First Look: Walther PDP Color Options

Walther PDP Color Options

With the successful launch of the polymer-framed PDP 9 mm handgun like just last year, for 2022, Walther Arms has announced new color options for the PDP line. Traditionally, the Walther PDP lineup was only offered with black polymer frames. Now Walther has introduced three additional colors, green, gray and tan. With these new color options, only the grip frame is colored, with the rest of the metal and polymer components remaining in black. 

This results in a two-tone color scheme, which will be the case for all versions of the PDP offered with the color options. These colors will be offered for the full-size framed PDPs with 5" and 4.5" barrels, as well as PDPs with the compact frame and 4" barrel. The suggested retail price for all PDPs with color options, regardless of size, is $709.
