PPQ Classic vs. PPQ M2 : Please note

Unless otherwise stated, the threads that are in this section of the forum were started/discussed with the PPQ Classic pistol in mind. It's worth noting that there are some differences between the two models. For example, magazines that work in the Classic do not work in the M2 version of the pistol.

Please jump in and note differences as you spot 'em, folks. You also might want to point out specific threads that should be updated with a PPQ Classic Only designation in the header. Thanks for the help.

I'm sure it's also worth noting that while "we" on this forum call the first generation PPQ the "Classic"; everyone else in the world, including Walther themselves, refers to it as the M1.

Actually, that turns out not to be the case. Walther is using the term M1 "Classic" on its FB page when speaking of the original iteration of the Q.

BTW they asked which model weapon folks would buy and the Classic Q beat out all others with 213 votes, M2 2nd with 103, P99 with 41, PPK with 36, PPS 23, PPK/S 22 has 20, PK380 16,
P22 has 15, PPX 14, and P38 8.

I'll bet they are trying to figure out how to get more PPX buzz going.

I think because of the PPX M1 you will see more and more folks using the Classic Q nomenclature.

Only 20%-30% or so of the Human population on Earth actually uses the internet. About half of them use Facebook.

What happens when the PPX M2 and PPQ M3 are released? I'm sure everyone will be very confused then.


Anyway, what's important for the FAQ is that:

The PPQ M1 and Classic are the same thing, which is slightly different than the First Edition and Navy, which are two slightly different setups as well... but are still essentially M1/Classic in their usage of magazines, at least currently.

That's not a lot of votes. And No choice for PPQ m2 5"?

The classic name really makes no sense to me.
PPQ FE, M1, M2; PPX M1, M2 is simple and accurate.
Adding "classic" just adds unnecessary confusion.

Actually it is a lot of votes and it shows the popularity of the Classic PPQ model, in this venue it beat out the not only all other choices but beat the M2 version by over a 2 to 1 margin.

As to not including the M2 5", for the purposes of this discussion I don't think it would have changed the outcome much at all.

You may choose to call the Classic Q anything you wish, but as I've said before, for those of us who own or shoot this weapon the nomenclature "Classic" is most apt. And the term is gaining traction with the Walther community and Walther Arms too.

I agree totally which is why I use Q FE to refer to my First Edition Q and Classic Navy for the Navy Q with paddle mag releases.

Anyone know if a holster for an M1 will also fit an M2?
