If the article or forum post was made before August 2018 it's most likely not the CCP M2 that's being discussed.
In my research I found that the great deal of negative info on the CCP was almost always on the pre-M2 model. When googling "CCP M2 issues" a good many references would come up. I would start reading the article or forum post to find it to be one of the commonly known negative issues of the previous model and not the M2 that I had searched for. I soon realized that just glancing at the date of the post and seeing that it was made before the "M2" was on the market saved me reading time.
There are some negative posts on the "M2" so I hope this makes it easier to find those for making your decision.

In my case I found most of those were by folks that were already accustomed to the operation of a different CCW or they were shooting a different round than what my research found to shoot reliably and accurately. This is also my first striker fired pistol so I don't have any muscle memory conflicts with it, if you get what I mean. There were still a couple issues some guys had but I felt confident enough to "pull the trigger" and have my Wife get me one for Christmas. I've had it to the range a couple times and am very pleased with it so far.

Numerous discussions on the CCP. The CCP M2, not so much. Let us know what you think when you get some "mileage" on it. My only CCP gripe is the take-down. Other than that it has much to offer.

When researching you should always be aware of the posting date. This applies for everything and not just this. Plus what is a CCP "M2"? Walther doesn't even designate that on their site.

It's an improved model...tool-less takedown, trigger is a little better, and there's a slight visual difference...eyes familiar with the CCP can spot it right off. I think the slide and/or frame has an M2 on it, as well, but I'm not 100% on that. If I can find an M2 local, I'd give it at least a dry fire test and see what it feels like. The handful of first-gen CCP' I fondled all had ****ty triggers. Hard pass. Worse than my PPS, and that's not gonna cut the mustard for me.

On the topic of the trigger.. when I first dry fired one, the trigger felt like draggin a bag of stones down railroad tracks. Being a gun guy, I was not impressed and not interested.

Some time later, I got to shoot one at the local range. I'm not sure if it was a better sample or what but in actual shooting, it felt pretty good. It was easy to get hits with and of course felt great in the hand. I dont think the gun was worked over or buffed in any way.

The experience left me intrigued. Like you, I tolerate the PPS trigger. I dont really love it.

I'll never understand why Walther didn't just shrink down the PPQ into something CCP sized. Seems like they would have been ahead of the game.

The CCP was always about the smaller size and easy to retract slide due to the gas/piston system. A 9mm for people with weaker hand strength and perhaps a bit less recoil. 1917
I get it. That was the marketing pitch. They might have sold more of them though if the gun was as as reliable and shootable as the PPQ.

I see it on this page well below the CCP near the bottom.
https://www.waltherarms.com/handguns/#

Can't believe that the video links on that page are to the earlier version. The one showing the field take-down is the one requiring the special tool.

"If you're researching the CCP M2 for purchase save yourself some time."

I'll fix this.

Want a soft recoil handgun with about the lowest bore axis of any semiauto, an awesome trigger, a barrel over 4" long, easy to EDC size, and has ~ ZERO reports of ANY cycling/ammo issues (40 yrs going), even with the extractor REMOVED!

The original, and still the best. Your welcome .........
