This should be a sticky topic. Agree?

While the topic certainly is Stickyworthy, the content remains a bit on the thin side beyond the opening post. We can give it a try and see if it fills out in time.

another thing to watch out for is the WAP numbers. I believe some come in green and tan. Also , even though the WAP 10009 (night sights)is over 200 dollars higher than the others, it reportedly comes with all 3 magazines, which may make up the rest of the difference in price. I may consider this, although I am having no luck finding a 2011 model in any variation anywhere.

I have also noticed there is usually no difference in price between the ones with non-adjustable sights, and adjustable sights. I find this a little odd, usually adjustable sights are about 50 dollars higher on most guns.

Question Couple Noob Questions

Hey All,

Been trolling this and other firearm forums for a bit now researching what to get for my first handgun. Recently got my CCW and have been hitting the range renting & shooting as often as my wallet would allow.

I've landed on the PPS and have called around to a few of the local shops near me and will be picking up the PPS 9mm this Friday. Merry X-Mas to me!

I've gone shooting here and there over the years, but still definitely a noob and had a couple questions.

1.) I understand the want/need to make sure you are getting the newest model when purchasing, but wanted to get clarification on where the date (proof) stamps would be. As a noob was originally thinking it was the first few of the serial number that's on the internals, slide and barrel. Just wanted clarification if it is the stamping on the slide just rear of the ejection port and S/N on the slide.

2.) I planned on doing a field strip when I look at it to determine if it has the Magazine Disconnect, since I was unable to find when that change went into effect, but was unclear as to what tab to look for to see if it has the updated slide stop.

Thanks in advance.
M/C

There are several DE BB (2011) mfg PPS out there right now. DE BC (2012) mfg shouldn't be far behind. I actually rented a DE AK (2009) mfg and it shot fine but you can tell the difference when you remove slide and look at spring.

I was alarmed and thought my new PPS had some rust on the lower until someone informed me it was a type of welding flux Walther uses in the manufacturing process.

Just picked up my new PPS 9mm. The first one the the shop showed me was stamped BB. Ran out of time on lunch to put a ton of rounds through it.
