Default Walther PPQ

Just bought a Walther PPQ at NFA for 560.00. Great price and great service as always, I couldn't find it cheaper trust me I looked. That place always makes me feel like family I bring my 3 yr old son Nick and he gets hugs from everyone. Now about the gun, WHAT A GREAT GUN with the small back strap it fits my hand perfect. I havent shot it yet but will give a report after I do. I love my Glocks but so far this gun is right up there.

Congrats! I only have one range session through mine and shot a nice ragged hole. It's light but shoots accurately. It's weird to dry fire because of the slide geometry and reset point

I see it has a plactic recoil rod, not a big fan of those but Glock has had them for years with no problem. Once a metal one comes out that would be the only thing I would change. I just like steel ones.

I've been really interested in this little gun ever since its release. Haven't had a chance to fondle or shoot one yet. Hopefully it will change this weekend as Mr. Tuna and I are planning on heading out to the range

No doubt you will be shooting it! The internals are very Glock like. The difference must be in the striker block. I am not finding the trigger as great as the hype put out by nutnfancy.

After playing with it at your house, my concern is definitely the mag release. I was having a bit of trouble dropping the mag with my trigger finger, although the large back strap probably contributed to the issue.

I held and dry fired one at shot show and the
trigger is better than some of the stock Glock's i have felt. The mag release
don't bother me due to having shot a SW99 for a few years and has a similar release. Ergo's were great. There are just way to many pistols in it's class for it to standout to me.

I can tell you that it is alot better than FN's new striker fired gun, that felt cheap and reminded me of a Taurus. I did however enjoy grouping the Scar, Fn p90 and Fs2000.

P.S. I doubt we will see Dave Sevigny shooting it the new FNS...

Those rifles were nice, but I was totally blown away by the 2 version of G36 at the HK booth. It was the first time I had a chance to play with one and I was totally addicted to how light they were, the ergos, the stocks... Wow!

Try your middle finger, I think it works easier.

I did and it did. However, as I understand it the whole idea of having a trigger guard-mounted mag release is the ability to drop the mag with your trigger finger without shifting your grip on the gun.
