Thinking about getting a Walther PPQ 9mm SD Navy

Seems like a nice firearm, anyone own one or handled one? I would be interested to hear your take on it. I have read enough about them, so no it's getting close to deciding if I want to get one.

I didn't particularly care for it. I had shot an older P99 model years ago, so I looked at this recently when shopping for a new piece. I didn't care for the trigger (pull seemed a little heavy) and it feels like they cheaped out on the polymer, particularly since it runs a little light compared to size-equivalent counterparts. Best way to find out for yourself is to rent one though.

I don't know how close a PPQ M2 is to the gun you mentioned but I rented one of them at the range I go to and the trigger was great but the grip was a little small for me and I don't have big hands at all. I'm still looking at them and thinking about getting a PPQ M2 just haven't made the final decision yet.

PPQ is a nice firearm. I have one. Great trigger. Fits me better than a VP9 but not as good as a 320. Try them all and see which fits you best and has the qualities you want.

See now I sold my P320 to my soon to be in law, because the Walther PPQ M2 in 45ACP fit my hand better then my P320 in 9MM did. Anyway, I have still have over a 1/2 dozen Sigs that I will probably never sell. He was hot as all get out to get that P320 and I liked my Legion P229 9MM more then my P320 so for me it was easy to just sell the P320 now and maybe someday get one with the Romeo sights down the road.

I have not shot one, but I have molested this one along with the standard PPQ. I think both are fantastic offerings, but I prefer the original. It seems to fit in my hand a little better, and I prefer the paddle mag release. That said, I would not turn either one down. Fantastic pistols. I ultimately chose the HK VP9 over the PPQ, however, b/c I liked the ergos and trigger better. The PPQ trigger, while extremely nice, breaks more toward the rear of the trigger guard while the VP9s is a little sooner. Also, the bore axis on the VP9 is slightly lower than that on the PPQ.

Walther PPQ - My fav striker fired handgun!! She's a nice size pistol with the best striker trigger, quickest reset and most comfy grip. Yeah, PPQ was my best and last striker CCW, and while I haven't carried her in years - can't bring myself to sell this fine pistol...

She's wearing a Talon grip cover.



Cheers

It may not fit everyone but you won't find a better striker fired pistol today.

All I can say is the PPQ M2 in 45ACP fits my hand much better then the Sig P320 did. All in all, I still liked the P320, but would probably get that with the Romeo sight moving forward if I ever get another P320.

I have owned the original PPQ since it first came out. I can not recommend it high enough. As always best to try one out to see how it fits and works for you. They are popular so it should not be hard to find a place to rent one.

I had mine with me when I went to range last Wednesday. Always brings a smile to my face when shooting it.

^You have huge hands - the small backstrap is all I use, although the medium is fine too for me -

I love my PPQ M2 9mm - its getting Trugo TFX Pro's on it as we speak - I actually own the Navy case for it which was a good investment as it has spaces for all my PPQ paraphernalia and the 4 additional magazines I have for it (no suppressor) -

When I get a PPQ 45 I will get another case for that one too, its really an attractive "operators" package" when in the Navy case -

Besides a future stipple job perhaps (or I could do the easy way and put some Talon grips on), and night sights if you prefer, the PPQ needs nothing - its reliable, and dead accurate of a pistol -

I've got both the Walther p99 AS and the PPQ M1 (paddle mag release). Had the M2 but didn't like it as much as the M1.

I think the Navy model is about the same as the M2 except it's got a hole drilled in it so water will drain out and a threaded barrel. As it is VERY unlikely I'll need to shoot a drowned gun and I have no need for a suppressor I passed on the Navy model.

I kinda divided my pistol purchasing....most of my metal guns are Sigs while most of my plastic pistols are Walthers. And for anyone who has tried a Walther 99 without the AS (Anti Stress) give the AS a try...totally different guns.

The AS is essentially a striker fired DA/SA pistol with the decocker "hidden" on the slide.


For me, it's the near perfect pistol. (Aside from my Browning HP, Sig P229E2, CZ 75b, Colt 1911 9mm, 92Fs and S&W 5906.)
