Walther PPQ – Next Generation M2 Series

    Walther PPQ

    Walther announced an upgrade to the PPQ pistol for 2013.  Called the PPQ M2, the updated gun features interchangeable back straps on a polymer frame, is striker-fired and will be available in both 9mm and .40 S&W.  The new PPQ will also feature a reversible magazine release in the traditional push-button form.

    The trigger is “pre-cocked,” which Walther states gives a light (5.6 pounds on average) and crisp trigger pull.  Barrel length is four inches.
