Handled a PPX

My LGS received a PPX 9mm yesterday. Went to check it out. I have small hands and it did not feel right...it actually felt downright "cheap".
The only proofmark i could find was the eagle over N. No proofhouse mark for Ulm or Cologne. They are asking $469 for it. I was initially considering getting one, but after handling her yesterday i will not.

It must have proof marks from somewhere.

How is the trigger as far as smoothness, weight, break, reset?

TANFOGLIO's PPX has the Ulm proof on the serial number plate on the accessory rail.

well...i did not look there..i was concentrating on the slide and ,geez...dont know the technical term for it, at the barrel where the bullet goes in..(breach) ? it says 9x19mm and the eagle over n. same on the slide...i did not even consider the accessory rail...trigger was smooth. the gun just did not have a solid feel. i know that is all subjective so dont beat me up over it. she might feel better when loaded due to the added weight but still did not feel comfortable in my hands.

Well it is their budget gun after all so it won't be up to the same standards as the P99 for example. I have no interest in it at all.

Thanks for the input but I'll wait till I get my hands on. Based on Tangfolios pics and the few youtube videos it doesn't look cheap at all.

How did you like the Walther implementation of the button mag release?

i have a few guns with button release.... on the PPX it was in the right spot and not as awkward. I am actually looking forward to the M2 PPQ and hope it will be identically comfortable, although i prefer the paddles.

The question, then, is whether it falls in line (and league and bed) with other Walther "budget" models, like the P22 and the PK380, or whether it's truly a less-expensive version of a well-made Walther polymer pistol.

Being that I haven't handled it yet myself I don't want to be to hard but it looks cheap and I don't understand where Walther or Umarex was going with this one.
