Full-Sized Advantage in a Subcompact Frame: The New Walther PPQ SC

(sponsored content) If you want the advantages of a full-sized handgun in a subcompact package, Walther just released the handgun for you.

The newly released Walther PPQ SC, which debuted mere weeks ago at SHOT Show 2018, is the carry gun for gun carriers. Built off the same PPQ platform that’s already proven itself functional, not to mention extremely popular, the PPQ SC tightens things up to a subcompact size without sacrificing any of the expectations.

It’s easily one of the most capable small-stature handguns to hit the market in the last couple years.

How does the gun get to boast that sort of claim?

Let’s get it out in the open upfront: This 9mm isn’t a run-of-the-mill concealed carry gun. The PPQ SC features a noticeably different cross-directional grip pattern, which provides better control and zero slip, ideal for a smaller gun.

Interchangeable backstraps let you customize your grip and feel without compromising the PPQ SC’s performance. The slide stop is ambidextrous, as is the magazine release (though you’ll have to switch that manually yourself), and the low-profile sights are perfect for what you’ll ask of the PPQ SC.

Probably best of all, the PPQ SC carries the same Quick Defense Trigger that’s made the PPQ such a desirable gun in the first place. The 5.6 lb. trigger pull of only 0.4 inches is arguably one of the smoothest, but the greatest feature is the 0.1-inch trigger reset. Think about that: You’re able to get a second (and even third) shot off that much quicker, because you’re only traveling a smidge to rest it each time.

That translates to faster magazine dumps, sharper shooting, and a distinct advantage for all carriers.

    It’s 21 oz and 1.3 inches thick. Taking a compact size gun and chopping off the grip, barrel and 3 oz does not make it a good CCW gun. Or wow another Glock 26

      Binder there are quite a few changes made to produce the PPQ SC, it’s NOT just a chopped gun like the Glock 26. Check out this video to see the differences: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k9BSoFWDgSQ

    I’m a huge fan of the PPQ. The 5 inch is one of my carry guns. This gun would be a great pocket gun, but it needs to have 12 round mags (similar to the Glock 26) as that would TRANSFORM the gun. The 10 round mags are too small and the 15 round mags are too big (for pocket carry). Of course. if you are gonna holster this bad boy then rock on, but I prefer a larger gun on my hip.

      Mark, just how many rounds do yo need? You already have more than the Snub nose user & more than most single stack compacts.

    the really good things about Walther PPQ you don’t need a trigger job on a new gun as with others

    Why do I want this instead of a Shield?
    Or the new Sig 365?

    1. avatar Mark says:

      Because S and W support a communist government that’s why. Fuck them. The Sig looks nice though.

    2. avatar Graham Baates says:

      More capacity than a shield, more versatile (and likely better ergonomics) than a Sig.

    Wow, sponsored article, basically an advertisement in an article format… is this how the printed rags became what they became? I don’t know if my opinion matters, but this type of article is a letdown… and I own 3 original ppq’s and one in 45. I’m not hating on the brand, but people come here for the comments and articles, disguising ads as such is a turn off.

      Its not disguised, and unless you want to pay for a subscription to THETRUTHABOUTGUNS.COM, how the hell do you expect TTAG to stay in business?

      1. avatar ‘liljoe says:

        I’d be happy to pay…. I’m 99% certain I wrote that in a post over 5 years ago, and there were others who have said the same over the years.

        And yes, even if you write it’s sponsored commentary, it’s designed to look like a review article… hence the word disguise.

    I prefer the paddle magazine release
