According to the gentleman to whom I spoke in Ft Worth (Ed. I meant Ft Smith), the Creed has the same barrel design if not the same identical barrel. But I still am not certain myself how common this loose feed ramp is, nor am I certain a certain amount of looseness causes problems. Of course, I'd never carry ANYTHING that I was not 100% comfortable carrying. For a range only gun I am not concerned, and Walther does seem to fix what's theirs.So is this 'PPX only problem' or are we just waiting for the Creeds to start streaming back to Walther USA?
LATER: I sold both my PPX examples. I'd returned the 9mm to Ft Smith due to a loose feedramp, it was repaired<replaced>/returned quickly. All under warranty. The new barrel was identical to the old, although not loose. I never had any feedlng or other problems with my 9mm or 4 s&w PPXs. However, I sold both from my Walther collection only to finance the purchase of the same caliber pistol in the PPQ line up. I still think the PPX (and Creed) are find pistols for a collection or range use....but I'd hesitate to recommend them for SD.
