Agreed. I think a bunch of us are curious to see how Walther handles this.keep us posted. I will be interested to see what Walther says to you. I am only at 11,000 on mine.
Hate to hear about any problems. My experience with the Walther folks has all been positive. btw, I have two PPS Classics and will be keeping them. Funny like that.Good luck. I had nothing but problems with my PPS. Those jackasses in Fort Smith didn’t do anything to fix it.
In 2004 - 05 I bought 7 P22s new, for different family members. My wife and I shoot ours the most, by far, and about five years ago both slides cracked in the very same spot yours has. I sent Walther a photo and they sent me postage paged mailing labels. Within about two weeks I received two brand new slides back. Can not remember the exact number of rounds we had put through them, but roughly 10,000 through each. At that time, several people on the Forums told me the problem was the metal alloy that had been used in the slides, which had now been changed. At present none of the other P22s we bought originally have been shot near the 10,000 rounds, but I am expecting a similar experience for the two that we bought for our boys, who were young in 2005, but now shooting regularly.
