HK VP9 Brass Backstrap


The Death Grip HK VP9 Backstrap from Taylor Freelance features checkering across the entire grip surface. The backstrap is made from brass to help improve grip and reduce perceived recoil.

Finished in Black Cerakote®.


The Taylor Freelance HK VP9 “Death Grip” Backstrap features additional checkering and more weight than the OEM and other aftermarket backstraps for the VP9.

The backstrap is great for those shooting USPSA, IDPA or during any competition or qualification.

VP9 Backstrap Features

  • Machined from bar stock H02 Brass
  • Ridiculous volumes of high-traction checkering cut into each piece (not cast) for maximum “grip” and control
  • Built-in mount point for factory and Taylor Freelance magwells (typical “tailhook” style)
  • It lowers the center of gravity for better balance, calmer handling and makes the gun less top-heavy

Weight and felt recoil are directly related. A lightweight gun calms down by adding weight, creating a smoother-shooting, slower-kicking, more-neutrally-balanced handgun. Brass is best in most situations, but if you carry the gun all day, you will find brass components add weight and are less comfortable for all-day carry.

Many parts sold by Grayguns - including but not limited to triggers, trigger kits, internal components and spring kits - are intended for installation by a qualified armorer or gunsmith who is familiar with the firearm.

Although kits fit with no issues in a great majority of pistols, Grayguns cannot guarantee perfect functionality in every instance.

Due to varying tolerances present in all mass-produced firearms, professional fitting by a qualified armorer who is familiar with the pistol's action may be required.

Grayguns offers installation services for all parts kits we offer. If you have any issues or questions about the installation process, STOP IMMEDIATELY and contact the Grayguns Customer Service Team.
