Manta, I have no experience with the firearm, but I would certainly be interested in it as a collector piece.

No experience. I read that the trigger is heavy. Not a popular gun around here— outdated and no historical value.

Which came first, the Hi Point or the VP07z?
For the heaviest trigger? They are not in the same league price wise. Nobody complains about the HiP trigger. One guy in Indy shoots his in bowling pin matches and does well. I’ve never seen a VP in a match of any kind.

They are more a collector's gun, i doubt you will see one in a competition unless maybe historic. A good one to show to Glock fans, who think Glock was the first polymer production pistol.

Which pistol was the inspiration for the other. Is the VP a Hi Point clone? :p

Volkspistole

VP stands for Volkspistole (literally "People's Pistol"), and the designation 70 was for the first year of production: 1970.

Yes if the showing is worth a £600
investment.

One of my friends had one.
As Stated, one of the first military caliber pistols with a polymer frame. Trigger is weird, long straight rearward pull which is heavy. Non-tilting barrel contributed to accuracy though. Military and police versions had a shoulder stock which allowed it to run in full auto.

interesting piece in the world of pistol development. Proved validity of polymer frames, and that high capacity (20 rounds). Probably quite an inspiration to the designers at Glock.
