Yeah. I don't think Walther is referring to the DDX.I doubt Walther is pushing a mish-mash of someone elses mod of their weapons. This sounds like a new pistol, and the other photos seem to show a different magazine that is slimmer. I'm hoping its not yet ANOTHER PPQ variant....
Yeah, I dunno. Maybe not enough to matter.Would a double stack PPS be any smaller than a PPQ SC or P99C?
I can't agree with this. There are many companies in the US building all metal handguns today. I've got both a PP Super and a P5 and neither looks more complicated to make than any other pistol. The real problem is that Walther has never done a very good job with their marketing in the US. They should be at least as big if not bigger than Sig, HK, and CZ.No one at Walther has the skills to make a PP Super, and there is no market for one at the price it would cost to make it if they did. It's the same reasons why the P5 can no longer be made.
I agree with your points about the PP Super and P5. I will fall out of my chair if Walther brings them back. Manufacturing is different now and the people needed to support the older manufacturing methods would be hard to come by, and expensive if you can find them.No one at Walther has the skills to make a PP Super, and there is no market for one at the price it would cost to make it if they did.

If Walther is smart it will be a small CCW pistol along the lines of the Sig P365, except they will be years late to that party, as usual. Whatever it is, I hope Walther can somehow muster the marketing chops to properly promote it, lest it become another good hand gun that is only purchased by an ever smaller group of old Walther guys like us.
I came to Walthers because of an interest in German military and police arms, long before I really noticed Bond. As a kid we only got to go to drive-in movies once in a while, stuff like Hatari and Sound of Music <shudder> and the folks wouldn’t pick something like Dr No for an outing. My first exposure was either a WWII movie on a Saturday or the Man from UNCLE on TV in ‘64 . His gun was a modified P.38. I’m guessing it started there for me.Lets face it. If it weren't for the PPK placement in Bond films Walther would be a historical footnote in the arms manufacturing histories being written about the 20th century.
