PPQ as an issued firearm

Sponsored Links
Does anyone know if the PPQ is an issued standard sidearm to military or police forces anywhere in the world?

The Germans, English, and the Dutch have always had a fondness for Walther products.

Just curious. This is such a great pistol it must be an issue-standard somewhere.

Not the Germans for sure. If memory serves, their laws require police to have a firearm with a DA/SA trigger mechanisim, or DAO with a trigger pull of at least 8lbs for the first shot. It's a satety thing. I'm sure that someone who knows better than I will be along shortly.

Where you at Tanfoglio?

That is correct. German regs would not allow a standard PPQ as a duty police sidearm.

The Netherlands Government have ordered approximately 43,000 Walther P99Q's to replace their Walther P5 police pistols. The P99Q is equipped per Dutch specs.

It is my understanding that the PPQ was introduced as a sport/target version whose sales could help offset production/tooling costs for the Dutch contract P99Q.

If that's the case then we really lucked out!

As for agency contracts, it doesn't help that the PPQ is a SAO pistol. Off the top of my head, I can't think of any large departments that issue any SAO pistols. A DA trigger pull seems to be a usual requirement for agency contracts.

It's too bad as the PPQ is better than most issue pistols out there IMO but then again there doesn't seem to be alot of emphasis on pistols even in LE

It would be cool if they sold the P5's on the surplus market!

Unfortunately I'm also given to understand that all but the 20-30 that went to Dutch collectors will be shredded.

That's wrong. Not a conspiracy theorist or anything, but if that's true, I wonder if the UN has anything to do with it.
