I just lucked out and found a local dealer that had both the compact and full size versions of the PDP. I wound up getting the full size. I also purchased a Holosun 509T, and was super excited to get this on the PDP, and out the range. I was already aware that I would have to order the red dot mounting plate, but was willing to wait. I've heard other people complain that other manufacturers supply an assortment of mounting plates that come with their firearms, why doesn't Walther? The big disappointment came when I went onto the website to place my order for my "the first plate is free", only to find out that I'm going to be charged for it, because I guess it's a new red dot model. It's not some offbrand site, why would this not wind up being one if their standard offerings? I mean you buy a pistol for almost $650, you'd think the plate would be thrown in. Rant over.
