I suppose you got the 2019 version of the manual too.

So there is really no doubt. The new P22Q versions 512.07.xx (USA only?) and 512.08.xx (EU and other European countries) are the most recent models and replace their de-cocking capable predecessors.

Did you purchase this pistol in the U.S.? If so....I wonder what the reason is for dropping the decocker? 1917

I bought it in Cleveland Ohio. I’ve also been wondering why they dropped the decocker. I’m also wondering why they didn’t change the designation. Before I purchased this pistol I was looking for the qd version. But decided to settle on this “older” version. Imagine my surprise when I broke it down the first time.

If Walther really has dropped the decocker (which is actually a feature I would appreciate, though it's not strictly necessary) I would imagine it's either because they were having problems with the components that have now been deleted, or more likely, an attempt to reduce costs on a feature they determined wasn't necessary in the market.

That's my impression too.

For what they spent on that they could have fixed the hammer face. They got the flat area just right....except for when the slide is over it...then the hammer is tilted back kicking up a point that can again hang up between the safety drum and breech rail. Aw heck, they could have put a 5" aluminum slide on it.

I need to take mine apart and photo it. All I can see is they made a fairly deep cut into the safety drum, installed a lever that presses down on the drop safety/firing pin block. This in turn presses down on the front arm of the sear which releases the hammer but not before the drum blocks the hammer's fall. In order for this to work...it appears the primary hook had to be lowered considerably. As far as I'm concerned that was a good thing. I had been lowering the hook anyway. But, I too wonder what the real reason was. I don't remember reading of any problems. 1917

Looked at a BJ year model P22 today, 2018 model, it decocked. Looked at a QD, BK year sitting next to it, 2019 and there is no decocker as has been noted before. Whether or not Walther makes a model that still decocks, doesn't look like it. The drum in the BK didn't have the decocker slot either. $239 for the BJ and $250 for the QD. Ruger SR 22 was $369. 1917
