[QUOTE=MGMike;1190906]How could it reasonably be considered a "normal function" for two parts which ordinarily have no mechanical interaction to be violently gnashing themselves together, leaving a gouge in the barrel which ought to tell any engineer that something is not right and needs correction?

My guess is that Walther's engineers long ago identified the flaw, but management told them to ignore it. It's cheaper to declare that it's
"normal".

M
ding ding ding!!! and we have our most probable winner.

they figured it would cost more to recall and implement a fix rather than just "let it go" and fix the guns that people noticed it on (and let's be honest. This is a self defense pistol where 99% of their buyers shoot a few hundred rounds over the lifetime of owning the gun, and only us "shooters" are going to actually notice the issue.

This issue is a real shame, I'd like a PPS but with this issue and the lack of acknowledgement of there being a problem is very disheartening and reflects negatively on Walther as whole. There is no excuse to be selling a pistol in 2019 that beats it self up if used, if something's been properly engineered it shouldn't do something like that.

I think I mentioned this long ago, when this issue first raised its ugly head, but it lost them future sales with me. I would have bought a PPQ M2 .45 ACP had it not been for this and the flaking barrel issue. My "combat-style" .22 LR would probably have been a PPQ 22. Instead I bought a Sig P320F for my .45 ACP and I'm looking to acquire a Taurus TX22 for the combat-style .22 LR.

The wife of one of my best friends really likes my PPS M2. My guess is that as soon as I tell them about this problem, and that Walther has taken the position it's "normal," that'll kill that idea. A colleague liked my PPS M2. After hearing about this issue, and Walther's response, he went with an S&W Shield, instead.

I suppose I have only a couple hundred rounds through my PPS M2. It hasn't yet shown any signs of having the trigger-bar-chamber-impingment problem. I'm hoping it stays that way, because it's my favourite carry piece & I'd hate to have to replace it.
