I actually took a closer look and re-adjusted my holster on Sunday (blackarch protos-m, iwb 4 o’clock) and was able to eliminate printing of the mag bottom with the 7-rd, possibly have enough room for the 8 which, from what I’ve read, is 5/16” taller. Clothes-wise, same as you shirt and jacket.OP here again - I finally found time to go to the range this past Thursday...work had been hectic for the past couple of weeks :S
As several recommended, I cleaned and reassembled putting the spring to the 'B' position. Shot 150+ rounds of 115 gr FMJ and saw no issues at all !! Man, I really like this gun, it's comfortable and accurate in hand. My only wish is that it had a larger capacity - yes I know there's an 8-rd mag but seems like it will be more difficult to conceal than the 7-rd which for me, prints a little bit at 4 o'clock. The 6-rd mag just doesn't work for my large hands.
I'm encouraged to hear the good reliability accounts on this pistol, gives me further confidence that I made the right choice for concealed carry <img src="http://www.waltherforums.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" />
Thanks everyone for the help !
Ragg, I carry with the 8rd. mag all the time, with no issues. Guess it depends on your method of carry. When I carry concealed ( which is 99% of the time ), I carry with the shirt tail out, in warm weather, and with a jacket in cold weather. Works for me. Also, wear a t-shirt underneath the shirt.
Enjoy your new PPS M2.
Body type also comes into play I think, I’ve got wide hips and could lose some 10-15lbs haha. I’ll buy the 8rd mag, if it works great if not it’ll be for backup or range.
