The PPQ is a great gun and seems to be catching on in the marketplace.

If you could change one thing about the PPQ though, what would it be??

I prefer cocked and locked carry, so I'd say a manual thumb safety similar to a 1911.

Eeeek!

For me when I bought it I got it with the night sight option. Guess I, stupidly, thought night sights were night sights and all like the 3 green dot Trijicons I have used for 25+ years. Nope. Should have researched more.
Pretty small complaint though. The big orange dot with the single hash on the rear is certainly serviceable just not what I am used to.

I've often thought, as the triggers on striker fired guns get lighter and shorter, a manual, 1911 like safety would make sense.

For me, it would be grip texture. The PPQ isn't horrible in this area but I prefer a rougher, "grippier," grip texture.

For example, I prefer the PPS to the Shield but I really like what S&W did with the Shield 2.0 grip texture.

A heavier recoil spring in the .40 S&W version would be nice.

I know the current mantra is "a manual safety will get you killed." I just don't buy it. It is a training issue.

I am old enough to remember when many people carried cocked and locked 1911s. The manual safety did not seem to be a much discussed problem.

The 1911s were arguably heavier, more maintenance intensive, held fewer rounds and were perhaps less reliable but....I do not recall the manual safety being called out as a weak spot.

I knew the OE sights were the PPQ "weak point" before I purchased.


So weak in fact, Trijicon Big Dot Tritium night sights where purchased BEFORE the PPQ, and installed before the first range session.

I’d like to see them make a model with a true full size grip that accepts 17-20 round flush fit mags

make one on the P99 frame. Love the feel of that frame. but like the trigger better on the PPQ.
