Hi all from MN I am getting rid of my g19. I also own a Ruger and a XD. I am thinking about the PPQ probably classic that is what is here locally. Also have my eye on the xdm 9mm. I have rented and tested them both. I will try make this short lol. I know the warranty subject is beat to death but did it scare any of you guys before you bought the pistol? Is about the only difference between the classic and the M2 the mag release and that the mags are not interchangeable?
I know I don't have to tell you why it is such a saweet pistol. Just looking for a little push to get over the hump.

OK, Push, Push, Push. Go ahead, you won't regret it. As for Warranty, Bret Vorhees has informed us that Walther is currently making sweeping changes in the way they do business. Blue skies ahead.

I was looking hard at the XD and a M&P, and then by happenstance I picked up the PPQ. You know how that story turned out ;)

Thank you for the push that's all I needed lol. I have read the famous #31 post. What is funny is a glock guy [Hickock45] is the one who got my interest in the PPQ.

Yes...yes..YES! Get the PPQ. It's the word awesome, simply condensed into a shape that remarkably resembles a handgun. ;):D

Agreed.

PPQ has in writing a lifetime warranty, if what Bret Vorhees is saying is true, their shouldn't be any issues regarding your warranty being honored, should the need arise.

Meantime, despite looking at other options, having a new(er) PPQ myself and coming down with Walther fever, I want more. Until their business changes are in effect, I will order mine through Davidson's.

Yes, their weapons are that good. There's just something elegant about Walther's vs the competition.

Well-made pistols don't require servicing.
Ehh... Not gonna argue this but manufacturing flaws do exist which do require servicing. The recoil rod in my first PPQ for example. :)

Still I agree they are well made and I'd tell anyone looking at a PPQ to just buy one. Either a Classic or an M2 will serve you well .. Buy the Classic though :D

A little reassurance on the warranty for PPQ. ALL PPQ's have a lifetime warranty. It was reported that one of our tech service guys stated it was only a year, but that was incorrect. Plus, I never saw a name of that particular service tech, which is always helpful in correcting any discrepency. But it has been made clear in that department that the PPQ is covered. Period.

Bret: Will there be any plans to offer a better warranty on other products from the Walther line? If so, what happens to those in ownership of Walther's out of warranty or those that are currently in their 1 year period?

I have a Glock 23, Sig P226 as well as several other pistols. Unfortunately since I purchased my PPQ, everything else is gathering dust...lol

Walther didn't just hit a home run with the PPQ, it hit a grand slam.

Mrdaputer, have no fear. The PPQ is a great pistol. I am in the twin cities. What shops are stocking the M1?

Excellent to hear. Unfortunately, my favorite fun shop (Frontiersman in St Louis Park) has never stocked much Walther. Bill's has captured a few of my paychecks over the years, but the shop in Robbinsdale has been light on Walthers as well. Glad it is turning around.

The one in Robbinsdale only has the M2
