Since you’re brand new to firearms and this is your first purchase I’d consider sending it back to Walther but maybe you might want to have a gunsmith look it over first? Even without cleaning your trigger shouldn’t stick. What you don’t want to do is spend money on what would otherwise be a warranty item. Others here are way more adept with technical savvy than I and will no doubt give good guidance.
I can tell you that the PPS is a well made gun so don’t fret as your new toy just gets its first kinks worked out. Mine was briefly prone during its breakin period. Welcome to the forum and looking forward to following this. Please continue to post your progress and outcome and don’t leave us hanging!
Call Ft Smith....the phone number should be on the back of the service manual. Explain what it is doing. If they can't offer a quick and 100% effective remedy they will e-mail you a shipping label for you to send it in for free service. People don't purchase a serious self defense firearm and put up with this kind of stuff....well, perhaps CCP owners...but I digress. They will ship it back at no cost to you as well. 1917
The power of the recoil is what cycles a new round and resets the trigger. As long as it resets when you rack the slide, you're good. Firing a live round will rack and reset it when you actually fire it.
If it doesn't reset after racking it, send it back to Walther. In a week you'll have a new trigger complete with a trigger tuning.
I also experienced some oddities with mine when it was brand new. I was able to dry fire it and the trigger would sometimes reset. The next day I started dry firing again and then the slide would lock open. I just attributed it to something breaking in or figured that was normal since it was my first gun. Looking back, I probably should've sent it in before I put 700 rounds through it. Now it's at Walther awaiting parts from Germany..
I purchased a PPS M2 back in January. I cleaned and lubed it and took to the range. I fired 127 rounds of various ammunition. I had 5 failures. 3 fail to ejects and 2 fail to load. The ones that wouldn’t load were hollow points. I am thinking that the edges were getting hung up in the gap of...
I read the owners manual on how to disassemble the extended magazine (medium or large floorplate) for the PPS M2. The first step is to use a small screwdriver and lift the Dust Cover's left and second its right front end gently a little bit (0.04") off the floorplate. Next it says lift...
Last week I purchased a Walther PPS M2.* So far I shot a total of 100 rounds through it.* After cleaning my Walther PPS M2 I noticed there was a peening mark on the right side of the barrel near the feed ramp.* Is this normal? *Is this going to damage my gun? Will I need to sent it out...
