SSVI & SilencerCo VP9-Osprey 9K Summit Package

Repeat after me: ‘I am not a hipster’. Ok, maybe you are – as long as you don’t shun or scoff my firearm choices. we won’t have any problems. In fact, let’s have a soy latte, wear some flannel and sit on some firewood. After that, we’ll grab our SilencerCo/SSVI VP9 Summit Series and shoot some recycled targets while listening to vinyl records. That’s the feeling I get every time I surf SiCo’s webpage, anyway. (I kid. I kid. Luv U SiCo. Call me.)

Ok, maybe I’m just jealous – the SSVI Summit package is beautifully designed and executed. I really like the weathered ammo can storage and the battle-worn finish done by the artists at BlownDeadline Customs. Like the previous Summit series, each one is a collectible piece that is unique and only available for a limited time.

All reports to date show that the VP9 is an excellent suppressor host. And if you’re well-heeled, the SSVI/Osprey combo is a complete kit for your silencing pleasure. And yes, you read that right: this is an Osprey 9K – until now the only pint-sized Osprey was in the 45 caliber flavor.

More details below.

SSVI VP9 & SilencerCo Osprey Package @TFB

SSVI VP9 & SilencerCo Osprey Package @TFB

The HK® VP9® is an ergonomic, classically German pistol that combines comfort with utilitarianism. When Damon Young from SSVi™ first got his hands on one, this death metal drummer turned artisan knew he had to make it his own. The SSVi Signature Series VP9 quickly became one of their most iconic modification packages, with the lines of the VP9 lending themselves seamlessly to SSVi’s recognizable style.

SilencerCo teamed up with the self-proclaimed “Modern Day Mjolnir” to create one of the most iconic Summit packages to date. Not only does it feature hand crafted customization by SSVi and unique-to-each-model finishing by Blowndeadline – this package also includes a silencer that you can’t buy anywhere else: the Osprey 9K.

Summit VP9 & Osprey SPECIFICATIONS:

  • SSVi Signature Series VP9
  • Blowndeadline Battleworn Matching Finish on Osprey 9K and VP9
  • SilencerCo Threaded Barrel
  • Black Nitrided 1/2×28 Piston
  • Heinie™ VP9 Suppressor Sights
  • Hand-Aged Ammo Can Carrying Case
  • Two Magazines
  • All HK Factory Accessories Included

    I think the fashion pundits killed the Hipster last year.

    • Vitsaus

      Hipsters don’t die, they simply mutate into more resistant strains.

      • M.M.D.C.

        Apparently they have. They’re now called Yuccies. Something to do with creativity and urban dwelling – whatever – but they look like hipsters who maybe have more money.

  • thedonn007

    This looks to be about twice the price of buying the VP9, Osprey 9, and threaded barrel separately. Seems to be an expensive paint job and rusty ammo can.

    • Havok

      Don’t forget the work done by SSVI

      • thedonn007

        Yea, and I left out the suppressor height sights too. Although I am not sure what customization SSVI did to the VP9.

        • Havok

          Seriously? Slide milling and grip work.

      • Dr. Longfellow Buchenrad

        Ok that and 2 cans of duracoat.

  • PK

    $2,000 worth of paint and marketing on an otherwise reasonably priced setup. Unless you’re in love with that specific branding, it would be far cheaper to assemble it yourself!

  • Theo Braunohler

    Anyone who buys this is an idiot. If you really want it, wait a year. It’ll be half price after dealers and distributors slash the price like they did with their retarded Nighthawk package because nobody could even sell a single one at the original suggested price.

    • Pete – TFB Writer

      I’m not sure that’s fair. Someone with a hefty income may like this package and may not want to wait a year. Just because it’s too expensive for me, doesn’t mean it can’t work for someone else.

      If you like it, no money wasted here. Functional, collectable art. Limited run.

      • Vitsaus

        I suppose if I had 10 million in the bank, I wouldn’t care about spending $50 on a can of diet coke.

        • Pete – TFB Writer

          Believe me, I’m tracking. But some can impulse buy this package. Whereas I impulse buy 50rnds of .22LR. 🙂

      • Disarmed in CA

        I like the finish, but the heft of my income precludes purchasing it, as well as the heft of the CA Roster…

      • Cymond

        And that’s how it should be viewed: as art, not as a utilitarian/defensive/range/whatever gun.

        And in my view, it’s about as collectible as the junk from Franklin Mint or Beanie Babies. Collectibles made as collectibles rarely are.

    • Dan

      So someone that has the money to buy what they want is an idiot for spending it how they see fit?
      Hmmm.. interesting

    • Pigsnguns

      I personally sold multiple Nighthawk Summit packages at the original asking price. We did not sell out but it was a great success. Just sold another 2 a couple days ago. As for price, we did drop the price recently but it wasn’t much. We did this not because sluggish sales but because the packaging for them is massive takes up the same space as almost 20 handguns. I feel that you don’t understand how the Summits work. They don’t go through distributors & dealers. One dealer gets a specific Summit directly from SilencerCo. The same negative comments at price where hurled at SilencerCo for their Noveske & Dakota packages. We sold out of both & same will apply with the Nighthawks. There’s nothing wrong with not wanting to spend a great deal of money on such packages but at the end of the day, there’s value in them. You may not see the value but many do & have acted on it.

      • carlcasino

        I bought one silencer/ suppressor for my 22LR. Rodent hunting the tree rats alarms some of my neighbors and the rodents seem to know when the miscreants are home. One day the ATF will realize that Congress is going to make them as legal as a trigger on a pistol and the price will drop by 75% which is really a good price point for what your’ getting.

        • Pigsnguns

          Just like everything, there will be inexpensive cans & expensive ones. A Hipoint carbine is an affordable & fun gun but people still shell out more for the mpx, mp5, & evos. There’s cans right now that you can get for sub $200 but id rather spend more & get more. There’s a lot of behind the scenes stuff that most people never hear about which is why I wouldn’t hesitate to pay the same money in a non NFA future

  • Mmmtacos

    That lightening cut is the sexiest thing I have seen all day, and I just watched an interview with Ivanka.

  • Why would you ruin the customizable grip panel system on a VP9 like that? Is the paint supposed to be a selling point? What’s the margin on the Osprey 9K?

  • Bill

    Guys used to go into hysterics if they even scratched a gun, and now you can save the effort and buy it pre-defiled

    • iksnilol

      Like buying used car, you worry less.

      Used car not cost as much as new car though.

      -_-

      • Nashvone

        This is more like buying a new car and paying someone else to drive it for you so you can worry less about it.

    • carlcasino

      Have a S&W 38 that is now worthless because I engraved (call it scratched) My Submarine that Is now in 8000 ft. of water with all hands on board. It’s a keepsake to no one but me.

      • iksnilol

        You scratched what into it?

        • carlcasino

          USS Scorpion SSN 589. Shortly after news of the sinking I took my Gift from a Retired Uncle who was a LEO in TX for over 40 years and since I knew the gun would NEVER leave my possession I etched the “Scorpion” on the grip metal strap.
