Creed Barrels
I have a question to Creed owners, is the barrel pitting issue that occurred on the PPQ models happening on the Creed model? Thanks

I don't think many have had them but a couple weeks.. Was it a fast thing, this pitting? I've only had mine 2 weeks or so, one trip to the range. Then cleaned.

Well in my case they (Q5,PPQ .45) were pitted from the factory, now I am not saying that firing the pistol will not cause the pitting to show up but I am not sure on that. Thanks for your response.

The Creed that I looked at had a rifled barrel, does any one know if these barrels have the same process as the nitrided treated poly barrels?

That I do not know. I will say that quality barrel steel eliminates the need for any of these "processes"!

It would be very interesting if the Creed does not have a polygonal barrel.

I don't think it would be too interesting. It's probably cheaper to keep the same tooling from the PPX and use it on the Creed barrels. Remember cost is a big factor for the Creed. Keeping traditional rifling probably helps keep the cost down.

Oddly I can't find any information on the barrel of the Creed on the Walther site. Does anyone know if its traditional or polygonal?

Catalog doesn't mention barrel types for any of the guns.

They have announced polygonal barrels in the past. This shouldn't be hard to find, it is - but it should be a basic part of the specs IMHO.
