HK VP9 Thumb Rest Lever by Align Tactical
The Align Tactical® THUMB REST TAKEDOWN LEVER is compatible with all HK® VP9/VP40/SFP9® standard and long slide pistols (Except VP9SK® (Sub-Compact). Hardened S7 tool steel part finished in Black Oxide. Approved for USPSA Production. Made in USA with lifetime warranty.
*Holster selection requires clearance for extended ledge. Refer to Align Tactical's Compatible Holster Manufacturers for select models from Black Scorpion Gear, Werkz light-bearing, Long's Shadow Holster, Red Hill Tactical, and Lytton Custom holsters.
The Align Tactical® THUMB REST TAKEDOWN LEVER integrates an ergonomic ledge for the support hand's thumb to firmly lock down against, serving as a brake against muzzle flip to provide the fastest follow-up sight picture. Increased surface contact with the pistol reduces support hand slippage while providing an index point for a consistent high thumbs-forward grip. Swaps in seconds to offer maximum control and speed in Heckler & Koch® VP9® pistols for a competitive edge.
Complementing the VP9® compatible takedown lever is a thumb rest that extends 30 degrees forward of the center of rotation, directing applied pressure (counter clockwise) towards the over-travel stop to rigidly remain locked in place. When used in the opposite direction (clockwise) for disassembly, rotation is easy with a simple pinch and turn of the ledge.
Establishing a two-handed grip creates a naturally angled cant of one’s support hand thumb. Incorporating a secondary receiving slope of 15 degrees allows for evenly distributed thumb pressure and serves as a guide for settling into proper contact position (with the thumb print pressed flat onto the rest).
The Align Tactical® THUMB REST TAKEDOWN LEVER protrudes less than 0.4 inches (10mm) from the grip module for a comfortably slim footprint that creates approximately half a thumb's width of effective resistance area. Horizontal serrations offer excellent traction against recoiling muzzle rise without being abrasive. Perfectly sized with aesthetics to match.

Rise to the Top
Starting stages with a tabled pistol can make it challenging to get a grip, so we’ve given you a hand. Unloaded (without magazine), the ledge wedges a lightened pistol grip into the air for unobstructed grabbing, leaving the competition grounded. Inserting a loaded magazine drops the grip back down and shields Extended OEM Magazine Button Releases from being pressed by raising it off the table.
Hardened S7 Tool Steel
We selected the toughest shock-resistant steel and then hardened it for maximum strength and durability
