Walther Arms has added to its Concealed Carry Pistol line with the addition of its CCP M2 380. To understand the genius of the system, it is important to look back to 2014 when the American market received a unique pistol from Walther Arms that featured a gas-operated system with a fixed barrel. Walther dubbed the then-new operating system Softcoil, and since inception, the consumer market has shown Walther’s CCP design is here to stay.
The CCP M2 380 is designed to strike a balance between a pistol with ease of use and the ability to be concealed while containing features that are appealing to the EDC aficionado. The company’s Softcoil system operates the CCP M2 380 via gas-delayed blowback operation. Walther provides a 3.54” fixed barrel and an adjustable three-dot sight arrangement for reliable accuracy. The gun’s black polymer frame features sound ergonomics that combines form and function with a .380 ACP cartridge to present a defensive-use pistol to those with limited dexterity and recoil sensitivity.
An eight-round detachable box magazine is included. The pistol can be disassembled without tools. Overall weight of the pistol is expected to sit in the hand at 19 ozs. The CCP M2 380 boxes 5.12” x 6.41”. A manual safety is provided, with up being the "safe" position. Walther includes a reversible magazine release and a three-slot section of Picatinny rail for accessories. Additionally, the CCP M2 380 features wide-cut serrations both fore and aft the aluminum slide.
American Rifleman’s range evaluation of the Walther Arms CCP M2 380 validates the value it presents to the consumer—sound ergonomics and an easy-to-shoot platform tailored for personal protection is sure to be an additional success for the German manufacturer.
