I look at the PPX and wonder aloud what makes it special. I can't see the innovation. When I look at the PPS and P99c AS, I can spot the innovation and uniqueness but not with the PPX. Why didn't Walther try to come up with a new innovative gun? Perhaps we have reached a plateau for innovation in the industry. Companies like Sig Sauer know that and so that is why they expanded their offering with fancy looking grips and finishes... just make aesthetic changes until the next new design wave comes along.

You want a PPX? Here ya go, from a reliable reseller:
WALTHER PPX M1 9MM BLACK @ Sportsmans Outdoor Superstore:

I am patiently waiting to find a P99c AS, and also the 9MM ammo to feed it.

The guy's entitled to his opinion. I posted mine in his comments section.

To each their own but the PPX for me is a tack driver, what a great trigger. I'm just as accurate with it as my Glock 17. It's one of those guns in which doesn't shoot as it look though some love the PPX look. I still think it looks odd from most angles but it is my HD handgun right now, it's in the rotation.

I just picked up my new PPX is 9mm today. I'm going to go shoot it tomorrow, but from an aesthetic perspective I'm actually I lot more pleased than I thought I was going to be. You would not think this is a 400 dollar gun. I still like my P99's and PPQ more, but its a heck of good price. I'll find out tomorrow for myself if it lives up at the range. In the end, that's the most important part.

I think the "reviewer" is a bit critical of it. Every thing he criticizes is personal opinion though.

The PPX is what it is... it was designed to be a cost effective gun. Is it as good as a $700 PPQ? no, bc the PPQ has better materials and more workmanship. Can it be an accurate, reliable, etc. gun for that price range... Yea, given Walther's history, I would guess so.

Finally if this gun flops, let's not forget that many "models" of products have failed from reputable manufactures.

The PPQ is $700? Local gun shop has NIB for $590 and Academy for $624..so after taxes, close I suppose.

I agree it's not quite as good as the PPQ and I'm still not sure why such a difference in looks, grip, trigger but I guess if not, you have a DAO PPQ. I don't have a PPQ but I brought my PPX in to compare, very close in craftsmanship IMO but that's just a quick over view. The PPQ seems to have set the standard in triggers but maybe the PPX will as well with DAO. I still can't believe how easy the PPX is to shoot and shoot accurately, especially given its high bore axis.

Saw a new P99 at Academy for $599 as well. Is that a good price?

Seen P99 NIB at LGS for 579.99, so I'd say thats a pretty good price. I would have bought it, but it was in 40.
