Looks like a second complaint. Should we panic, no. Should we be concerned, yes. Should Walther look into the problem, absolutely. 100 rounds or 1000 rounds, to soon for a problem. Keep us posted.


PPX 9 mm/ 40 Cal.

I'll keep shooting both PPXs and watching this forum to see what happens!

Did you put oil in the firing pin channel? That area should be dry.

Scott99, Yes I did, after it quit working. That "fixed' it for a few mags then it quit again. Like the video, you may get 2 or three FTF's then the next one goes bang..... The ones that don't fire have no pin strikes.

I see. Wish I could offer more advice on this one.

Maybe at least try cleaning out the firing pin channel again but no oil this time.

Walther understands the problem now and will repair the mechanism. The second time I sent mine in they replaced the fire control group, which contains the firing pin, and now it is functioning like new again (I'm very pleased). They are friendly and will be helpful... I was just frustrated at having gotten mine back, the first time, and my PPX still wasn't working when I made the video. However, the problem is very new and now they have a way of fixing it. The number to call is: (479) 242-8500.

Good, sounds like Walther has a grip on things. Question I have will it affect all PPX's? Is this a design flaw, or just happening on certain pistols. I'll keep an eye on this as well and keep shooting mine.

I would assume if it was the case more of us would be going through the same problem.. I'm also going the assume that this could easily been a problem with the installation on this particular pistal..
