TTAG awarded its highest accolade to the Walther PPQ in .45 and the PPQ M2 (5″ Slide). Both guns offer five-star ergonomics, reliability and accuracy. The PPQ could well have the best out-of-the-box polymer striker-fired handgun trigger money can buy. So Walther’s new 10 round (15 wth extended grip spare mag) PPQ SC Sub-Compact pistol is bound to be . . .
an unimpeachable choice for concealed carry. Especially as it sports the Walther’s Quick Defense trigger. With a bit of luck we’ll shoot it at SHOT today. But a review is in the works. Meanwhile, here’s the presser and pics of the plenty pricey pistol ($649 MSRP):
FORT SMITH, Ark. – -(Ammoland.com)- Walther Arms, Inc. is proud to announce the newest member of the PPQ family, the PPQ M2 Sub-Compact (part number – 2815249).
The new Sub-Compact features the signature Walther ergonomics plus the fantastic Quick Defense trigger, which has a 5.6 pound trigger pull and smooth audible resets. For maximum versatility, the PPQ SC comes with one ten round magazine, and one fifteen round magazine.
The included fifteen round magazine has a grip extension sleeve that provides control and ergonomics similar to the full-size PPQ. This will increase accuracy downrange while offering the advantages of a versatile carry/training platform.
