Separate PPQ Section?

Just wanted to get everyone's feedback to see if y'all thought there would be enough traffic on the new PPQ to justify its own section.

i want walther as a company/make to remain strong and live forever.while the PPQ for me is absolutely no replacement for the p99 AS,if some who would prefer it can come here and get information to help them decide to buy one,then i'm all for it.

if it becomes popular it would also help to not dilute the p99 section and help people realize it's a separate model.

i state this with a little trepidation as i hope walther understands the p99 AS must remain in production as it is the best polymer pistol out there for many reasons and with the best "out of the box" DA/SA trigger for a service pistol short of "trigger job" or a competition type.

I voted no but wouldn't have a big issue with it having it's own section. At the end of the day it like the DAO and QA before it, is nothing more than a molestation of the original version or AS in an attempt to get more buyers. Like both of the aforementioned models, there will be a few who claim to prefer it but it'll flop.

Ideally, have a section for the real P99 and another for the BS varients to appease silly LEO contract regs and such. Like HK, the gun can be had with a good factory trigger or some factory monstrosity.

Yes, There is confusion between the P99 and the P99 Q

I voted "P99/PPQ". To me the PPQ looks a lot like this Turkish P99 clone. That's ironic because in an earlier thread somebody speculated that this gun might be a prototype for a new version of the P99...

I like the way that looks better than the PPQ

But, back to the task at hand - I say, give it its own section!

I still believe that they may eventually discontinue the normal P99

Perhaps...but I highly doubt anytime soon!

Seems to me that the PPQ is basically a P99 QA with a (purportedly) better trigger and some cosmetic changes, so I don't see why it needs a whole new section of the forum. Renaming the current one should do the trick.

On a side note, does anyone else think that potential model names of future versions of the PPQ could be hilarious? (PPQc AS, anyone?)

Anything is possible. After seeing the mess they made of the PPS and this latest PPQ POS, nothing would surprise me. Probably some air gun retard from Umarex giving them "expert" corporate advice.

I'll buy up some used AS models to add to my three if they do that. I have no corporate alliance to Walther; my allegiance is to good product. Make a POS and I take my business elsewhere. The sad part is they could do good engineering and focus on improvement but instead they want to think like the others and build garbage. Want to sell me some new product? Easy, make them lighter, How about a 3.5” C front end with a full size grip? What about a long slide for competition? How about a 9mm PPS in a light weight with an AS trigger? How about a .22LR factory conversion kit?

No, they’d rather waste time with garbage like this. Others are licensing the original AS concept now and it is finally getting the exposure it deserves. Nobody has licensed the QA or DAO and nobody will license this PPQ POS I’ll wager. Walther reps don’t get it. And people wonder why businesses go under?

Hey, jl: Don't sugarcoat it like that, man -- tell us what you really mean.
