This firearms was cleaned & lubed prior to shooting. Lube's used, Tetra gun grease & Mpro7 gun lube.

First 16 rounds fired where Remington 115 gr JHP. Fired all 16 without issues
After this switched to the Tulammo 115 gr FMJ steel case ammo. I had 4-failure to extract the casing from the chamber. I then switched to the Federal Champion Aluminum case 115 gr FMJ, shot all 100 rounds of that perfectly. Went back to the last remaining 30+ rounds of the Tulammo, after adding a drop of oil the extractor area on the pistol. Ran all 30+ rounds flawlessly.

Then shot Federal Ammunition 115 gr FMJ RN, shot 100 rounds flawlessly, prior to shooting this I did use a cleaning brush to smooth out the chamber.
Then I got 15 124 gr FMJ Lawman ammo & it shot that mag perfectly.
I then shot the Remington UMC 115 gr ammo, 50 rounds all shot flawlessly also. I did finish off the remaining Remington JHP 115 gr ammo I had totaling 45 round of JHP ammo fired today. Fired the remaining amount flawlessly.

Total ammo fired today 395 rounds.
So far I am very impressed with this pistol. It is a tank of a gun, kinda reminds me of my Ruger P95 a bit. That trigger is awesome. To CC carry it isn't a issue for me being a larger built man.

This pistol is easy to keep on target the standard 3-dot sights work great. The POA is almost dead on. I was even hitting my steel plate at 25 yrds with constant ease.
Again the only malfunction I had was with steel case ammo, which doesn't bother me cause I really don't shoot steel case that much in my pistols anyway. I was glad that it ran the aluminum case ammo well I shoot that a lot.

Thanks for reading my review on the Walther Creed, I will keep this updated as I shoot it more. I will give another update after the 500 round mark is hit. More than likely that will happen in the next range visit this weekend.

Well here is a update range report.
I have got 715 round through this Walther Creed 9 mm pistol
Shot Remington 115 gr FMJ 200 round
Federal aluminum case 115 gr FMJ 100 rounds
Sig Sauer 124 JHP defense ammo 20 rounds
The only malfunctions that I have had where from that Tulammo 115 gr Steel case FMJ
had 3 Failure to Extract.

I have noticed that the chamber if this barrel has some kind of coating on it, I can see small flakes of dark brown almost black film on the casings when inspected. I will keep shooting it, have noticed that it has been getting smaller amounts after this last 320 round fired through it.

This firearm is very accurate, has a real true POA sighting style that I like. Also that trigger is very nice as well. I am very impressed with this Walther Creed pistol so far. I will keep posting results when I get to the 1,000 round count. Which the way I shoot won't take long.

Another update.
Just tried another 50 rounds of Tulammo steel case, ran all flawlessly. I am thinking that this pistol does have a ammo break in of around 500 rounds. Also put another 50 rounds of Federal Champion 124 gr FMJ shot it like a champ.
I also miscalculated my last count at 715 rounds it was really 730 rounds this 100 taking it to the 830 round mark, I am putting another 100 through it today so almost at the 1,000 round mark.

The "small flakes of dark brown almost black film" can be either the packing grease not having been completely removed from teh barrel OR lacquer from the Tulammo you have shot.

I was thinking that also but it was on the brass case ammo also, I shot the brass case first before the Tulammo, also the other day I went out & shot brass there was still a small trace on the casing also, this was after a good cleaning of the barrel & chamber.

I have now hit just over the 1,000 round mark, sitting at 1,034 round. I just recently tried 32 rounds of the Speer Gold Dot 147 gr Defense ammo the stuff the FBI uses. The Creed ate all 32/50 rounds up. I didn't want to shoot the whole box since I was going to use it for carry also & this Speer is about $30 dollars for 50 rounds at my local gun store.

More accurate with the 147 than the others?

After my PPQ in .22 LR, I'll buy a CREED for my wife.

I have found that the Creed is accurate with about all ammo types, I will admit that the 147 gr did seem a bit more consistent with the hits on my 10" gong than that of fmj.

Tulammo uses the same coating as Wolf does, they haven't used lacquer finish in years.

Well since my last post in July I have got now 2,645 rounds through the Creed
Ammo used
Federal Champion 115 Gr aluminum case FMJ
Federal 115 gr brass case FMJ
Speer Gold Dot 147 gr HP
Remington UMC 115 gr RN
Remington 115 gr JHP
Sig Sauer 124 gr JHP
Winchester White box 115 gr RN
Aguila 115-124 gr FMJ
Blazer Brass 115-124 gr FMJ
Tulammo 115 gr FMJ steel case
When I purchased this pistol I had 3,000 rounds of various 9 mm ammo on hand. I am now down to 355 rounds left, just counted after last range session yesterday. 1,000+ of those rounds where fired though a dirty pistol. I usually clean after each range visit but didn't this time.
I shoot about 300-500 round per visit maybe more. I cannot beat those Wal-mart 9 mm ammo prices as of late. Been paying .19-.20 cents a round here as of late, this is brass case & aluminum case ammo.
I have had now 4 stuck cases, all Tulammo steel case 115 gr RN ball ammo. It seems to only stick when the barrel & chamber gets hot, this is 4 out of 250 rounds of steel case that I had.
So far I am very impressed with the Walther Creed pistol. Shoot like a champ will post again after it reaches near the 3,000 + range.
