CCP still wonderful

It seems like each time I open this forum, the first thing I read is more questions or comments about the "problems being fixed". I am certainly not here to try to state that these problems are not valid. Just like any car, headphones, tv, or anything else made by a manufacturer, some have issues.
This post is simply to say that not all is horrible with this little wonder gun. Nearing a year and about 3000 rounds, and the only time that we have any issues with ours is if I neglect cleaning it. I typically clean at about 300-400 rounds. It is every bit as accurate (if not more so) than my Sig P365, and the ergonomics are sheer perfection. The CCP is my wife's EDC and she is very comfortable with it.
Perhaps... Like those cars, headphones and TV's, we got a gem...

Glad to hear this, I as well have had minimal issue with my gen 1 ccp. I've got about 2200 rounds through it, love it. I just wish someone would come up with a +2 mag extension.

I also concur. I purchased mine, CCP M1, as someone else's problem gun for $100.
I cleaned it and have put a few hundred rounds downrange with no issues to speak of.
The gun or the shooter..in some cases it can be debated.
Mine is in the carry rotation also.

I tried the +1 mag extension from Galloway and it just made the mag stick, and you lose the pinky grip. Took it off after 1 range trip. Great to hear that others love theirs as well.

I don't doubt that plenty of people had problems....I also don't doubt that some of you guys aren't having any. Walther has been know to make small changes as they go along and unless someone is really looking closely at model year to model year....you won't know about them. Hope to hear of more and more owners having 100% pistols. That is what is required for self defense. 1917

Glad to have found this positive. I just purchased my CCP M2 and will pick up Wednesday. I'll provide feedback

> Whats the best practice ammo you've had success with? I'd like to try a range - 115, 124 & 147 - just to see what works best for me.

From many of the reviews, seems FMJ runs most reliably?

My principal takeaways from hundreds of reviews are CCPs are:
> great if kept lubed & cleaned after each practice
> respect that it does have sweet spot of ammo that performs best.

Finally, the CCP definitely seems to be a 'lemon lottery' manufactured item. You have a great one or occasionally they send out a huge problem magnet. But when its great..everyone seems to agree its an amazing/outstanding fun, reliable firearm.

So, I purchased because it was absolutely the best 'feel' handgun for me, and fills the tricky carry/range/defense roles I need. Knowing about the lemons, I was re-assured by Walther's amazing warranty work. If I get a lemon, I am prepared to keep sending back until its not.

Thoughts? Prayers?

I agree the CCP feels absolutely amazing in the hand.

Let us know how it shoots!

There were a lot of reports of issues with the early guns. Seems like that has tapered off. Hard to know if that's because the guns have gotten more reliable or if people have stopped buying them.
.
Good luck with yours. Let us know how it's going.

Likely a little of bit of both I'm sure. But mostly I do think it was manufacturing/engineering shortcomings. It was a wholly new model for Walther unlike anything they have.

So, they had a steep learning engineering/manufacturing curve on subtle stresses/glitches of a gas blowback in a ccw platform. As always, things can be tested for years & 'perfected' but once the public gets it, amazing how new shortcomings/stress points are found.

I've researched a lot and Walther seems to be one of those manufacturers that does tweak its manufacturing even while in production as it gets more feedback. Understandable that they do that as they have that lifetime warranty cost hanging over them. Still they have a great rep & this is an awesome feeling gun so...

I'll let you know how it goes. Thanks Jimmo!

Happy shooting!

I have found that our CCP can be ammo picky. Remington 115gr FMJ seems to be the food of choice.
