Long term review

Hi all. I’ve been looking at different 9 mm semi autos and discovered the Creed. All the reviews I’ve read on it make me want this pistol more. Haven’t heard 1 bad review for it but most of the reviews are from a couple years ago. I’m curious if anyone has had their Creed for a few years how it’s holding up? Thanks.

I'm sure its a good pistol. I don't own one. Walther doesn't make them any more.

I don't have a Creed but I do have it's predecessor, the PPX. I've owned a couple since 2013 and they have held up just fine. They shoot as accurately as my P99s and PPQ. They are just bulkier.

I bought a Creed off of CDNN when they had a super killer deal last winter.

It has quickly grown to be my favorite range pistol. Extremely accurate and reliable with any ammunition that I feed it. Close to 300 rounds so far.

I'd buy one and a few spare mags - if I had to again.

I tried the PPQ. Only thing I didn’t like was that little paddle on the trigger. That’s why I liked the Creed.

I have one. Love it. Have put over 1500 rounds through it. Got it from CDNN on sale for a steal. My first 9mm. It is a bit snappy

Two gripes I have with the gun. The bore axis is really high. As in, “what were they thinking” high. Second, the trigger is the best worst trigger I have ever used.

Let me explain....

It’s a long, heavy 2A trigger. Ugh. However, and this is important, it’s smooth, consistent and easy to stack.

The gun is kind of stupid accurate. Which is kind of a real surprise. It just shoots well.

For $300 the gun is a deal. For $250 a steal. But for a few bucks more, I really think a PPQ is a better option.

Yeah. The trigger is kind of a DAOish trigger. I think of it as what the HK LEM wanted to be. Walther did a good job I think for what it is.

That type of trigger is a little out of vogue these days but it's still very shootable. Its clean and consistent at least.

I'm probably biased because I have about a million rounds (an exaggeration) of DA revolver shooting under my belt. I like DAO triggers for self defense guns.

It's no problem with a little practice. No need to stage it, at least within reasonable self defense distances.
