Walther ppq m2 40
 
Anyone own one of these in this forum? If so how do you like it and have you had any problems? I have been doing some searching and only found problems with the 40 cal version as far a malfunctions go, although it's been few and far between. I'm gonna get one in a couple days and haven't decided which one to get 9 or 40. I have good 9 and 40 pistols so I'm not in need of either just like this model. I also hear s&w parted ways with walther so if I have problems will this gun need to be shipped out of the country by me? Not really liking the thought of that.

i had one of the older Walther PPQ models in 40 and it was a very well made pistol and well functioning with every type of ammo i shot through it. never had any problems. Walther has a solid reputation for making well made firearms.

i think any warranty concerns can be handle right here in the USA if it's needed. might need to verify that for sure though.

So axxe you got rid of yours? What didn't you like about it? If you could do over would you have just got the 9mm instead? Sorry for the interrogation but I am really interested in this firearm and will probably get one Saturday and would love to hear your overall view of this weapon as you actually owned one

i liked the pistol. ergonomics were good for my hand. it shot well and performed just as it should. i just don't stay emotionally attached to my polymer pistols like others. some guns in my collection will never be traded or sold and some are always trading material for something different. so my trading the PPQ had nothing to do with anything wrong or it not performing, just something i do from time to time when i see something else i want more.

i wouldn't hesitate in buying another one, but i think my next polymer pistol in 40 is going to be a compact XDm40 or a compact M&P 40 . unless i luck into another PPQ!

I have the PPQ M2 in 9mm, and think it is the cat's behind. I cannot think of one negative thing to say about it. Eats all ammo, looks good, feels good and shoots accurately. And everybody I have let shoot it walks away impressed.

I have an older ppq in 40. It may just be me,but I can't warm up to 40.I shoot just about every cal. There is,and for some reason,40 just bothers the hell out of me.I have a glock 24 tricked out as a racer,but can't warm up to it either. The only 40 that is bearable is my Sig 229 Sport 5in. Comped target gun. The PPQ feels great,excellent trigger,amazing reset,it's just the combo of polymer,short barrel,and snappy 40,that I can't handle. Should have bought it in 9mm instead.

not everyone warms up to the 40. nothing to feel bad about. i'll bet you would love the PPQ in a 9mm.

Yeah 40 is a snappy round for sure. I have a glock 23 that's manageable with recoil and since the ppq is roughly the same size I wouldn't want it to be more felt recoil and muzzle flip than my glock. I might just get the 9 instead. I didn't make it today and plan on going Monday. I've narrowed it down between the ppq and a sig 2022, leaning heavy on the walther

Got my ppq 40 and love the feel of this gun. Don't know when I will be shooting it though between work , weather and family. I can't wait to shoot this gun.
