Walther PPX

Have you guys seen this?

Walther PPX :: Guns Holsters and Gear

Apparently it is a hammer fired pistol with a push button mag release.

Walther or Umarex?

No matter who makes it I'll bet it will have the Walther roll mark!

Yep. New photos were just put up on the website.

Walther PPX Photos :: Guns Holsters and Gear

This looks like an Umarex product to me, so far. It also looks like a locked breech design, so I wonder if this is chambered in .380 rather than .22? Maybe the PK380's replacement?

Interesting.

The new pistol is a polymer frame, hammer fired handgun. Right now we have limited information on the new gun, but here are some of the things we know.
I do come across quite a few people on other forums who wish certain striker pistols came in hammer-fired. So, there is a market.

But, it doesn't look like there is a decocker or safety on it. I'd think those would be a natural addition.

Walther's attempt to make a splash in the american market while making the move?

Take down bar similar to XDm, push button mag release, smaller slide release. No "dingus" on the trigger, and like Moeb said, anywhere else

The new PPX is said to have a consistant trigger pull, suggesting a DAO (double action only) gun. The gun is not a striker fired pistol: it is hammer fired.
If it is DAO, then there will not be a decocker.

I don't see this coming out of Ulm though. With the variants of the P99 pistols, and the PPS and PPQ, I don't see a reason for this thing to exist.

It is a new Walther that none of us own. Most likely some of us will buy it.

Could this be their stab at the single-staclk .45 market? I wish we had a shot of the bore
