Well, there's some first-hand experience supporting you right there, my friend.

Just how many rounds were you going to put through that DeLorean?

Sorry. Couldn't resist. I'll go back to my room now.

I’m not sure what’s considered a high round count. I figure probably 200-400 rounds a month. 2400-4800 rounds a year is what I’ll put through it.

That's a fair amount of shooting; get something with readily available parts. CDNN has Sig 320s for $399.

You raise a good point halfmoon. If the gun is going to be shot fairly heavily, easy access to parts and service is an important consideration.

The Creed is a fine and underrated pistol. Nothing wrong with it. However, if availability of parts over the long haul is a potential issue, I wouldn't choose it as my weekly blaster.

The OP might be advised to save a little more and invest in a PPQ. This is a Walther forum after all. If the OP likes the feel of the Creed, he will almost assuredly like the feel of the PPQ.

I have tried the PPQ. What I don’t like about it, and this goes for the majority of these new semi’s these days is the safety trigger and or grip safety. I really want something without those 2. I was also liking the CZ 75 but it’s 2x the price.

It would be silly to require any manufacturer to warranty anything for life or even anything that has been discontinued. So I am sure they state that to avoid any legal obligation.

Looking at the SW99 series pistols with Walther/SW, there are no parts available for the .45 cal version and the thing isn't even 20 years old yet.


I would expect a similar scenario with the creed. They will undoubtedly service the pistol to the best of their ability, but as time goes by those parts *will* dry up.



I use my SW99 .45 as a nightstand gun so I actually ended up purchasing a 'parts kit' online from gunbroker (including an extra slide!). I'd hate to have something break on it and just be told 'too bad, so sad... here is a brochure on the PPQ 45 and we can give you a 50 dollar discount'

I e-mailed Walther and was told as long as the parts are available they can do warranty work. The fella told me that they have guns that were discontinued more than a decade ago and still have parts for. So I’m feeling more confident buying a Creed. Thanks all for the replies.

A decade isn't that long. My oldest gun is a Walther P. 38 from 1942.

And previously, I had a late 20s/early 30s garbage Broomhandle I paid a $115 for that I traded for a 1978 PPK/S.
