The Walther PPQ M2 comes with markings and logos.
The original is not a pure new development, but a further development of the successful P99. The abbreviation PPQ stands for Police-Pistol-Quick-Defense, which also indicates the exact orientation of the pistol, namely as a backup weapon for special police units. This can also be seen in the caliber selection. The pistol is available in the NATO standard 9x19 mm (9 mm Para) and equally for the US market in caliber .40 S&W. Meanwhile, the Walther PPQ M2 has long since conquered the civilian market as well.
The gas signal pistol impresses with the same feel and handling as the original. It is largely identical in construction to its prototype. The pistol is black burnished. The ergonomic grip, in the same color, is provided with a "Hi Grip" surface. Furthermore, the PPQ M2 has a magazine release on the side. The double-row magazine, which holds 15 rounds in 9mm P.A.K. caliber, has a high firing efficiency that also speaks for this pistol.
One looks in vain for a manual safety and a decocking button on the pistol. Safety is provided by the center tongue on the trigger, already known from the Glock, which means that only one shot is released when the finger is on the trigger. Once the gun is cocked, it is always ready to fire for quick reaction in an emergency situation. Consequently, the PPQ M2 has a single action trigger due to the permanently cocked condition.
The gun gives the shooter a positive impression, if you hold it in your hands for the first time, you will understand this opinion. The pistol simply exudes a sense of security.
The purchase and possession of all offered gas and signal weapons and the associated ammunition is permit-free from the age of 18.
