Is that your assumption or do you actually have conclusive evidence to support your position? I know number of old people like me (77) who have arthritis in their hands and therefore like an easier to rack pistol. I EDC a PPS M2 because it is easier for me to rack than many micro 9s. I do not want or have a safety on my pistol(s). I would have considered the EZ if it came in 9mm when I was in the market for a 9mm even though it has a safety because I do n to have to engage a safety and a grip safety is engaged in the process of gripping the gun.Condescending???? S&W is targeting new shooters and women with the EZ. Both of those demographics tend to want safeties on their guns.
Having sold hundreds of EZs for one of the top S&W dealers in the world, I think my experience with the platform counts for something. In any case I was most certainly NOT being condescending in my post.Is that your assumption or do you actually have conclusive evidence to support your position?
That’s pretty spot on. As an instructor at an LGS, this gun has a big niche. New shooters and generally those who are up in age.
Walther was making noise about a 380acp version of the CCP.Still wishing Walther would refresh the PK380. . . [/QUOTE
It would have to be a total redesign. The PK380 has always been a small niche of the market and sales in my shop have gone in the toilet since the introduction of the EZ.
It is just speculation on my part but I see that as the probable replacement for the PK380.
About the only things I would change would be to use a real hammer dropping mechanism instead of what they have, a slide release, and to look at the magazine capacity. The PK always looks like it was originally designed with a higher capacity magazine than it actually shipped with. . . it sounds like I am looking for a .380 version of my H&K P30, just smaller.
You are probably closer than my hope for a simple update of the PK380.Walther or more correctly Umarex will have to replace the PK380 at some point.
I still think the replacement will be a 380acp version of that other Umarex product the CCP.
