Hello all, first time poster.

Because of all the discussion over the PPX, I just had to register and chime in.

I love many different brands of guns so be assured I am not biased in my findings.

I went to the LGS and laying there was a spanky new PPX 9mm for $399.

I gave it a real good look over.

Fit and finish was very good. The barrel muzzle was not a perfect fit to the slide. It sat low in the hole. I've seen that on other pistol brands of late. My SIG P938 extreme has the same issue. Doesn't make it less functional but to some it may be off putting.

The grip felt good in the hand. The gun felt chunky but it's length is a bit shorter and height is a tad higher than a glock 17.

It was very easy to take down.

Double action offers no second strike.

Trigger action is very smooth and precise. it was quite surprisingly nice.

Magazine ejects with confidence. Slide was very easy to rack.

I compared it to the PPQ M2 next to it.

Now we see why it commands a higher price.

Fit and finish was a cut above. Muzzle to slide alignment was spot on.

The material used for the frame felt a lot better.

The PPQ was also a little more compact.

I have to say I would not hesitate to buy the PPX.

I should have bought it there and then but I also think the PPQ is great.

I suspect I will do the same thing I did when I went through my Ruger GP100 vs S&W 686 dilemma.

I bought both.

Thanks for reading.

I'd agree with your assessment except no range time?? I own a PPX and have put around 500 rounds down range with the PPQ. Two different triggers, slightly better quality with the PPQ but the range time is key!!!

I agree range time is key.

Just sharing my thoughts for people who agonize over buying a new gun. I am sure many first time buyer lurkers skim these (and others) boards. All they want is a good value gun to buy.

I see quite a few people nowadays buying guns for the first time.

Just trying to help these people make informed decisions.

The PPX is a stunning buy at $400.

I kind of missed out on buying a PPQ about 1.5 years ago, as the price was $449 or so as I recall. I went with a G19 at the time, another great buy as I get them at Blue Label.
