1/10/13

Walther Firearms unveils the new PPX for 2013. This pistol is a great self-defense or concealed carry option, practical enough for everyday use. The PPX is a hammer-fired semi-auto pistol with a smooth pre-cocked trigger. It comes in 9 mm and .40 S&W in a black or stainless version. The barrel is 4 inches, and comes with adjustable low-profile three-dot polymer combat sights, for rapid aiming and target acquisition. The PPX also comes with a Mil-std-1913 Picatinny accessory mounting rail for any tactical devices, lasers or lights. The Tenifer coated slide and barrel helps to resist corrosion, while the PPX's smooth and constant 6.5 lb trigger pull allows for greater accuracy and control.

The safety features include a loaded chamber viewport to help identify if the gun is loaded, two safeties, and a firing pin block. The PPX is a versatile pistol with its reversible push button thumb-operated magazine release for left- and right-handed shooters. The 9 mm has a magazine capacity of 16 rounds, and the .40 S&W has a 14-round capacity.

MSRP: $449 to $499

I just bought it today. There is no external safeties that I can see--none. Feels good--hope it shoots as good as it feels. Trigger pull is nice--better than several rugers that I have tried. I don't have buyers remorse yet--will shoot it next week, but was torn between a SAR in 9mm and this walther. The price new out the door with tax was $410.00--about $30.00 more than the SAR.

Ruined a perfectly good gun by eliminating the paddle magazine release. I was looking forward to adding this to my P22 and PK380 group.

The PPX is an excellent shooter. I had no FTF or FTE problems at all. It is a little hard to load the mag at first but bearable.Excellent gun for the price.

this gun has no external safeties that I can see.There aren't any mentioned in the manual or on the schematic.Putting cartridges in the magazine is a total finger breaker too.I'm experiencing a little buyers remorse truth be told.If this larger gun were as well thought out as my beautiful little Walther P-22 and you didn't need the strength of a gorilla to load it, there would be no problem. Thanks, S.
