I've taken it to the range 3 times, but cleaned it at least 5 times, including one before first firing.
I don't trust cleaning down to field strip level only, so I usually take my guns in for a thorough cleaning annually. Since I haven't had this one a year yet, it hasn't gone in. My old, arthritic hands might not be able to get it back together, if I tried deep cleaning on my own.
I've taken the slide off, looked at it, disassembled and reassembled, but the slide just lays down on the barrel and scrapes now.
Sorry lot's of posts here, maybe I missed it. Has Walther been contacted and what do they say? Any obvious or more than usual ware or scratch marks between the barrel and slide. Might not be a bad idea to clean the gun of all existing oil, completely dry. Then use white grease in the area's of concern. Once in a while the white grease will give a clue to the problem area.
If you apply the white grease to the affected area's, slide, barrel, and where you see the scratches. Move the slide a few times to see where the grease is dispersed. It's not perfect, but sometimes this will reveal an improper fit, mis-alignment or area's on the surfaces that don't match up.
So...I recently obtained a PPX. Finally switched over to it, and my magazines rattle like a snake.
In between about 11 and 14 rounds, the cartridges rattle around in the magazine. The first one I loaded rattled as I walked around. The second rattles if I shake it.
I carry my PPX concealed. I...
...I have to say how much fun I had shooting mine the other day. Sure, it is homely as a mud fence - certainly the most unappealing pistol design I own. But that trigger - wow. It verged on boring to shoot a big hole in targets at my standard 30 feet away.
This pistol represents an...
Hello there I recently purchased a Walther PPQ M1 Q4 TAC but discovered a Navy edition after. I was wanting the more durable gun possible and wanting to know if the Walther PPQ M1 Q4 TAC had the same water resistance and corrosion resistance as the PPQ Navy. Wanting to make sure I made correct...
I would love a new 9mm carry pistol. I can't find new PPX SD 9mm pistols in stores and only overpriced ones online. Did I just look at the wrong sites? This is a great Walther. I honestly must admit I didn't know the PPX and Creed existed.
Picked up a SD model last week and went to the range to put some rounds through it. Put twenty rounds of some cheap target ammo into a target at fifteen meters and got a pretty good grouping. (this is the first actual handgun I've ever owned) This is where I'm probably going to get some grief. I...
