Aside from the hole being milled on the slide, anything else structurally different? Are the striker springs (noting the Navy is blue) different weight? How do the spring cups differ other than the cutouts? Thanks for sharing, BTW.

As far as the blackstrap goes, you can get non-marked ones for the regular PPQ if you request it from walther, so in terms of the grip their identical

I have requested, yet not received. Not a huge deal to me, but their litereature in their PPQ packaging does indicate they will do this.

The striker spring is supposed to be heavier according to the website.

Carl Walther GmbH

I'm wondering if this raises the pull weight of the trigger break?
Technically it shouldn't. The striker is 100% cocked in a PPQ, so the break has nothing to do with the strength of the striker spring. However, a stronger striker spring would aid in firing ammunition with heavier primers etc.

What is interesting is that the Navy has a normal serial number, as opposed to the FE "PPQ" numbers.

The firing pin spring cups are similar to the "under water" spring cups available for the Glock. They are shaped to allow more space in the firing pin channel for water to move out of the way faster so it could function under water.

The drain hole in the bottom of the slide is standard on all Glocks. Advantage is it allows water to drain out. Disadvantage is it allows dirt to be blown in. Take your pick.

According to the Walther web page, the Navy PPQ has the Tenifer finish. They don't mention Tenifer for the regular PPQ.

My "standard" PPQ came with non-RFID backstraps. I looked at your pictures and they are great. What confuses me, is the DE & BC markings on the slide. My markings match the Navy, but no drain hold on the slide.

Does the "DE" show country of origin (Germany) and the BC stand for the plant or origin?

Thanks.
