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.
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.

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.

Body type is a definite factor. I have a 33 inch waist and weigh 160 lbs. I am quite trim, and that actually makes it difficult to conceal carry comfortably. my bones get in the way and I have no padding for cushioning. But I have found the right carry position for IWB of my PPS M2 with the 7 round magazine.

I agree ragg. The 7 round mag seems to be the sweet spot. 7 in the mag and 1 in the pipe isn't bad. Still...it would be great to see Walther do the stack and a half thing like the G43x and give us a 10 round gun with the slide profile of the PPS. We can dream right?
Funny you mention the 43X, that’s what my wife is getting for cc. She shoots it way better than the other 6 or 7 single stacks she tried.
We can dream indeed...
