As you can see from my posts I am new to this forum and new to the Walther Creed. I was looking for a non striker, hammer fired D/A pistol with a large magazine capacity and settled on the Creed. So far so good. I have a question for the long time Walther owners and enthusiasts. I have owned many guns mainly revolvers and three semi-auto pistols. I have never seen a vertical feed ramp and a little curved bed on any of the autos I have used such as: Colt, Smith & Wesson, Ruger etc. Is this new to just the Creed or does all the Walthers have this ramp configuration? And why? I know this feed ramp works with the tuned magazine because I have 640 rounds through the gun with no failures. With some of my other guns I had to polish the feed ramp a few times to get it tuned. And so, I am wondering why the other manufacturers don't use this style. Is it because its not a one piece barrel and the other armsmakers don't want to go this route?
