I had this thought too. I hope the mags are much less expensive than $50 each. Defeats the purpose if they're not.

Guys
here is the spec sheet for the PPX
I did not read through the 12 or so pages of posts at this time...all I can say is that the more Walther's there is the better...
This gun is made in Ulm at the actual Walther plant
The gun feels good and the slide is super smooth, not sure what else to say at this point....

That's what I wanted to know. This is good news for people who are looking forward to this pistol.

Did you have a chance to pull the trigger?

The PPX reminds me of a PPS with a PPQ grip. And a trigger pull of .28".....VERY Interesting. The front corner of the trigger guard needs to be rounded off or it'll be 8ell on leather holsters. If I were to buy one of these, the first thing I'd do is use a sanding block and soften that sharp corner. On the other hand, in reality, it may not be as sharp as it looks.



Those serrations look a little deeper from this angle.

I don't think magazine expense matters all that much with a budget gun - the average buyer in the $375-400 range isn't going to get six mags for training - they'll use the two it comes with forever.

I dint understand the need or market for this gun to be honest with you. I hope it works out for them.

Not that Walther at all needs to copy cat but I was thinking again and much like when the PPQ hit the airwaves I couldnt help but think H&K P30 but with LEM trigger, so the 'sort of ' DAO trigger, hammer fired only varying in the mag and slide release which the PPQ somewhat has approximated. Takedown is all Sig...lol. I joke..but I did think again about the P30..even the trigger looks simillar.

Every time I watch that vid I'm still saying "show us the trigger pull" I mean his finger is all over it for most of the vid anyhow right...

That's wishful naming on Walther's part. I am sure a lot of agencies/departments would not like the light trigger pull. Remember the heavier NYPD Glocks? And German Police University specifically requires a >=30N trigger pull for the first shot (Section 3.2.4, TR \"Pistolen im Kaliber 9 mm x 19\", Stand: Januar 2008)

If PPX has a heavier DAO, maybe that's Walther's answer to Section 3.2.4.

I'm assuming the same. Plus I daresay that Walther will also make them incompatible with 99 and Q...

Yikes, 143mm tall. A G17 is only 138mm and holds one more round. So much for concealment.

Maybe when the PPXS comes out
