Brand new PPQ M2 Trigger gritty/Help appreciated

Just bought a new PPQ M2 5-inch and only 75 rounds fired. Trigger is very gritty. I feel friction/resistance and actually can hear the sound of parts rubbing until I hit the wall. Breaks crisply but the trigger is not smooth at all during travel. I had 2 previous PPQ's that were smooth as glass so am unpleasantly surprised.

Researching the trigger issue, found some threads and links on the PPQ trigger issues that recommend polishing or replacing parts, which I will not do for 2 reasons: voids the warranty, and have no expertise in performing a detailed field-strip. I've contacted Walther customer service but so far have not received a response.

I've cleaned and lubed the gun a few times and repeatedly dry-fired it, hoping it will smooth out but so far no improvement.

If anybody has any suggestions I'd appreciate it.

The suggestions in those threads cover virtually every option to overcome a gritty trigger. Since you have contacted Walther and refuse to use some of the suggested methods you should wait for Walther's response and proceed from there.

Spoke to Walther tech today and he said to shoot it more and it may smooth out, to clean the plunger on the slide (which I did thoroughly) and if all else fails to recontact. He said ABSOLUTELY not to dry-fired it. "Never dryfire a striker gun," he said. Goes against the advice of many. Meanwhile I'll run a few more rounds through it, but am not optimistic that will help. As for "suggested methods", which would void the warranty, I am not "refusing," only being sensible.

Page 24 of the book says to press the trigger to release the striker.

You don't dry fire a .22 because it is a rim fire cartridge and you will damage the barrel where the cartridge rim seats.

Look at the booklet that comes with the 22 model. Its says to dry fire it. Page 24, on the bottom. AND yes, it is for the 22LR PPQ.

Here is the link.
