Hey all,

First post here and registered here specifically to make this post.

I have owned a PPX since 2015 and have loved it since I got it. To this point in time I have over 3000+ rounds through it and I have to tell any of you that have a new one or haven't put more than 500 rounds through the one you do have, this thing REALLY gets comfortable after that point.

The slide rack is like butter (still crisp, but very smooth and natural). The magazines get the perfect amount of stiffness to them without always needing to use a thumb-saving speed loader. This thing is also still a nail-driver to this day. It can take a lot of abuse and lack of cleaning (i am pretty religious about cleaning mine since I initially tested it). I have never had a FTE or FTF using just about every kind of ammo you can think of in it (mine is 9mm) including a box of reloads from a friend of my father-in-law.

It is a focal point every time I take it to the range. At least one person there wants to ask me about it after watching me drill out the middle of a target within 1-2 mags.

I also own a PK380 and my EDC is a PPS (first gen). I love both of those as well (although the PPS can be a pain to shoot in .40). the PK380 I had problems with first round I ever loaded after purchasing and took to the range. The slide just.. flew off. Took it back to store and they told me Walther was taking it in for service directly to Germany, all costs covered. After ~2weeks it was ready for pickup and Walther had essentially completely re-built it and it has been fantastic to shoot ever since.

Just wanted to post this to say that the PPX was the first handgun I ever purchased and it set the bar for me big time. If you're browsing these forums and deciding on whether it's worth the buy; IT IS. They don't make them anymore, so get one while they are decently priced. I have a feeling in 10 - 15 years this will be one that people are searching for because they will still be just as reliable, accurate, and praised as they are now.
