Understand the reasoning, Moeb, but based off their history I'd say probably not.

But....

While they transition from S&W, perhaps this move is looking to establish something appealing to us big bore slingin' yankees..??

Interesting... That's a pleasant surprise. A new gun from Walther! My guess is a .45. Disappointing to see a mag button.

Announcement thus weekend? I'm watching!

I agree about the mag button.....I really do like the paddle. If they can make the DOA trigger pull as smooth as my Sigs, then they may really have something. As for a 45, that just doesn't tweak my interest....I'll stick with my 9mm and carry more rounds.

I wonder if this is geared toward Law Enforcement?

That grip looks too short front-to-back to be a 45, and the third picture gives a glimpse as to how big the muzzle end of the barrel is.

My guess is it's either a .380 or a 9mm.

I'm not interested either way. If this is a Walther product, I don't see what it offers over the 99-series pistols or the PPS, and if it is an Umarex product, I'm staying away from it.

imaoldfart: I am certainly no expert but it would seem the PPQ is the gun intended to fit the law enforcement niche as the first letter in "PPQ" stands for "POLICE". That is what I would surmise anyway with my low level of handgun knowledge.

I don't get it. Can understand the mag release but that's it. A DAO hammer fired gun? What's the selling point? "All the distraction of the hammer from your sight picture without the lighter trigger." I must be missing something.

If this is a .45, .40, or 9mm......
With a loaded chamber window it might even be Kalifornia kompliant!...
If Umarex....

I must say I agree with those above who noted that having a hammer-fired weapon without a single-action trigger is just too silly to even contemplate. What's the point?

Right. Didn't the PPQ solve ALL of these issues? Weird...
