No loose barrel feed ramps???

It seems the PPX is plagued with loose feed ramps on their barrels but I see no postings here. So I guess this is a problem only on the PPX or is it because theCreed is so new?

The Creed has the same barrel as the PPX. No difference in design or dimensions. I had both a 9mm and 40 s&w PPX. The 9mm developed a loose feed ramp; you can read the details in the PPX section. The 40 s&w did not. Both guns were maybe a year old, and had maybe 200-300 rounds through them. Both of mine were really accurate, nice shooting pistols - very good even considering the low price I paid. I returned the PPX 9mm twice to Walther -once for a defective magazine spring, one for the loose feed ramp. In both cases the pistol was shipped at Walther's expense and returned in under two weeks. Recently I did sell both of my PPX pistols, but only to upgrade to the same caliber PPQ models; those join my PPQ 45. I did not carry either PPX nor did I use them for SD or carry - they were range/collection guns only.

Walther makes an excellent pistol and has the best customer service around in my experience. I'd think the incidence of loose feed ramps would be the same with Creed as it was with the PPX. Having said that, there are a lot of PPX examples that have had no problems...and some the have a loose feed ramp but continue to function just fine. Worst case, Walther would undoubtedly quickly replace a Creed's barrel should the feed ramp get too loose...HOWEVER, if this were to be my only pistol for duty or SD or even carry, I'd not want it to be a Creed.

I read that the feed ramps should move slightly to enhance reliability. It was in an article in shotgun news about the creed.

Okay, so I made " 'enry" into " 'enrietta". It was late at night...

So, you read it. Do you believe it?

I feel the same way about the feed ramps leading onto the freeway.

Slide assembly and barrel (with separate feed ramp) built by Umarex?

I would expect feed ramps coming loose, and not in an "as designed" function.

As stated in a previous thread, the Creed was built to a lower price point, with parts/assemblies produced by Umarex (an operation familiar with building air guns FCS).

Those who walked out of their LGS with a Creed, thinking they have PPQ quality/reliability at around half the price? Dare to dream!

The Creed was produced for the sole purpose of keeping those who see the more expensive model (in 9mm &40sw) as too pricey, looking at lower price Walther line products.

You have made the allegation that the Creed is manufactured at the Umarex facility multiple times, with zero supporting evidence. Walther reps I have spoken to refute this accusation, and it is marked with Ulm proofs.
