No guns are more in demand these days than pistols for concealed carry. Check out our most popular posts and you’ll see reviews of single stack striker-fired guns prominently represented. The latest entry for your consideration: Walther’s PPS M2. It’s out now in 9mm (their site mentions .40 S&W, too) with a 3.2″ barrel, a slim 1″ carry-friendly width and 6+1 (flush) or 7+1 (extended) capacity. If it follows form with most of their pistols, you can expect a worthy trigger, too. We’ll have one this week so expect a review in short order. Here’s Walther’s press release . . .
(FORT SMITH, Ark.) – New to the Walther line of personal protection pistols is the PPS M2, an innovative new 9mm pistol that sets the bar for ergonomics and comfort for concealed carry. The new PPS M2 is engineered for the concealed carry shooter looking for a slim 9mm that provides superior concealability while maintaining comfort and accuracy. The new PPS M2 is built to carry, measuring in at 1 inch wide, low profile and smooth features. This coupled with a new push button style magazine release for easy operation, highlights some of the changes from the Classic PPS to the new M2.
The new PPS M2 is equipped with a smooth, light 6.1 lb trigger pull, which improves control and accuracy. The PPS M2 can be the perfect fit for every shooter with Carl Walther signature ergonomics, that have become a staple in 21st Century Walther Arms. The PPS M2 is also available in an LE edition with phosphoric sights.
Adam Blalock, Walther Arms CEO stated, “I have been really excited about the PPS M2 since the beginning of its development. The PPS Classic has been my everyday carry gun for years. It’s a great gun and the idea of improving on the original was challenging … but our team has done it. The engineering enhancements and modifications that create the new M2 truly elevate this pistol into a class of its own.”
Adding the PPS M2 to the Walther handgun line is a prime example of Walther’s dedication to continued innovation and customer focus in the fast growing personal protection industry. The PPS M2 will be available in retail stores in early 2016. It will also be available to test at Industry Day at the Range at SHOT Show and viewing on the showroom floor during the show in Las Vegas, NV January 18th – 22nd.
