LOL!

The first thing I thought of when I saw the PPX was, "Kind of reminds me of my Ruger SR22."

Same here, I think I actually prefer the paddle release as well. If that's the only change it might not be enough for me. That said i guess I don't know that I could purchase a pistol (from any company) knowing this little information about it and what it's competitors are supposed to be.

*edit* After reading the long thread here about its purpose... I guess I don't have any use for an "entry" level pistol, unless it was offered in .45ACP. Which if you think about it is odd that it's not, since most of the speculation is aimed at the "American market" where we love our .45ACP's. That said, I guess I'm past entry level pistols and have an expectation of quality & finish I've come to except from my first (a P99AS). Regardless, I don't think this pistol is being marketed towards me.

the grip seems very long. a (sub)compact model would get me more excited. Would still like to see one in person though.

As a gone Walther fan, I feel strangely attracted to what at first glimpse seems like a hugely ugly firearm. Nevertheless, I'm going to reserve opinion until I see one in the flesh. In the current climate of panic buying, though, it may be some time before I actually find one to examine.

I'm open to it, as someone else said. Not excited about it, but if it shoots great and is as tough a my other Walthers, then I could give it an honest shot.

Purchase of the PPX depends greatly on whether its overall quality resembles the PPQ/PPQ or the P22/PK380. These days, you never know until you get to examine it up close. The new .22 caliber pistol that Walther is offering in a few weeks that looks like a PPK is, in fact, another P22-quality handgun. Cool as it may look, no thanks. If this one is the same, the answer will be the same.

How do you know the quality level of the ppk 22? Have you already had hand on? Just curious.

lol..'cow hoof'..All the while I was thinking "griffin claw" but I suppose I hyped it up because I plan to get one.

Yep, I plan to get one, I'm one of those that still has a soft spot for hammer fired pistols, the price point seems sweet, its a Walther made by Walther, I dont have one and I'm curious and not much of a renter of firearms.

Do suppose it looks a tad blocky but that has simply not concerned me at all..I own 4 glocks and will pick up two gen 4 10mm as soon as they are availablle, the looks of those have nothing at all to do with deterring me from owning them.

I like the sound of the light trigger DAO hammer fired pistol largely because its a mechanism I dont have much in my modest collection (have a H&K P30 w-LEM trigger). An alternative to my DA/SA and SAO hammer fired pistols if you will..

No grand philosophy or high-browed explanations..Just been intrigued since I've heard of it and want one..

This echoes my thoughts, only better stated. Thanks Searcher.
