The Walther CCP 9 mm semi-automatic pistol, introduced in 2014, quickly rose in popularity among the concealed-carry crowd, and found particular favor among women. It even won a Shooting Illustrated Golden Bullseye Award. Although the firearm was designed for a wide variety of shooters, the pistol includes ergonomics and features that many women gravitate toward—a slim grip frame, easily manipulated slide, bright sights, ideal barrel length, easy trigger pull and soft, manageable recoil. Thus, the pistol was included in the first American Rifleman Ladies Pistol Project, where it ranked second overall among the favorites based on survey results.
Now Walther has introduced the CCP M2, which retains all of the beloved features of the original model while incorporating a few consumer-suggested modifications. First on the list is a tool-less takedown to better facilitate the cleaning process. It also now has a red visual cocking indicator.
“We knew we had a great pistol in the CCP, but listening to our consumers drove us to upgrade certain features,” said Bret Vorhees, director of product development for Walther Arms, Inc. “The new tool-less take down, on top of the grip that seems to fit every hand, and the reduced recoil benefits of the soft-coil system, makes this pistol the perfect option for any shooter.
The new Walther CCP M2 was also included in the 3rd Annual Ladies Pistol Project, held in July 2018. Data from this latest survey will be presented at the NRA Carry Guard Expo in Richmond, Va., in September 2018.
The CCP M2 is offered with a black with Cerakote or stainless slide, and with an option for a Viridian red laser. MSRP starts at $469.
