NRA Gun of the Week: Walther Arms PPS M2

Walther’s PPS was ahead of the concealed-carry curve when it was first brought to the American market in 2008. It was a slim, single-stack, 9 mm semi-automatic that featured a double-action-only trigger and striker-fired operation. The gun was successful, but retained some European-inspired styling and controls, including the bilateral, paddle-style magazine release located at the bottom rear of the trigger guard. In 2016, Walther introduced an updated model that sought to improve function and better suit American tastes. Upgrades to the PPS M2 include a more ergonomic polymer frame, forward serrations on the slide and a left-side, button-style magazine release. American Rifleman’s Christopher Olsen reviews the Walther Arms PPS M2 in the this week's NRA Gun of the Week video above. For more, visit WaltherArms.com
