    Walther PPQ M2

    Hey Walther fans.. I am a brand new Pistol Owner and I made the PPQ M2 my first investment.

    I seem to have decided to jump in the tank at the worst possible time since prices and availability are so out of wack..but I couldn't wait any longer.

    I have yet to shoot the gun.. I just brought it home yesterday .. but I am absolutely giddy about putting some rounds through it. I did as much homework on the purchase as I could with out making my eyes bleed and I didn't find much bad about it other than some people were pissy about the new mag eject button placement. I was leaning heavily towards a Glock as my first acquisition as most of my (short) hand gun experience has been with the G19... but since I can't seem to find a Gen4 in 9mm ANYWHERE.. I saw and tried out the Walther PPQ.

    Most of the positive reviews say it's got a lot of Glock qualities but it's even better..and Im hoping it will prove that way for me.

    Anyone out there Own or shoot the M2's yet? Curious of your review if you have anything to say.

    I haven't, but a friend of mine has had one now for a few months.

    He's a very discerning shooter and he says he's happy with it. That speaks volumes for the gun.

    Enjoy and be safe!

    Thanks Paratrooper.. I played hookie from work today and put a box of rounds through it at the range. It feels great and shoots straight!

    I love my choice so far!

    No preference on an M2, but I have an M1 and absolutely love it. The very first time I fired it, it gave a nice 5-6 in goruping at 25 yards (for a firearm that I have never fired before, I think that is pretty good). It has only gotten better the more I use it.

    I am sort of lost as to why the PPX (.40S&W) holds 14 rounds (Economy Walther) and the PPQ holds 11( and that's their premium firearm?)

    PPQ is a good platform. But coming out with the M2 that takes it's own proprietary magazines not the M1, P99, Baby Eagle however was an error. Mechanically I understand why. I also get the mag button versus dual paddles option (although I prefer the paddles) but not the proprietary mag's without supplying said mags to the market for sale and at the same time making M1 PPQ variants all but extinct for purchase I don't get. Just when Walther was starting to gain some momentum in in the US. Hopefully they will get magazine supply up to speed. Owners of other platforms with drawers full of magazines for their Glock's, Sig's, etc. who are interested in this model are going to be a tough sell until supply catches up. I have also heard that the raised area surrounding the magazine button on the M2's is pretty pronounced and can cause some hand discomfort issues but that is going to be subjective as we all have different sized hands obviously. Food for thought for those contemplating getting one. It's crossed my mind but these issues make my P99 the better bet for me.
