This may have been asked, i have searched for it but could not find it.

What exactly are they doing on these recalls? What are they replacing or fixing?

im fixing to send mine off.

I emailed Walther right after I got the recall notice with that same question and I never got a reply. It's probably something to do with lawyers, but it would have been nice to have at least gotten a reply to that affect or whatever other reason they couldn't tell me. I think it's a bit rude when someone doesn't reply at all to an email, shakes my confidence in their customer service a little.

Mine doesn't have the dimple or a scratch on the case, oh that's right I just bought it last Monday. Wish I had that cool stuff.
Everybody that’s anybody has a dimple in the mag well. <img src="http://www.waltherforums.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" />
Wish I had a dimple. 🙁

If you read through this thread, the process has been chronicled several times.

I sent the walther case in because the instructions in the email asked for it. In hindsight, yes i should have just used a random cardboard box

i just like to keep my things in immaculate condition, especially items that i value and there's nothing wrong with that. there were other prior posts that also complained about the foam in the case being torn so i thought i'd share my experience too.

by your logic, americans cant ever be upset with anything because there's always someone from a ****hole country who has it worse.

Keeping things in immaculate condition? You know that a firearm is a tool, right? Do you have tools at home that don't have scratches on them? A toolbox that has never seen the light of day?

My guns have dinks and dents and marks all over them. They typically have a lot of wear marks on them because of the use. I put 1,000 rounds into every gun immediately after purhcase before I am comfortable depending upon it with my life.

If you were a collector I could understand. Buy a gun and lock it up in a safe for potential value for your children or grandchildren. But if you aren't a collector then a case should be of no significance. A case is solely used to contain the firearm before your purchase. It has no absolute value at all.

I must be no one because I had the repair done, and still have no dimple. Initially was going to send it back after I phoned them, but they never followed up with the return label after they said they really wanted to have it back. I really don't care.

Walther had mine 2 days & it was heading back my way. Zero complaints about the turn around itself, to me that's stellar.

Above said, I'm pretty sure the trigger feel is not the same as before the fix. I have dry fired this particular PPS thousands of times before the recall fix & it doesn't feel the same now. I have to scientific way to prove it's a slightly harder/grittier pull post-fix, but it sure feels not as nice as it was prior to sending it in.

Still VERY happy with this firearm for it's intended (& actual) use, as a EDC tool.

ETA: Dimple placed as per the recall notice & my piece was also floating around inside the factory foam case. If this would've been an expensive race gun vs an inexpensive EDC weapon I'd have not been happy at all. Also, gun came back extremely dry.

Have you looked with good light and a magnifying glass? The dimple is real light on mine and it turns out there are two.

I just wanted to share my personal experience of the recall process with others, some of whom may care about the dents and dings.

If you don't care about the dents and dings then that's great, good for you. I don't want to have an online argument with you about a personal preference.

I'm probably in the minority, but I agree with you.
Kudos for taking the high road.

Yup. Got a bright flashlight up in there. No dust or anything. Definitely not there. They admitted that early on they missed some. I mailed mine 2 days after the recall was announced.

Give them a call.. sometimes it’s better to go old school and actually talk to a real live person

Dropped mine off on the 4th - last Monday. Received back today, 1 week turn around. Trigger actually feels better or I forgot what it felt like in a weeks time.

I'm with you, I like to take care of my firearms and I don't just toss them around helter skelter. I don't have anything that is collector quality, but I just like to keep them in good shape. Sure a gun can be considered a tool, but I consider it more as something to have fun with and in an emergency or critical situation, it can provide protection. Heck, a car for many is nothing more than a tool, but I spend hours keeping mine looking good and dent and scratch free (and well maintained, something else that must be done with firearms)!

If you actually USE your firearms, they will get wear and scratches.



A mint looking firearm is one that is never used. May as well invest in silver if you want a polished hunk of metal.



And we don't compare firearms to cars. Cars need registration, insurance, laws restrict them, etc.

True, there are no laws, registration, or insurance involved with guns.

By definition, we can all agree that using a gun will inevitably cause some wear, holster or otherwise. But some of us go to the little effort to minimize that, and that’s ok. I definitely use all of my guns (thousands of rounds each), and I carry each...they are all in nearly mint condition. I think the car analogy is spot on because I keep even my daily driver looking as good as possible. I really like to take care of my stuff...especially the tools I use.

You might say my guns are a polished hunk of metal. And because of that they are, just like a car or anything else for that matter, worth a helluva lot more on resale than the next one that’s all beat up and looks abused.

My son is the type that doesn’t care as long as it works. He drives at best half as much as I do and his car looks like $#!t with door dings, bumper scrapes and so on. He doesn’t even notice it. To me, it’s like a mountain; a vast bowl of pus!

Back quick

Got mine back before the holidays and didn't get a chance to shoot it until last weekend.

Got it back in about a week- everything looked good.

I didn't notice a difference in the trigger. A bit of stack like before- no complaints. Shot real well.

About as happy as I can be about a recall- Walther did it right.

I had the same problems as most others with Walther's recall site. Finally got it to work with Chrome and pop-up blocking disabled.

The instructions I received said put it in the pistol case with no mags or anything else. That I did.

Dropped it off Monday. They received it Wednesday morning. They shipped it back out Wednesday afternoon! I received it about a half hour ago. Four days door-to-door. Can't complain about the turn-around.

Trigger may be a bit stiffer than it was. Hard to say, as I haven't fired it in a while. (Coincidentally: It was scheduled for a range day last week, when I found out about the recall.) Plus I've been dry-firing for a week, and went to the range yesterday, with a 1911. So my trigger finger's a bit spoiled
Seems fine for a striker-fired carry piece meant for SD.

Neither case nor pistol suffered any discernible cosmetic damage. Case had some sticky residue on the right-hand side, which I removed with Goo Gone and a paper towel. The chamber flag did not appear to have damaged the foam.

I'm glad to have it back so quickly. My PPS M2 is my favourite carry piece.
