Walther is probably through the worst of the onslaught of PPS M2 returns now. If so, they can get to them as soon as they arrive and have them back to shipping for the evening pick-up.

OK, this VERY delayed but I'm making good on my word to report back, and to add to the anecdotal evidence here.



I finally got to the range about a month ago, after several months away (life being what it is). I put 50 rounds of Federal 115gr Target (red box) and Winchester (I think) 124gr NATO through the gun. No problems at all, as expected.

I do think the trigger is a tad bit grittier and a little stiffer, but it certainly was not enough to have any noticeable effect on my shooting. Any groups that were not up to par for me had everything to do with how long it had been since last shot.

That was my experience. I did note, however, that it was shipped back to me essentially dry. After a cleaning a lube it was a little better, but still not quite as nice as I recall it being before.

Had it to the range once since I got it back. I'm now shooting slightly to the left at ±25 feet, whereas, previously, I was right on the money. I'll have to have it out again, and pay better attention to what I'm doing, to determine whether that's me or the sight needs to be moved.

Just got my CCW and went with the PPS M2 LE for my first handgun.
Glad to see it's not on the recall list.

I pick up my PPS M2 LE from the FFL tomorrow. Hope it's not on the recall list too.

Edited to add: Picked it up earlier this afternoon from my FFL. Serial no. AXnnnn, so it looks like I'm safe as far as the recall goes. I will say that the trigger right out of the box is pretty awful, though. Heavy and gritty. Time to break out the polishing stones.

I just got mine shipped today. I’ll report back on turnaround and trigger differences once I get it back. Being late to the game, maybe it will be quick.
Got mine back on Monday, 7.1. Trigger actually feels pretty good, and I’m happy with how quick the turnaround was for the recall.

Go to Walthers's web site for the recall, enter the required information, print the label, get a box from FedEx and pack PPS with case in the box. Finally bring to FedEx. Be home to receive it.

Go through the posts here about the recall. Getting the label to display on your computer can be difficult. There is guidance on how to get it to display so you can print it.

A lot of people complained the trigger worsened after the recall. I dry fired a bunch of time but by the time I got my PPS back I couldn't remember what the original felt like.

One thing I recently did - and documented elsewhere here - was pull the striker assembly, wipe it and the channel down and reassemble. That really smoothed out the trigger pull.

I will have to look into that. I don't have a complaint about my trigger no do I recall there being any difference between pre and post recall performance.

I assume by pulling the striker assembly that one is removing the firing pin and firing pin spring and cleaning the said channel and nothing more?

That's worth doing regardless I am sure.

Thanks,

I just shipped both of my PPS out this morning.
I’ve read that the issue was with the trigger safety so I marked the sides of each one to see if that was part of the recall.

Got it back today. Looks like they replaced it but they marred it a little on both guns.
I didn’t get any stickers like others have reported.
The trigger feels the same to me.

Apologies for taking so long to reply.

Yes, after making sure the PPS was safe I removed the side's back plate (push in on the little block there with something non-marring) keeping my thumb over the exposed area so nothing launches across the room. Removed the firing pin assembly, wiped it down with a dry patch and wiped out the channel with a dry Q-Tip. Reassembled and much smoother.
