Picked up a PDP 4" Compact today and put 100 rounds through it. 1" groups at 10 yards, 2" at 15 yards, 4" at 25 yards. I think I can tighten up the 25 yard shot once I mount an optic. Here's my take in comparison to the PPQ M2 4" which I've owned for over a year:

1) The ergonomics of the PDP are really a nice improvement over already nice ergonomics on the PPQ. The stippling is very grippy - hope this holds up over the long term. What's really different about the ergonomics for me is the balance of the PDP. My PPQ always felt a little nose heavy. The PDP feels much more center balanced., Also, I weighed both guns and the PDP is 1.5 oz lighter.

2). The recoil impulse is noticeably milder on the PDP.

3). The barrels appear to be identical between the PPQ and the PDP - although Walther says they added some new taper thing on the chamber.

4). My PPQ M2 Alien Gear holster doesn't work with the PDP

5). The optic cut looks very nice - it's cut way down into the slide which I'm sure will allow most optics to allow co-witness with the sights. I will be mounting a Swampfox Sentinel on the slide when I receive the optics plate from Walther (hopefully this won't be a long waiting period).

6). The trigger is better than my PPQ. The PDP has a about a 1/.2" of take-up before hitting the wall with a really crisp break and no creep at all. My PPQ has the same take-up but has a small amount of creep during the break - nothing major - but I'm glad Walther got rid of this.

All in all, for $600, this seems like a really quality firearm and good value for the money. I'm thinking this is going to be an everyday carry and car/truck gun for me.

With belt loops, the weapon rides very close to the body, which is good for concealment. It can be used for competition/range/duty use with paddles, offset mounts, or leg rigs.

TENICOR HOLSTERS
TENICOR VELO4 AIWB HOLSTER
FITS: PDP 4″ COMPACT / PDP 4″ & 4.5″ FULL SIZE

The VELO holster is intelligently designed, easy to conceal, and built for every day. It is an “appendix carry” holster intended to be worn in front of the hip around one o’clock (for right-handed shooters). Bulky heavy clothes are no longer required; the VELO holster enhances your ability to carry a gun every day, even in tailored or athletic fit clothing.
Each holster is molded to our Trucise™fit, which creates a uniquely secure holster with a smooth and consistent draw.
Profiled at the top, the VELO supports most conventional slide-mounted red dot sights.

The dual tension screws enable subtle adjustments and security.

TENICOR CERTUM3 IWB/AIWB HOLSTER
FITS: PDP 4″ COMPACT

The CERTUM3 is Tenicor’s take on the classic fold-over inside-the-waistband holster. The streamlined profile and precision molding create a sleek, intelligently designed holster. Excess is eliminated, and the result is unencumbered and precise performance.

The mid-ride shirt guard is carefully profiled to allow for an unencumbered high thumb grip.
The gun sits low to optimize concealment but high enough so the belt does not interfere with a full grip of the gun for consistency and speed. The height adjustment of the attachment options can be dialed in for a precise carry position.
Profiled at the top, the CERTUM3 supports most conventional slide-mounted red dot sights.

Reminds me in some ways of the Hudson...but that one had it's own set of issues. A big reason why I have a hard time warming up to some of these new manufacturers. Not to say that it's bad, like you, I do think that's a pretty interesting design.


Phoenix Redback

Now those guys have a track record (Sphinx) of building some high quality guns, I kinda like what they are doing, but the price...yeah...don't think I like them enough to invest, because I'm not sure it'll do anything better than what I have now..
You also have Pardini as a possibility.
The 5 way adjustable trigger is insanely good. Even high dollar 1911 collectors are impressed by the trigger in my GT9 6".

It's 8-12 business days on the optics plate per Walther. PPQ molded holsters are too tight for the PDP, but perhaps a PPQ would work in a PDP holster. Waiting on mine from Dara.

Picked up a PDP 4" Compact today and put 100 rounds through it. 1" groups at 10 yards, 2" at 15 yards, 4" at 25 yards. I think I can tighten up the 25 yard shot once I mount an optic. Here's my take in comparison to the PPQ M2 4" which I've owned for over a year:

1) The ergonomics of the PDP are really a nice improvement over already nice ergonomics on the PPQ. The stippling is very grippy - hope this holds up over the long term. What's really different about the ergonomics for me is the balance of the PDP. My PPQ always felt a little nose heavy. The PDP feels much more center balanced., Also, I weighed both guns and the PDP is 1.5 oz lighter.

2). The recoil impulse is noticeably milder on the PDP.

3). The barrels appear to be identical between the PPQ and the PDP - although Walther says they added some new taper thing on the chamber.

4). My PPQ M2 Alien Gear holster doesn't work with the PDP

5). The optic cut looks very nice - it's cut way down into the slide which I'm sure will allow most optics to allow co-witness with the sights. I will be mounting a Swampfox Sentinel on the slide when I receive the optics plate from Walther (hopefully this won't be a long waiting period).

6). The trigger is better than my PPQ. The PDP has a about a 1/.2" of take-up before hitting the wall with a really crisp break and no creep at all. My PPQ has the same take-up but has a small amount of creep during the break - nothing major - but I'm glad Walther got rid of this.

All in all, for $600, this seems like a really quality firearm and good value for the money. I'm thinking this is going to be an everyday carry and car/truck gun for me.
Great post and very helpful!! I have a PPQ SC that is absolutely incredible. It is definitely smaller than than the PDP C 4". A little shorter and more concealable. That said, I prefer shooting my PPQ SC with the 15Rd Mag w/extension Sleeve. So that balances out the height difference making them virtually the same. Therefore the PDP-C 4" is just a little longer. So this is very appealing considering it is optic ready for a RDS. Since I have the PPQ SC already, and HK VP-9SK and Sig P365XL, maybe the PDPD 4.5" makes more sense as a range and home defense RDS addition.

Did you consider the 4.5" with its 18RD capacity?

I wanted mag compatibility with my PPQ and a more concealable frame - so I went with the compact frame. Apparently, the 4.5 inch barrel and/or slide will work on the compact frame.

T.REX-ARMS HOLSTERS
T.REX-ARMS – Ragnarok – OWB
FITS: PDP 4″ COMPACT / PDP 4″ & 4.5″ FULL SIZE

While not necessary for maintaining retention, all Ragnarok holsters can accommodate slide-mounted optics, threaded barrels, suppressor height sights, and select compensators.

The main thing that makes the Ragnarok unique is the modular hole system on the back that accommodates a variety of mounting options from Safariland, G-Code, Blackhawk, Bladetech, S&S Precision, and our own belt loops. With belt loops, the weapon rides very close to the body, which is good for concealment. It can be used for competition/range/duty use with paddles, offset mounts, or leg rigs.

Profiled at the top, the VELO supports most conventional slide-mounted red dot sights.

I wanted mag compatibility with my PPQ and a more concealable frame - so I went with the compact frame. Apparently, the 4.5 inch barrel and/or slide will work on the compact frame.
That makes perfect sense. I assume you had some 15 round PPQ mags and they work in the PDP?

I just checked my local gun shop and they don't expect to see any for a couple of months. They were well aware of the PDP and very very impressed by it.

I wonder if you could put a PDP 4" slide on an SC frame?

I kinda doubt it would match up since the PPQ SC is a 3.5" barrel. But who knows? I suppose that would give you a shorter grip profile and offer the optic aspect that the PDP slide offers. Not sure it really makes sense?

Hopefully Walther will release the slides out for purchase for folks in commie states. Cant get the PDP due to handgun roster laws so stuck with my trusty PPQM2.

Walther calls the PDP "modular" and the plan is to release slides and frames as individual SKUs.

ETA: I shot my PDP slide on my PPQ M1 frame this weekend and it worked like a champ.
