True. The Beretta 92 was designed in 1975, but commerical production began in 1976. Good point. I never even thought of the VP70. I suppose because of the rifle stock and the three round burst feature it occupies the 'machine-pistol" category in my mind. However, it could be considered a wonder-nine if you disregard those things and it is true that H&K made it for both the military and commerical markets.
