Whether you’re looking to purchase a handgun to sit in your nightstand or to ride your hip, the Walther PPQ should be a major contender. The Walther PPQ M2 is semi-automatic striker-fired handgun available in 9mm, 40 S&W, 45 ACP, and .22 LR. The frame of the Walther PPQ is made from polymer allowing for a sculpted ergonomic grip and interchangeable backstraps for a customized hand fit. The frame of the PPQ features a short Picatinny rail section for mounting tactical lights or lasers. The slide is made from stainless steel with front/rear racking serrations and coated in Walther’s Tenifer™ coating to prevent corrosion.
The Walther PPQ M2 foregoes the European style paddle magazine release for an ambidextrous magazine release just behind the trigger guard—if the paddle magazine release is more your thing, the PPQ Classic (or M1) is still in production. The PPQ does not feature a manual safety on any model but does have two drop safeties and a firing pin block to give you piece of mind when carrying the PPQ. The Walther PPQ is considered to have one of the best factory triggers on the market. Walther refers to the PPQ’s trigger as the Quick Defense Trigger, it has an ultra-smooth 5.6 lb. pull with only .4” inches of travel and .1” trigger reset that allows for fast and accurate follow up shots.
There are now several models of the PPQ of varying sizes, calibers, and features ensuring that there’s a PPQ that will appeal to anyone looking for a striker-fired handgun.Weight: 21.2 oz. (empty mag)
