Walther showed off three new handguns in Houston at the 2013 NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits: the PPQ M2, PPX and the PPK/S .22. Based on the popular PPQ, the PPQ M2 features a push-button magazine release, which is reversible for right- or left-hand operation, and is offered in 9 mm and .40 S&W. The PPQ M2 also features low-profile, 3-dot polymer combat sights, a Tenifer-coated slide and barrel, and front and rear slide serrations for smooth slide operation. The ambidextrous slide stop locks back on empty and the gun includes three safeties, a quick-defense trigger, checkered trigger guard and custom accessory rail.

The new PPX is a great choice for everyday carry. This full-featured Walther retails for under $500 and comes in 9 mm and .40 S&W in either black or stainless. The PPX features 3-dot sights, a loaded chamber viewport, hammer-fired action, ambidextrous slide stop, push button thumb-operated magazine release, a constant 6.5 lb trigger pull and a Mil-std-1913 Picatinny accessory mounting rail.



The PPK/S .22 is based off of the iconic PPK made famous by James Bond. Identical to the PPK in .380, the PPK/S .22 will provide hours of fun and inexpensive shooting with minimal recoil. It features fixed steel sights, a manual safety, internal slide stop, beavertail extension, a classic Walther grip, and comes with a double or single-action trigger. The PPK/S 22 comes with a 10-round magazine.
