Walther fans will be pleased to learn that the long-awaited subcompact version of the company’s double-stack PPQ semi-automatic pistol has finally arrived. A striker-fired, single-action handgun like its full-size brother, the PPQ SC measures 5.4" long with a 3.5" barrel, and has an empty weight of only 21.2 ozs. Available initially chambered only in 9 mm Luger, the handgun comes with two magazines, one flush-fitting 10-round box and one 15-rounder with a polymer sleeve that extends the SC’s grip for increased control. Making use of the reversible push-button magazine release of Walther’s M2 configuration, the new PPQ SC also features bilateral slide releases, interchangeable backstrap inserts, a two-slot accessory rail molded into the dustcover and low-profile, three-dot sights. waltherarms.com
