Here in the vast, echoing silence of the PPX section...

...I have to say how much fun I had shooting mine the other day. Sure, it is homely as a mud fence - certainly the most unappealing pistol design I own. But that trigger - wow. It verged on boring to shoot a big hole in targets at my standard 30 feet away.

This pistol represents an astonishing value in a 9mm. I know why it was killed off, but the poor old PPX is still a ton of fun.

Part of the reason I've ordered a PPQ is due to how much better I shot my buddies PPX than all his other pistols.

Under rated...

Seldom dated...

Often hated...

Yup the PPX was the "entry" level striker fired platform from Walther. It introduced many to the great Walther trigger and got them lusting after Qs...

I too hated the look and feel but agree it could drive tacks having shot a few at Greet and Shoots.

Yep, Walther's Ugly Duckling of a gun. It's so ugly, it's kind of cute.

Sweet @$$ trigger though.

Around 2000 rounds with mine, and it has been pretty much flawless. Had a couple of failure's to return to battery my first range session. That was me. Corrected after I fixed my grip. I pretty much learned how to shoot with that PPX.

Not striker, but partially pre-cocked hammer fired.

I still have one and will keep it. I’d never heard of it and found my first at a gun show. I’m glad I bought it.

^^^^^ Couldn't agree more! Great handgun. Flawless going on four years. Still out shoot friends and my brother who all own handguns with numerous bells and whistles at twice the price. I'll keep both, a 9 and 40.

The only problem with the PPX today is that one could have gotten a P99 and now a PPQ for just peanuts more.

I love my PPX! Mine has the 5in threaded barrel. I shoots great, love the feel in my hand. Only drawback is it's just a bit too big for CCW. New Q4 Ted should be here in a couple of days.
