am most partial to the MK25. I'm seriously thinking of selling or trading my brand new, unfired HK VP9 to get a brand new, unfired MK25. Somebody STOP me before it's too late! STOP THE MADNESS...STOP IT I SAY!!!

How much are you getting for the trade and how much will you have to come up with for the MK25?

The MK25 is superb...I like HK, but I would do that if the price was doable.

I would stay with that VP9 and if you really want the MK25 get it later to keep the VP9 company.
Probably what I will end up doing...I like both guns, a lot, but you know how there is one thing that gets your attention every time you see that thing? The P226 is that for me, but especially the MK25. I love the original German version as well. It's a very close 2nd, and, at times, maybe edges the MK25, but I've about resigned myself to the fact that I'll have to get one of each before it's over. :cool:

The MK25s at my LGS are registering at about $900, and I paid $649 for my LE VP9. I could probably get them to give me what I paid for it, considering I am trading up, or they would come off the MK25 a little for me, but at this point I think it would be better just to put the MK25 on layaway and keep the HK.

I watched a new HK fail yesterday at the range, trigger locked up.

There, that should help you decide.
That is an interesting bit of news. I had a VP9 a could years ago and put about 1500 rounds through it over six months, and it performed well. The only issues I ever had with it was when my thumb locked the slide back when shooting. Aside from that, the gun was flawless, which really isn't a gun issue in my mind. I considered it to be a personal grip issue, which I seem to have corrected at this point. I've changed my grip to a higher position than before, which gives me better control of the gun, and positions my thumb out of the way, so we'll see how it goes.

The first gun I ever bought was a Kel-Tec .40, which is what the manager of the gun and pawn store I frequented in TN carried. Said it was a great gun for the money, so I bought it and went to the range. It jammed on me at least five times in 50 rounds, so I immediately returned to the store and demanded a trade. They agreed to give me what I paid for it, since it was malfunctioning, and I bought a used Sig Sauer P226 (the gun I really wanted to begin with) for $499. This was in 1999, and from that moment in time the P226 became my all-time favorite handgun.

They only reason I do not carry it today, EDC, is b/c I've come to learn that your favorite gun isn't always the best gun for what you need, and the Glock 19 has solidified itself as the perfect GP/EDC/Go to gun on the planet for me. Well, I wouldn't mind getting my hands on that cricket Agent M gave K (Men in Black), but until then I'll have to settle for the 19. :cool: All that to say Signess has been in my veins from the start. I supposed it always will.
