NRA Gun of the Week: Walther CCP Pistol

The evolution of Walther Arms begins in 1886 with hunting and target rifles, and progresses to pistol production in 1908, initiated by Fritz Walther, the son of company founder Carl Walther. The Model 6 was the company’s first attempt at chambering a pistol for 9 mm Luger, but due to a failed blowback design, only about 1,000 units were made. Nearly 100 years later, Walther has another 9 mm Luger pistol—the CCP (Concealed Carry Pistol)—this time employing a gas-delayed blowback operation that really works. Watch the video above as American Rifleman's Kelly Young offers the rundown on the latest NRA Gun of the Week, the Walther CCP. For more visit, waltherarms.com
