It seems there are more questions then answers but I guess time/Walther will tell.

Maybe they will offer a top only option for the 5 inch slide to put on the PPQ now.

I just noticed that the 5" slide is ported!! That relegates it to purely a range/gamer gun.

I doubt it is actually fully ported. Probably just cut in for weight saving.

Agreed.

Much like the way the .40S&W slide is longer on the PPQ and the nose of the slide is wider on the P99. It's just like that to save weight so that the slide cycles in correct time & energy.

Why no ports on a CC weapon? Just because something may fall into the port and obstruct the slide?

The reason no ports on a carry weapon is because if it gets near your eye,possible severe damage.If it changes to a grapple vs gunfight(multiple assailants),the port becomes a negative in my opinion.Try shooting any ported pistol with something that can move next to it and see how far it does travel.

So other than the mag release and the option of a 5" barrel, what is so different from the original PPQ? I'll have to pass because Walther made me fall in love with the paddle release on the original PPQ.

You're probably right, just like a Glock G34/35.

Back on page 2.... Reading comprehension, it's useful
