OK, here is a thread for everyone with a CCP who isn't having any issues. How should this proceed? Obviously if you aren't having any issues there won't be any to list. So...I'm thinking owners might tell us what they bought, when they bought it, what ammo they are using, how many rounds, perhaps even a list of serial numbers will add up to something.

I looked at two today and I still say this is a pistol I want. Wildbill 45, this one is for you. Forget about small cosmetic issues, forget about letting someone borrow it for a few shots who limp wristed it. If you have a dependable CCP....you will know it. BTW, the slides were really smooth on the ones I looked at today. There was much more material removed from the chamber entrance than I've seen before but at least it was done neatly. The feed ramp was stock appearing.

Tell us about your pistol. I know we have some folks here who are entirely happy with their CCP or CCPs.. :) M1911

I don't have a problem with mine I got the stainless but rather have the all black it would have matched my other Walters. I use some junk in mine had one bad round out of 50 I like the pistol. After a couple of reassembles it goes together better.

I absolutely love mine! We have put at least 900 rounds through it. We have mainly shot Freedom Munitions 115gr. CC with Federal HST 124gr. The only problems we had were my errors like putting my finger on slide or limp wristing. Besides those few errors, it has shot wonderful!

We got the solid black CCP.

100% NOW

Slide does not lock back with Freedom Munitions, everything else 100%. Wife loves gun and it is her EDC with HPR 124 gr JHP and as closed to 100% reliable as can be with human element involved. 315 rds no issues at all.:)

Fear kills and prevents performance and confidence

I haven't personally feed at least 500 rounds
This is funny, these auto guys. When we carried S&W model 19s. 50 rounds and we carried for life.

The reason everyone expects perfection to carry is fear. They fear the gun will jam, and even worse they fear clearing the jam in time. 99% of jams is easy to clear and to clear right now. Stop the fear or get a wheel gun!:D

Most folks don't need or train enough to be confident with autos, but think they are not up to standards without one ... the only standard for civilians is not getting dead ... period. You are not required to engage when you can escape ... cops don't get that luxury.

Love my CCP which has been 100% in shooting, but if not, I do not walk in fear of a failure. A gun with so many breakin rounds may be on the line for failure. When is too much downrange for a CCW gun, a competition gun doesn't matter, if it fails you lose, a CCW gun fails, you die. But, jams aren't failures, just a fun time to perform under stress. If I were a bad guy, I would worry about getting shot as a jam in a gunfight with a well maintained gun is NOT in their favor by any means!

I have been lurking here for five weeks.

Bought a CCP for my son three weeks ago. Stainless with an 80xx serial number.

I have become more concerned for his Saftey shooting it, but our experience has not resembled most of what I have read on the forum.

400 rounds later (all Blazer brass 115 gr), and there has only been two failures to eject in the last three hundred rounds. The first hundred was no fun, with a failure nearly every magazine. After a good cleaning though, it's been a good expirence.

I have had my stainless since Jan 24, serial WK0059xx. I have about 800 rounds through it. I have mostly shot Blazer brass 115 fmj or Winchester 115 fmj. I had about 3 FTF in the first 100 rounds, since then, nada. It has performed flawlessly since.

I picked up my CCP on 3-4-15, went to the range about a week later after disassemling and cleaning it. Fired 200 rounds through it, all different brands of ammo:

American Eagle 115 gr 1 stovepipe 50 rds
Remington UMC 115 gr 0 problems 50 rds
Monarch 115 gr 0 problems 50 rds
Blazer 115 gr 0 problems 50 rds

Haven't had a chance to get back to the range for more, but I did get some pics from after the range before I cleaned it. It gets pretty dirty, but I never had a problem with it due to that. I've attached pics of the piston, the underside of the slide, the feed ramp, the entrance of the cylinder for the piston, and looking down the striker spring channel for any signs of a hole in there. Serial # is in the 0083xx range.

Not sure what else I can tell you. Trigger is still a little rough, but it's getting better. Hoping to get back to the range this weekend and do some more shooting. :)

Do these pistols still come with a date, presumably near the time of production and final inspection/testing? It would be interesting to add that as well. I know the spent casing is no longer required and that small envelope has typically been signed and dated in the past is no longer included. Is the target dated? In other words would it be possible to keep a track of pistol manufacture by date as well as serial number.

I'm seeing a few changes already. The three rings on the piston....#2, 3 and 4 that have been machined down on some are apparently no longer even on other pistons. Just a smooth shaft.

Ricktheski, after having problems with the first 100 rounds, what do you attribute the turn to 100% reliability to? Cleaning and lubing the pistol, break in, better understanding of grip technique, ammo change, magazine cleaning.....what? ;) M1911

Ulrich, I see you are in Arnsberg. Do you work at Walther? If not, you are at least close enough to take a tour. There have been some long standing questions regarding exactly what goes on in Arnsberg with regard to the design, testing and manufacture of Walther firearms. Specifically Ulm vs Arnsberg firearms. On one hand some think Ulm has nothing to do with Umarex/Arnsberg and other say some components of the PPQ, P99, etc roll down the same assembly line with the same Walther personnel as the P22, PK 380 and CCP. I expect some components are contracted out....perhaps springs, etc.

If you can add any clarity to this, spill the beans if you can. Thanks. M1911

I honestly don't know. I don't have a ton of experience, so am hesitant to guess.

I have been told I tend to lube my guns on the heavy side. I lubed it after the first hundred. I know it helped, but aside from that...

I don't know what you do, but if it is on the office side it doesn't matter but, if you are working the streets or battlefield in all types of weather that can become an issue. It attracts dirt, grit, and ghosts that can haunt you and your gun when it is needed. Lube is good like candy, but like Candy it can hurt you if use too much!:)

I've had mine for 3 weeks now. WK0091xx serial number in black Cerakote.
After approx 500 rounds of WWB,Federal white box & Remington UMC,I've only had 2 stovepipe & 1 FTF.
No loose slivers of metal, Navy SEAL sand in the trigger, crazy amateurish metal work or unexplained holes in the slide.
And after lots of practice,study & generous lubing,the rear slide latch is broken-in nicely and am not
experiencing no problems getting the slide unlatched or latched. It is now very easy to break-down & reassemble.
The trigger was rough at first, but after 4 cleaning/lubing sessions (I clean my Walthers/AR15/PS90 after every range session),
it is starting to smooth itself out but still needs more range time to get it where I need it.
Still can't get used to that long trigger reset,though.

Back at the range today

I was able to get to the range again today and only took the CCP and my XDs 9 with me. Fired 400 rounds through both of them, mostly the CCP. I put 250 through the CCP and another 150 through the XDs. 250 of it was Remington UMC and the other 150 was WWB mixed between the two guns. Did not have a single issue with either round or either gun. The CCP got kinda warm, both the frame and the slide, but my main concentration was on shooting it the CCP more than the XDs. I was also trying to compare the recoil of both pistols and I have to say that the CCP does appear to have a reduced recoil compared to the XDs. While the trigger still needs to smooth out more, I am hooked on the CCP. Now if I can get the girlfriend to go to the range with me on her day off to shoot it more, she might like it over her PK380.

I have no complaints about the CCP at this time and it looks like I might have gotten one with a little bit of revision on it from what I've seen in various pictures. I have a stainless barrel with the stainless slide and there are 3 grooves on the necked down section of the piston. I've seen pictures of one that had no grooves on the piston like mine, but that's the only one so far.

Griff :D
