Hi all,

Looking to get a PPQ M2 5" .22. Live in a nordic country where gun laws stipulate .22 as first gun. So PPQ .22 it is.

What holsters can one buy? Same as PPQ M2 9mm?
Where can one get magazine holsters?

Thanks for a great forum!

Apparently, the PPQ .22, while most likely would fit the same accessories and holsters, as the 9mm variant, it is not the same gun. If I was going to buy a Walther, I would get a P22. Or in your case, I'd look for a Sig with a .22 conversion kit. Add a 9mm slide and magazine when your laws permit, and you have the best of both worlds.

Thanks, so holster is solved then. I will go for Glock when 9mm permit is availbale. Been shooting (service) both Sig and Glock and latter is what I will go for regarding 9mm.

Where can one find magazine holsters? Or can one use P22 magazine holsters for PPQ 22lr magazines?

Thanks.

The P22 is definitely a different gun. Here in the states, the P22 is commonplace, about $100+ less than a PPQ .22 (my LGS had them on sale for $219) and the P22 is generally well regarded. Albeit the Ruger SR22 and S&W M&P .22 would be the first choice for many American buyers, for a non-target, non-mouse gun. I have no idea if these brands are even available in Europe, and if they were, would they cost a premium?

What?????????....the PPQ .22 is the better pistol. It is a full size pistol the same size as other PPQs. Walther also makes the very similar but uglier Smith M&P 22. All the beans are going into the PPQ. The slide is aluminum not zinc. Better sights. I like the 5" version. Unfortunately the grips are the same size as the PPQs and are just a bit too large for my girly hands. The breech face and extractor really work on this pistol...something the P22 needs...along with a lighter aluminum slide so it wouldn't be so ammo picky. The five inch version should be darned accurate. My old 2007 5" p22 will put five rounds in a 5/8" group from 25M from a Ransom type rest. How much more accurate do you need? I don't have one due to the grip size but have shot the Smith and it was 100%. The Walther should be equally good and is better looking. Keep us posted....can't help on holsters but I would think it would fit a PPQ holster....unless I've been drinking too much.

Actually I'm in MD Anderson for bladder cancer removal and 16 needle biopsy in the morning of my prostate so I might be out of it even if I don't have any drugs.:p OH yeah....the 5" one is the one I would want. 1917

I've yet to see a good barrel in the Smith M&P compact. That one is made by Smith and every barrel I've seen is terrible. They replaced mine twice, each worse than the previous. I finally asked is that the best they have? Yep they said. I got rid of it. 9" groups at 21' from a rest. Pitiful. Walther makes the full size one. 1917

I would also add that the P22 isn't really well regarded. Zinc slide and frame. Many, many problems over the years although the new ones are better. No sight options. It is Walthers best selling pistol....partially due to sales like $225 dollars which is what I paid for my QD model. The zinc slide is heavy and the pistol will not function without good high velocity ammo. I like them, have purchased six or more over the years but they are not the best .22 around by a long shot. The PPQ would be a definite step up. 1917

Come on over OldFart...they have some long halls here. We could tape some targets on the doors and have at it. Ft Worth isn't too far from Houston. I'm over here giving my cancer what for....or, perhaps not. But my trigger finger is still working. :eek: 1917

Not from what I've read...

I passed on the P22 in favor of the PPQ .22 - a choice I haven't regretted.

The P22 is not well-liked overall, and the PPQ has better materials and reliability.

I've only had my PPQ .22 a short while, but it functions well with target and sv ammo and has an overall high quality feel to it.

I have a new Taurus TX22 as well, and the PPQ is better in every way as far as I'm concerned.

PPQ 22lr has a better extractor but to me, that is not worth paying the extra $100. I upgraded the extractor on my girlfriend’s P22 for $18 and it’ll feed and eject anything.

If the only 9mm’s you have been shooting are Glocks and Sig’s, you need to find someone with a REAL, Ulm made, PPQ to shoot. The 22lr is nice but it’s no PPQ. Close, but not really, if you know what I mean.

That makes a PPQ $82 more than a P22...

I think anyone that owns or has fired them both will think it's worth the difference for a PPQ.

It may not be a "real" PPQ, but as far as a fun .22 goes it's pretty good. I like it for what it is, and don't think of it as a "trainer" for my .45.

I agree the PPQ 9mm is a step above, and if I were considering buying a 9mm it would probably be my first choice.
