[SHOT 2022] Walther Unveils PDP SD Pro

    Walther Unveils PDP SD Pro

    Today at Shot Show’s Industry Day at the Range, Walther showed off for the first time their brand new PDP SD Pro. Walther’s PDP handgun was released in February of 2021 as a successor to the highly-regarded PPQ. The PDP provided a factory optics cut slide, a more aggressive grip serration pattern, and an upgraded trigger when compared to the old PPQ models.

    Today with Walther’s new PDP SD Pro, Walther takes another step forward in the duty handgun market. Just like when Walther moved from the PPQ to the PDP, the SD Pro model makes minor tweaks into a huge shift. The SD Pro model will come from the factory with a threaded barrel, the Walther Upgraded Dynamic Performance Trigger, a reinforced optic cut, and a magwell extension.

    The Upgraded Dynamic Performance Trigger isn’t just a shoe replacement for the stock PDP trigger, it’s an entire upgrade package, featuring a lighter trigger pull, a crisper reset, and a shorter take-up. While the original PDP is definitely a duty pistol, after all, “PDP” stands for Performance Duty Pistol, the new SD Pro feels like a competition handgun in every way. The beveled and flared magwell, threaded barrel for a compensator, and upgraded trigger, scream 2/3-gun.
