It's a Walther. It will be a good one!

Look forward to a range report.

I picked up last night and the range bag was included. It's not much, but something. CDNN is on their game when it comes to shipping. Placed the order on a Thursday evening. They shipped on Friday and it arrived Monday!

First impressions are that it's definitely an ugly beast and quite gangly. However, it does seem to point better than you would think considering it's a little top heavy. Grip is going to need a set of talon rubbers. The trigger in dry firing is exceptionally good for what it is.

Obviously a budget gun, but I didn't buy it to be a hard use weapon and for the price, it will be hard to beat if it's anything close to as reliable as my PPQ. For my planned use, it'll probably never see more than 1-2000 rounds in the next 10 years. Just a routine workout. (I say that now. )

More to follow after I finger bang it.

Short trip to the range today with the new Creed. No hickups. I must say, I was pretty impressed with it. Very nice trigger and the pistol is a lot more balanced during firing than I thought just point and aim dry firing. The sights tracked well and settled down quick for fast followup shots. Initial impressions... it's a solid, accurate shooter! 2 inch groups at 20 yards with ease. I can't believe I got it for $ 250!

There's a bazillion reviews on the innerwebs but here's my short list:

Likes:
Balanced well for a high bore axis, top heavy pistol.
More than adequate accuracy.
Value for the money can't be beat.
Metal sights with a little daylight between the dots.
The trigger.

Not so much likey:
The three piece barrel design is unconventional. We'll see how it does in the long run.
The grip doesn't really turn me on. The palm swell just doesn't feel natural for my hands. I can live with it.
Racking the slide is notchy as heck. Maybe it'll smooth out?
The magazines feel cheap. My airsoft mags are higher quality.
My sights require a 6 o'clock hold and I prefer combat stye.


4.5 out of 5.0 stars!

-Duke

I have fired my friends a few more times. I still think it’s an amazing value especially at $250. Crazy cheap.

The grips are very slippery. Easy fix though. And frankly, I have grip tape on my Q5 anyway.

The trigger is well....interesting. I am not even sure what to think of it. It really feels more and more like a DA revolver, but lots lighter. It might be an interesting gun if they were to put more of an exposed trigger and a decocker.

You can shoot the gun more accurately by staging it. It’s not that hard to do either.

Before pawing one of these, my thought was that a creed with really just a cheap ass PPQ. You know, no backstraps, cheap sights etc.... those things are true but the gun is really completely different from a PPQ.

The bore axis is REALLY high. Almost obscenely high and I don’t understand the point of that. It’s really gigantic. But that’s also a little typical of Walther. The snap on the Creep is a lot more than on my Q5. Not a fair comparison based on price, but it’s also a reality.

So, why haven’t I bought one yet????

On the one hand, I don’t know why everyone doesn’t have one. It’s a great gun for $250. On the other hand, I just don’t have a need. I don’t need a truck gun, per se, and my other guns I shoot regularly are simply much nicer.....and much more expensive.

I think the creed is an ideal gun for a new shooter who doesn’t want to make a big investment. I also think it’s good for anyone looking for a knock around gun.

But I do think that the price difference between a Creed and say a standard PPQ at current prices is well worth the difference too. The PPQ has better sights and frankly, a better trigger.

I knew it was going to happen. Scope creep. The scope of this pistol was to be a beater gun that I knew would be a reliable "under the desk" gun. At the price point, I wouldn't be devastated emotionally or financially if a meth head stole it.

Aim, pull trigger, it goes bang, and bad guy goes down.

In true hayduke fashion, I'm looking at stainless guide rods and upgrading the sights.

I'm hopeless and weak.
