GOT DAYMN!!!! Date seems to keep being pushed back! I was hoping to get one by the end of the year.......more so around now, at least that's the impression I had they will be available. Major crapper, I guess ill be spending alittle bit more $$$ on the p99(full size :(.....pps was suppose to be my CC) to have that as a CC. While I'm at it, does anyone have or know where I can get a factory front sight for a p99? The one that comes installed on the p99 from the factory, can't recall the number assigned to that specific sized sight right now. Walther doesn't have much marketing sense if you ask me. They should have released it already, by the time the begaining of the year gets here everyone will be broke due to the holidays......PPS would have been a great Christmas present to myself ahahhah. The pps better be a flawless weapon by the time it gets shipped, when it finaly does get shipped anyways. Finaly received the notice in the mail stating I was approved for my CCL and to come get it so I imagine many can understand my anxiousness for the arrival of the standard PPS standard.

I beg to differ. I'd preffer better now or never. If they take too long to get here I may just go ahead and start building a m4/ar15 and more than likely my tax money will poor into that as well. But doing so will contrubute to more problems because while funding the build, the .40 cal will be availble and would taunt me.....so you see, I beg to differ. WALTHER! WE ARE AMERICANS(maybe most of us anyways) AND WE NEED MORE POWER!!!! We might not necessarily need it.....but go big or go home....or at least have the option of doing so......we like options.....like super size it at Macdonalds .40CAL!!!

The one from Gunblast was not a writers sample.
If you look at the ones from other "big" publications and the ones displayed by S&W or Walther, they are all "AB0xxx"
There was a delay in shipping the black PPS for a reason, at least I think there was..........
here is the serial break down

AB0xxx was for the preproduction and writers sample
AAxxxx was the first edition for the European market
PPSxxx was for the american first edition
AB1xxx is the start of regular production

Finally, my local dealer had one and I ploped the money down lickety split. First range day sucked, I was beside myself. Shot 100 rounds and had multiple FTE's and a few stovepipes. Not limpwristing. Went home, pondered the expert's advice ( from "walther Forum-PPS" thread), and decided to take the thing apart. I cleaned and lubed the mags, the gun, and noticed my trigger was sticky if I let it return slowly. I then removed the striker assembly and noticed there was a chunk of powder or plastic that was in the firing pin channel and I removed it. That fixed the trigger issue as it now was less gritty and returned more briskly. Back to the range, 150 flawless rounds-problem solved, happy camper. Accurate, with low recoil. AWESOME.

I absolutely love this thing. I have been wanting an ultrathin 9mm of quality european design/construction for a long time. You don't even notice this thing in your waistband. Kudos to Walther for having the insight. Now, I can't wait for the .40, although I think 9mm is optimum in these smaller weapons. Good shooting.

Black, I couldn't believe it really. I called my local dealer, "you guys don't have any of the new Walther PPSs in black by chance, do you?" I literally just put it out, I got one.:)

PPS on Gunbroker

I'm a Houstonian and I know Frank at Fountain Firearms, so I called him and he ended the auction for me. I pick up AB1072 on Tuesday :) Paid less than the Buy Now price too, but not by a whole lot. I believe Davidson's website lists the MSRP as $622 for the black PPS. BTW, contrary to what has been posted "my" PPS does have a test target.

Almost forgot - Frank told me they actually received two black PPS's and the first one sold in a few hours. Davidson's lists them as "Allocated" which means they are currently in very short supply and few dealers will have one. If you find one being offered anywhere close to MSRP and you want one now you might want to jump on it.
