Good Price on a CREED. Is it worth it?

I have an opportunity to buy a brand new Walther Creed online for $270. Maybe some of you have seen the ad. Of course, there will be an FFL charge too, so let's say $300.

Locally a gunshop offered me a new one for $399 today, so I came home and did some comparative shopping. The $270 price seems great. Almost too great. And when something seems too good to be true, it usually is.

My questions, of course, are: 1) Is the Creed Reliable? What are it's main issues?

I AM NOT a gun expert. I'm reasonably new at handguns in fact, so lots of the terminology that you will be tempted to use will go right over my head. Be basic with your replies.

On the other hand, neither am I a fresh out of high school puppy. I'm 70 years old, so I have learned to do some studying and learned a little bit about handguns in the past 2-1/2 years.

Nearly two years ago, I bought a Walther P22Q. After a LOT of problems with stove piping, FTF's, ejection problems, I finally got it to behave itself, sometimes with modifications that have to be made, and also with a few thousand rounds burning through it. I really don't want a repeat of that with this Walther.

CREED Owners: Give me your thoughts.

$270 is a good price. The Creed is a re-modeled, re-branded PPX, so it will be a good shooter. Sweet trigger.

CDNN has been offering the Creed for a while at that price. I have had several very positive experiences with them and can think of no reason not to buy one if I were to want one.

1990, 320,
Thanks for the quick replies. I have heard of the CREED, but never paid any attention to any of the comments before now.

Does anyone know of the gun's shortcomings?

The Creed is not one of the Walthers that many enthusiasts own in my experience. Nothing notably wrong with it, simply not a PPQ or as sophisticated as the P99. I'd read the old posts and keep in mind that many posts that start problem threads are from first time owners or a handgun.

I bought mine back in January of this year from CDNN and have never regretted it. The gun shoots fantastic. I have about 1500 round through it and never once has it given me a problem. I have a friend who also bought the Creed about a month ago after shooting mine and while he doesn't have as many rounds through it, it has also never had a problem. And CDNN is very easy to work with and they ship very fast. I think I received the Creed 3 days after placing the order.

I picked up a Creed last October as my first handgun - and another in December! Both at $300 at my local store.

I choose it for several reasons: Walther brand, low price, 9mm, double-stack (16 rounds plus 1), simple takedown and assemby, full-sized, great accuracy and great trigger.

As your first, you cannot go wrong.

Thanks, everyone. I think that I've read enough now to be satisfied that the CREED at the $260 price is a dependable gun at a legitimate price.

As I said, I didn't want the problems that I had with the P22 when it was new. I would not recommend that one to anyone, unless it was a used purchase that the previous owner took the time to work out all the problems that come with it new.

Just purchased a CREED and fired over 200 rds with this pistol. Great shooting 9mm and the trigger is just AWESOME!! I looked at the Ruger Security 9... I own a few Ruger firearms any they are a good value for the money. The CREED just fit my hand better, the trigger was smoother than the Ruger and I just hate Ruger using that Glock style rear "U" rear sight. Plus, the CREED came with an extra mag!!


Just my 2cents...
