Walther Announces Its First .45-Cal. Pistol

Walther has added a .45-cal. version to its popular PPQ line of pistols, making it the first true production Walther .45 Auto in the company's history. The new model, expected to be on dealers’ shelves on Oct. 1, 2015, comes equipped with the Carl Walther signature quick-defense trigger (5.6 lbs), traditional front and rear slide serrations, and fully ambidextrous controls. It also houses three separate safeties. A mil-spec Picatinny rail allows shooters to add accessories. With an overall length of 7.4” and a 12-round magazine capacity, it features a polygonal rifled 4.25” barrel—an upgrade from the traditional button rifling process.

"We are excited to bring a .45 Auto to the Walther line. This new caliber and product offering is a benchmark for Walther and the PPQ,” said Cyndi Flannigan, Walther Arms' Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “We have built it to the same exact German standards that have made this model so well received and it is a superior choice for home defense and personal protection."
